What is the best thing about your job?

I love it. And I realise an awful lot of people don't like what they do. I feel very lucky.

Who do you most admire?

Working Mums. Anyone who does the office/home juggle year after year has a tough gig.

You always feel like you're forgetting something or someone! (And sometimes you are!)

What is your greatest extravagance?

Going out for dinner.

What is your biggest regret?

Don't think I have any. I try to learn from my mistakes and move on. Looking back won't really help most times.

What is your greatest achievement?

My two beautiful boys and my marriage of nearly 20 years.

What is your hidden talent?
Think I've just about shared most things in 11 years on Sunrise.. No talents hidden that I can think of.
What is your most treasured possession?
The cocktail ring my Mum gave me for my 40th birthday.. And the jade bracelet my husband gave me a couple of Christmases ago.

What is your favourite food and drink?

I love entrees and canapes.. Small and tasty. And champagne.

Do you have any nicknames? How did you get them?

No. But I don't know anyone who calls me Natalie any more. Nat is fine. But I always introduce myself as Natalie. Strange that.

Finish this sentence. I love Sunrise because…

…I can be myself every day, and the boss likes it
