1. Do you have a middle name? And a nickname you’re willing to share?
Coincidentally my middle name is Clair (yes without the e at the end). How about that - two Claires on Carte Blanche.
No one calls me by my middle name and I love and prefer my first name; Masa because of its sePedi origins and meaning to me and my family. My friends have shortened my already-short name and call me 'Mas' and my dad has always nicknamed me 'Nana' which means baby.
2. Your favourite getaway or wind-down activity…
Reading a great book, deep sea diving (somewhere with beautiful ocean life), somewhere tropical.
3. If you could choose a job that is far removed from TV and presenting, what would it be?
4. What can’t you live without?
5. Do you have any hidden talents – or a party trick?
I think I may have hidden talents, but they are so good at hiding I am yet to find them. I will let you know when I do and we can organise a party.
6. Top holiday destination…
I have been fortunate enough to have been able to travel a bit from an early age with my family and have visited some amazing places. Of all the incredible destinations my favourite holiday was in Kenya. We visited Mombasa, a tropical island off the coast of Kenya and it was hands-down the most beautiful place with the warmest people - I will never forget them all. It's been 15 years since that holiday and I will certainly go back. I would also love to visit some of the many places on my bucket list that I've never been to such as: Italy, Ghana, Cameroon, Maldives, Zambia, Mali, Greece, Spain and so many more.
7. Your favourite food that you’ve mastered in the kitchen…
I am the Master of Potato Bake. I make the best potato bake. I love potatoes just generally; there is so much you can do with a potato. I also make the most delicious grilled cheese sandwiches.
