We caught up with presenter Becca Dudley at The Rum Kitchen, Notting Hill to sink some cocktails and gab about music.
Name Becca Dudley
Mission in Life To be an expert at the things I love to do
Hot water bottle song that makes everything ok? Protoje – No Lipstick. The acoustic vibes at the beginning just chill me out straight away
Guaranteed dance floor filler tune? Get Busy – Sean Paul… everyone loves a lil Seanah Paul
Guilty pleasure song? Anything by Taylor Swift… so freaking catchy
Your 3 favourite songs at the moment?
Damian Marley – Hard Work
Busy Signal – Missing You
Herve & Zebra Katz – Tear The House Up
Best piece of advice that someone has given you? My Mum told me to remember that ‘life isn’t a fairy tale’ and weirdly that helps me get through the hard times – everyone has their problems and life goes on!
Scariest Moment during a set/show? The first time I did live filming. I was presenting the Topman Design Show at LCM and had 5 people talking in my ear, a bunch of cameras and no script! I’m prepared for anything now…
Rainy Day Movie? Bring It On, Clueless or Mean Girls. I genuinely know the words to all three… must have had a lot of rainy days.
Your favourite London hang-out? The Kings Head in Dalston is always a good vibe. It’s super interesting to look around, loads of themed animal rooms, great food, cocktails and awesome people.
Where would we find you on a typical Friday night? In a restaurant, eating Thai food, or at my mates house, eating Thai food, or at home with a Thai takeaway, or in bed, with Thai food.
What’s next for Becca Dudley? Hopefully a bunch of new TV shows! As well as really knuckling down in the music world, plus I just started a new radio show on Hoxton Radio, which might open a few doors. I may have a cheeky brand collab coming out soon too.
