Giovanna Fletcher plays the drums when home alone
Giovanna Fletcher plays the drums when she's home alone.
The 37-year-old author - who is married McFly star Tom Fletcher and has sons Buzz, seven, Buddy, five, and Max, three, with her significant other - was taught to play the drums by Tom's bandmate Harry Judd, and she likes to "bash out a rhythm" when alone.
She is quoted by the Daily Star newspaper as saying: "I really like playing the drums. I’m not very good. Harry Judd taught me how to play a bit about 15 years ago.
"When none of the kids are in I quite like sitting down and bashing out a rhythm!"
It comes as the 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' winner - who made her West End debut in thriller play '2:22 A Ghost Story', taking over the role of Jenny from pop star Lily Allen - suffered an ankle injury when she fell over on stage, meaning that she had to return to the show wearing a boot.
She said: "I’m wearing a boot on stage. Jenny as a character is very driven and doing things on the stage, there is a lot of doing. I thought, do we have to tweak anything? Turns out she’s just slightly slower, but still faster than normal people on stage. So it’s worked out fine."
The bestselling writer has also admitted she was "glad" to have not seen the Danny Robins play before taking over the role from the 'Smile' hitmaker.
She recently said: "None of us saw the old production, which I’m kind of glad about. We would have been saying ‘why did Lily do this? How did she interpret this?’ Because I had no idea, all of us have been able to explore it in our own way and the director has really let us do that as well. He’s not trying to create the same thing, he’s allowed us to make our own discoveries."
