WHEN DID YOU START TAEKWONDO AND WHY: I was 11. I went out with my friend, Becky, to the Liverpool Elite club. She eventually quit, I didn't.

OTHER SPORTS PLAYED: I got involved with every sport; but I really enjoyed dancing and tennis.

AMBITION: Olympic gold.

WHY SHOULD THE PUBLIC WATCH TAEKWONDO: It's so dynamic. There are unexpected elements. It's not a boring sport.

IF SOMEONE GAVE YOU £1 MILLION, WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH IT: I would make sure I got that Olympic gold and then just spend, spend spend...I would blow it. I'm not going to lie.

SOMETHING YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT BIANCA WALKDEN: Can burp on demand! Can't stay still for five minutes. Never shut up.
