Week Clue
1 "One two, one two. Hello, my beautiful creatures and welcome to 'The Fishbowl'. I'm Lionfish and it's my pleasure to be your host this evening. I'm aiming to bring some sole to the proceedings. I hope that joke wasn't too cheesy. They say it's never too late to start, and trust me I should know. I might be a lionfish, but I'm very gentle, I promise! I only use my barbs to defend myself when absolutely necessary. So fear not, I'm here to have a good time and I'm hoping to get under the skins of this fabulous costume."
2 "Now I don't want to 'carp' on about it, but in my last performance, I struck a note with the panel. Although, they're still fishing my real name and i'm not planning on being their 'catch of the day' any time soon. Cultivating good friendships is something I think is very important in life, so I do hope we can be pals. Supporting and celebrating one another is something I'm very passionate about. Strong female figures have always been a great source of inspiration for me. They have helped me to grow as a person and I like to honour that. There is a quiet but powerful strength in femininity. So to be no surprise to tell you, that I'm a feminist. Am I being mysterious? Good, I do love a mystery."
