"It's physically impossible to eat a spoonful of cinnamon."
Leona Lewis answers a load of questions we once asked Lil'Chris…
Leona Lewis is doing quite well for herself. 'Bleeding Love' is the fastest selling single of the year and more than two million people have watched the video on YouTube in the last week.
While all this was going on, we asked Leona a few questions. We didn't want to add too much to her heavy workload, so we asked her some questions we already had knocking around.
It was decided that she would not answer some questions but here are the ones she did respond to.
