Heather Rabbatts

Kirsty Young's castaway is the businesswoman Heather Rabbatts.

Born in Jamaica and raised in Britain, her early years were unpromising and she left school with just a few O levels. But after evening classes, she studied law and became a barrister before making her name as the youngest council chief in the country.

She's at home in the toughest business environments - from Millwall Football Club to the Royal Opera House - and says: "I definitely like being in charge and I've always felt that I can gather everyone's spirits and energies to take that jump into the unknown together."

Record: Que Sera Sera by Corinne Bailey Rae
Book: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
