If you recognise Billie JD Porter, you might be a regular reader of French style bible Jalouse magazine (they're obsessed with her Brit girl style), you may have watched (and giggled at) The Joy of Teen Sex on Channel 4 (she presented it back in 2011) or perhaps you're a subscriber to Vice magazine's video channel (yup, you guessed it, she appears there too). Well as of 9pm tomorrow night, and the next two Wednesdays, Billie will be beaming into your living room via BBC Three's Secrets of South America documentary series, finding out what it's like to be a teen in Venezuela, Brazil and Argentina. We caught up with the 21-year-old multi-tasker about TV icons, personal style and more.
I predict in 2014, I’ll be wearing lots of: 'Corduroy. I wore so much of it in my teens and I had these amazing faded purple trousers from Gap. Need to find some more of those.'
I definitely won’t be wearing: 'Never say never... I'll kind of wear anything, with very hit-and-miss results.'
My 2014 will be all about: 'Definitely more writing and hopefully more docs. I'm kind of enjoying the fact I don't know where I'm going next.'

The person on TV whose style I admire most: 'Probably Kim Kardashian. She's not my "style icon" and we certainly don't dress similarly – I'm kinda scruffy – but I always think she looks incredible.'
Best ever TV star’s style: 'Hilary from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. She always had amazing two-piece suits. Like a cooler Cher Horowitz.'
If I could revisit any style era it would be: 'The 70s. I kind of detest "boho", but I love the more garish stuff like stupid flares and platforms.'

The documentary presenter I admire most: 'Nick Broomfield. I also love everything Louis Theroux has ever done, but I don't know if that's because I'm actually in love with him. Broomfield can carry a film even if he never meets his subject. I think it's such an interesting method of documentary making.'

My favourite song lyric: 'Every Prefab Sprout lyric is amazing. I think most people find them incredibly cheesy, but I really am in love with most of their stuff, especially: "I'm a liberal guy, too cool for the macho ache / With a secret tooth, for the cherry on the cake / With a pious smile, a smile that changes what I say / While I waste my time, in regretting that the days / Went from perfect to just OK" (Cruel by Prefab Sprout).'
Go-to party anthem: 'Buffalo Stance by Neneh Cherry.'
Currently reading: 'Requiem For a Dream by Hubert Selby Jr. Uplifting!'
