I'm a broadcaster on 5 Live and my staple diet these days is reading the sport on Victoria Derbyshire's show and the Midday programme.

This summer I'll be dabbling in some tennis at Wimbledon and the US Open - sandwiched between that I'll be with the British Olympic team at their holding camp in Macau. I gather it's the Las Vegas of the Far East - here's hoping so because last time I was in Vegas I won $1000 on the slots!

Other than that, I'm usually in a snooker press room.

The green baize game has consumed me ever since the tender age of 11, when I watched spellbound as Alex "Hurricane" Higgins outpotted Jimmy "Whirlwind" White at The Crucible.

If I'm not talking about coloured balls, I'll probably be reporting from an athletics stadium - I've become Dwain Chambers's personal stalker.

My 'free' time is filled (to the brim) by my wife and two sons. Relaxation is defined by a glass of sauvignon blanc, a spot of Sopranos and blast of Radiohead.
