Q: A potted history…

I was conceived in Malta, born and bred In Lincoln, went to University in Canterbury, and met my Girlfriend at a speed dating evening when the idea was still very much in its conceptual phase. We now live in a graveyard in Cambridge…sweet progress!

Q: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

An Ice Cream Man or an Airline Pilot. I developed a keen interest in food and travel from an early age.

Q: What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you? (on or off the air – your choice)

Got my right knee stuck in railings at Shrewsbury train station aged 16, missing that day's last connecting train to Bangor, our holiday destination! 

Q: What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?

Pot washer at an establishment called ‘Sam & Ellas’.

Q: Do you have a catchphrase?

Oh, if you’re making one…

Q: What was the first record you ever bought?

Adam and the Ants – Kings of the Wild Frontier. ( It still holds up today).

Q: What’s your favourite food?

Fruit de mare.

Q: When Hollywood comes calling, who’ll play you?

As a child I was a big fan of anything by Oliver Postgate, Bagpus, The Clangers, Ivor the Engine etc. So a biography would have to be a cartoon.

The 2005 Ashes series on DVD.

10) What do you do to relax?

Play tennis with someone almost as good as me.
