Jake Humphrey grew up on the outskirts of Norwich,
landed himself a job with CBBC and is now the popular presenter
Although he now lives in London, Jake comes back
to Norfolk as much as he can to watch his beloved Norwich City play
at Carrow Road and tuck in to some of his mum's home cooking.
Since 2003 Jake's been answering your questions
in our Ask Jake feature. We can't take any
more questions, but will be writing new features about Jake's latest
adventures from time-to-time.
Enjoy this last set of questions in Ask Jake.
Hey Jake, what's your favourite TV programme?
Stephanie, age 12 - Leeds
Well Stephanie as much as my fiancé
hates it, I watch all sport shows on TV, no matter how meaningless
and obscure they are.
I have also always enjoyed watching Football
Focus on Saturday afternoons, which is why i was so so so
excited to be given the chance to host the show.
I was mega nervous before the first programme
but dead pleased with how it went. Apart from sport I am a
fan of Spooks which is just brilliant and I love to finish
my Sunday afternoons with Planet Earth.
What inspired you to start presenting?
Billy, age 11 - Portsmouth
It was just something that happened Billy.
I was doing unpaid work-experience at a TV station in Norwich
and had to do some presenting because they had no money to
pay for proper presenters.
I enjoyed it, people said I was good and
then one thing lead to another and I ended up doing it for
I am the kind of person that when i decide
to do something I want to do it properly, so I now want to
be the best. A combination of Jonathon Ross, Des Lynham and
Jeremy Paxman all rolled into one!
If you had a million pounds, would you spend
it on clothes?
Christie, age 11 - Grangemouth
No, I'd spend it on crisps. I love them,
any flavour, any brand. I could eat crisps for breakfast,
lunch and dinner. Not to sure my waist would be pleased!
What is your favourite city?
Sandra, age 9 - Kosova
Abroad I love Venice Saranda, a beautiful
city that is so romantic. I come from Norwich so that is my
favourite all time city because my family live there. Having
said that, I've never been to Kosova which is supposed to
be beautiful. I must visit one day.
Are you filming any new shows?
Ella, age 12 - Halifax
Keep your eyes peeled for Wonderful World of Weird Ella! It
will be on early in 2007 and is a little strange, very very
funny and I reckon you'll love it. Keep you're eyes peeled!
I've seen you down at Carrow Road. Who is your fave Norwich
Amy, age 14 - Norwich
I think Hucks is a legend Amy. I remember the days when the
most exciting thing that happened was the half-time whistle!
was so exciting for Norwich to have a flair or luxury player
if you like. I know he can be a bit frustrating at times,
but it's well worth it when he sets off down the left.
What do you think love is?
| Love is......what i share with
my fiancé Harriet. We're getting married in August 2007
and I can't wait.
What's your most embarassing on live TV?
Joe, age 9 - Brighton
| There are LOADS Joe! I think
the worst though is the time that i was hosting Sportsround
live from Old Trafford. Someone turned on the sprinklers for
the pitch and I got soaked.....LIVE!!!!! Very embarassing and
very very wet!
