Desert island DVD, CD and book
CD would be George Benson’s Give Me The Night, the DVD would be Chariots of Fire, and the book 22/11/63 by Stephen King
I had a paper round but I went straight into a golf shop out of school.
Favourite musician I like all sorts. I love Jamiroquai, though
Favourite food & drink
Swedish meatballs, and red wine. I don’t drink much though. I had a glass of wine last night and it’s the first I’ve had in seven weeks. It doesn’t agree with me
A £500 Mini 850 in red, with windows that slid
Favourite sport away from golf
I love athletics. All the track and field events
Who’d play you in a film?
My wife would love it to be Edward in the King’s Speech. What’s his name… Colin Firth!
