Your favourite childhood memory?

Going to scrap yards and tinkering with cars with my dad, he had some pretty cool cars during his early mid-life crisis... including an Escort Cosworth with the silly spoiler.

Something that not many people know about you?

I was born with a hole in my heart, I got fixed but kept having to go to go back and to hospital until I was about 6. It put me behind in school so I hated going... I used to climb up trees and hide in random places so I didn't have to go... I'm now a pro at hide and seek, also climbing.

My dad’s old chopper bike, we've restored it. It's even got a skull and cross bones flag on it, the last time I rode it some 12 year old called me a C word.

What did you want to be when you were a kid?

A sniper but my dreams were dashed when I found out I was colour blind, can't be shooting the wrong side and all that...

If I'm not working I'm...

Running around with my Border Collie, Alfie.
