WONDERLAND: What’s your most vivid childhood memory?
My Grandad was a really talented, hard-working builder. I can remember being about 2 and standing down in the foundations of our kitchen with him, watching him work.
 
Who is your hero?
It’s cheesy, but it’s my mum. Her integrity and selflessness absolutely astounds me.

What’s your favourite item of clothing?
My girlfriend bought me a t-shirt with Walter White from ‘Breaking Bad’ on it. People who watch it give you little nods of appreciation in the street, like you’re all in a secret club.

Are you a lover or a fighter?
I’m a lover. I can be a bloody grump but I never go throwing my weight around.

What would you rather die without having?
Sunshine. This six month winter we’ve just had is the closest I’ve ever come to killing myself
 
Marmite or Nutella?
Nutella. Marmite is an evil, terrible thing.

What’s your biggest fear?
Sea monsters. Seriously.

What would you do if you were PM?
I’m not going to get on my political high-horse, so lets keep it light and say “Three Day Weekends”.

What’s your secret talent?
I can play the ukulele.

Where is your favourite place in the world?
I went to Venice a couple of years ago and fell in love with it. It just looked like it had been designed as a giant level in a video game. Everything about it didn’t quite seem real.

What is you ultimate hiding place?
I genuinely have a collection of videos on my phone of me jumping out and scaring my brother, my girlfriend and my mate. I’m a Northern Ninja.
