Home life

What is an ability you wish you had?  I wish I could teleport so no more being stuck in traffic or having to spend hours at the airport!

What’s currently on top of your bucket list?  My ultimate dream would be to go to the Super Bowl, it’s the perfect combo of a major sporting event and concert all in one.

What’s the one talent people would be surprised to know about you? I’m a qualified football referee and I have even refereed a few Cup Finals.

Your karaoke song of choice?  I’d have to say Rockstar by Nickelback or any song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Brown or red sauce? Brown for breakfast e.g. bacon/sausage butty and then red for everything else!

Go to comfort food? You can’t go wrong with a cheesy pizza or a cookie.

Best box set TV binge and why? I’d say Money Heist is the best but for something I watch all the time it has to be ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ or ‘Peep Show’.
