Who the heck are you?
Chances are that if I’m on the radio, then someone else is off…! But it’s ok I’m fully qualified to deal with most situations and have a level 3 dolphin swimming badge. I’m from Batley originally, just downwind from the biscuit factory and the pleasant aroma of a party ring in the air.. I started doing radio when I joined a lunchtime club at school, and this plan to escape wet playtimes has led me to where I am now. I’ve been with Real Radio in Yorkshire since its launch in 2002, and in that time I’ve done pretty much every show we have! When I’m not on air I’m also the Head Of Presentation which is a very important thing obviously.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Tomato sauce, with pretty much everything!
What is your biggest fail to date?
Define biggest… But I once mistakenly announced a stampede of bulls heading for York City Centre on some travel news.. It made the papers.
Your best celeb story?
I interviewed the Prime Minister, and I’ve also taken Rachel Stevens for fish & chips. Not on the same day though.
What is your karaoke star turn?
Something instrumental, maybe Jean Michelle Jarre
If you were a Muppet who would you be and why?
Fozzy Bear, just cos he’s a bear – although I am unable to perform on the piano.
