“I’m happy with the simple things”
What was your first job?
Funnily enough, I used to clean the wagons at Birchall Foodservice after school a couple of days a week. A job managing director Justin Birchall will confirm I was rubbish at. I returned in my current role a couple of years ago.
How would your colleagues describe you?
They would say one thing, and that is ‘bald’.
If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport that would give you a chance of winning a medal, what would it be?
Cleaning. I realise that makes me sound sad, but I love it.
If time and money were not an issue, what hobby would you most like to get into?
Property development has always been something that I’d love to get involved in.
What would your perfect day involve?
Watching my beloved Burnley play football, beer, friends and live music. I’m happy with the simple things in life.
What is your song of choice at karaoke?
I genuinely hate karaoke, and have never sung a song in my life. If I was forced to choose a song, though, it’d probably be… no, actually, I would never sing at karaoke.
Who would be your four ideal dinner party guests?
Morrissey would be the first, and I’d ask him why he’s become so bitter. My favourite Burnley player, Ashley Barnes, would also be in attendance and I would shake his hand. The other two would be Danny Dyer, whom I’d love to be insulted by, and the genius that is Steve Coogan.
What would you cook them?
I’d have to make something vegan for Morrissey, but for the rest of us, I’d probably make loads of tapas to keep things casual.
Which fads or trends would you like to see make a comeback?
It would be great to see Tamagotchis again.
If you were a superhero, what would you choose as your superpower?
It would definitely be the ability to fly. Public transport is a nightmare in this country, and I cannot stand being stuck in traffic. Being able to fly from one place to another would certainly make life a lot easier.
What do you wish you knew more about?
Women. That way, I wouldn’t get on my fiancée’s nerves so much.
When was the last time you changed your belief or opinion about
Brexit. I was fairly adamant that remain was the most sensible vote at the time of the referendum. However, since the vote, I’ve heard a lot of sensible arguments for leaving the EU.
