What would be your ideal weekend destination?

Anywhere hot with a beach with my wife and son. I love Lanzarote. It’s always hot but there’s a bit of a breeze. We went there on our honeymoon, so it’s special for that reason too.

Not counting your loved ones, who would be your dream companion?

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. I’d love to hang out with those weirdos (and by ‘weird’, I mean cool weird).

What music would you take with you?

Anything from the 1980s. I was in my 20s then and it was the best.

What about something to read?

Sylvester Stallone’s autobiography. I’ve just started it. A lot of people don’t realise how intelligent he is. He has a speech impediment and a high IQ.

What would be your ultimate way to relax?

Just lying by the pool. On our honeymoon, we would take tea cups out to the pool with us at 10am. Everyone thought we were having tea, but actually it was red wine.

If money were no object, which shop would you head for?

Mercedes Benz to test-drive them all and then buy the most expensive one.

What’s your all-time favourite film?

Jaws. In my childhood, my brothers convinced me there were lake sharks and I wouldn’t swim in lakes after watching it. I love Rocky too. He’s the ultimate down and outer getting a shot and taking it.

We’re buying the drinks tonight. What’s your poison?

Lager, Kronenbourg 1664 because 1664 makes me laugh.

It’s what you call women who you see from behind and they have long blond hair and nice figures then when you get round the front they are old and haggard. Me and my friends call them Kronenbourgs.

What are you doing this weekend?

Having a break from the tour this weekend to be a dad and husband. We’ll probably go to Gunwharf for a meal, walk around, then come home and put Joel to bed and put our feet up with a glass of wine and a DVD... bliss.

What’s a favourite local

destination for a weekend day out?

We enjoy walking around Gunwharf. We take the ferry over and wander round the shops and have some lunch. The ultimate night out for us is to leave Joel with his grandparents and go there for dinner and a movie.
