“Don’t get even, get medieval” is, in our humble opinion, a great motto. What’s yours?

“Learn your lines and turn up”.

 

Kerry Katona was considered unacceptable in 2007. Who or what is unacceptable in 2013?

I’d still say Kerry Katona. She will always be unacceptable and the little fella from North Korea is also unacceptable.

 

Tony Blair misses being Prime Minister. What do you miss most in your life?

My lovely nan, Madge Spreckley.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

I’d swap anything to be wealthy.

 

Donald Trump was once a case of: “If you owe the bank a thousand, they close you down; but if you owe the bank a billion, you own the bank”. What’s your view on the banking crisis?

Keep all your money under the mattress and never trust anyone in a pin-striped suit.

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

‘LOL’: There is no need for it in society.

 

In the UK, some people consider charity to “begin at home”. What’s your view and what causes do you personally support?

I support a load of charities and will always continue to do so. It’s amazing as an artist to do all I can for them. I’m involved with Support Our Forces, Wishes For Kids, Teenage Cancer Trust and two local charities close to my heart The Joe Humphries Memorial Trust and ADAPT.

 

The judge in Law Abiding Citizen states: “I can pretty much do whatever I want” before being blown up whilst answering her mobile phone. What’s your view on the appropriate use of such devices?

They are incredibly handy but I love the old days of sending letters and postcards. I think there is no romance in sending a text. But they should never be used to blow anyone up.

If you could fill a carriage on The Orient Express, who would be your fellow passengers?

My fiancée, Elvis, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Chaz and Dave, Muhammed Ali and Einstein.

 

If you were unfortunate enough to end up on death row, what would be your last meal and where would you eat it?

I’d have a bacon sandwich and I’d eat it on the run.

 

What time is it acceptable to consume the first drink of the day?

Anytime is acceptable. You have to listen to your palate.

 

A Negroni, a martini or a cup of tea?

A cup of tea.

 

Whose parties do you enjoy the most and why?

The Dancing Landlord parties at the Bulls Head in Countesthorpe, Leicester.

 

Who is the most positive person you know?

Kayleigh Ball, my fiancée.

 

What’s your most guilty pleasure?

Take That.

 

If a tattoo were to sum you up, what would it be of?

A lamp.

 

If you were a car, what marque would you be?

A Toyota Corolla 1.6CD in navy blue.

 

Cilla Black presented Surprise, Surprise. Tell us the most surprising thing about you.

I once won a fancy dressed competition at primary school dressed as Mr Blobby.

 

What’s currently sitting on your mantelpiece?

Car keys, a picture of me and the missus, a clock, a silver Buddha and several silver mushrooms.
