What's the most freaky thing that has happened in your life?
Sharing a bath with Pavarotti.

If you could take three different meals to a desert island what would they be?
Black pudding (for slow burning fuel on cold nights)
Ferrero Rocher (in case of an unexpected visit from someone quite important)
Roast beef monster munch (cos you don't get them back home)

Who are your three favourite comedians?
Lee Mack, Steve Williams, Flight of the Conchords (technically 4 – I know)

Who are the three people you would most like to have to dinner with?
Owen Hargreaves - I'd like to ask him how he got away with it?
George Galloway - just so I can keep an eye on him.
Titus Bramble - so, over the course of the meal, using utensils to represent players, I could explain to him where he should ideally be positioned when the opposition attack.

How would you fix the world right now?
I think we all know that the removal of a certain Texan would be an extremely good start.

The alarm clock. Because never once in my life have I been glad to hear it go off.
