Do you prefer healthy food or junk food? I run a debits and credits system with extremes of both.

Have you ever sent back or complained about a meal?

I am terribly "English" and tend not to complain even when it's terrible. However, last night in a pub I had to send back a steak because it smelt.

What's your favourite tipple? Champagne and Pepsi Max. My debits and credits system applies to drinking, too.

What would you rescue from your house if it was on fire? My cats and Sky remote.

What's your fantasy car? I've just treated myself to the Mercedes SLK I always wanted. The fantasy is driving it with the roof down.

What are you reading at the moment? Fighters magazine as I have taken up kick boxing.

What was the last film you went to see at the cinema? King Kong - probably the worst film I've ever seen.

What's the most embarrassing moment of your professional life? Going behind a bush to inspect in private the bruise on my backside after paintballing on a company conference, only to find I had inadvertently shown the next group (MD included) who were coming up the hill behind me.

If you weren't talking to us, what would you be doing? Playing or watching sport. I love running, going to the gym and anything competitive. I find adrenalin relaxing.

What's your motto for life? Never be satisfied.
