What is the least rewarding part? Working with my brother Tom.

If you were allowed one dream perk, what would it be? A Homeslice Pizza Black Card.

Do you have any phobias? The Northern line.

What animal most reflects your personality? Dolphin.

What’s your favourite film? Ferris Bueller’s Day Off - we all want our own version of that day.

What has been the most embarrassing moment in your life? Aged eight I walked out onto the field in an XL goalie top, then realised in the team huddle that I’d forgotten my shorts.

Which celebrity would you most like to work with? The South Korean boyband Infinite, or hurdler Infinite Tucker.

What would your death row meal be? To start, calamari with garlic aioli - paired with Infinite Session Pils. Then roast beef with all the trimmings (including mac & cheese) - paired with Infinite Session Pale. For dessert I’d have salted caramel gelato, with dark chocolate torte - paired with Infinite Session IPA. Then a cheese board paired with Bourbon County Stout 2017.
