Of course I have. That's one of the reasons why I work here.

I do 3 dance classes a week.  I volunteer at the Star and Shadow cinema.

We love books! What is the last book you've read, and why should we read it?

The last book I read was from Adrian Chiles when he was following West Bromwich Albion in 2006. You should read it if you like football or Adrian Chiles.


I like football, meeting people, performing and traveling.


People being silly, cricket, buses being late.
