I’m a big sports fan and used to be a keen Sunday league footballer, injury has put paid to that but that doesn’t stop me telling the professionals on TV what they should be doing!

I have a young family which takes up a lot of my spare time (wouldn’t have it any other way). We are keen walkers in the family so often end up spending our weekends finding new places to explore. Not having too much spare time can be stressful at times but arriving home after a hard day and seeing a little smiling face seems to make all the stresses disappear.
