I’ve been snowboarding down the Remarkables in New Zealand and Deejayed in front of 5k people with Mark & Lard before the Sugababes.

What was your first job?

I worked in a DIY shop and there was nothing I didn’t know about varnish!

Tell us something that not many people would know about you

In 1983 I was on Saturday morning TV stroking a rabbit & when I was 18 I went to live as an Au Pair in Boston Massachusetts.

I would be on a small farm by the sea in Wales looking after Swiss Valais Blacknose sheep, Mangalitsa pigs and miniature donkeys.
