My claim to fame is that I've been shortlisted for 'The Chase' television quiz, and I used to be in the same quiz team as The Beast, Mark Labbett. I've been married for 34 years to the long-suffering Eileen, and have 3 grown-up children. I love quizzing, watching all sports, wine, opera, and reading.
