Entertainment press officer, Five
In the role since
To generate publicity in all forms of media for Five's factual entertainment, entertainment and comedy output. Working closely with the channel's controllers, talent and lots of lovely journalists.
Best thing about your job
Getting to be 'hunk of the month' on Digital Spy....it's been a dream of mine. Being involved at the early stages of programme development and Five is a great place to work.
Worst thing about your job
Nothing, it's amazing, especially working with a great team.
First thing you do in the morning when you get in?
Log onto DS and check the mood of the nation, also have a quick look at all the papers and various media websites, and have a look at the overnights to see how our channels have done the previous evening.
Any downsides to working in the media?
You do tend to do some strange hours. And liver failure.
First media job
Channel 4, post room...1932.
Biggest achievement to date
Having the Rebecca Loos splash (pardon the pun!) on the cover of The Sun for pleasuring a pig in the first series of The Farm. Plus being in the audience of Swap Shop when I was about 7.
Anything you wish you'd done differently?
Not really, always good to learn from your mistakes. Working your way up though the system gives you a good overview of how the industry works.
Ticket inspector, London Underground, means I get to meet loads of new people and free travel on the tube.
Best media jolly/event you've ever attended
Comedy Awards are always fun. It was good this year as we had our first nomination for 6 years with Suburban Shootout. We didn't win but at least we were in amongst it. The Montreux TV festival hold some great memories.
What are you most looking forward to watching this Christmas on 1) Five 2) the other channels?
1) We've got a couple of great docs coming up over Christmas, Careless Whiskers: The Unseen George Michael, looks at previously unseen home video footage and interviews some 'former' close friends, who have been squeezed out of his inner circle. David Icke: Was He Right speaks to the man once famed for his turquoise shell suits. He talks about his premonitions of global disaster and how the world is still being run by a reptilian higher order.
2) I'm a bit of an 'Enders fan so I'm looking forward to my bit of death/babies/earthquakes/alien invasion Christmas day offering.....I've heard that Roly is coming back too!!
If you were Richard Branson, what would you ask Santa for?
A new balloon.
David Icke: Was He Right is on Five at 11pm on December 26, and Careless Whiskers: The Unseen George Michael is on December 30 at 10.15pm.
Weekend Spy: Job Spec will be back after Christmas.
