If you weren’t in your current position, what would you be doing?

Probably still trying to figure out what to do with my life.

What was your worst mistake?

There are far too many to pick just one but I don’t regret anything. But I try to learn from my mistakes and move on.

What’s your ideal day away from the office?

Good company and a good beer garden!

Name one person you would like to have dinner with and why?

That is a tough one but I reckon Russell Brand must have a few crazy stories that would be worth a listen.

What was your best subject at school?

Spanish – because I fancied the teacher! And Spanish is similar to Greek so was quite easy for me to grasp.

What are your hobbies?

Football, eating out, travelling, gym.

What would you do if you won the Lottery?

I would travel the world, buy a mansion and a Bugatti Veyron. I might also treat all the Benchmark clan to a week’s holiday in the tropics somewhere before I take early retirement!

What’s your favourite item of clothing?

My director Amy bought me a woolly-eared hat for Secret Santa last Christmas!

What’s your favourite time of day?

It has to be evening time.

What’s the best thing about Yorkshire?

Henderson’s Relish, the puddings and the people – all equally great in my opinion.

What would you like your epitaph to be?

Nice guy, great friend and all round hero... or something along those lines!
