What makes you smile?
Our cat, Willow, trying to eat her own tail, lovable furry psychotic idiot.
Favourite sound in the whole world?
My youngest, Rachel, eating crisps, it's the ultimate combination sound of pleasure and concentration.
Which song gets you on the dance floor?
No song ever written, doesn't happen, won't happen, hasn't happened.
What is your claim to fame?
I once was an extra in Heartbeat with Nick Berry, that was one cold boring day I tell you.
Best concert/show you’ve ever been to?
Coldplay at Stadium of Light was amazing, I still have the light up wristband somewhere.
Favourite movie of all time and why?
Close call between Star Wars and Goodfellas. Standard man answer.
Who is the best celebrity you’ve met and why?
Met Kylie once, thought she was going to be all showbizzy and diva-like, couldn't be more wrong, we all just sat drinking tea with her in the kitchen at work!
What is your favourite thing to do/place to go on Wearside?
My family LOVE the seafront - The International Airshow is by far my local highlight of the year.
Tell me one thing about yourself that nobody knows.
I am actually attempting to write a screenplay, no, really! STOP LAUGHING.
What would it say on your tombstone?
Shamelessly stolen from Spike Milligan 'I told you I was ill!'
TIM IS CURRENTLY TRAINING TO RUN THE SUNDERLAND 10K - FIND OUT MORE AND REGISTER TO RUN HERE.
Happy New Year, cheers for checking out this page and blog.
So 2017 has arrived, and after a very weird, sad, random, won't miss it, 2016, time to move forward.
I have mentioned on air that I have signed up, along with News Tom, to run the Sunderland 10k this May. The great news is that you can sign up as well. If I can manage it, I am sure you can, Tap HERE for more info.
I will be doing a fresh video blog each week, and now have a secret weapon too, thanks to Totum Sport UK, some super blue sachets with essential minerals in it, which appear to be helping me recover a lot quicker. I say recover, I still get home from the gym and moan for 20mins about how my calfs feel like jelly to my wife, but I'm feeling a lot more energised! Best time so far for a 5k is around 34mins....considering I couldn't run 5k a couple of months ago, that's pretty good going!
Anyhow, have a good week, see you on the radio from 3, weekdays, and from 6 on a Sunday (before the gym!)
