Nickname: I don’t really have one now, although at school it was naturally ‘Fletch’
Star Sign: Cancer
Hobbies: I love getting out and about on my motorbike! I wanted to learn since I came to the Island back in 2008 and finally pulled my finger out and took lessons in 2018 . . . I've never looked back! Lockdown introduced me to gardening, I went nuts and extended my existing patio at home - it's amazing what you can learn to do via YouTube! I'm also really in to weddings, I'm at one most weekends . . . as Host and DJ!
Previous Horrible Jobs: There's been a few . . . I took on a weekly paper round once I was in to double figures and then at the age of 14 stumbled across DJing . . . which has been my one constant! I've worked in cafe's, bars and restaurants, for an AV company which took me to venues and events all over the UK, as a sound and lighting technician in a college, that's the subject I actually studied at college so I did at least put it to use for a bit, and I once did a day's labouring for a builder friend of mine for a day . . . yeah, that was not for me!
Big Break: What. A. Show! Can we have it back . . . I'm sure I read somewhere it was making a come back!
Most Annoying Habit: I do this ‘thing’ with my fingers when I’m bored or nervous, it usually culminates in me cracking my knuckles loudly!
Most Likely To Say: Be Good
Least Likely To Say: I’m full!
Favourite TV Show: A bit late to the party, but I've not long discovered Netflix and Prime . . . there's so many great shows on there that I couldn't possibly choose. I'll narrow it down a little and say anything that features a serial killer, I have a strange obsession with shows about them, I also love Line Of Duty and shows about cars . . . Wheeler Dealers, Top Gear, Grand Tour . . . you get the idea!
Favourite Food: Indian . . . or maybe Chinese, then again, it could be Pizza, or maybe donuts! Why do I have to answer this?!
Embarrassing Moment: It would have to be a wedding I was working at many years ago in Manchester. I invited the Bride and Groom on to the dance floor for their first dance then hit play on their special track, a few seconds in you could tell something wasn’t right, the Bride’s face was like thunder and tears soon appeared. Thinking it was just an emotional moment it wasn’t until the Groom asked me to stop the track, stating he had in fact instructed me to play the wrong one, when all became apparent! The first dance I had been asked to play was Elton John’s ‘Circle Of Life’, the Bride had in fact wanted Elton John’s ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight’, a few moments later following a quick rummage through the CD folder and the correct track was on. Not my mistake but highly embarrassing none the less, thankfully the Bride later saw the amusing side and we can only assume the wedding night went ahead without a hitch!
Most Memorable Moment: Workwise - hosting TT Mayhem on Douglas Promenade a few years back in front of an estimated 7000 people was pretty awesome, as was fronting the 2017, 2018 and 2019 Douglas Christmas light switch on. My stag do took place during TT 2023 and will go down as one of my best nights out ever, the wedding followed a few weeks later and was equally as amazing . . . both things I'll remember forever!
Who's Your Hero: This role is still to be filled, so for now let’s say Adam Richman from Man Vs Food
How Would You Like To Be Remembered: As a really nice, friendly, genuine guy . . . there’s not many of us about I’m told!
Best Chat-up Line: Seriously??? I’ve never used one in my life! I don’t do chatting up, I’m usually oblivious to any female affections thrown my way, as my wife and 3FM colleagues have told me on several occasions!
What Animal Do You Most Resemble: I’ll say a big cuddly bear!
Give 5 Words That Most Describes You: Funny, Smiley, Positive, Genuine, Foodie!
Worst place been caught short: Honestly, I don’t think this has ever happened to me – you’re never that far away from a toilet!
Celebrity you most look like: Matt Fletcher . . . he’s pretty cool right?!
If I was invisible for a day, I would: Skip to the front of the queue’s and ride all the rides at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure in Florida! I once would have said sneak in to Holly Willoughby’s dressing room, but I've gone off her!
I never want to meet: Davina McCall . . there’s something about her drives me nuts!
