Harvey Lee

But what’s the man behind the mic really like? We caught up with him to find out!
 
So Harvey, tell us five quirky facts about you…

 
1.  I can bend the very tips of my fingers.

2.  I get annoyed at seeing milk and a tea bag in a mug at the same time (so wrong)

3.  I wanted to give my first child the middle name “Electro Boy” just for a laugh (He was born a she, so it seemed wrong...)

4.  I gave my unicycle away to a listener because his was stolen.

5.  I collect watches.

The A-Z of Harvey Lee

ADORE… What can't you live without?

In order: my children, my mobile phone, the cinema, my PS3

BODY…What physical attribute would you most like to change?

I’d like to be 1 inch taller and 3 inches slimmer

CHILL OUT… What do you do to get away from it all?

Mini break!  Always like to get away and discover somewhere new.

DREAM … Your last dream?

A bird flew into my front room and I had to catch it, I did, then I woke up clutching my duvet.

ESSEX… Where in the county is your favourite spot?

St Peter-on-the-Wall at Bradwell-on-Sea.  Beautiful little place, so peaceful.

Emma Bunton, she’s normally on after me.

GEEK… Favourite bit of tech?

Portable battery charger for my phone, it’s always running out!

Ibiza. You can have any sort of holiday you want there.

IRRITATE… What’s your most annoying habit?

Ask my mum, I probably have a few.

JOKER…Which presenter is the practical joker of the team?

Matt Mackay.  He’s always doing stupid things for me to find in the studio.

Shawshank Redemption, The Great Escape, Overboard (bit random)... I have too many to mention!

NEVER... What would you absolutely refuse to do?

Any of the eating tasks on I’m A Celebrity, I just couldn’t.

Spend time with children and family and I love a good pub for a chat and pint with friends.

QUITE ANNOYING… What habits irritate you in other people?

People not saying thanks when you hold a door open for them. So rude!

VOCAL…. Who is your favourite artist?

Dare I admit it?  I’m a Belieber.

WHERE… in Essex is your favourite place to visit?

Burnham-on-Crouch in the summer, walking along the sea wall with a bag of chips or ice cream. Always a winner.

No broken bones (at the time of writing...)  I did have my appendix out on my daughter's fourth birthday though.

YOUNGER DAYS… What’s your earliest childhood memory?

Sliding down the stairs with my brother on the mattress from a fold up bed.  It was brilliant!
