3) He got through to the second round auditions for the X Factor

4) Ice cream is life. Yes. That’s a pirex bowl of ice cream. Unbelievable.

6) Oli’s a big lad at 6ft 5. His nick-name is ‘Baby Mountain’ after this unsavoury chap from Game Of Thrones, ‘The Mountain’ 

7) He made a great ugly sister in Snow White and the 7 Dames. Can you spot which one was Oli?
