Get To Know Russ Morris

Find out what happened when Russ invited his nan to the studios...

Who was your first celebrity crush?
Sarah Greene from 'Going Live'.

Who’s your most recent celebrity crush?
Mila Kunis.

What song gets you on the dance floor?
Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines'. Loved it from the first time I heard it. My dancing is terrible though.
What song reminds you of the most treasured moments in your life?
I'd probably say Dodgy 'Good Enough'. It was out in the summer of '96. I'd just finished school and the summer was fantastic. That song always takes me back there.

What makes you feel good more than anything else?
This is going to make me sound really old but a night in with a glass of wine! Or a out for a meal with friends. It's the simple things in life.

What’s your most proud radio moment in your career?
There's been a few, I've been very lucky to interview some big stars like Victoria Beckham and Robbie Williams but it's probably getting my grandma on my radio show! She was very excited, even though she didn't know what was going on.

And the most embarrassing?
It was back in 2001 during 'Pop Idol'. I was that confident Gareth Gates would win so I made a bet with listeners that if Will Young won I'd stand on a busy road junction with just my pants on wearing a Will Young mask. I was true to my word and even made the local paper! (It must've been a quiet news day).

Has anybody told you you look like a celebrity? Who?
On my recent Heart photo shoot somebody said I looked like Mark Wright's older brother! I didn't ask how much older though......

Favourite food?
Thai curry. I've perfected my recipe now.

Favourite film?
'The Departed'.

Favourite place?
Either a park or the beach.
Who would play you in a film of your life?
I'd like Leonardo DiCaprio to play me, but he'd probably read the script and say, "I'm busy...".

What is your guiltiest pleasure?
Probably spending the day watching 'Friends' repeats! Is that sad?

Tell us about your ideal weekend
Just a lazy weekend eating lots of good food and catching up with friends. But it would have to be a hot and sunny weekend!

What was your first ever tweet?
"I am watching Friends with my friend J". I was really living the high life back in January 2009!!
What was your first ever Facebook status update?
"This isn't as good as MySpace"
