 Steve Denyer

Which celebrity would you have play you in a film of your life?
Well I have the height of Tom Cruise, but personally I think Verne Troyer has more flair!

What is your single worst fear?
Spiders, Cockroaches and Rats. Umm... that's three - sorry I hate all of them!

If you were completely fearless what would you do?
I suppose go in the Jungle and get put through my paces with the above three lovelies!

Do you have any phobias?
Not great with heights. I've been lucky enough to visit the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and climb the Syndey Harbour Bridge. Both amazing experiences were ruined by me saying 'Get me off I'm gonna pass out!'

What was the worst job you've ever had?
It has to be when I was a junior newspaper reporter. I used to have to go knocking on old ladies homes and listen to stories about their leaking ceilings and blocked drains. You have to start somewhere though, don't you?!

Your most embarrasing moment?
Introducing Tom Hanks as 'Tom Cruise' at one of his movie premieres! I will never forget the look he gave me. It put me firmly in my place!

What's the best piece of advice anyone's ever given you?
KISS - keep it simple, stupid.

Your favourite insult?
As Derek would say, "HOW VERY DARE YOU?"

Any nicknames?
The Denyer, Denyer, Stevie D, Dirty Den, the list goes on and on!

The best gig you ever went to?
Madonna Blonde Ambition tour July 20 1990 - two days before my 14th birthday. My first visit to Wembley and it blew me away!

If you could have one super power what would it be?
I wish I was immune from Calories. Imagine a world where you can eat and drink what ever you like and never put on a pound - wake up Steve!!!!!!

Your favourite quote?
In life you meet Drains and Radiators. Ditch the drains make friends with the Radiators.

The first record you ever bought and where?
Kylie's first album Kylie - 5.99 from Our Price. Still got it in the loft!

Your favourite place to go on holiday?
Bangkok, Thailand.

What are your hobbies?
