Get the gossip on Julian...

Where are you from originally? I was born in Wales, and all my relations now live in Colwyn Bay.

When did you start your first job? I was 16, and worked in Waitrose... it was my job to make sure the yoghurts and the milk were stacked correctly! If I was good, they'd let me go on the tills!

Worst job you've done? Checking staples on magazines in a factory in Melbourne, Australia.

And the best... What I'm doing right now!

What do you like outside of work? Seeing my friends, watching films, listening to music, and going to concerts.

Your favourite TV show? Friends, Gavin & Stacey, and I have a guilty pleasure for nature programmes, and also Question Time (it makes me feel clever!)

Favourite meal? Anything that is cooked for me!

Favourite drink? Anything that is bought for me!

Favourite thing to do at the weekend? Usually just chill out with friends, maybe head out for a meal or a couple of drinks.

What are you like in the morning? Surprisingly ok once I'm up.  But getting up is the difficult part.

How does your best friend describe you? I can't put exactly what my best friend would call me! Instead, I'll say, an all round good bloke, but far too sarcastic sometimes!

How does your Mother describe you? My son off the radio!

Last film you saw? I got through an hour and a half of Avatar and thought 'this goes on a bit' - I'll get round to watching the second half soon.

What would the title of your biography be called? 'Not You Again'

Party animal or bystander? Depends on who's party, and if I'm being well behaved!

Which celebrity would you have play you in a film of your life? Leonardo DiCaprio, he's a brilliant actor, so when it came to the boring bits of my life, he'd be able to make them seem interesting

What is your single worst fear? Spiders - without a shadow of a doubt

Your most embarrasing moment? I threw up half way through a travel report when I was in a light aircraft... I'm not the best traveller.

What's the best piece of advice anyone's ever given you? The cream always rises to the top!

Any nicknames? Jonesy, J, erm those are the clean ones.

The best gig you ever went to? Madonna Drowned World tour in Paris - just incredible. Also, I managed to blag my way into the Golden Circle for the Live 8 gigs, what an amazing day.

The first record you ever bought and where? Five Star - Another Weekend

Your favourite place to go on holiday? Either America or Australia. I have some great friends in both places, so try and see them as much as possible.
