A-Z’s of Paul Harper 

ADORE… What can't you live without? 
Depends if you want a real answer? Family obviously! Or WhatsApp

BODY…What physical attribute would you most like to change?
My 12 pack

CHILL OUT…What do you do to get away from it all? 
Taking our Puggle Fudge for a walk usually works

DREAM … Your last dream?  
I lost all our passports on holiday and then turned round and my family had been taken. It was all very Liam Neeson 

EXCEL... something you are great at? 
I used to be good at FIFA on the PlayStation but since becoming a daddy, it’s been on about three times 

FAMOUS… The celeb you've met? 
I was DJ before Robbie last time he was here at Hampden. His last words to me were “don't screw it up Paul”

GREETIN… What always makes you cry?
I’m a sap for those videos of dogs being reunited with their owners

HOLIDAY… What’s your favourite destination?
Orlando for the theme parks. The best place on Earth, apart from Scotland obviously!

IRRITATE… What’s your most annoying habit? 

I bit my nails. It’s not a nervous thing though, just a bad habit

JEALOUSY… Which celebrity would you swap lives with?
I think being in a boyband would be pretty amazing. I was going to say Gary Barlow but I want to be younger, so Harry Styles please 

KNOCK KNOCK… Your favourite joke? 
How do you make an Aberdonian omelet? Well, first of all you borrow six eggs

LOVE LIFE… Are you attached or looking?
Married thank you. My beautiful wife Claire and I got married in September 2015 in sunny Dunblane (it was raining that day!)

MOVIES… Favourite film? 
Anything Bond. James Bond. I watched Live & Let Die the other day and I’d forgotten how naff some of the props were. Brilliant! 

NEVER…What would you absolutely refuse to do? 
Jump out of a plane. Not for a million quid!!

OFF WORK…What do you do in your spare time?
Stuff that I’ve been nagged to all week. Cut the grass is usually the last on the list to get done. More fun is the swing park down the road with our little girl

PROUD MOMENTS …What are you most proud of?
I know this is predictable, but holding Chloe for the first time 

QUITE ANNOYING… What habits irritate you in other people?  
Mrs H cracks her knuckles and I cant stand it!  

REWIND… Where did you spend your childhood? 
On the football pitches by our house, but I wasn’t very good. From 13 I was never away from the hospital radio studios. This was always my dream job

SCOTLAND… Where is your number one place to visit?
Burn O’Vat in Aberdeenshire is stunning. It’s a cave with a waterfall inside and rumoured hiding place of the infamous “Scottish Robin Hood”, Rob Roy MacGregor.

I love the Blacklist so much, its back on later in the year. I was also mad for Breaking Bad, Dexter and The Thick of It
