Personal Quote:

There's nothing I like more than talking about myself, so I spent a very pleasant two hours chatting to a lovely lady called Sandra. Towards the end, out of the blue, she said: 'How's your libido Christopher?' Should I be overcome by urges, she suggested, I should retire to the 'dunny' - the lavatory - to attend to them. I can assure you I did not succumb to any such urges. See more »

Trivia:

His favourite film is Gone with the Wind (1939). See more »
