B: Banter - Who has the best banter in the squad?
The person who makes me laugh the most in this squad is Lenny (Ryan Leonard).

C: Club - What team do you support?
Newcastle. My Dad and some of my family are from there so I was sort of forced in to it a little bit.

D: Dining - What would be your last three course meal?
Sweet chilli prawns to start, my Mum’s homemade lasagne for my main course, and then probably a decent cheesecake for dessert.

It depends who the night in is with, but probably a night out to be honest.
