My best friend is… my partner Charlie. We’re not married, but we’ve known each other since school. She’s the mother of my two children.

The best days of my life were… when my children were born. I have an 18-year-old daughter and a 13-year-old son. When they were born healthy, it was a huge relief and an amazing day.
