I’ve played cricket and supported Chelsea FC all my life, and shamelessly bore people around the office with how much I love both. Chris Gayle and Frank Lampard are my idols.

Once at the cinema, I stuck a popcorn kernel in my ear and had to go to the hospital to get it out. I’ve kept the popcorn kernel in a jar ever since.
