You’ve maintained a good relationship with your exes – what’s your secret?

Yes, it’s true, everything’s hunky dory, but there’s no secret to it. To be honest, it hasn’t always been plain sailing, and there’s always that initial moment of animosity when things go wrong. You have to wait for that moment to pass, and move on.

My loves 

Football. I am passionate about it. My love for the game and my football club has got me through some hard times in my life. I still play regularly, too.

Cars. Fast cars like Porches and Ferraris – they are things of beauty.

My kids. I know it’s obvious, but they really are my pride and joy, and I love spending as much as time as I can with my brood. I learn so much from them.

My hates

Smoking. It’s just stupid. Smoking anything at all – plain silly.

A bad cup of tea. Brewing a good cuppa is something not everyone can do, and I loathe bad tea.

Being called short. For some reason, I keep reading that I’m short. I’m actually 1,8m – it’s simply that Penny is taller than me!
