MAN OF THE MONTH


I have become really interested in the business side of Raging Bull and love getting involved whether it is having meetings with the CEO of House of Fraser or visiting the stores and meeting staff and customers.


MARRIED, SINGLE OR SOMETHING ELSE?


Married to Kate with two gorgeous kids Megan and Harrison who thankfully take after Kate


DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN 3 WORDS? Very proud Englishman


WHAT ARE YOUR PASSIONS, WHAT DRIVES YOU?


I am still driven to do the best I can at whatever I undertake. I had no expectations when I entered Celebrity MasterChef of winning the whole thing but one thing I did do was work pretty damm hard at improving my cooking skills! I am pretty passionate about Raging Bull and still get ridiculously excited whenever I see anyone wearing it!


WHAT ARE THE MOST INTERESTING ASPECTS OF YOUR WORK?


I have become really interested in the business side of Raging Bull and love getting involved whether it is having meetings with the CEO of House of Fraser or visiting the stores and meeting staff and customers. It has been so thrilling for me to see big department stores like House of Fraser take on the brand and for it to have done so well with them. Its has been a privilege to be an ambassador to the Prince of Wales Countryside Trust and that is been brilliant for me to get involved with as I am a very passionate advocate of the countryside. Since I retired from rugby I have got involved in so many new areas but interestingly the things I learnt playing rugby really do transfer. Teamwork, commitment, integrity and skills are all relevant in every area of life.


WITH AN IMPRESSIVE RECORD IN YOUR SPORTING CAREER, RUGBY STILL FACTORS IN YOUR LIFE NOT ESPECIALLY THROUGH YOUR CLOTHING RANGE RAGING


BULL. WHAT’S NEXT IN TERMS OF DRIVING THE BRAND RAGING BULL FORWARD?


We are growing rapidly with House of Fraser with a whole load of new branches stocking Raging Bull including I am delighted to say the Northampton one. T e brand is really evolving and I have to say this year’s ranges are the best yet with lots of new lines and the introduction of some more formal elements. Also hot off the press is the news we are just about to launch an exclusive boyswear range with Marks & Spencer which is another step in building the brand and incredibly exciting for me.


WHAT MAKES FOR A GOOD WEEKEND?


It wouldn’t be anything too glitzy that’s for sure. It is always a great weekend just to have some time off with my family and being a country boy being able to get out and about in the glorious Gloucester countryside.


IF YOU COULD BE ANYONE OR ANYTHING PAST OR PRESENT, WHO/WHAT WOULD IT BE?


As a somewhat large and solid prop I have had the odd moment where I wanted to be JPR Williams on the rugby pitch. But then I realized I just didn’t have the hair.


YOUR TOP MOVIES?


Soft spot for Top Gun like a lot of blokes but also a big fan of the new Bond - Skyfall.


YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD ?


Can’t beat a bacon sandwich - made with British bacon of course.


WE KNOW YOU CAN COOK AFTER WINNING CELEBRITY MASTERCHEF 2011, WHAT MEAL WOULD YOU SERVE UP FOR A NIGHT IN WITH FRIENDS/FAMILY. WOULD IT BE ‘CHEFFY’ AND FANCY

OR GOOD OLD FASHIONED WHOLESOME FOOD?


I do cook quite a bit at home and it is mostly very simple with a real favourite being simple sausages and mash but the sausages have to be made from Gloucester Old Spot pork.


DO YOU HAVE ANY FAVOURITE SHOPS OR RESTAURANTS YOU LIKE TO VISIT?


Particular local favourite is T e Glasshouse in Mayfi eld. Love the place.


WHAT ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS IN YOUR


LIFE?


Firstly without a doubt Kate and the two kids. I come from a farming background so I also care passionately about the countryside and my clothing business Raging Bull is hugely important to me as it is very much my brand.


IS THERE A FUNDAMENTAL MESSAGE OR LEGACY YOU WOULD LIKE TO LEAVE PEOPLE WITH?


Have integrity in everything you do and give everything your best shot.
