What do you like doing on your day off?
Spending time with family and friends, nothing too fancy.

If you were to . choose your favourite meal what would it be, where and why?
Anything Italian, anywhere in Italy.

What has been your proudest moment?
Probably getting into university, especially as I had to move away and do everything for myself. Getting through first year, without Sky Sports for the first few months is a big thing to me.

What was the most frightening moment of your life?
I nearly drowned in Florida as a child, but in hindsight I just find it funny.

How would you describe your taste in clothes?
I have an extensive collection of band t-shirts.

What would you do if you won a million pounds?
Go travelling, buy a season ticket at Old Trafford and buy my parents a nice house.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
I have far too many.

What music do you like?
More or less anything that isn't heavy metal, classical or jazz.

What sports person do you most admire?
David Beckham - I'm a big fan of his tattoos and he played for United.

Describe your best ever holiday. What would your dream holiday be?
Two years ago I went to Thailand with my best friend, Kerri. I visited a temple in Bangkok during a religious holiday, which was incredible. I'm dying to visit Jamaica, and travelling round Italy is on my bucket list.

What is your greatest remaining ambition?
To make it as a journalist. I would love to move to America for work or join the Sky Sports News team. Aside from that, getting married and having babies.

If you could spend a day with a celebrity whom would you choose?
I would love to spend a day with Jay-Z, he's had an interesting life thus far so he'd have some good stories to share. Hopefully he'll write a song about this day we'll spend together.

If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you want with you?
My iPod, a book to read, and someone interesting to talk to.
