Mostly the Matilda musical soundtrack and whatever is on Radio 2 (I’m quite a fan of Elaine Page’s show on Sunday).

5. What was the last book you read and would you recommend it?

My girlfriend, a fresh water supply and a television that works and receives channels.

9. If you could have dinner with 3 people living or dead who would it be and why?

Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen and RuPaul Charles.

10. What is your hidden talent?

I have good short term memory for random facts, if I hear a random useless fact I will remember it.
[Here are a few examples of those amazing facts;]
- Google was first registered September 15th 1997.
- The first film ever made was in 1895 by the Lumiere brothers, it featured a train pulling into a station and the audience were so frightened they ran out of the theatre screaming.
- The first time recorded sound was used in film was in 1926 on a film called ‘Don Juan’ produced by Warner Bros when they developed their sound-on-disc technology.


Thanks Jaison, looks like you'd certainly be the best person to accompany us on supermarket shopping trips, with your memory we wouldn't get home and remember everything we'd forgotten! Looking forward to 'testing' many office cakes too...
