What made you enter Mr Gay UK this year?
I was on a night out and actually was on my way home. Everyone was talking about it outside and then someone said they’d let me in for free if I entered so I thought, “why not?”

How did you feel when you won the heat?
I was mad! Absolutely crazy. One minute I was outside about to go home and the next, everyone was cheering and I won. It was one of the best feelings, I was completely mind blown

How do you feel about the final?
Really nervous, I’ve never done anything on this scale. I’ve never done a photo-shoot or anything either. I just don’t really know what to expect

What will you do with the money if you win?
Buy a car, a Vauxhall Astra. I’ve been a bit lazy about getting driving lessons but I’ll definitely will if I win.
