What made you enter Mr Gay UK this year?
I’ve never had the confidence – last year there was a Mr. Gay Derry competition but I didn’t feel I could go for it. But this year I thought why not…

How did you feel when you won the heat?
I was in shock, I hoped I would win but I didn’t know if I would. It’s really helped my confidence

How do you feel about the final?
I don’t know really, hopefully it should be ok

What will you do with the money if you win?
I’ll probably put it towards my career, help me to pay towards college fees
