What made you enter Mr Gay UK this year?:
It was a challenge, I heard about it a couple of weeks before and I thought it was a good challenge to get myself into shape

How did you feel when you won the heat?
It might sound a bit cheesy, but I was a bit overwhelmed. It was done by cheering and having all those people cheering for me was really overwhelming, I was really happy.

How do you feel about the final?
I’m a bit nervous, I’d love to get into the final three

What will you do with the money if you win?
It’s really boring but my car’s in negative equity, so I’d really like to pay it off – it’s a nice car though, BMW
