What made you enter Mr Gay UK this year?:
“Well, I didn’t even know about it, but I work at the club where it was happening and my colleagues told me about it, so I thought I’d give it a go”

How did you feel when you won the heat?
“I was really shocked. All my friends said that my face lit up”

How do you feel about the final?
“I’m really nervous, but I’m quite excited about it too”

What will you do with the money if you win?
I’d probably spend it while I was in Morocco. Or I’d like to go on another holiday, to Acapulco, or Cancun
