Q. Tell us about your childhood?

A. I grew up in Newcastle. My dad Terry is a retired bank manager and mum Anne is a retired nurse. I have an older sister, Karen (45), who lives in Mexico and works in the relocation of refugees, and a younger brother, Mark (30), who is a teacher and lives in London.
