Q. Tell us about your childhood.

A. I'm Belfast born and bred. I grew up on the Lower Ormeau Road until we moved to Ailesbury Crescent when I was 12. It was the best street to grow up on with my parents Jeannie and Teddy, my brother Teddy and sisters Lyndsey and Kim. We always had pets growing up, a cat and a dog, but the cats were always mine. It's a very close family with a huge circle of aunts, uncles and cousins.
