Personal statement: I am married and live with my wife, 3 daughters and a large white dog called Alfie. I am just emerging from the fog that is teenage children and during the summer months, when I’m not dreaming of mountains, I tend my vegetable patch …

Tom Billings

I live in London with my long-term girlfriend. Originally from the Midlands, I’m a long- suffering follower of West Bromwich Albion. I’m also an avid gym goer with an interest in watching, but unfortunately no longer playing, all sports.

Matt Jackson

I am married with 2 young children. I love Rugby Union but unfortunately the body is no longer as willing as the brain so I try to keep fit by going to the gym and running but food and drink are too much of a passion!
