Roman Abramovich. I think he would make a great friend as well.

How do you off-set your carbon footprint?

Cold shower in the morning after a night out.

Currently Rod Stewart, but I change them once I feel they've influenced me enough. It was Jose Mourinho before the summer.

D.O.B.G.S., CFC and Soho House.

Favourite gadget

Sky+, BlackBerry, iPod, and newly acquired GPS golfcaddy.

Desert island objects

Hamper, beachball and a speedboat.

Most-admired politician

I'd repect any that are brave enough to see that advertising can be a "force for good".

Favourite media

The Independent, Stuff, Totally Jodie Marsh, www.mtv.co.uk/overdrive (where I can watch the latest Totally Jodie Marsh).

Biggest risk taken

I take risks everyday, and they seem to be getting bigger. I'm due for a fall soon.

Perfect day

Do a great deal and beat my budget, then scooter home in the sun to bathe the children and share a bottle of Chateau de Wholly du Honk with Mrs Bampton.

Who should play you in the film of your life?

I'd like to do it myself, if that's OK. I think I could play it well.

Career highlights

Thames TV, UK Gold, Y&R, Channel 5, Viacom Brand Solutions.

Fictional hero

Scooby Doo. My four-year-old agrees.

Best job outside advertising

Greengrocer at Bonds & Son in Eton Wick.

Lowdown

"Bammo" is the genial, persuasive commercial face of Viacom brands such as MTV, Paramount Comedy and Nickelodeon. A passionate advocate for a more creative TV sell, Bampton continues to look snappy around town with accessories including sharp suits and his scooter.

Most expensive purchase

My wife's latest handbag.

Why are you good at what you do?

I like to think I innovate, build considerate partnerships, and with my team make lots of money for my company.
