Fantasy business partner

My seven best friends from university. We meet up every year and we end up always talking about how we can start a new exciting company that will make us millions. Twenty-six years later and it's still a fantasy.

How do you off-set your carbon footprint?

Every Sunday night when I put out the recycling.

Greatest influence

My family? young and old.

Clubs

Chelsea football club, Virgin Active, Home House.

Favourite gadget

Heart monitor, to reassure me that I do burn off some calories when I go to the gym.

Desert island objects

Snow Patrol's Eyes Open, my photo albums, guitar.

Most-admired politician

I don't, sadly.

The Sunday Times, The X Factor, Radio Five Live, chelseafc.com.

Biggest risk taken

Staying in contact with my seven best friends from university.

Perfect day

At home with no plans at all for the day.

Kiefer Sutherland, apparently.

Getting to the final of MediaWeek's "Media Mind" in 1989, and becoming a managing director of MG OMD in May 2005.

Best job outside advertising

My first (and only) time working in a pub on New Year's Eve.

Lowdown

The likeable and amusing Ffitch had a successful year at the helm of the Omnicom agency. Outside of work, he exhibits masochistic tendencies by attempting to learn the guitar.

Most expensive purchase

Plasma TV screen.

Why are you good at what you do?

Because I care quite a lot, sometimes too much.
