Bye-bye the decade with no name. What are you relieved to draw a line under?

Spray-on jeans for men.

What’s your biggest hope for the decade ahead?

We rediscover some common ground. Jah Love.

And what’s top of your professional to-do list for the 2020s?

A bit less transmit, a bit more receive.

You have to job swap with someone in our industry for one month. Who would it be with and why?

John Hegarty. I'd like to have a garage in Soho.

Who is your best friend in the industry and why?

If you force my hand, I'm going to say Ben Hayes. Possessor of the best "bass face" since Bootsy Collins. He hasn't chosen me, has he?

What do you think the Friday feeling is?

Emailing on Prosecco.

Who or what would you put into room 101 and why?

Fake cockneys. You know who you are. Innit.

If you could uninvent one piece of technology, what would you choose and why?

Email. I mean c'mon.

In the spirit of embracing failure… What has been your biggest screw-up?

Locking myself out of my hotel room in Windsor at 4am. With no clothes on.

What do you do to stay match fit?

Watching Top Boy on a Stairmaster.

What would be your darts walk-on music and why?

Here I Go Again – Whitesnake. Because I know what it means, to walk along the lonely street of dreams.
