The owner of Racquets Fitness Centre is the latest person to have taken on the questionnaire, in which he admits he would like a super power to understand women.

Other answers include the admission that his favourite football team is Crystal Palace and his greatest fear was this survey.

What’s your earliest memory?

Falling off a go kart and cutting my chin open. I had a white shirt that turned red with blood and went crying home to mum! I’m a bit clumsy!

Ignore what you’re doing now - if you could do any job in the world, what would it be and why?

I would have an extreme fishing boat business in the Caribbean or something fun and exotic without stress.

Of all the places you’ve been in your life, which would you recommend to a stranger?

I would always recommend the Caribbean or I love Devon and Cornwall in the UK.

If you could pass one new law tomorrow, what would it be and why?

One law I would like to abolish is pubs that don’t allow young children. As long as there well behaved it’s no problem. Obviously I respect the landlords opinion, but loosen up a bit!

If you were stuck on Death Row, what would you pick for your final meal?

Final meal would have to be mum’s Sunday roast.

If you could write your own epitaph what would you pick?

A famous song ‘said don’t worry be happy’ I think that sums up my ethic.

If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?

Superpower would have to be - with lots of girls in my family - an understanding girls better superpower. Or maybe a superpower to get my kids to bed on time?

How do you relax?

I relax with my family in the jacuzzi or with a beer in the bar after a game.

What’s your greatest fear?

Greatest fear is this survey, no joking it’s best not to worry too much, but terrorism is a fear of mine.

What was the last little treat you bought for yourself?

Out Christmas shopping I couldn’t resist a massage voucher for me and my wife – thinking we’d use it as a gift but enjoyed it ourselves.

If you had to give up something tomorrow, what would you find it hardest to live without?

I would struggle to give up coffee and biscuits which are my nemesis.

If you could leap forward to the year 2050, what would your hope to find there?

If I could see the future it would be a three-day week with the other two days mandatory sports for all.

Favourite places to eat

Apart from Nicks Excellent Steaks in Racquets Bar I would recommend the House of Spice or the Rising Sun in Thame.

What’s your best kept entertainment or social life secret, or guilty pleasure?

My guilty pleasure is I love watching Cricket, I would sneak down in the night and watch the Ashes series.

What websites do you use the most?

I do follow Crystal Palace (www.cpfc.com) sadly as my family are from Croydon and the fans views are hilarious but of course I also use www.racquets-fitness-centre.com

What do you go out of your way to avoid?

I try to go out of my way to avoid whinny people and buying a round of course (joking about the round).
