Beefy Leon wants to see tougher sentences

What’s your earliest memory?

I was sat up in bed reading about training at 12 last night.

What do you wish they’d taught you at school, but didn’t?

The importance of committing yourself to a singular cause or goal over a long period of time.

If you could do any job in the world, what would it be and why?

Rock star. I would love to drive a car into a swimming pool.

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

Pretty much anywhere in the English countryside! So many people I’ve met have never dared step off a road. I met a guy once who asked me if I’d ever seen a real cow and what colour they are.

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

Tougher sentences on nearly all crimes. The message isn’t getting through to too many that criminal lifestyles are not the way.

You can invite three people - living or dead, from any period - round for dinner. Who are they and why?

Keira Knightley, Pixie Lott and Katy Perry. Well why not?

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

Anything from TGI Fridays.

And if you could write your own epitaph or come up with famous last words in advance, what would you pick?

Hmm, the epitaph ‘Leon was a really nice guy’.

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

Thought control, endless uses and great for making my personal training clients work harder.

How do you relax?

Bed and books.

What’s your greatest fear?

Being in a room where the roof comes down slowly like in Indiana Jones.

What was the last little treat you bought for yourself, or someone else?

Galaxy Ripple. It’s always a Galaxy Ripple.

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

Easy! Exercise.

What’s the most important lesson that life has taught you so far?

You’re not always right.

Websites you use and value the most

My website I’m not a massive web trawler. I love e-commerce of any kind. for trashy news.

What’s your best kept entertainment or social life secret, or guilty pleasure? Tell us about it...

Reality TV! Big Brother, X Factor, The Only Way Is Essex etc. Among my friends, this is not approved.

Which person in the public eye would you most like to meet and why?

George W Bush, he cracks me up.

Always leave them laughing...

What do you get if you put a stereo in a refrigerator?

Cool music.

Cracker jokes: so bad they’re good.
