Who Am I?

Real Name: Samuel Edward Ogden

Favourite food: Meat Pie, Chips and Gravy

Favourite drink: Real ale

Favourite pub: The Crown, Heaton Lane, Stockport

My ideal dinner party guests: I would include Helen Mirren (beauty), Patrick Moore (brains), Johnny Casson (sense of humour), my youngest grandchild Ellie, and Victoria Beckham (she needs some food inside her – get her on the Hollands’ pies).

Favourite places: Edgeley Park on the day or night of a home win; New Mills; Melbourne VIC, Australia; and New York.

Favourite song: ‘From Me to You’ by The Beatles (1963); it had an immediate impact on me, so I queued up at Woolworths straight away.

Most unusual achievement: back in 1982, I put my name down for ‘The Krypton Factor’ and achieved the slowest time on the assault course in the programme’s history.  I couldn’t stop laughing all the way back from Holcombe Brook, so we celebrated with a few scoops at The Millionaire’s Club in Manchester before catching a 192 into Heaton Chapel.
