1 What was your first job?
A paper round probably doesn't count, so area fleet manager at Austin Rover.

Bungee jumping at Le Mans. Never again.

How fast Nexus can grow in the UK.
9 What would be your specialist subject on Mastermind?
Leeds United FC - the good years (and, unfortunately, the many bad).
10 What's the worst thing about your job?
How can a 22-mile journey to work take 75 minutes?
11 What one law would you make or change?
Make drink-driving laws very simple, so no alcohol is permitted at all.
12 What did you want to be when you grew up?
An RAF fighter pilot, although it was never going to be possible with my eyesight.

Gabby Logan - lots of football to talk about, and her dad is an ex-Leeds United player.
