5ive's spikiest fella cowered in fear before the Smash Hits Biscuit Tin. Did he get off Scott-free? read on...
1. Have you ever felt like you were going completely mad?
Yeah, I feel like I'm on a different planet most of the time. People get upset 'cos they think I haven't got time for them any more, but I can't please everyone. I sometmes feel like locking myself in a box and never coming out, just waving my hand out every now and then!
2. How would you rate you snogging technique out of ten?
Quite high! I'm not saying I'm a good kisser, but the technique's there. Do you want to know what it is? OK, you start pecking them on the lips, then you move slowly into the snog, then pull back and kiss their neck. I like that.
3. Do you believe in angels?
That's a very pop star question! I suppose I do, in my own little way, someone gave me this job 'cos they knew I'd go insane if I led an everyday life. Someones done it for me - I'm going into whether it was God or an angel... or me mum.
4. Do you tidy up when you have visitors around?
I used to, but I'm not too bothered now. My friends know how busy I am, so I think they understand. I do have a quick tidy. I go through stages of being really tidy and being really messy.
5. Have you ever dreamt about someone famous?
Hahaha, not that you could print! Who's my dream girl? I used to say Alicia Silverstone, but I'm changing. I still like cute girls, but I always used to go for blonde hair and blue eyes, whereas now I'm more into brown hair and greeny, brown eyes
6. What would you most like to change about the world?
False people, people with attitudes and jealous people. Not jealous as in a relationship but jealous of what I'm doing... narrow-minded people. They see me and think, 'Yeah, he loves himself.' But they don't even know me
7. Do you have to be good-looking to be a pop star?
I don't think you have to, but it helps. To qoute Abs, if people like us for our music that's fair enough, but if they also like us for our looks that's a bonus. I don't think girls would look at me if I was just a normal bloke on the street.
8. What makes a person sexy?
Personality. Honestly! I'm not saying that's the only thing that matters - I like a girl to be pretty - but at the end of the day you could have the prettiest girl in the world and she could be a right bitch. A sexy girl is one who's pretty, has a sweet personality and doesn't like to argue.
9. What would you call your life story?
What would I be called? (no, what would your LIFE STORY be called?) Erm, I haven't got a clue... erm, Hard Knocks From Essex?! No, no! (struggling) You make something up! (We can't do that) OK, put 'He laughed and said Hard Knocks From Essex in a laughing way...'
10. Why do spiders have eight legs?
So you can hurt them eight times. I'm not scared of spiders, but some of the small ones look really evil - they've got facial expressions! Urgh!
11. Why do people cry when they're upset?
Because it helps. I'm not ashmed to admit I cry when something's upsetting me... or when I watch Titanic! It annoys me when people think they're too hard to cry
12. Do you take styling tips from Sonic the hedgehog?
Very funny! No, he take's tips from me 'cos my hair is better
13. Are you terrified of going down the dumper?
I don't really think about it, 'cos I take things day by day. If I heard things were gonna go down the dumper tomorrow, I'd be a bit worried, but I know what I'm doing tomorrow so I'm just thinking about that
14. If you were an alien, what would you look like?
I'd probably have blue, red and yellow hair and I'd be like a bit of a pizza. I'd be made up of all the different food I like - I'd be made up of pizza, cheese and beans
15. What are you like when you're drunk?
It depends what mood I'm in. Me and Rich have had funny drunken nights where we've said we love each other and stuff. If we've had an argument, we say (adopts emotional drunk voice), 'Let's never argue again... You're great, man...'
16. Do you have a special pair of pulling pants?
Yeah, my Calvin Klein boxer shorts. If medium and Calvin Klein, they'll do - grey, white or black.
17. Who was the last person you had a row with?
On Friday night, I went out with my dad, sister Nicola and her boyfriend Martin. I was in the pub and when I went to the toilet some guy said, 'Slam dunk the funk' in a nasty manner. So I turned round, called him a few names and said, 'Why d'ya bother?' He was like, 'C'mon then!' But I just said, 'Forget it, I'm not gonna loose my career over you.'
18. Have you lied during this interview?
No, I haven't! It's not worth lying, 'cos eventually you'll get asked the same questions and you get caught out. People say, 'You always give the same answers,' but that's 'cos we're telling the truth. We're asked the same questions over and over again, so we're gonna give the same answers every time. We're not gonna change them just 'cos it'd make better press.
19. What's your favourite day of the week?
I would have said Friday, but now we never know if we're gonna have Saturdays off. So I'd have to say any day of the week when I get time to chill out and be with my family and friends
20. Can you spell anaesthetic?
Can I *&@%! I'm not even going to try!
