Click to follow
What is the most money you have personally won on a bet?

A three-figure sum on John Major succeeding Margaret Thatcher as the leader of the Conservative party.

What is the most bizarre bet you have ever laid?

That Michael and LaToyah Jackson are one and the same person, at odds of 500-1. I'm confident it's true but you need the evidence to prove it.

If you appeared on "Stars in Their Eyes", who would you be?

Lenny Lawrence, the Luton manager. I could certainly do a better job than him.

What would be an ideal day of sport for you?

To see Luton win the FA Cup.

What would you spend your last pounds 5 on?

The best bottle of Sauvignon you could get for the money.

Who are the better gamblers, men or women?

Women. They're luckier and that's very important with gambling.

What was your most memorable pay-out?

pounds 560,000 to a guy called Darren Yates who backed Frankie Dettori the day he had seven winners at Ascot. His wife told him not to place the bet, but he ignored her and put pounds 60 on anyway.

What is your passion?

Psychedelic music of the Sixties.

Would you go into space if it were possible?

No, I have no interest in space. I'm interested in what's down here.

What was the last CD you bought?

The Best of Lou Christie.

What's your hot tip this week?

In terms of value, Bayern Munich are overpriced at 5-4 to win the European Cup.
