I’ll always remember the first time I heard that little voice in my ear during live TV. The rush of adrenaline and the buzz of energy that happened then, and still happens to this very day, whether I’m on location or in the studio.

I grew up in the “Fine City”. It’s not just me that calls it that, the road sign as you enter Norwich proclaims it, too. As a child, I spent many summer evenings learning to sail and kayak with a local scout group on the Norfolk Broads.
