How would you describe yourself in three words? Short and sweet

What’s your best chat up line? I might not go down in history, but I will go down on you…

What’s the most embarrassing song on your iPod? Taylor Swift – Love Story

Turn ons? A girl who’s independent, a little bit edgy, and the right perfume can hook me straight away.

Turn offs? Too much make-up is a definitely turn off; I don’t want to be peeling a mask off my pillow in the morning.

What’s the most romantic thing you’ve ever done for a girl? I took her on a romantic getaway to Gran Canaria, all expenses paid. And I once wrote a song for a girl, but we don’t talk about that…

Favourite Exeter night out? Can’t beat Arena’s Cheesy Tuesdays, but I love a drink at The Old Firehouse too.

Perfect first date? I’ve attempted a lot of “try-hard” dates in the past, so I’d much rather chill out with a movie.

Any party tricks? I can wiggle my ears… amongst other things. Does that count?

If you were a superhero which one would it be? Definitely Spiderman, even if it’s only to snog Emma Stone.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years’ time? As a philosophy student, probably asking people, “But would you like fries with that?”
