Something you didn’t know: pranked a past colleague when I signed him up for Ant & Dec’s “I’m A Celebrity, Get Out Of My Ear”. I told him he needed to meet a VIP client to help organise their children’s party. He was met with Peter and Abbey Clancy at a decoy house where they were messing around and acting strangely because Ant & Dec were asking them to do silly things from an ear piece!
