Getting to know Josh...

What’s your favourite film?
This is a difficult question for me to answer. I love Coen Brothers films, such as Fargo, Burn after Reading & No Country for Old Men. I'm also a massive fan of classics such as Godfather, or a number of Scorsese's.
What’s your favourite book?
I read The Hobbit when I was quite young & it still remains my favourite.
What telly are you addicted to?
My wife is watching Breaking Bad for the first time & it's the best series I've ever seen, so I'm happy to re-watch that. It's been long enough since I saw it the first time for me to enjoy it all over again.
Where would you most like to be right now?
Probably Croatia in a nice quiet beach bar enjoying some seafood.
Where’s the best place you’ve travelled to?
We once spent three weeks travelling around the coastline of Sardinia & absolutely loved it. The food, the landscapes & views, the beaches, the people, the whole experience was amazing.
What would be your specialist subject on Mastermind?
Manchester United. I've supported them since I was six, I rarely miss a game, even though it can be a tough watch these days.
What’s your favourite sport to watch or play?
I like watching football, but I prefer to play.
What’s the best soundtrack to a long car journey?
Chuck a best of the 60's playlist on & I'm good to go.
What’s the best thing about Manchester?
Having recently moved to Manchester I haven't experienced an awful lot, but it definitely isn't the weather.
Tell us about your pet
No pets currently. I grew up with dogs & when they go it's heartbreaking! So it's probably a good thing we're not allowed one where we live right now.
Sunday brunch or Sunday roast?
Sunday roast 100%! Beef, Pork, Lamb, Chicken - it doesn't matter really.
Finish this sentence - ‘I can usually be spotted in the office…
... trying to choose the perfect soundtrack. It can be a painful & time consuming task but you've got to get it right'.
