Sport and fitness have been a big part of my life. I was selected for the Inter-Services Cricket Team and Great Britain Dragon Boat Team, which are some of my sporting achievements. An avid supporter of Aston Villa FC, I have a French Bulldog called ‘Major’ and enjoy weekend city breaks and within the UK.
