Working from home or just at home?
I was doing college work at the beginning of lockdown, but since that came to an end in early May I’ve just been at home.

Strangest thing you do to pass the time?
Nothing too strange really. Although I do spend a bit of time playing basketball out the back of the house which may be considered strange when you factor in that I’m only 5’ 6.
The NBA is not really on the cards, I’m afraid.

What’s the best thing about going nowhere?
Having an excuse to lie in until whenever suits.

Best thing about social distancing?
Not having to make decisions on whether to go somewhere/do something or not. Great for those of us who struggled with indecision.

Queuing up to get into the shops.

Favourite song to wash your hands to?
I believe it’s supposed to be the happy birthday song so I’ll just go with that.

One Tree Hill or Gogglebox.

Which three celebrity guests would you invite to your Zoom party?
Sacha Baron Cohen, Louis Theroux and Danny Dyer.

Ping Pong Table.

Enjoy a pint with the lads.

Sum up Coronavirus in three words?
Not very fun.
