At the moment I am in the throes of dealing with a backlog of post and emails and would like to apologise for taking an eternity to reply to some of it! I know I say this regularly but the reality is that I don’t see it changing anytime soon.

If you want to see some extraordinary driving and the resulting mayhem, then please tune into CAR CRASH TV on ’5′ on Monday evenings at 7.30pm. I have been providing the voice over for the programme and some of the driving is just utterly unbelievable. Enjoy!

In the main 2015 looks like being another year of attending conventions up and down the country, so I look forward to seeing many of you in the coming months. Confirmed dates of appearances generally are as follows:

February 14th – Telford MCM Comic Con

March 15th – East Midlands Con (EMCON) Nottingham

April 19th- Stoke Con Trent

April 26th – Wales Comic Con Wrexham

May 1st, 2nd, 3rd (one of) – Dimension Jump XVIII – Crown Plaza Nottingham

August 29th- Bournemouth Film and Comic Con (showmaster)

Last year I donned the Brittas blazer for the first time in 17 years to contribute to the Little Mix “Word Up” video in aid of Sport Relief. This is an excellent cause and the video can still be viewed here:

Who knows, 2015 just might be the year when the chainsaw voiced buffoon makes a comeback!

I recently endorsed the ICOSPLAY anti-bullying campaign, again a very worthwhile cause:

It was good to hear that Nor-Con 14 which I attended last September raised £1500 for Scotties Little Soldiers and £500 for Red Wellies Brain Tumour Support Fund

Last year I was invited to participate in the 20th anniversary celebrations of the Mazda MX-5 Owners Club and for more on that please go to

Best wishes
