I turned to C4 at the point that an aging lass was giving this lad what appeared to be a ‘hand shandy’. The whole concept and its ‘industry’ [are] quite bizarre. The postscript said he has not had sex since…is that because he’s been put off? He’s unlikely to pull a decent bird now!”

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
