Gone Fishing series means a whole new audience might indeed be surprised at how many different things he’s done and will particularly admire the non-showbiz route to stardom.’  ― Yorkshire Bylines

‘…it’s everything you would want from the man who is the highlight of every show you see him on’ ―
The Independent
