Who inspires you?
– My friends firstly, the ones who say to me ‘Why not’, they let me believe my ridiculous ideas are possible. One of my favourite artists is ‘Tigger!’ the daddy of boylesque. Not only is he a phenomenal performer but he is also a kind and giving person who treats those around him with respect.

What’s been your funniest moment?
-I have a “gorelesque” act that involves peeling off fake skin… on performing it for the first time I discovered that there is something better that making an audience laugh… making them recoil in disgust and laughter as the same time – it is the best!

What advice would you give girls wanting to follow in your footsteps?
