About Guy: I am co-presenter of the Friday Night Big Show with colleagues Neil and Sheps. I was raised in Paignton on a diet of May’s Pasties and Mynah Cola.

I am a senior journalist with the Herald Express, keen runner, ace cyclist, husband, parent and Jack Russell owner. My ukulele playing career was cut tragically short because every time I picked it up to tune it, the dog barked the house down and I had to put it away again.

About Neil: I was born in Caerphilly South Wales; days before England luckily won the world cup!! I thought one day that'll be Wales. I'm still waiting! I moved to Torbay at the age of 12 and love it here.

I’m a big 70's TV fan - Starsky and Hutch, Sweeney plus all the great comedies. I enjoy the odd Ale or two, socialising and having a jolly good time in fact, the sillier the better!

Neil’s Passions: Music and Sport

Neil’s Hobbies: Running, all sports, skiing, listening to live music and playing ‘Championship Manager’.

Neil’s Favourite Food: Chocolate 

Neil’s Favourite Music/Artist: I love all types of music except Adele!
