Just over a month ago I was invited onto The Clare Balding Show along with 100m World record holder Usain Bolt and 400m London Olympics silver medalist, Christine Ohuruogu. Appearing on TV for other things opposed to football is rare, but on the few occasions I have, they’ve all been enjoyable. And appearing on Clare’s show was no exception. Emerging in front of a live studio audience may seem somewhat nervy, but along with Clare’s welcoming nature, her direct questions soon had be reliving all topics from; my time in Strangeways, growing up on Merseyside and the night that led to my arrest.
There’s a real niche in the market for such shows and the guys over at BT Sport are beginning to emerge as a serious rival to Sky Sports. If you didn’t get a chance to see the show, there’s an edited version below.
As ever on my posts, what are your thoughts? Did anything surprise you about the interview?
