Q: Worst Dancer?

Q: Worst Dress Sense?
A: Worst dress sense goes to all the culchie boxers. Collars flicked up, t-shirts tucked into the jeans and the hair spiked up. Willie McLaughlin, Jason Quigley, and Conrad Cummings. I hope the lads don’t take a swing for me next time I see them because I named some big bangers there!

Q: Biggest Messer?
A: I hate to have to say his name again, but it’s Tyrone McCullagh. The only reason I put a code on my phone is because of him. I try not to say or do anything bad to him because the retaliation is too severe! Last time I pranked him I never slept for 3 nights worrying about what he was gonna do. I ended up giving him a few quid so he wouldn’t ruin my life.
