Banana Chat - meet Dan Austin

by Banana Crumble | Jul 04, 2018

Hello, my name is Dan Austin and I am a 25 year old from Newark in Nottinghamshire. I studied at Southend High School for Boys before gaining my Masters Degree at Aberystwyth University. I am a keen sports fan and love spending time in the outdoors.

What makes you smile?
The reaction of my cats (Lord and Lady Tiddlesworth), when my wife comes home from work.

What is your favourite good news story?
England beating Columbia! Football’s coming home.

What inspires you?
Red Wine – a lot of great decisions come after drinking red wine!

If you could change one thing in the world what would it be?
The taste of Brussels Sprouts when boiled.

If you could have one superpower what would you choose and why?
Napping – I love a good nap.

What is your favourite food?

What is your favourite drink? 
Whisky in the winter and beer in the summer! But it has to be a proper beer! None of this rubbish Fosters stuff!

Salad Cream.

All housing is free.

What is your favourite phrase or saying?
Fanta Naranja sin hielo por favor…

The spreading of Good News that Banana Crumble does and the money it helps to raise for charity. You would just be mad not to sign up!

Busted – I’ve seen them live, they do not disappoint!

Gandalf – nothing else to be said. What a man and what a beard.
