Here's a brief excerpt from Chey's 'Getting to Know'!

What's your favourite sport other than football?

"I like a lot of sports to be fair. I watch the NBA when it gets to the nitty gritty of the play offs and boxing is the talk at the moment for a lot of people with what's going on in the heavyweight division."

Who's your favourite boxer of all time?

"When you watch his highlights and any of his fights from over the years I'd go back to Mike Tyson because he was just a beast in the ring."

Your pretty active on Twitter, what sort of stuff regularly comes up on your timeline?

There's a lot of 1990s WWE. That's the era I watched a lot of wrestling when I was growing up.

Who was your favourite wrestler?

"For the punchlines it was definitely The Rock and I really liked Steve Austin as well. DX were definitelty the best faction."

The Rock went into acting after wrestling, what's your favourite film of his?

"The last film I saw with him in was the new Jumanji film. I liked the Scorpion King at the time it came out because he was just starting out in Hollywood and anything he touched then I was a big fan of."

Who is your favourite actor?

"Denzel Washington. Training Day is one of my favourite films. He seems like such a cool guy in his films."
