What Do You Absolutely Dislike?

People with a negative attitude to life, people who don't care about their looks and body health, people who smell.

Historical Person Who You'd Like To Be?

Alexander the Great, a conqueror and a mighty person, who my parents named me after.

Do You Like Being The Center Of Attention?

I don't know many guys who wouldn't like attention from girls, and I'm definitely not one of them! Sometimes I wish we were able to be on our own and hang out with our girlfriends or whatever. I mean, we do get a pretty normal life, well, it's normal for us, but people who don't understand are like, 'My god, that's what you go through.'

Who's The Wildest BSB?

That's gotta be me. I guess I used to be a bit wilder, a bit like Robbie was in TT. I suppose I still am in a way. I'm always changing the way I look, like dying my hair, growing a goatee, but I like to think it's more about being creative and spontaneous than being a rebel

Do You Remember The First Autograph You Ever Signed?

I don't remember the first autograph, but I do remember my first fan letter. We were rehearsing for our very first proper show in a studio in Orlando when someone from our management came down with this fan letter for me. I took it home and put it down in my messy room somewhere and it got lost, which I'm really annoyed about because if I still had it I'd get it framed.

How Do You Calm Yourself Down When You're Angry?

I used to smoke and that calmed me but I quit cause it wasn't worth ruining my voice. It's my only instrument and my health is very important to me. Now I'd probably lock myself in my room and listen to music and write.

Have You Ever Said Something Hurtful To The Others You've Regretted?

I don't think I've ever said anything horrible, but me and Nick got into a physical fight once. We were at Kev's apartment and Nick kept making fun of me and at the time I couldn't cope it, so I got one of his special comic books and lit a match to it. We got into a fight over it and ended up not speaking. Then about a week later we were in the studio recording I'll Never Break Your Heart and I went into another room to write some lyrics and Nick was also writing in there and we ended up doing a song together. It's the one that we played on the MTV special.

Have You Ever Made Eyes At A Girl In The Audience?

Well, there've been a couple of times when I've seen a real pretty girl I wanted to talk to. So, if she kept looking at me through most of the show I'd get one if the security guys to tell her which hotel we're staying in. Then when she arrived I'd come down to meet her. I wouldn’t let her come up because I'm not into that having girls in your room thing. We'd go somewhere quiet and chat. That's if it's a country where I don't understand what they're saying! Sometimes it can get pretty frustrating when they're chatting in a foreign language.

Have You Ever Snogged To A BSB Record?

When we were in Germany recently, my ex-girlfriend came over to visit and we were talking with the album playing when Get Down came on and we kissed, for no reason. Now whenever it comes up we laugh-it's kinda funny that of all the freakin' slow songs there are, we ended up kissing to that one!
