Has four children by his two wives. A daughter Hattie born in 1990 by his first wife- and two daughters, Alice (2004), Ava (2005) and a son Henry (2009) born to his second wife.
He is a hard-hitting "agony uncle" who voices his opinion truthfully and tells people what they need to hear, not necessarily sympathy.
He uses personal experiences to relate to the people he is trying to help.
Lampooned by Dylan Moran.
