Ever wondered what Capital FM's breakfast show host is really like? No, nor have we but we asked him anyway...

Is Twiggy really as cantankerous as he makes out? What makes him tick?

Is he a man about town or is he a family man? We've sat him down in a darkened room and turned the interrogation light into his face and shouted "Just answer the damn question!"
