Guest Edit: Greg James' Father's Day Special


Aspinal favourite & Radio 1 DJ, Greg James spoke to us about having his dad as his best mate and the best advice he's ever given him.

WHAT DOES YOU IDEAL FATHER’S DAY LOOK LIKE?

My idea Father's Day is pretty simple: A day at the cricket with my old man with unlimited access to cider. Done!

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE ANY NEW FATHERS?

Your partner has gone through way more than you'll ever imagine. Be around, be selfless and realise you're always going to be second best. But be happy with that. Nothing beats a mum.

WHAT’S THE BEST ADVICE YOUR FATHER EVER GAVE YOU?

Don't let relationships consume you. My dad is the best with advice when it comes to ladies. He always tells me to chill out. And that helps.

WHAT ASPINAL PRODUCT WOULD YOU LOVE TO GIVE THIS FATHER'S DAY?

I'm going to get my dad a wheely Large Cabin Case because he's just had a big operation and can't do heavy lifting.

WHAT’S THE BEST ADVICE YOUR FATHER EVER GAVE YOU?

I'm not a father yet but I went through a really bad break up where I messed up badly. I told him everything about it. Literally everything. And since then, we've become so close. He's my best mate.
