Everyone loves a bad boy! What's even better is when that bad boy also happens to be a Thai boxer, fitness competitor, model, has a heart of gold and covered with eye catching tattoos. I first became aware of Charlie Garforth when I started seeing his pictures pop up all over Twitter. It's an absolute joy to be kicking off my new Pillow Talk interview series with Charlie. In this interview, we discuss guilty pleasures, pet peeves, relationships, sex and so many other fun topics. Enjoy!
1. What song is your guilty pleasure?
Charlie: The Pixies - Where Is My Mind. Christina Perri, Jar Of Hearts, Freddie Mercury,
2. If you had to appear on a reality show, which would you be on?
Charlie: Come Dine with Me, cos it would need to involve food. Or Gladiators. Actually definitely
3. What TV show would people be shocked to know that you watch?
Charlie: Question Time & This week, anything political.
4. Biggest pet peeve?
Charlie: I’m pretty easy going, but the things which annoy me are mostly food related. Like people who question minuscule amounts of chemicals which have been proven to be safe because of a conspiracy theory. But then smash junk food & booze. I’m all for junk food at times but be consistent. Or any pyramid selling scheme which pimps pills or potions when all people need is education about nutrition and a bit of will power. I’d best reign this in or it will turn into a full blown rant contradicting my easy going start to this answer haha.
5. Has your work as a fitness model landed you a lot of dates?
Charlie: Lots of opportunities, but they are either the wrong type of person or too far away. I think it
creates an unrealistic expectation of me too. I’m not the party boy the tattoos and muscles might represent to some people any more.
