    I started working for Sky's competitor 6 weeks ago and its taken until now for him to come welcome me, its about time!!! :friends:

    Only kidding, he was taking part in a charity day thing being run by the company today & visited 4 different offices about the country getting involved in stuff. Had some pics taken with him when he was on a meet & greet, totally top bloke who oozes charm & charisma. Takes 0.001 seconds for you to realise why he's been such a successful businessman!

    I met him on a Virgin flight on my return back to UK from my Honeymoon. He prefers to fly on passenger planes than private jets. He went round the whole jet shaking everyone's hand and filled up the whole of premium economy seats with any 'older' passengers, I got an upgrade for being a newlywed also. :)

    Top bloke like you said.
