I was then even more shocked to find my phone my phone did not stop ringing with more Reporters, TV and Radio stations form all over the world, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, all wanting to interview me, i have since been out in 7 National Magazines, also on BBC, Channel 5 and 4 as well as S4C in Welsh + Sunday Mirror few weeks ago, the Sun has also got a nice big story of me, that they will soon run!
