Let me introduce you to Soho Sam, if you met him you’d think he was from London with his swagger, long jackets and rolled up jeans. However, surprising to some, he’s actually from Merthyr Tydfil, a small town in deepest, darkest Wales and only been in London a few years. He’s a lovely fella and by no means vain, for example, when I asked for a pic of him to accompany this Q&A he sent me one with his top off. “It’ll appeal to my male following” he insisted…..Apparently by all accounts he can hold his hands up too, not that he mentions his karate days and fighting in MMA bouts much (ahem). Meet Sam ‘The Destroyer’ Jones….His words not mine.
