Watch Go the Distance with Kell Brook here

Toughest fighter you’ve faced?

Probably Lovemore N’Dou, believe it or not. Because I hit him with everything, and he just looked at me and kept coming and coming. He was one tough man.

Coronation Street

What do you eat after a fight?

Something sweet, chocolate – I like Toblerone, I’ve got Toblerones in my mind now, you know the big ones you get in the airport?

Who was your boxing icon growing up?

It’d have to be Nas [Naseem Hamed]. His flair, predicting how he’d knock them out, he was so entertaining how he came out.

What’s on your bucket list?

Jumping out of a plane, I’ve always wanted to do that. But I’m very scared of doing it. We went before, they all did it here and I was bricking it. I had all the gear on, ready, all ready to get on the plane, then at the last minute they said it’s too cloudy today, and I was like ‘Yes!’
