Jason on his bedroom: “Like my whole flat, the bedroom’s very simple. It’s got a wooden floor, magnolia walls, long blue velvet curtains which I hung myself. My clothes hang on two black rails, there’s a chest of drawers and a mirror on one wall, and two chests that I keep my junk in.”
Jason on life before Take That: “I used to be a painter and decorator for the council. I had a laugh doing it, but I was glad to get out of it.”
Jason on his twin brother: “I’m 20 minutes older than Justin and although he’s my twin, I think I’m actually closer to my older brother Simon. But I’m close to Justin in that I know what Justin is feeling. It’s weird.”
Jason on his mum: “She’s the best. She’s absolutely beautiful looking, she’s kind, she’s caring, and she always puts us before herself.”
Jason on food: “I love curries, of course. But I generally eat a lot of raw fruit and vegetables, and I try not to mix proteins with carbohydrates. Every now and then, I’ll go against my principles and have a pig out, though!”
Jason on travelling: “Japan is by far my favourite place that we’ve been to. Everything about it, the people treated us so well, the food was delicious, the culture is fascinating. I didn’t want to leave. But travelling really opens your eyes, it puts everything into perspective. You’ve got a narrow-minded view of things when you’ve only seen your own country. You don’t know what’s going on, but when you travel, you see things all the time and you just learn and learn.”
Jason on being famous: “I wouldn’t change it for anything but sometimes it can be annoying when the papers make up things like we’re worth #5 million or whatever, and me mum rings up and says “Is this true, is that true? I’ve just read you did this!”.”
Jason on fans: “I’ve always said that the fans are the most important thing to us. We’ve always judged our success by the fans’ reaction and their support. That’s more of an indication than any award you could win.”
A thing to remember about Jason: He thinks he’s got skinny chicken legs!
