July’s Skip Hunk: Suave David adds some Spanish spice

HE’S a multi-lingual, kebab-munching Skip Hunk who loves a yacht party. Pucker up and say ‘hola’ to David Oliver.

Looking good David. Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m 27-years-old and I work at Clearpoint Recycling Ltd as Logistics Coordinator. I’ve worked there for six months.

And how does your day pan out?
My day-to-day consists of providing the best customer service and arranging collections and deliveries with my hauliers.

Ever had any weird stuff happen at work?
Finding out that my manager nominated me for Skip Hunk; I didn’t know it was a thing until now!

WHAT?! Skip Hunk is a national institution! We can only assume you’ve been busy doing other things… like what precisely?
Well, I LOVE my food, especially kebabs. So, keeping fit is essential – you’ll usually find me running, in the gym, going on a nice hike in the country… failing that, watching Peep Show with a kebab.

You had us at ‘kebabs’. Ever done anything a bit bonkers?
I tried scuba diving once; it wasn’t for me. It’s safe to say I am no Aquaman.

Maybe not, but if you were a superhero, what superpower would you like to have?
Well since my scuba diving was a failure, I’d like to be able to breathe underwater and explore the ocean! Also, time travel would be cool. I’d like to go back and see the dinosaurs.

You could combine both and travel back in time as a scuba diver, but look out for the plesiosaurs! Now, tell us something fascinating about yourself.
I can speak three languages fluently, Catalan (my mother tongue), Spanish and English. I also understand a bit of Italian and French.

Pack your bags, it’s holiday season – where in the world would you love to go?
I’d love to go to Iceland; it is on my bucket list. I’d say my favourite place is Almeria in Spain; the place is amazing. I’d recommend going.

Googling ‘Almeria’ right now. But first, food! What’s your speciality dish?
Tortilla de patatas – reminds me of home and it is SO good!

We’ll be right around – maybe to your palace since we’ve made you king. What law are you going to introduce?
Kebabs to be eaten, by law, on a Friday, without fail.

Happy to obey, King David. A lad like you must mingle with A list celebrities regularly – any you can tell us about?
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jamie Lannister from Game of Thrones) – great guy! He was in my home village on holiday. We asked for some spoilers but he just walked away.

Tsk. Never mind, we’ve given you the winning Lottery numbers and you’re rich! What’s on the shopping list?
I’d buy everyone in the office a yacht and we’d have crazy yacht parties!

Your workmates are going to love you! Finally, cheer us up with a cracking joke.
Want to hear a joke about a piece of paper? Never mind… it’s tearable.

Oh… and it was all going so well. Never mind David, you’re still a fabulous Skip Hunk. Off you go and celebrate with a kebab!
