November’s Skip Hunk is a real Fireworks guy

DON’T mess with November’s Skip Hunk – he’s Taekwondo trained and a smart cookie. Say ‘An Nyung Ha Sae Yo’ to Jed Morton from CB Skips.

Hello, November Hunk. What are your particulars, please?
I’m Jed Morton, I’m 24 and I work as an assistant yard manager for CB Skips in Salisbury. I am also a qualified machine operator with my above and below 10-ton ticket. Also currently going through my WAMITAB Qualification.

You must have a few years under your belt there, then…?
I have worked here since 2016. I started off painting skips and I have now worked my way up to assistant yard manager where I have full control of up to 16 people and the day-to-day running of the yard.

And what’s the best part of the job?
The getting paid is just a bonus in this job! I’m always having banter with everyone in the company and its costumers – not to mention the fact I can pass off the bad jobs to my friends and annoying members of staff.

So, if you won the lottery, you’d stay on, then? Good to hear. What’s been your most memorable day?
The day I was lifted up 20ft in the air in a loadall bucket and then was left stranded.

We hope you got your revenge! Anything you’re not so keen on?
Getting here at 6.30 in the mornings.
Maybe you should have been a summer hunk when the mornings were brighter. Where will we find you outside of work?
Training at Taekwondo where I’m a 3rd-degree black belt and also spending time with my girlfriend and two dogs.

A boyfriend and bodyguard all in one! Where would you whisk your better half away to for a romantic night out?
Going to an Italian restaurant followed up to the cinema.

Italian food worked for Lady and the Tramp… Now how about some superhero powers. What would you like?
Being invisible – you could cause carnage and literally get away with murder.

Maybe it’s for the best you stay visible, young man! What song would you say was your theme tune?
I Don’t Care by Icona Pop. The opening line, ‘I crashed my car into a bridge’ speaks to me because of the amount of damages I have caused around the yard.

Sounds like you’re enough trouble invisible or no! Sum yourself up in three little words.
Fun, energetic, charismatic.

Let’s get you away from the winter gloom – where would you love to jet off to?
The beach in L.A.

Venice Beach or Muscle Beach? Either way, before you set off, let’s throw you a dinner party. Who would you be your ideal dinner guest?
In all honesty – and promise I’m not getting paid to say this but – my partner, Holly.

She’s obviously with you for your charm. Have you ever met anyone famous?
Big Narstie at a festival in Birmingham.

Your lottery numbers have come in! Time to spend, spend, spend. What will you do with your winnings?
Buy a JCB and set up my own business.

An entrepreneur as well? Is there no end to your talents? Finally, make us laugh.
Did you hear about the Italian chef who died? He pasta-way.

And now I need my dinner! Thanks for being a smashing Skip Hunk.
