My big brother Ben is a pretty cool guy. He volunteers with animals. He’s totally obsessed with Arnold Schwartzenneger (who he got to compare muscles with IRL yesterday). And – thanks to him – I know a tonne about movies like Star Wars, Die Hard, Terminator, Bad Boys and Back to the Future, which gives me loads of street cred.
Ben’s pretty shy, but to those who know him best he is warm, caring, passionate, funny and stubborn as hell (what are siblings for). I love my brother to bits and he gets me, so I’ll forgive him for the early 2000s boy band mania and the Nollsie and Westlife lyrics now permanently imprinted in my brain. One day.
Oh, and he has Down syndrome. Did I mention that?
