  • And, you know, South Woodford has always been a place in my heart because that's where my wife, Marianna, and my daughter, Gabby, were living when I met them.

  • Gabby was about seven years old at the time, and I used to take the central line from Liverpool Street because I lived in Hackney in Old ST, and I would go out to South Woodford and I would walk and pick up Gabby.

  • And that was our date.

  • It was like me and Gabby.

  • And we would go in there and it was pretty new at the time.

  • And Gabby and I would go to the food court.

  • I teach you how to play chess.

  • She was working, um, in retail on new Bond Street, and she'd come home, and sometimes Gabby and me would bring her, like, a dress or something.

  • So I have really fond memories of these boroughs out here, Uh, great things happening.

  • And, you know, after that, of course, we all became one family.
