Hull City midfielder Jimmy Bullard on set of Wash & Go advert - 0

So, this advert you are doing with Wash n Go - how has it gone down with the lads in the changing room?

When I first told the lads they could not believe it, literally. Wash n Go told me what they had in mind to celebrate their 21st anniversary, and it was all pretty nerve-wracking to be honest as I've never done anything like that before. I enjoyed it once it was underway and I liked being in front of the camera. Having watched it back, it looks brilliant!

If you could star in the advert with any other person, who would they be?

It would have to be Gazza! He would be a liability in there and cause some havoc, but it would be a real laugh.

Which present or former team-mate is vainest, or takes longest in the shower, after games?

Well it wouldn't be Danny Murphy! To be honest, I have not come across any vain footballers. I've heard a lot about Jonathan Greening, but people keep it quiet otherwise I would give them all manner of stick.

Danny Murphy is a blogger for us. Any stories you can tell us to stitch him up?

I'm gutted to say, but I have nothing on the Murph. I would love to stitch him up, but he keeps his cards very close to his chest. He's a slippery one old Murph.

You're a keen fisherman - what is your biggest catch?

I love a bit of angling! My biggest catch is an 18-pound carp. John Collins used to get on board with the angling when we were at Fulham together.

If you could have dinner with any three people, who would they be?

Tiger Woods - topical. Ray Winstone, who is my favourite actor, and I cannot split Paul Gascoigne and Robbie Williams.

If you were not a footballer, what would you be doing?

Well apart from the hair modelling, I would love to be a full-time golfer. To travel the world playing on tour would be immense.

If your house was burning down, what one possession would you save?

The one possession would be my little boy Arch. But, hang on, I can't leave the Missus in there, can I?! I'm struggling with that one.

What is on your iPod at the moment?

I go through stages with my iPod. I'm into a bit of swing at the moment - it's cracking.

What is the worst music you have ever bought?

Wow, I've bought some really bad ones. I suppose my Boyz II Men collection would be on the money, but I don't think they are that bad.

What is the most embarrassing moment you have had on a football field?

The worst was probably for Wigan when I fell over the ball in front of goal - it was a proper 'mare.

Which former team-mate would you have the most fun with on a night out?

It would have to be Tony Warner, the Scouse goalkeeper. I go away with him every summer and we always have a right old laugh - proper good times. He's a really good laugh. I've got a few other mates in the game who are crackers though.

Who has the worst banter of any footballer you've come across?

Yeah, there are a few who give you nothing back and you can't have a laugh with. I was at Fulham with Zoltan Gera, who definitely has the weirdest banter of anyone I've ever come across. He is a proper oddball and a very weird kid. Moritz Volz was another proper weirdo - he used to cycle to training and occasionally to matches which says it all really.

Who is the third funniest man in football - behind yourself and Duncan Ferguson, obviously?!

Tony Warner cracks me up, but there are many lads in the game who can give you some good lines when you wind them up. But Tony is the man who I get on best with.

If you become a manager after your playing career, who would you most be like?

I'd be just like Pep Guardiola. I don't know about the stubble, but he is a very smooth fella isn't he?! Barcelona are the best team in the world, so he gets to stand there and do his thing. As for the suit or the tracky, I think both have a place in the game.
