Wishing you a Happy New Year in 2012!

Posted: Updated:

This past year, the almighty 2011, has been a rather tumultuous 365 days for me but one I shall look back upon fondly. I have battled with my more intransigent mental attitudes and explored various extremes of my nature.

At the start of the year I was still an addict with an over-abundance of inner conflict and an over-whelming desire to achieve. One journey took me into the depths of male escorting and I was paid for my body, another onto the holy grail of television the BBC to present a very clean cut weekend lottery show. I have performed more stand up comedy than ever before and still yearn to up the dates in 2012.

And I have finished the year with a life of celibacy, the writing of a comedy drama and bikram yoga.

And so 2012 begins and with this I must first give thanks.

Ball gags optional.

Watch 'Confessions of a Sex Addict' on BBC Three, 11 January 2012, 9PM (GMT).
