You may have seen Shaun Crawley guesting on various shows here at Ideal World – but we know you want to know more about him! We’re sure you’ll be delighted to hear that he’ll be appearing on your screens more often with his own shows!
We asked Shaun a few questions about himself that you’ll want to hear the answers to! Keep on reading to find out what they are…
What’s it like working with your wife, Hayley Green?
“Well, how do I start! We’re not actually married but we have been together for 27 years, can’t believe it! We actually met through work when we were Bluecoats at Pontins, entertaining, singing and dancing. From then on we always worked together as a duo and a team.
We were lucky enough to travel abroad to various countries presenting shows and then toured theatres in the UK in several shows. We then went into sales at exhibitions and the only time we haven’t worked together was when Hayley came to work full time at Ideal Word. Thankfully it was only a matter of time until we were back working together as I was offered a position as the interiors guest due to my experience in exhibitions and the travel industry and now I’m lucky enough to be part of the presenting team and we’re back together in our work and home life.
The way we like it, it just works for us and we are a great team. As far as I’m concerned the more time I can spend with Hayley the better!”
What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you?
“That’s easy! I was working as an airport rep in The Algarve, Portugal, and had a very early transfer to take 50+ people into the airport for their flight home. Well, I overslept and you can picture the scene as I ran around the apartment with both myself and Hayley trying to dress me at top speed. I got to the coach 30 minutes late to find the guests not pleased at all, but I managed to get out of it by telling a small tall tale that the company had sent me to the wrong hotel. We managed to get to the airport with 25 minutes to spare!!! Apologies if you were on that flight!!”
What is your greatest achievement?
“Having Hayley Green as my partner in all I do. She’s my workmate, my teammate, my best friend and the woman I turn to for all and everything, and I don’t care if it sounds soppy, I couldn’t live without her. Hayley is my soulmate.”
If you could be someone famous for the day, who would you be and why?
“I would love to have been around in the Hollywood Heydays, as I have always wanted to be an actor, singer and dancer so maybe someone like Fred Astaire who could do all 3 to the highest standard and be part of the bygone era of Hollywood Musicals.”
What’s your favourite thing to do on your day off?
“Just to get back to where we live in Leamington Spa and spend the night in our own house! It doesn’t happen very often as we live at least half the week near the Ideal World Studios in Peterborough. but a nice meal that we cook together, some great music and fine wine and we are happy!”
