Hi, I’m Archie, I’m 14 and I’m from Gloucestershire. I’m hugely into drawing, and any kind of art, really. I also enjoys cooking, but I’m not very good!

Favourite sport
I’m not the sportiest person. but I love playing hockey at school, and I love wakeboarding.

Favourite band or singer
I listen to all kinds of music, but at the moment I’m listen to the band, Imagine Dragons.

Unusual habit
Apparently I hum all the time, but I never realise I’m doing it.

Embarrassing or funny moment
One time in assembly at school, me and a few other people dressed up in a load of the school lost property. It was an effort by the staff for people to actually claim the stuff that they’d lost. I ended up in three coats, a skirt, and riding a one-wheeled skateboard.

What annoys me
Mostly my brothers, even though I love them, and also homework – just… homework.

If I ruled the world…
I’d try and get people to start taking saving the environment seriously, and actually doing some work towards it.

Why FYI?
I love news and current affairs and I’m also just really excited to be on a TV show!

FYI is a co-production with Sky Kids.
