Ant said: “Well, you know something? I’ve been in this business for a long time, brother! And there are three things that energise me and my little Champaholics in the PWF… Flair, prayer and red hair. A flair for doing whatever it takes to stay on top, prayer to keep the tax man off my back and red hair because that’s what gives me strength. And in Scotland, I’ll tell you how I survived life in the squared circle. That’s right, the Ginge is heading to the Fringe with his awesome new show… Better Red than Dead!”
