Gigi Edgley: It's sometimes nice just to look at the stars for a bit and remind yourself what it's all about. The bigger picture. Don't take it all too seriously. And remember that it is all a bit of a dream. Because we're these weird human things, stuck on a rock in the middle of nowhere. Yes you do have to work your arse off to get where you want to go, but at the same time you've got to be able to play.

Gigi Edgley: When my girlfriend and I went to Mexico. We where on the beach and she was calling "Gigi! Gigi!" and everyone was laughing their heads off - turns out that it sounds like the slang word for "tits". So she was yelling out "Tits! Tits!" And every male on the beach was going, "All right then!" Welcome to Mexico.
