  • Quotes

    • Jules: (on one of the best places he has travelled to for work) The Antarctic - A couple of years ago, I flew over the dramatic icy landscape on a special Qantas flight, and it really feels like the final frontier. Besides spectacular scenery, I'm not entirely sure how much there is down there to keep me entertained, but I think I've got some ice skates lying around at home somewhere.

    • Jules: (on his new role as host of "Big Questions") I'll have more splinters than you can imagine, sitting on that fence. But there's nothing better than watching celebs get really fired up…all about whether they scrunch or fold their toilet paper!

    • Jules: (on his role on Getaway) On Saturday we were in Antarctica for the day and then Sunday we were fishing in Wooli. This is definitely a bizarre job.

    • Jules: (on the weirdest place he's been) A couple of years ago I found myself in Spain, sprinting down an alleyway as 12 rampaging bulls tried to turn me into a pin cushion. I was only inches away from being gored as one bull swiped at my rib cage, only to miss and tear off my shoe.

    • Jules: (on the coolest place he's been) To meet the Masai warriors in Africa. They're a fascinating tribe who are just as primitive today as they were hundreds of years ago - except they love watches! Pity they can't tell the time. My initiation was to drink warm cow's blood mixed with urine and milk. Not cool.

    • Jules: (on what he wanted be as a child) When I was a kid I wanted to be Michael Jackson. And I can't tell you how happy I am that didn't turn out. Then I wanted to be a vet, a graphic designer, a hypnotist and, finally, I thought I might give TV presenting a shot.
