Serge: City, without a shadow.
A: Beach or skiing?
A: Your finest moment?
S: Ooh, to date, obviously having my lovely baby boy, Ennio.
Scoring that goal at Old Trafford has to be the next.
A: Who do you most admire in Leicestershire sport?
S: There are a few but, do you know what, Birch, I'm going to say you. For all the years I've been going down the City and for all you do, it has to be you.
A: You're definitely the best person I've interviewed.
S: That's lovely, I feel a bit embarrassed now.
A: Who or what is your greatest love?
S: Family of course, but family aside I would say Italy – obviously because of my family links (Serge's father emigrated from Genoa to England).
A: Would you do I'm A Celebrity?
S: Never! You wouldn't get me eating testicles.
A: First record you bought?
S: George Harrison, Got My Mind Set On You.
A: What living or dead musician/band would you see?
S: Jimi Hendrix. No one has got anywhere near him, ever.
A: Who inspired you when you were starting out?
S: The rave scene was such a huge part of growing up for me. Made me want to play guitar.
A: What makes you laugh?
S: Stuart Lee – brilliant.
A: Greatest moment in Leicester's sporting history?
S: The Derby 2-1 Walshy double (City beat Derby in a play-off at Wembley in 1994, with Steve Walsh scoring both goals).
A: Alton Towers or Rutland Water?
S: Rutland Water. I'm not into roller-coasters, my life is fast enough as it is.
A: What makes you angry?
S: Losing to Derby!
A: Biggest sporting thrill of 2012?
S: Nugent's goal against Wolves – the second goal.
A: Any rituals routine before going on stage?
S: A pint glass with Admiral Vern's Rum – 60/40 measure with ice and coke – that's it.
A: If there was an emblem on the M1 signifying people had entered Leicester, what should it be?
S: The fox encapsulates the city.
A: Which would you prefer as a career, professional footballer or Kasabian?
