We were first shown a picture of Alan by a talent scout who had been looking for models with distinguished faces. All that we knew was that he was fifty-five years of age and lived in the same beautiful spa town as our very own Stuart Wilson. Mr Audley was clearly a man yearning for a bit of mid-life mischief and had decided to start the ball rolling with some healthy exhibitionism.
We thought it was more than likely that this gentleman had been married for many years with grown-up off-spring; probably successful in something to do with money or law and from the sound of Alan's voice on the telephone (he sounds like Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall) it was fair to assume he'd enjoyed a fairly traditional, even privileged upbringing. We were basically spot-on in our assumptions and couldn't wait to meet this enthusiastic friendly chap.
It's almost impossible to convey in a photograph the warmth and sense of fun you feel in the company of this jovial ex-public schoolboy. He is constantly joking and giggling and although there's no doubt that in his classic suit Alan looks very much the stern conservative bank manger of yesteryear, as soon as he removes that tie and puts on his jeans and polo shirt – and grins – he looks at least ten years younger.
Personal and professional success over many years can certainly bring about and a fair degree of confidence and happiness but you are either born with a generous kind spirit or you are not. Alan is the kind of young-at-heart fun-loving hubby, dad or father-in-law anyone could wish to have and we are delighted to be able to offer our readers a chance for a delicious internet fling with him.
