Jamie van Dyke

I’m Jamie van Dyke. I was born in the North of England in a little town called Steeton. My Father was Dutch (he passed away) and my Mother is British. I’m in my mid thirties and my hair is balding slightly at the back, which is a little depressing. I only have two children as far as I’m aware, they are Lex (my son, who is 9) and Liesel (my Daughter, who is 17). I’m engaged to Kelly Baker who is clearly a little dizzy because she wants to marry me!

And now for the Ugly Truth. I’m a grumpy man with a twist of humour, I’ll make you laugh but I’m one hell of a cynic! I strive for perfection in most of the things I do and I’m disappointed with other’s actions toward those around them. I don’t think I’m the best Father in the world, nor am I the best partner or worker, but I work as hard as I can to be them. What I would say though is that I’m a lot like Marmite, you either love me or hate me and there’s very rarely a middle ground. I’m extremely helpful, but suffer from an inability to say “no” to those that need my help, so sometimes I spread myself too thin with too many things to do. I apologise for that.
