Ben Hatch was born in London and grew up there, in Manchester and also in Buckinghamshire, where he lived in a windmill that meant he was called Windy Miller at school. He now lives in Brighton with his tiny wife Dinah, and two children. He likes cheese and is balding although he disguises this fact by spiking his hair to a great height to distract people he wishes to impress.
The tallest Hatch who ever lived (5ft 9in) Ben is the son of Sir David Hatch, the radio performer and famous producer whose shadow Ben doesn't at all feel under. Ben maintains that he knows the cure for the common cold (tweet him to find this out) and that one of his relatives John Couch-Adams discovered the planet Neptune. Apparently, his aunty told him.
Ben writes a column for the Daily Telegraph.
