Elvis – Age 53
“I changed my name to Elvis Aaron Presley. I wanted my wife to change hers to Lisa Marie but she but she wouldn’t have any of that! I’m not someone who just wears a uniform and does what I get paid for, I like to be on my toes and really help people.”
I like to be on my toes and help people, perhaps they can’t read the board, I’ll give them 5 minutes and help them out. I had a little letter sent to me recently where I got an award for my services to this lady. She was feeling unwell so I called the station she was going to to make sure she was ok. She was on her way to Scotland and I’ve got the card she sent me to say thank you. That’s the way I like to be.
I’m not one of these people who just wear a uniform and do what I get paid to do. In my spare time I play football and I do singing, but basically I just chill out. My wife had cancer so I’ve been looking after her the past year, so I like to relax at home with a few beers. I don’t really go out out.
Thirty years after Elvis’ death I went on the One Show with Adrian Chiles and they were going to do a piece on me because I changed my name to Elvis, but then this other bloke got in first and he got the limelight. I changed my name to Elvis Aaron Presley. I don’t get the micky taken out of me like I used to, over the years people have got to know. I tried to change my wife’s name to Lisa Marie but she wouldn’t have any of that!
