Spud is voiced by John Marrows

John lives in Chesterfield with his wife, and has two daughters and four grandchildren. He was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1986 and now needs to use a wheelchair to get around.

John enjoys the theatre, but sometimes finds the smallest things a bit of a performance. "With the lack of disabled toilets, Iíve been in more ladies toilets than anywhere else. When you're stuck without a disabled toilet, itís the next best option really".

John is very determined to get things done in life: "I never believe people who say you canít do this because youíre disabled. I always think that no matter who you are youíve got something in you so you can do something".
