Mr Daubney, from Nottingham, has also had a colourful career in the public eye.
The 48-year-old father-of-two (he describes the EU referendum result as the third best day of his life) had an eight-year stint as editor of Loaded, where he revelled in his nickname “The King of the Lads”.
“I loved every minute of it,” he says. “I got drunk with Noel Gallagher, I drove across America with Abi Titmuss with a pillowcase full of booze.
“Often I had to pinch myself that I was doing that job. It was every lad’s dream. I get it thrown back at me now that it was all sexist, but we were in an era when we were paying a cover girl more for a day’s photo shoot than we paid the writer that interviewed them in a year. It was a working class, primal product that taught me a lot about life.”
He’s now a men’s rights and mental health awareness activist, and talks passionately about issues including male suicide and social mobility for working class men.
