The Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards are so close, we can almost smell the slime. In run up to the biggest kid’s award show of the year, we chat with Jake from Rixton about the awards, slime and more!
Hey Jake! You’re nominated for a KCA at the Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Award – how does that feel?
It makes me feel very happy! It’s an honour and it’s our first award we’ve ever been nominated for so it feels incredible. I can’t wait!
There is a lot of slime in the awards- if you could slime anyone in the world, who would it be?
Umm… Kayne West for being an idiot!
Good one! What’s on your rider?
We have sunday roast, bottles of wine and we have lots of basic fruit and veg!
Very British! What is your favourite app on your phone?
I do love a bit of Inteflora, you know the app where you can literally send flowers in 10 minutes? I’ve been sending flowers to everyone lately!
Aww, that’s cute! Your dad is on Eastenders, would you ever like to appear as a guest role one day?
I dunno – a few years ago, maybe, when I was doing me acting, but as of now, you know, he’s doing his own thing, the show is very successful… but I’d love to at one point! Who knows?
We’d love to see you make a cameo! Do you watch the show regularly?
We’ve been in America for so long so I haven’t been able to watch but I’ve been reading online or he’ll tell me on the phone.
What’s the worst injury you’ve ever had?
I broke my arm once totally! I was playing ice hockey with friends as I used to play and I fell and landed awkwardly and snapped my arm which was very painful!
Aww no! What does each member or Rixton smell like?
Charlie smells very elegant! He’s got this kind of mature smell about him – I dunno what that means! Danny’s got a straight up man smell. And Lewi’s the drummer who doesn’t wash much, he smells a bit.
What hidden talents do you have?
Lewi can do backflips and stuff. Charlie’s hidden talent is that he’s a great banjo player. Danny’s got a very long tongue!
What’s your favourite word to say?
Unfathomable! No idea what it means, but it sounds great, doesn’t it?!
Yes! Very intelligent. Do you stand or sit when you go to pee?
I’m a stander! It depends on what mood I’m in. If I’m lazy I’ll have a sit.
Who’s the most inspirational person you’ve ever met?
We met Will Smith once backstage a show and he gave us some incredible advice about being yourself and just doing things that makes you happy.
Awesome, Thanks Jake! Good luck with the KCAs!
