When Bradley asked: "Are you one of these teachers that dresses up?" Peter replied: "If I'm bored, I start to do different accents and things.

"That's the essence of teaching though, keeping everyone engaged... I think that's the way to do it?"

He added: "Well, I had a good teacher myself. My dad was a pretty good teacher. He didn't teach but he coached a lot of football.

"Norbert Peter Stiles."

In case you didn't know, Peter's dad, most commonly known as Nobby Stiles, was one of the legendary footballers who helped England lift the World Cup back in 1966 (the only time the country has ever won) after beating West Germany 4-2 in the final.

Open-mouthed, Bradley said: "No! How about that?

"The unsung hero of that World Cup. I could talk for ages about your dad. However, this is you and this is now."
