Billy is the most eligible man in Scotland according to Scotland on Sunday's Top 50 Eligible men! Here's what they said:
Conquests: Billy is a self-confessed ladies man and he is currently keeping his options open.
Pluses: He'd fight for you and in some style. Some type of judo-type thingie.
Minuses: Being chased by hobbit freaks.
Haunts: At forthcoming Lord of the Rings premieres all around the world, in city pubs with his website designer Billy has a slightly off-the-wall sense of humour.
Billy had been voted second up until the latest poll - Prince William having beaten him to the top spot... which doesnt make much sense on my end as Prince William ISNT BLOODY SCOTTISH!
Lord of the Rings was the only book Billy did not read while working as a book binder. He tried to read it once once when on holiday in the USA but after a few chapters he dropped it into the pool! Ooops!
