Jago Lee, executive producer and co-founder of London-based NERD (New Entertainment Research and Design), shares three things people may not know about him.

1. I hold a Guinness World Record for pea eating – 204 cold tinned peas speared and consumed individually with a cocktail stick in three minutes.

2. I was the first producer to gain permission to excavate the Tomb of Christ at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Unfortunately all the forensic team was able to find was a creased photo of Elvis stuffed into the wall by a tourist.

3. My first job was working in a chicken farm, wringing necks and clipping beaks. It turned out to be a pretty good training for TV!
