THE DADDY OF ALL DAYS

We find out what kind of Father’s Day dad-of-two Matt Benstead has to look forward to thanks to his kids Hugo, 6, and Cecilia, 4, and their unique approach to the day

Breakfast in bed

Hugo: “We never bring breakfast in bed but today is special. Daddy normally does most of the cooking but we tried this time. We can’t wait to go downstairs to play with our toys though.”

Cecilia: “Daddy is so lazy – he sleeps in bed for so long, so I just jump on him in the morning! But we’ll make a special chocolate cake together later.”

Music man

Hugo: “My favourite song is Feel it Still by Portugal. The Man, but I like Daddy’s music as well – he listens to better music than Mummy, so for Father’s Day he can be in charge of the music at home and when we go out in the car.”

Cecilia: “I like Mamma Mia by Abba – Daddy’s music is good but Mummy has much better taste.”
