Pronounced Dugger

Fighting for the People's BBC will be new Shadow Culture Secretary Michael Dugher, MP for Barnsley East since 2010.

Michael (McAuley Catholic High School, Doncaster, and BA Politics Nottingham) was born in Edlington, overlooking the Yorkshire Main Colliery, and now lives in Birdwell in his constituency. Sunday nights he makes curries - and often tweets photographic evidence. His grandfather was Anglo-Indian.

Dugher had the odd brush with the Press when working for Gordon Brown, trying to get them to downplay details of a cleaning contract, shared with his brother.

He likes the Beatles, Del Amitri and Sinatra, plays the guitar, and went to the Ivor Novello Awards and the Mercury Music Prize events in 2013, and the Cheltenham Gold Cup in 2012.
