This weekend the team at XXL hosts their Halloween special themed around the film IT, which features the scary clown Pennywise, so we asked some of the XXL DJs and owner Mark Ames what scares them the most…

Well funnily enough clowns have always given me the jitters, must been when i was a wee pup and being chased by one for having a slash against the big top at our local circus, so this Saturday should be very interesting…
There’ll be a nightmare on 10 Downing Street if Boris becomes PM.
I am belonephobic (fear of needles), which is absolutely ridiculous as I am covered in tattoos. Ever since I can remember, if I have had to go to the doctors for anything, from a blood test to a vaccination, I usually wake up on the floor having passed out. Apparently this is more common that people think, however it can be really embarrassing from time to time. It even led to me breaking my nose in secondary school, landing face first on the playground after my BCG vaccination.
Two things terrify me in equal measure: 1) The eternal empty black nothingness of death that awaits each and every one of us with a cold and stony certainty. And 2) Sweetcorn.
What am am I most scared of? I suppose death. It’s the great unknown: what happens to us? Is there a heaven or hell? It genuinely terrifies me not knowing what’s on the other side. Maybe there’s nothing at all and that’s even more scary! Oh, and rats. I don’t like rats. They really freak me out.
