178: Rob da Bank on festivals, fatherhood, and Mr Tumble

178: Rob da Bank on festivals, fatherhood, and Mr Tumble

By Ellie Gibson and Helen Thorn

How do you parent your kids when you were raised strictly, but you're a hippy at heart? How does it feel to be the second most famous person on the Isle of Wight? And what's Mr Tumble REALLY like? Answering all these questions is the amazing DJ Rob Da Bank!


We talk about how music was his escape when growing up in a rural backwater, and why, as an adult, he decided to make his kids live in a rural backwater. We learn how Rob ended up with four kids under 10, and why Fred Siriex is in charge of his family planning. As always we round off with some Scummy Mummy Confessions, including a special one just for Rob. 

SAFETY NOTICE: This episode was recorded before lockdown, no worries lads. And we're sad to say Camp Bestival has been called off this year, but with a bit of luck it'll be back in 2021. We'll be there with bells (and catsuits) on. 

You can follow Rob on Twitter @RobDaBank, or on Instagram @robdabank1973.

We're on Twitter (@scummymummies), Instagram, and Facebook. Please send your confessions to and visit us at If you like the podcast, please rate, review and subscribe!
