Unrestricted View are:
Felicity trained as an actress at Bretton Hall & Mountview Academy.
Don’t let that smile fool you, she is the undefeated world cage-fighting champion and hard as nails.
She now live in a mansion in Los Angeles paid for with the millions she got from inventing ‘Hover Slippers’
She also hasn’t sent me her real bio yet.

Mark trained as an actor at Mountview Academy
Of course Mark is a household name after winning the triple-jump at the last 20 Olympic Games, although his distance of 227 meters at the 1920 games in Antwerp remains his best distance.
Old springy heels hasn’t sent me a bio either but in fairness, i haven’t asked him to yet. This therefore disproves the myth that Mark is psychic.
