In a 2020 interview,Halfordsaid "I used to have a beautiful kitty cat calledBen, who lived a long life and then suddenly passed, like they all do. It's like losing a family member. But it was kind of difficult, because I'm on the road all the time and there's nobody here at the house. So I'm kind of making up for that with my cat t-shirts every Saturdayon my Instagram, which is a lot of fun."
