According to Wikifeet, an online database dedicated to celebrity feet, Solly’s feet currently have a three-star rating. This is a little low compared to lots of other stars who are listed on the website, but since Solly’s feet only have four votes at the moment, I think we can cut him a little slack for now.

Although it would be nice to know more about him, it’s easy to understand why he has chosen to stay a little more on the private side.
