We caught up with Alfie to find out what he likes to watch to relax between shows…


TV show that reminds you of your childhood:

Time Tunnel was a US series and the repeats hit our screens in the 70’s. Operation Tic-Toc consisted of two cool dude doctors going into a psychedelic tunnel and going back in time for a 30 minute adventure every week. Loved it.”


TV show that reminds you of being a teenager:

Had to be Top of the Pops. There was no such thing as anti-social behaviour between 7.30 and 8pm on Thursday because every single teenager in the country was watching this show.”


Favourite TV show to cheer you up:



Favourite TV show to watch before going to sleep:

Newsnight. They will cover some interesting stuff but at some point it’s bound to get boring (especially now the Paxman has gone) and it’s a natural sedative to send you off to bed.”


Favourite “guilty pleasure” TV show:

Celebrity Big Brother. There’s something quite naughty but nice about watching the rich and famous show their vulnerabilities and let their mask slip.”


TV show that you find most addictive:

Come Dine With Me. (Someone just down the road from me had the team in and I turned into a nosey curtain-twitching neighbour for the night.)”


Favourite TV show to watch hungover:

“Either Coast or Canal Journeys, where I can just look effortlessly at the pictures (with the sound off!).”


Axed TV show that you most wish would return:

Show Me the Funny. I got an early stand-up break when I got to the final stages in 2011. It was like an X Factor for comedians but sadly ITV only ran one series.”
