We caught up with Amy to find out what she likes to watch to relax between filming…
TV show to cheer you up:
“Anything that makes my sides hurt from laughing! I love Would I Lie to You or a good bit of stand-up like Michael McIntyre or Lee Mack.”
TV show to watch before going to sleep:
“I love a good drama just before I sleep, like a bedtime story! Recent favourites have been Downton Abbey, Birdsong and White Heat.”
Favourite “guilty pleasure” TV show:
“No telling ok?! For my sins it’s Made in Chelsea… I’m actually pretty excited about the next episode.”
TV show that reminds you of your childhood:
“I didn’t have TV until I was 18 so I was deprived of the joys of childhood TV! I’m a dab hand at arts and crafts though!”
TV show that reminds you of being a teenager:
“Still no TV… but we had neighbours who did! Every Thursday night we’d go over and watch Strange but True, a pretty dire supernatural documentary, but back then I loved it!”
