Keith Chegwin’s TV choices

TV presenter Keith Chegwin stars alongside Joe Tracini (Coming of Age), Tony Blackburn (BBC Radio 2), Joe Pasquale, Russell Grant (Strictly Come Dancing) in new comedy horror film Kill Keith, out on DVD next week.

Kill Keith sees much-loved television personalities being gruesomely despatched using a variety of breakfast condiments and as the body count grows, so does the hysteria. There appears to be no stopping the Breakfast Cereal Killer as he marches relentlessly towards his ultimate goal… to kill Keith!

> Buy the DVD on Amazon.

We caught up with Keith to find out what he likes to watch to relax between filming…

Favourite TV show to watch before going to sleep:

“Sherlock Holmes. I love a good story and a good plot. I also enjoy competent acting. Sherlock has all those qualities.”

Favourite TV show to cheer you up:

“Graham Norton on Friday nights. I love him and the guests. It’s pure escapism and sets you up for a good weekend.”

TV show that reminds you of your childhood:

“Anything that has the words Robin Hood! I was a RH fan as a kid and would make my own bow and arrows to shoot in the garden. Having a TV series and a film on the go is brill for me.”

TV show that reminds you of being a teenager:

Big Brother – I shared a house with lots of mates and hated it too!”

Favourite “guilty pleasure” TV show:

Question Time or Newsnight. My family hate ’em – for some unknown reason I’m engrossed by them!”

TV show that you find most addictive:

Britain’s Got Talent or I’m a Celebrity or Dancing on Ice or The X Factor. Love them all. I love the winter months – these are great to snuggle up to.”

Axed TV show that you most wish would return:

“Anything I’ve been in during the last 44 years on TV. The repeat fees are rather good and I looked better then!”
