Favourite TV show to cheer you up:

“I really love The IT Crowd. it’s super silly but really makes me laugh!”

Favourite TV show to watch before going to sleep:

“I like to put on a bit of Sex and the City. I think I might know every scene by heart by now, but the girls feel like my friends!”

TV show that reminds you of your childhood:

Mr Benn, I loved that show and have a massive print in my living room of Mr Benn saying ‘cheerio’ in the doorway of the fancy dress shop!”

TV show that reminds you of being a teenager:

“I think it has to be Friends. I remember watching the season finale when Ross said ‘Rachel’ at the alter and you could hear people all down the street shouting ‘NOOOOOOO’ at their TV!”

Your favourite “guilty pleasure” TV show:

“Probably 16 and Pregnant and the spin-off show, Teen Mom. I’ve started to really care what happens to these girls!”

TV show that you find most addictive:

“I find a lot of the American shows very addictive! I remember staying up for almost 24 hours watching Prison Break as every episode ended on a cliff hanger!”

Favourite TV show to watch hungover:

Friends. Eeveryone knows it so well and it’s very easy to just watch episode after episode!”

Axed TV show that you most wish would return:

“Probably Sex and the City. I loved that show! However, I really didn’t enjoy the last film so I’d be worried if they did do another series that it wouldn’t live up to the original.”
