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!”
