What is your guilty TV pleasure?
It used to be watching Countdown with Richard Whiteley with the subtitles on because they used to capitalise his jokes, so that you knew when he was making them. Now it's Pingu; I like all the noises he makes, and his seal friend. Which TV series would you take to a desert island?
How to Escape a Desert Island, parts one, two and three. What are you enjoying on television at the moment?
On Sky I can get BBC Scotland and on there I watch Limmy's Show!, a surreal sketch show by Brian Limond. He reminds me of Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer and I think he'll be the next big thing in comedy. I never miss an episode.
I'm also watching Friday Night Dinner, written by Robert Popper - I love everything he writes and it reminds me of Friday night dinners at home when I was a child.
Your Radio 2 comedy series And the Winner Is returns this week. Who would your ideal guests be?
Peter Kay, who is hysterical, Germaine Greer who was in Come Fly with Me and is a fascinating woman, and Limmy.
Who was the last person you changed channels to avoid?
Myself. If I am flicking through the channels and a repeat of Little Britain is on BBC3, I flick right on. I watch the shows in edits, but I would never watch myself on TV. How do I feel when I do come across myself? Turned on.
What was the last TV show you recommended to a friend?
I recently watched Boys from the Blackstuff and recommended that to all my friends - and Mad Men. They are both ground-breaking, great dramas and I would tell everyone to watch them. Mad Men is not like any other show that is or has been on TV.
Would you ever appear on I'm a Celebrity...
I would go into the jungle if I could take my bed, my TV, my fridge, a butler, a chef, an assistant, Sky+, my friends, my family, if I didn't have to eat bugs, do any challenges or wake up before midday. If ITV could arrange all that, I would happily go to Australia.
I would also like to be reincarnated as a talented dog that does tricks so I could be on Britain's Got Talent, because at the moment I don't have any that would win that show.
Which TV personality has disappointed you in person?
Terry Jones. I was expecting him to be nice. That's all I'll say.
Who do you like to wake up to and go to bed with on the radio?
I don't listen to the radio that much, but my friend Alfie Boe the opera singer is staying with me at the moment and he's been waking me up with his singing in the mornings.
Who was the first TV personality you fancied?
Lori Singer who played Julie in Fame. She had a pretty face, could play the cello and had big boobs - but not so big that they're intimidating.
Do you ever Google yourself?
Once a minute. I don't want to be vain so I try to wait at least 45 seconds between searches. I also take back newspapers that don't have me in them and ask for my money back. The newsagents tend to understand.
Is there a part you would really like to play?
I'd like to play the youngest Mitchell brother in EastEnders, but I would have to learn how to talk really quietly and menacingly.
Failing that, Pat Butcher's long-lost sister Nat, who would obviously also have a penchant for bleached hair, big earrings and leopard print.
