Your favourite TV double act?
Can I say Simon Pegg and Nick Frost? I adore them both separately but I especially love them when they’re together. Thinking about them makes me weep with laughter. It’s on TV all the time, but I will never tire of Shaun of the Dead.
Where and with whom are you happiest?
With my boys at home, reading them stories. That’s what I love doing. They’re eight, ten and 12 but they all like the Greek myths, the 12 labours of Hercules is a particular favourite of theirs actually.
Who should win RT’s Audience Award?
I’d choose Gogglebox; how did it take so long for someone to turn the cameras on the viewers? I remember watching them watching my jive on Strictly and they all got up off their sofas and started doing it as well – I absolutely loved it. And then Leon said, “She’s the one who’s always showing her legs on breakfast television.”
British Academy Television Awards are on Sunday 18 May at 8:00pm on BBC1.
