How much TV do you watch?
I have been watching Match of the Day religiously for the past 45 years. Beyond that I binge on other stuff — Cheers, House of Cards…
How many screens do you have at home?
A TV in the living room for my two girls, a sports one in the back room for me, and my eldest daughter has one in her room. I also watch sport on my phone — mostly Manchester United matches, but I’d watch tractor racing if it was on!
What did you watch as a child?
Anything! I come from a generation in Northern Ireland where you couldn’t watch TV on a Sunday — it was a religious thing. So I thought watching TV was special — I loved it! I remember being nine years old when we got a colour TV and just staring because I couldn’t believe it. I feel sorry for my kids because they’ve lost that wonder.
First TV crush?
Sue Lawley. I’ve always had a thing about newsreaders.
Audience award favourite?
Sheridan Smith was sensational in Cilla but I’d rather we won!
