If you had to be stuck in a lift with someone, who would it be?
It would be William Shatner. Damn. I should have said the saucy one off of Heroes.

What is your biggest fear?
Madness; homelessness; death by fire and big, hairy spiders.
Do you have any superstitions?
I salute magpies and wish on the back of hay trucks. Not proper superstitions, just mild obsessive compulsive disorder.
If you could only have one song on your iPod, what would it be?
The Pentium Processor jingle. Der-ding der-ding! Cheery.
What's the most expensive item you've ever bought, not including property or cars?
Weapons grade uranium.
What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?
Send in the clown. When it's all going wrong, do something stupid; have fun. This works much better in performance than in day-to-day life.
When was the last time you cried?
Watching some mediocre film – I'm a soft touch for waterworks then, but never in real life. Twisted.
What's your indulgence?
Tanqueray 10 (gin).
How environmentally friendly are you?
Not nearly enough. I quite often find myself taking out the recycling then getting in the car and driving 500 miles.
What item could you not live without?
If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
No, I can't think of anything. I'm marvellous.
What were you doing this time yesterday?
I was talking rubbish on the telly.
What will you be doing this time tomorrow?
