Have you taken acid?

More times than I’ve had hot dinners. It was the best thing ever till I got to a sensible age. After over-severe, prolonged use, my mind is weakened and I can no longer do it. Sad times.

If you could pick a surrogate grandparent, who would it be?

I was forced to wear a nappy and walk round Brighton on my stag do. I’ll say no more.

Gene Wilder.

13.

Tough one. Probably not as I think he’s a bit of a bell. Could be quite interesting though. Maybe.

First, Danny Dyer – I think he’s mint, but that’s taboo I know. Next Danny De Vito – because of Twins. Then Daniel Day-Lewis. He’s an over actor.

Is there a piece of advice you wish you’d given to yourself ten years ago?

Don’t get so battered all the time you numpty, and then you’ll have a career.
