TV and ra­dio pre­sen­ter Toby An­stis picks his dream view­ing…

My favourite pro­grammes right now in­clude The Great Bri­tish Bake Off, which I think has landed so per­fectly on Chan­nel 4! I’m a big fan of The Ap­pren­tice, too – but this year’s in­take don’t ap­pear to be the smartest col­lec­tion of busi­ness part­ners!

The big one for me is Stranger

Things. Sea­son two is amaz­ing – I binged all nine episodes in one week­end! It’s ad­dic­tive, dra­matic, scary, sad, thrilling. It’s got ev­ery­thing! And it pushes that nos­tal­gia but­ton of when we were kids, go­ing out on our Chop­pers af­ter school…

My favourite film

is The Shaw­shank Re­demp­tion – it gets me ev­ery time. It’s so beau­ti­fully played and nar­rated by Mor­gan Free­man. The re­la­tion­ship be­tween him and Tim Rob­bins is so pow­er­ful and emo­tional, and the fi­nal bit where they meet up on the beach is stag­ger­ing.

I do like The One Show – it’s a bit of

a guilty plea­sure. I’m not even sure peo­ple know just how many A-lis­ters drop by The One Show. The whole thing is nice and easy com­fort view­ing – es­pe­cially on dark win­ter even­ings.

I would love to do Strictly – but

wouldn’t everybody? When I was 12, I was a ju­nior as­so­ciate at the Royal Bal­let and iron­i­cally in the same year as Darcey Bus­sell – but be­cause the boys and girls were kept sep­a­rate, we never got to meet!
