At the minute I’m lov­ing Veep. Ad­mit­tedly, I’m bi­ased be­cause Chris Ad­di­son, who di­rected quite a lot of it, is a mate of mine, but I’m just so thor­oughly en­joy­ing it. Ob­vi­ously it’s re­ally funny, but it’s also so smart. It sneaks in big ideas be­hind fan­tas­tic one-lin­ers.

The char­ac­ter de­vel­op­ment is re­ally in­ter­est­ing be­cause they all have their own re­la­tion­ships — plus

the jokes are bril­liant.

The great thing about mu­sic is that it’s al­ways alive. That’s why a song that re­minds you of some­one who’s not in your life any more is so pow­er­ful. The first al­bum I bought was Leisure by Blur, when I was 12 — it will al­ways be spe­cial

for that rea­son.
