Hugh was born in Ket­ter­ing. His fa­ther was a vicar and his mum was a pri­mary school teacher. The fam­ily moved to the East End of Lon­don when Hugh was three months old.

Hugh, 55, was a fan of C4’s Home­land un­til his wife let him in on a se­cret, ‘My wife was at col­lege with Damian Lewis, so ev­ery time it was on she’d say, “I snogged him in a car park!”.

Hugh’s nick­name is ‘Desk’, ‘The name was given to me on about my third day at univer­sity. In fact some of my mates still call me Desk – and weirdly, so does Sue Perkins, who I wasn’’t even at univer­sity with!’
