How do you take your tea?

Semi-skimmed or full-fat milk and no su­gar with English Break­fast or PG Tips. I don’t go for Earl Grey – it’s like nor­mal tea with a spoon of tal­cum pow­der.

Who would you most like to have a cup of tea with?

My par­ents, Theresa and Jim, who are no longer with us. We’d put the world to rights, ac­com­pa­nied by Vis­count bis­cuits and a sound­track of dance band mu­sic by Char­lie Kunz.

What would you choose for your last meal?

I’d have 30 roast pota­toes, bat­tered spam, choco­late eclairs and a sin­gle malt. A won­der­ful clos­ing re­bel­lion to eat the least healthy things pos­si­ble.

What did you want to be when you were lit­tle?

Jon Per­twee was my Doc­tor Who, then Tom Baker. I al­ways used to mimic them, but I’d mimic the mon­sters more. Mum had this plas­tic cus­tard jug which, if you talked into it, gave you the per­fect sound of a Dalek.

Tell us about your new tour.

The Great Bri­tish Take Off is a night of un­scripted com­edy, im­per­son­ation and con­ver­sa­tion. Don­ald Trump is one of the peo­ple I im­i­tate that I’d most like to meet… to see how petu­lant and taunt-able he re­ally is!

If you could have any­one’s voice, whose would you choose?

Some­one with a nice res­o­nant tone: Richard Bur­ton, Jon Per­twee... Or Paul O’Grady – his voice puts you in­stantly into a happy mood!
