Co­me­dian and host John Robins picks his dream view­ing…

Inside Soap - - INSIDE TV -

I’ve fin­ished watch­ing the Bake Off fi­nal on catch-up, and I was Team Rahul from the start, so that felt great – but all of the con­tes­tants were good. I love Prue Leith, too. I’m a real Great Bri­tish

Menu com­pletist, so as sad as I was to see Prue leave that show, it’s nice to have her on Bake Off – she’s got such en­ergy, and she’s so colour­ful and fun.

The things I watch to re­lax are pro­grammes like Traf­fic Cops and Po­lice In­ter­cep­tors, or a doc­u­men­tary about the A1! So much of my job is spent trav­el­ling, and I’m quite a per­nick­ety driver, so there’s a lot of wish­ful­fil­ment where you see the peo­ple who ruin your day on the roads fi­nally get­ting ar­rested!

I don’t re­ally watch stand-up or panel shows on TV, al­though I do watch Would I Lie To You?

ev­ery so of­ten, I re­ally like Bob Mor­timer on it. I have favourite sit­coms that I watch again and again, like I’m Alan Par­tridge and Bot­tom. I also re­ally en­joyed Flow­ers.

When I was young I watched things like French & Saun­ders and Russ Ab­bot’s Mad­house – all the sketch shows. And Cracker, which I think is the best show ever made. I used to stay up and watch that with my mum, prob­a­bly when I was too young to have been watch­ing it…

I’d love to be a judge on Great Bri­tish Menu, but I cer­tainly wouldn’t be eat­ing any meat. Or I’d like to do a tour of the UK’S ser­vice sta­tions as if it was the Hol­i­day pro­gramme – that would be an ab­so­lute dream!
