Brian Con­ley

Woman (UK) - - On The Box -

The co­me­dian, singer and ac­tor is host­ing a new C4 show, Buy It Now, which show­cases in­ge­nious in­ven­tions. He tells us what’s in store and talks Strictly dance-floor ter­rors

How does the show work? you’ve got 90 sec­onds to pitch to an au­di­ence of 100 peo­ple. if they de­cide to buy your prod­uct, a panel of big re­tail­ers also get the chance to snap it up.

which in­ven­tions im­pressed you? i loved the sim­ple things. one guy had cre­ated a pair of un­break­able sun­glasses. i don’t know what he made them out of, but when i stamped on them, they were in­de­struc­tible!

did any demon­stra­tions go wrong? We had a spe­cial in­ven­tion for tak­ing self­ies with your dog, but the dog in the demo didn’t per­form as ex­pected and the au­di­ence were in hys­ter­ics.

How was your Strictly ex­pe­ri­ence last year? Won­der­ful, but it’s also the best lax­a­tive in show­biz! know­ing that 11 mil­lion peo­ple are about to watch you dance live is ter­ri­fy­ing.

what did your daugh­ters, amy, 20, and lucy, 16, think about you on the dance floor? they loved it. amy is study­ing in

is the best lax­a­tive in show­biz!’

aus­tralia. my fam­ily and friends wanted to come to the stu­dio every week, but con­tes­tants only get two tick­ets each, be­lieve it or not!

How do you re­lax? i just love be­ing a dad, go­ing on hol­i­day with the fam­ily, walk­ing my dogs. i’m back tour­ing at the mo­ment. mak­ing peo­ple laugh is such a won­der­ful hon­our. ✱ Buy It Now is on C4
