What made you want to do it?
I spoke to a couple of people who have done it and had various results. One won and the other didn’t!
Will you feel like you have to entertain people in the House?
I think there is a difference between entertaining a bunch of what you might call ‘normal’ people and entertaining a bunch if egocentrics who don’t like anyone being funnier than they are. Or even, in my case, more attractive.
How long do you think you’ll be in the House?
I’m not interested in winning it really. I like to participate and enjoy the experience; it’s an irrelevance to me when I leave. I’ve done one or two cooking shows and been kicked off at the first stage and they said, ‘Why are you smiling to be kicked off?’ But it’s the doing of it really that is the interesting thing.
Is there anyone you wouldn’t want to see in the House?
I don’t think so, no. The wife’s working tomorrow! But I know what twisted minds there are working in this project!
Is there anything you’re worried about?
Only if I lose my tempter, which I do occasionally, and there will be the most violent outburst of volatile filth you have ever heard in your life and it will come like a volcano. I shall have to be very careful to tame it!
Do you have any bad habits?
Flatulence. It does annoy the wife.
And what bad habits annoy you?
Personal uncleanliness and smelling, just being vile.
How will you handle a bad reaction from the crowd?
I’ll encourage it. I’ll set it to music. Let the bile flow and get it out of your systems! Booing is good. At pantomimes we encourage it and it releases something. It’s only right and proper that they should boo. I think just walking on in what I’ll be wearing will be enough to get it going.
