Which TV programme would you choose to be trapped in forever?
Sophie Scott
The Adventures of Abney & Teal. I’d like to spend eternity with an animated turnip.
Nadia Kamil
CLEARLY GBBO. Never-ending summer in a lovely British garden, with Mel & Sue. And obviously all the cakes & bread hats and that.
Julia Raeside
Lovejoy – no question. Tinker, Eric and Lady Jane, antiques, East Anglian countryside, that confident mullet and leather jacket combo. It’s actually perfect.
Julie Balloo
Rachel Extance
Lord Peter Wimsey. The perfect gentleman: charming, intelligent, fun. He gets to drive wonderful cars and can travel anywhere he likes, whenever he likes.
Sarah Ledger
I dream Friends is real and I’m one of them: firing off perfect one-liners & meeting for coffee in Central Perk. Sad, I know.
Hazel Davis
30 Rock.
Jen Brown
Only Fools and Horses. I’ve been in love with Del Boy for years.
Margaret Cabourn-Smith
Jam and Jerusalem – surrounded by idyllic pubs, funny women and scones.
Jen Offord
My So-Called Life, to legitimise my 20 year run of teenage angst. And accompanying crush on Jordan Catalano.
