Emergency Questions

What was the weirdest reason you ever skived off school?

The weirdest reason? Oh yeah, everybody skived. You have to. It’s like a rite of passage isn’t it? I can’t think of a  – There’s no weird reason; you just say, “We’re not going in.” That’s it. You fancy skipping. I remember very clearly an interesting experience with skiving. Our school was near a graveyard and we went into a church, me and my friend Janice – the two Janices, we were called – and we both were sort of there in this little church. And we said, “Do you believe in God?” “Do you believe in God?” “Let’s just ask for a sign.” And the doors did blow open. I’m telling you. So then we ran out screaming. But that did happen. Make of it what you will, especially this close to Halloween.

If your genitals had to be replaced by the face of one of the Muppets – the face would be able to interact and communicate in exactly the same way as the puppet – which puppet face would replace your genitals?

Aw, Big Bird. Every time.

I accidentally elbowed Denise van Outen in the face on Channel 5’s Celebrity Game Night. What is the worst injury you have directly or indirectly caused to a celebrity or person of renown?

*RH asks whether JC has injured anyone famous.* No. They’ll sue though, so I’m saying no. It wasn’t me.

Do you think they should introduce VAR (Video Assistant Referee)? Would you like that in every day life? What instance or arguments would you want replayed and resolved from recently?

I don’t want that. *RH asks whether JC has arguments with her family that could be resolved with VAR.* I’m never at home. I’m always working. No. That’s the answer: no.

Richard has been meaning to clean the drain outside his kitchen ever since he moved into his new house two years ago. What is the longest-running chore that you have been intending to do but keep putting off?

The longest-running chore. I don’t know really, love. It’s not the kind of thing I spend time thinking about. You just do what you need to do. You know, a chore. The word “chore” in interesting. What do you mean by “chore”? Anything you don’t want to do. The tax. I don’t like doing my tax. That’s a chore. That’s an absolute chore. 8RH asks whether JC does her taxes.* Yeah, of course I do. Yeah.

Have you ever seen a ghost?

I remember being in bed and then looking up and there was this sort of apparition above. I remember that. *RH asks JC to elaborate.* That’s all – I’m telling you. I’ve just explained what I saw. I don’t know what it was. Some things you just don’t know what they are. It was there. It was a ghostly kind of apparition. That’s all I can tell you. Make of that what you will. I kind of thought I was awake, but anyway – yeah.

If you had a finger that could travel through time…

I wish I put money on Boris Johnson being Prime Minister. Because I knew he was going to get in, even though I absolutely don’t like him. I wish I’d [unclear].
