Cool Kids
I was hanging out at Canal Street the other day. It was hard to find because someone had taken all the c’s and s’s off the sign. Not even a joke; it’s just true. I was in Vanilla, where I proved to be equally popular with the ladies than in any other bar in the world.

Guest Best Known
For her appearance on The Chase, though she also played Pocahontas in No Offence, which I’m really excited about.

Emergency Questions

Who’s the most surprising famous person you’ve been in a lift with? And which I mean, you can’t have gotten into the lift with them; they had to be in the lift you were in.

That is a tricky question. I’m just trying to think. Andrew Hayden-Smith, who was also in Doctor Who, but who was in a different episode of Doctor Who from me but yeah. I think that. Yeah, I think he’s in Hollyoaks now and he was in Rise of the Cybermen – the David Tennant cybermen story. No, nothing interesting in the lift. He was a boring lift compatriot. *Recalling a story told by BB, RH notes that a TARDIS is a kind of lift.* Yeah, I suppose it’s a time lift.

If you could take one item from any museum or art gallery – and you’re allowed to take it home with you – in the world, what would you take?

I mean, the velvet rope that they have around the – that they have around stuff. I’d like some of that for my house. *RH points out that BB could receive and sell a famous painting, thus enabling her to buy a great deal of velvet rope.* Yeah, I forgot the Mona Lisa. I might go and, like, draw a hat on it. I think she’d look good in a hat. I think that’s what’s missing from that. Actually, do you know what, which one I’d go for? I’d go for a piece of artwork by Coolidge called A Bold Bluff, which is more often known as the dogs playing poker. The original of that – that’s the one I’d want. Then I could make it into an even better artwork by cutting it in half and putting it in two jugs of formaldehyde – like a Damien Hirst. Combine the two greatest artists of all time.

If you had a finger that could travel through time…

Just thinking about all the people that I could poke in the eye. Oh. Oh God, I don’t know. Where would I go? Oh, I’d go back and flick Hitler, I think.
