Amazing Technicolor Dream-Quotes

This week, I was filmed by a BBC1 documentary crew, while interviewing Lee Mead, winner of the channel's Any Dream Will Do 'reali-talent' contest, for heat magazine. I hadn't been previously aware that the crew would be present, and filming the lion's share of my chat with Lee, so it put me on the back-foot a tad. The problem with situations like this, is that interviewees become aware of a boom-mike hovering unsubtly above their head and think they're being interviewed for a TV show (please do not swear) rather than a magazine (please do swear and be a little more forthcoming than you might be on the box).

All things considered, it turned out well. I was extremely glad that I had a nice shirt on - and especially that I'd had a haircut the day before. Wasn't happy about being caught with spectacles on, mind. So if you've been losing sleep over what I might look like with four eyes, your misery will be alleviated come Christmas and the Winner's Story special...

Did you poke him in the eye like all musical theatre people deserve?? Please say yes.

I gave him a Chinese burn. Is that sufficient punishment for you, madam?
