[on working on breakfast television] One minute you'd be interviewing Madonna, the next it would be the Prime Minister, then someone who'd walked across the country and raised thousands for charity. And there is a real intimacy about that kind of broadcasting. Often you are the first person people will see in the morning.
[on the difference between working on GMTV (1993) and Tipping Point (2012)] Live TV is the most exciting thing in the world to do, whether it's football, or on something like GMTV as anything can happen at any time. So you are always waiting for disaster to strike, although 80% of the time it doesn't happen. This is a very different situation as I have four contestants all trying to do the best they can and I want them to be comfortable and we want to create the best programme we can. So it's a very different skill but just as enjoyable.
