> Catch up with Hollyoaks on 4OD.

We caught up with Andrew to find out what he likes to watch to relax between filming…

Favourite TV show to cheer you up:

How I Met Your Mother. I got told to watch this show by my best mate. We’ve watched every season since and quote it all the time. Also me and my girlfriend are going through all of it just now so if I’m watching it I’m usually with one of them.”

Favourite TV show to watch before going to sleep:

“Right now I’ve been watching Curb Your Enthusiasm which I’m loving, I get tired from cringing and laughing and then just pass out.”

TV show that reminds you of your childhood:

“Definitely Pokémon. I remember going to a childminder when I was around 5 and me and all the other kids there would sit religiously around the TV and watch it.”

TV show that reminds you of being a teenager:

“Well, I’m still kinda a teenager… probably all those documentary shows on National Geographic and the History channel (I’m just gonna lump all them into one) because a couple of years ago I was addicted to them, I was a total nerd hahaha. Air Crash Investigations made me fear flying with a passion… I was fine before that.”

Favourite “guilty pleasure” TV show:

I Survived on The Biography channel, where people talk about how they nearly died… would be fine I they didn’t edit it in a totally terrifying way with creepy background music. The worst, scariest show on TV!”

Favourite TV show to watch hungover:

Blue Planet. David Attenborough’s voice will cure the worst hangover.”

Axed TV show that you most wish would return:

Firefly because it’s amazing and I want more.”
