Ben Miller interview

What’s your favourite way to relax? I’ve recently been to Ibiza with my partner Jessica and son Sonny, just frolicking on the beach, which was great. I do love playing with Sonny – our favourite game is ‘squirrels’. We pretend that we’re both squirrels and we’re hiding nuts for the winter. It’s brilliant!

My loves Science. I studied physics at university and I’m still a sucker for an experiment or scientific theory. Brian Cox’s Wonders Of The Universe programmes had me hooked.

Bob Dylan. I will listen to any of his songs over and over.

Tea. I’m an enormous fan of it and I like tea as it was drunk before the Second World War – made with proper loose leaf tea leaves.

London. It’s amazing how you can discover new things in the city every day. It’s such a random place, a collection of villages.

My hates Taramasalata. I had some in Greece that had gone off when I was in my 20s and it’s put me off it ever since.

The gym. Actually I don’t mind the gym when I get there, but I hate the psychological battle I have to go through to get there.

A bad meal.
Every meal is so important and colours the rest of your day – my whole day can go into a spin if I make the wrong choice at lunchtime!
