Hell would be anyone political really though i’d like to invite Putin to ask what the f* is he doing.

Heaven would be Miranda and Lee Mack for the giggles, Ed Sheehan for a song and Bradley Cooper to gaze into his gorgeous blue eyes.

Food heaven would be roast duck or a beautifully cooked Indian.

Hell would be anything in pastry or beige.
