Basically, I'm a really bad interviewer.
I love meeting celebrities, but then I get a bit bored. Once you meet them you thing, 'really, what an ordinary person'.
The first year I was on the show, it took an interviewer about 45 minutes to get it out of me that I even had a dog, and even then I wouldn't tell him the dog's name.
Indeed in the full flush of journalistic passion and conviction I once told an interviewer that of course I would never get married. And I most definitely would never have children.
It's kind of a shame that it's even an issue.
Not being gay, I can't fully appreciate how complicated that is. In the article, the interviewer asked me, and I said that if I were, I would just say it.
