Schoolchildren and older people like the idea of planting trees. For children, it's interesting that an acorn will grow into an oak, and for older people it's a legacy. And the act of planting a tree is not that difficult.
Gardening has just sort of grown on me. I find it therapeutic. And I like smelly things.
Tree roots hold river banks together and stop the wind blowing soil away, there are many creatures that live in woods and they provide a sense of well-being and look nice.
Research gathered over recent years has highlighted the countless benefits to people, wildlife and the environment that come from planting trees and creating new woodland habitat. It's obvious trees are good things.
My favourite plant is the foxglove. I think they are a perfect balance between being a garden plant and a wild plant, as at home in woodland as they are in a city.
I do find myself surprised by the comedy shows that seem to have the same joke week in week out.
I have done well out of TV, but not well enough to buy football clubs. I'm not sure it's ever a way to make money.
I don't think I'm really a rude person, but now I see myself on television, I think, 'Oh, God, that is a bit strong.' And I wonder if I've always been like that and I haven't been aware of it.
I like being forced to think about things in a different way.
I like New York. There are similarities with London that make it feel rather like home, but at the same time it's slightly fictional.
I think political correctness is a moving line.
I try to make myself walk around a bit, but I probably think about it more than I actually do it. Years ago, I did think about joining a gym.
I'm a trained lawyer, after all, so I don't have to admit to anything.
I'm pale-skinned so I don't feel at my best on a beach.
I've always liked trees. And then, growing up, I took an interest in ecology, hedges being destroyed, the landscape being turned into prairies.
