Some great advice involving poo

Most Popular

If you like funny stuff and awkward human beings then you're probably a big fan of Tom Rosenthal off of the telly. You'll recognise his little face from hilarious shows like Friday Night Dinner and Plebs, but he's got a brand new show coming up soon called Flat TV, so we thought it was about time we got him to do our Life According To... quiz.

There's poo talk, a fairly unexpected patronus and some other things which might make you do a snort laugh, so check out all of Tom's answers to our weird and wonderful questions below.

You all know me as…

Well, I wouldn't say you all know me, but some of you might watch Plebs or Friday Night Dinner and know me as not the slave one, not the afro one and not the one in the Inbetweeners.

My closest friends call me…

Tom, or Rosey. I prefer Explosenthal.

My Patronus (from Harry Potter) would be…

I just did a test online and it told me 'Your patronus takes the form of a Frog. A frog is remarkably adaptable--capable of undergoing an astonishing transformation from tadpole to adult frog.' You asked.

My spirit animal would be…

In the new series of Plebs Stylax says to Marcus 'you're more of an eagle, 'coz of the beak.' And that is fundamentally my nose he's talking about. 

If I'm at a buffet table, the first thing I reach for is…

Whatever I'm in front of. Those buffet leaners are a disgrace.

My go-to karaoke song is…

Blur - Parklife, because it requires no singing ability and you get to do a taxi driver cockney accent.

If I got my leg stuck down a toilet, the first person I'd call would be…

Nobody has ever done this. How could anyone do this? 

People who …. should be sent to the moon.

Get their legs stuck down toilets.

My phone background is…

My lock screen is a picture of Arsenal player Mesut Özil and my home screen is a picture of my girlfriend. I love them both equally.

If I was going to adopt a famous person, I think I'd choose…

Someone under the age of 18 who was in need of a loving guardian.

If there's eggs for breakfast, I'll have them…

Please.

My three items to take into space are…

An iPad charger, an iPad with The Martian on it and potatoes.

I first realised I was officially famous when…

Someone came up to me in the street and said 'sorry mate are you in Pebbles?'

On my birthday I'd like...to jump out of the cake, 

Piers Morgan. And then all of us to just ignore him.   

The thing that would annoy you the most about me is…

My lack of ability to even conceive of someone getting their leg stuck down a toilet.

My ultimate pearls of wisdom for the world are…

'You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.' They're not technically my pearls of wisdom, they're Friedrich Nietszche's. Mine would be don't do a poo when you have clothes on.

Catch Tom in his new show Flat TV starting Thursday 24th March @18:00 on BBC Three - www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree & in Plebs when it returns to ITV2 this Spring.
