Unoriginality? 'There's absolutely nothing about the family in Luv that has appeared in anything I've written about before. The fact that they have Liverpool accents doesn't mean it's like Bread. But the critics also say that, because I've got a nice big house, I can't know about life.'
Not funny? 'I don't sit down and think, 'I'm going to write something very funny.' I think of something desperate that people will identify with and apply my own particular sense of humour, my 'brushstrokes'. I think the tabloids get bored of my brushstrokes.'Reuse content
