Meet Andy and the Odd Socks

Waiting in the big white tent backstage at BBC Summer Social I did my usual pre-interview checks.

Andy Day has been my son’s hero since the days of dinosaurs (on TV, not jurassic times) and I must admit I was feeling a little more nervous than usual as a result. What if he was nothing like his friendly, on-screen persona?

Worry not, Andy fans – The Odd Socks are great fun to be around. I even felt at home enough to tell them we had stuck googly eyes on our vacuum cleaner to make our own Groovy Hoover. Andy fans, you will know.
