He said: “We got into escapist TV during lockdown: Escape to the Country, couples looking round Spanish flats in A Place in the Sun.
“Oh, and Nine Perfect Strangers. Nicole Kidman is very spooky.”
The 36-year-old continued: “Cooking programmes, too, but not Celebrity MasterChef– I had an absolute nightmare when I was on it.”
Will took part in the recent 2021 series of Celebrity MasterChef, and attempted to impress judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode.
One challenge saw Gregg express his doubts about Will’s dish, admitting: “I’m very nervous of your chicken.”
Will eventually realised the chicken was undercooked, and said: “It’s not great, but there are lessons to draw from it. I’m really upset with myself.
“I shouldn’t have opened up the door so many times and let all that heat out.”
Although his next dish was more successful, the mistake cost him his place in the show, and he had to leave the competition in the early stages.
Meanwhile, Will has also revealed that The Repair Shop can sometimes make him emotional when he hears guests’ back stories.
“Luckily, we don’t go out live… Sometimes you have to get some air outside, especially if someone’s story triggers your own memories,” he mused.
