Full synopsis

Mathew Horne answers a few quick questions about drinking...

What's your secret drunk munchies food?

Spaghetti Carbonara with Spaghetti Carbonara.

Are you a good or a bad drunk?

Don't ask me!

Tell us your funniest story from a drunken night out...

I can't remember it, but it was definitely funny (then, less so now).

If you could be one historical figure who would you be and why?

Probably Ghandi, because of all the dinner parties with other dead historical figures.

Who would you most like to have a pint with from history and why?

David Bowie, obviously.

If you could go back in time to any moment in history when would it be and why?

To question 1, and change it to Spaghetti Bolognese.
