‘This country is doomed – all we’ve got is badgers and Theresa May.’

‘Usher is definitely my boo.’

‘I don’t need to learn how to survive in the wilderness – I have 4G.’

‘Oh, why couldn’t I have been a contortionist?’

‘Right, I’m gonna watch “Call the Midwife” and calm the fuck down.’

‘If I’m having vegan fast food, I don’t want there to be any vegetables involved.’

‘Yeah, my mother’s definitely a communist.’

‘I’m icing my ankle but I don’t have any frozen peas, so I’m using a quinoa pouch.’

‘If I could give birth to puppies, I would.’

‘I’m not going to Hawaii. It’s the Tenerife of America.’
