Recently, Dear took a moment to tell realscreen a few things people wouldn’t know about him, including how working in the television industry led him to buy a bizarre pet.

1. I started in the BBC as a secretary.

2. I once paid a Sardinian farmer £30 for two donkeys for a commercial shoot. I thought I was renting them – in fact I had bought them.

3. I speak Italian with a Roman (and foul-mouthed) accent.
