Give us one reason why advertising is still brilliant in 2019.

At Christmas, a million people petitioned to get "Rang-tan" on air. If it’s good enough, people still care.

In 2019, I'll be using blockchain to…

Commission retina-searingly bright and wildly patterned dresses on WeChat.

You decide to launch a brand. What is it called and what does it do?

Eagle Eye Mackay: a spelling, grammar and spacing checker with a 100% success rate. (I abhor typos more than most.)

When was the last time you felt professionally vulnerable and why?

Two seconds before my interview on BBC News. It felt a seriously grown-up and very live stage upon which to say something silly. I’m glad to say I didn’t.

Who is your favourite Instagrammer and why?

Alexmayhughes. Her Simpsons obsession is strong and her glass-and-gold art beautiful.

You win the lottery. What would you do first?

Take everyone I love to the Rugby World Cup in Japan.

Name one thing you think is criminally overrated by industry, society or culture and explain why.

The suntan. Having never been able to get one, I’m troubled by the continued allure of dead skin for us all (myself included).

Name one thing you think is criminally underrated by industry, society or culture and explain why.

Honesty. Everyone can handle the truth if it's delivered with compassion.

What is your go-to boxset binge?

Whatever Chris Gallery last recommended.

Enough's enough: it's time the next Doctor Who was…

Clifford Samuel.

If you weren't you, who in the industry would you like to be?

Sheryl Marjoram, upon whom I have a serious girl crush. She’s compassionate, fierce and exuberant – and boy, what I’d give to play dress-up in her wardrobe.
