"But the good news is we've been nominated. Breaking Dad has been nominated for a TV Choice Award, we've made the shortlist! And we've made the shortlist because I'm only 5 foot 6. However, it would be great if you could vote. I've spoken to Barney and he's shown me how to do it, I've put a link to TV Choice Awards on my bio page, whatever that means. It's all there on the bio. Link to bio? Degradable? I don't know. Anyway it's all there. Breaking Dad, make us winners, god bless you all stay safe."
