Here's a cut & paste of the text of the Daily Mail interview:

Naturalist and TV star Bill Oddie, 69, takes our health quiz
By Sarah Ewing


CAN YOU RUN UP THE STAIRS?
Our house in Hampstead is three storeys, so I'm up and down all the time. Although I don't have a proper fitness regime, I try to walk everywhere, to the point when I get in trouble with my family for insisting on it.

EVER DIETED?
The only time when I've dieted quite -seriously was in the Seventies. In some photos I looked like Billy Bunter and in others like David Bowie!

HAD ANYTHING REMOVED?
I had a burst appendix and peritonitis in the Seventies. It was
excruciatingly painful and I was in hospital for two weeks.

ANY VICES?
Nibbles! Especially when I'm watching telly at night, and years back it'd also involve a scotch or a brandy.

WORST ILLNESS?
Ten years ago depression overwhelmed me. I was barely able to walk, talk, think or feel. I was given anti-depressants, although I'm not sure they've worked for me.

I've had five bad periods in the past ten years, lasting up to several months, and I completely lost 2009. Then more recently I was also -diagnosed as being bi-polar 2, which is when a major depressive period is followed by a hypomanic episode.

WOULD YOU HAVE PLASTIC SURGERY?
No, absolutely not. And I'd feel a bit uncomfortable if any lady I was with had it done.

ANY FAMILY AILMENTS?
Unfortunately, they've all been on the psychological side. Depression can run in families and the hereditary element is played down.

IS SEX IMPORTANT?
It starts that way, but if there isn't any, it can be an age thing. Given my medication, I don't function as well as I would like or used to.

CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT?
Besides my family, watching sport was the only thing that helped me through my depression last year.

EVER GOOGLED AN ILLNESS?
I've found the internet helpful since being diagnosed with depression. But check the site is reputable.

LIKE TO LIVE FOREVER?
Death and mortality are not something I'm comfortable considering; it scares the life out of me.
