Well Sunday with a hungover isn’t that unusual but always nice to see Tom Rosenthal on TV, so thought I would share him with you all.
Rosenthal was born in Hammersmith, London, the son of Christine "Chrissy" (Smith), a former Newsnight producer, and Jim Rosenthal, a television sports presenter. One of his paternal great-grandfathers was German-born physician and writer Oscar Levy. Tom Rosenthal is of Jewish heritage on his father's side. In 2011, he stated, "I get called a Jewish comedian and I'm totally fine with that, but I can't really inform either of the performances I've done this year with a Jewish background. But I have learnt a lot about the culture and it has given me great pride to do so. It is an amazing culture to learn about."
After attending Reading Blue Coat School, he studied philosophy at King's College London and has done voice-over work for Comedy Central and other clients in the film and television industry. In 2011, he was cast as one of the main characters in the Channel 4 sitcom, Friday Night Dinner, along with Simon Bird.
He is an avid Arsenal F.C. fan and has appeared on Playback Media podcast "Footballistically Arsenal" alongside Boyd Hilton, Jack Whitehall and Dan Baldwin, in which Rosenthal spoke about smoking a discarded cigarette in the Nou Camp. He often eats and discusses food while appearing on the podcast.
He is a fanatical collector of vintage Subbuteo figures, and was once UK Under 14s champion of the game four years running. Rosenthal has been diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder.

'EastEnders' newcomer David Witts was so nervous about kissing co-star Hetti Bywater he ate a packet of extra strong mints first.
David's character Joey Branning enjoyed a snog with Lucy Beale (Hetti) after saving her from his threatening father Derek and although he really enjoys working with the 17-year-old actress, David admitted the on screen clinch left him panicked.
He explained to The Sun newspaper: ''Everyone says you must love the kissing scenes but it is hard work. It's just part and parcel of the job and you'd be a bit of a twit if you got a cheap thrill out of it.
''I will admit I keep Trebor Extra Strong mints on me just in case. I always have mints before a kissing scene, it's only polite, you don't want people saying bad things about you.
''Hetti is great. She's a very talented actress. She's only 17 but she's acting well beyond her years. It's been a real pleasure, she is great to work with.'' Along with kissing Lucy, Joey also punched his father Derek (Terence Beesley) upon arrival in Albert Square and David had reservations about filming the scene. He said: ''I was absolutely bricking it when I came to my first scene. Luckily I didn't actually hit him. But I really went for it. With scenes like that you've got to be 'in' the scene because if you're not it's going to look a bit fake.''

When he was cast as a stripper in new film Magic Mike, Alex Pettyfer decided to beef up. But it appears the young Englishman went a bit too overboard with his training with producers telling him he was too big. In a new interview with Men's Health UK, the Stormbreaker star revealed he put on 27lbs (12kg) after hitting the gym, but was told to lose some of it to play novice stripper Adam.
The 22-year-old tells the new issue of Men's Health UK magazine: 'I put on a bit of weight for this film. I started off at 169lb (77kg) and went up to 196lb (88kg). 'They told me I was too big, so in the end I had to take it back down to 185lb (84kg).'
With Magic Mike being filmed last autumn, Alex hasn't had to worry about his beefed physique and admitted he is now taking a break after such intensive training.
He said: 'When you eat and train as a sportsman I found it very enjoyable.
'But at the same time, it was hard, particularly at the start and I still remember not wanting to be in the gym. That’s why I don’t want to train at the moment.'
Despite being only 22, Alex has already started his own production company and is hoping to become a film director.
He explained: 'I’m very ambitious. I live in reality but I have dreams I want to fulfil – I want to be a director, and I’ve already started my own production company. But I also have a measure of success that I keep to myself. It’s something very personal to me.'
When looking for inspiration when making life decisions, Alex admits his father Richard and the late Paul Newman are his idols.
He said: 'My dad’s one of my biggest heroes. I also think Paul Newman’s an inspiration. I know a lot of people say that, but I love that he’s a great role model and a humanitarian. I admire people who don’t necessarily want to change the world, but try to make it a better environment.'

Emmerdale newcomer Kurtis Stacey has hinted that fans will see a different side to his character Alex Moss if he ever begins a serious relationship.
Stacey joined the Yorkshire drama earlier this year as a new farmhand at the Butlers.
Since his arrival in the village Alex has developed a reputation as a womaniser by seducing both Hannah Barton and Victoria Sugden.
Speaking at the British Soap Awards, Stacey told Digital Spy: "I'm not sure if I can tell you who's next, but she's a bit of a naughty girl, I'll let you know that - she's a bit of a naughty one!
"And I'm not too sure, it could be anyone with Alex. Alex is just waiting for the next woman or girl, whoever turns up, he's after them."
Asked if he could ever see his character becoming a one-woman man, Kurtis said: "I hope so, I hope he does.
"I think Alex has got it in him but he's got to meet the right woman. He's got to meet a woman that's got a backbone, a woman that can sort him out."
He added: "If he's in a relationship, maybe he'll be different.
"You'll have to see him in a relationship and then you'll know he's not a bad guy, he's a good guy."

Chris Fountain has insisted that his Coronation Street character Tommy Duckworth will not be a villain.
The former Hollyoaks actor was cast in the part late last year, following in the footsteps of Darryl Edwards and Joseph Aston, who portrayed the younger versions of the character.
As Tommy's father is bad boy Terry Duckworth, fans have speculated over whether the Weatherfield returnee could take after his dad.
However, in an interview with Soaplife, Fountain explained: "He is the son of Terry Duckworth but I don't think he's going to be as bad a character.
"He's more of a loveable rogue. He could be seen as quite smug and arrogant, but he's very charming. A real Jack the lad probably describes him best."
The star also confirmed reports that Tommy has an eye for the ladies, but added: "He doesn't make a good start. He tries it on with Sophie then with Sian. Later he sees them together and realises they're lesbians. But it's Tina who catches his eye."
Fountain makes his Coronation Street debut on March 28.
