TOP comedian Paul Whitehouse has revealed to Angler’s Mail the secrets of his recent Aviva car insurance adverts featuring Brummie angler Ollie.

Mad keen angler Paul has one advert out at the moment featuring Ollie game fishing and another one out soon river carping, as we reported two issues ago.

In an amusing interview, Fast Show star Paul told the Mail: ‘I’ve only dropped angling into comedy a tiny bit as along with the mighty Spurs I love it so much and it feels odd to do it.

‘I’ve done quite a few characters for Aviva and when they suggested an angler I thought why not and went along with it.’
