Johnny Vegas: 'Why I like pottery'

A campaign to challenge people to get creative has been launched by the BBC and major cultural organisations. It is being backed by stars including Johnny Vegas and is described as a year-long celebration of British arts, culture and creativity.

Actor Johnny Vegas told BBC Breakfast he likes to relax with pottery and says he finds it therapeutic and beneficial.

"When I'm not trying to act, or am ranting at people on stage, I like to pot. For somebody that was struggling at school it literally saved me. It gave me a real belief in my ideas," he said.
