"It seems to be getting better. Every now and then we'll come up with something really good - the tried-and-tested format of Downton Abbey goes on and The Hour is very well made," Dance said.

"Secret State was pretty bloody good but we also turn out a load of s**t - I'm thinking principally of the worst of reality TV, which is mind-numbing."

Asked if he ever watched such shows, he added: "Only Gareth Malone's choir shows - his love of what he does and his enthusiasm is infectious and he finds great talent in people who probably think they didn't have any.

"That's the only one I watch. I think the rest is s***e."
