Sumal: "My mum will be happy to hear that."

2) What were you like growing up?

Sumal: "Annoying … That's why I'm so chilled out now."

Grado: "I was always outside playing. Football, wrestling up the park, games of chappy [chap door runaway] and prank-calling folk from the phone box. I used to call up the sexual health line and ask what a Femidom was."

3) Who did you have posters of on wall?

Grado: "Men in Lycra. Wrestlers."

Sumal: "Weird things like UFOs. I was into supernatural stuff. The Crow was my favourite film."

4) Childhood ambitions?

Grado: "To play for Rangers. Or to be a bus driver. That's still an unfulfilled ambition."

Sumal: "I wanted to be a pilot. But then I discovered I hate flying and I'm colour blind."

5) Proudest achievement?

Grado: "Getting an Irn Bru bottle made for me. A custom-made Grado bottle. I'm not going to drink it. I'll keep it on the mantelpiece at home."

Sumal: "Writing a play called How To Make a Killing in Bollywood with my friend Umar Ahmed in 2013. We took it to the Fringe and toured round the UK."

9) Which Scot Squad character would you love to team up with for a day?

Sumal: "Darren Connell as Bobby. But I don't think I could keep a straight face."

Grado: "Probably Darren as well."

10) Have you had any feedback from real life traffic cops?

Grado: "I was pulled over by the police about a headlight once and I think they were more interested in talking about the show. When they saw me they went: 'It's the traffic!'"
