Publisher, author, broadcaster and film editor of the Radio Times (other listings magazines are also available). Collins filled in for Mark for three weeks when he was the presenter of Cling Film on Radio 1 - "one of the worst titles for any programme ever" - when he had a bad back. (This was presumably related to the famous Russian car journey).

Many years later, in July 2006, Collins became a stand-in for Mark on the Film Review Show, reviewing My Super Ex-Girlfriend, The Ant Bully and The Notorious Betty Page, with Phil Williams being the stand-in Simon. He then became a semi-regular stand-in for the next couple of years.

Collins has twice been unable to fully review a film due to having missed part of it. In 2008 he saw PS I Love You but the projector broke down three quarters of the way through, leading to audible sighs of relief from the assembled hacks. Then in 2009, Collins walked out of Crank 2 around 20 minutes in, during the scene when a number of strippers had their breast implants exploded by high-impact bullets. In doing so he missed a scene where The Stathe is on a game show with his mum being played by Geri Halliwell.

No, really.
