Stephen Mangan on the real Matt LeBlanc

9 May 2012 Last updated at 12:22 BST

Actor Stephen Mangan has told BBC Breakfast he expected his Episodes co-star Matt LeBlanc to be a "monster" but he insists Matt LeBlanc is "really nice".

Former Friends actor LeBlanc is back for a second season as himself in the TV series alongside Mangan and Tamsin Greig.

Mangan says it is hard to tell the actor apart from the character in the show, especially with the insights from former friends writer David Crane - who now writes for Episodes.
