Ten years after the end of 'Where are you, heart?', the presenter returns to television with 'Catch me if you can Celebrity', a contest that puts various celebrities to the test on Telemadrid.

Will you make it easy for me in the interview or will you be like Paulina Rubio? I always remember her as the woman who made me go through two very uncomfortable moments on set.

And look how difficult it is for me to feel uncomfortable with someone!

But she was a repeat offender.

So I'll make it easy for you.

What other character has given you a hard time? Bárbara Rey.

She is a magnificent guest, but there were times when she totally overwhelmed her and she gave great moments on television.

She asked the protagonist of 'Once upon a time in America' what she had done in all these years and she answered: "Go to bed early."

What has Jaime Cantizano done in this time? A lot of radio for a personal decision and it has already been one of the most successful of my life.

And about going to bed early, false.

The great drama of recent years has been discovering that not sleeping is a real tragedy.

I'm coming out of it. What does 'Catch me if you can Celebrity' have to have made you return to television? It's a contest and since 'Pasapalabra' I hadn't returned to a contest.

I went back to work with people I love and appreciate. Is the key to making a good program in the team? Always.

I am not a brilliant communicator, but if you had to look for a quality it would be that of having a nose for creating a team and getting the best out of each one of them.

It would be my great quality as a communicator.

Why do you say that you are not a brilliant communicator? Honestly, I see myself that way and today I still suffer a lot analyzing myself and discovering how I could have approached an interview on the radio.

I keep whipping myself.

My formula is naturalness.

I do not intend to get on a podium or be a reference to anything.

What would you do if your whole team stabbed you like they did to Pablo Casado? If my whole team starts stabbing me, the best thing is to take the exit door and not resist.

It is impossible to continue if you have the world against you.

Have you experienced that moment when the phone stops ringing? No.

Permanently in all these years I have had a job and I feel lucky.

If you don't appear on television, it seems that you don't exist.

The radio has given me great moments and enormous stability.

Have you rejected many television offers? Yes, it is also known.

I, at a certain moment, set out a path for myself.

I don't live to work.

I love my life and I love my work, but I try to balance everything.

What things have you not swallowed in this profession? The fundamental thing I did at a certain moment was not to follow the path that I was supposed to follow after having finished my stage on Antena 3. Everyone told me to continue on television even in another group.

It was clear to me that I was not going to continue with the same formula.

That's why I hit that radical break and went back to the radio.

What shows would you remove from television? I refuse to single out and remove shows.

Nowadays everyone tells you how you have to be as a citizen, as a progressive, as a conservative, as a heterosexual, as a homosexual, as a father... I refuse to be told how we have to behave and to point out or cross out programs.

We are going to talk about the critical sense of each of us and the ability to decide.

What has radio given you? It has made me grow and consolidate myself as a communicator.

When they ask me if I am a presenter or a journalist, the key word is communicator.

It has shown me much better than what television ever showed me.

The relationship with the person who follows you is much more intimate than on television.

After so many hours talking on the radio, the listener knows how you think about almost every issue.

It didn't sit well with Isabel Gemio that you replaced her on Onda Cero, right? [Laughs] Then it's true that she sent me a book she published and put a note telling me that I didn't have to be singled out as guilty .

I have a smooth relationship with her.

Do you miss your times in 'Where are you heart'? I'm not nostalgic at all.

I'm more into looking at what I'm going to do in the next two years than recreating myself in the previous stages.

It is true that 10 years have passed and they still ask me if I would return.

And he told them: "No, I'm on a totally different highway."

How did you manage to tame María Patiño, Gemma López or Jesús Mariñas? It was a very well-oiled machine.

I hardly had to act.

But yes, once I hit the occasional scream or heel, although you didn't see much.

You have to handle it with a hard and firm hand, but with a silk glove.

Would you feel comfortable presenting 'Sálvame', where many of your former collaborators are? What they do, they do very well.

Right now I don't see myself qualified to function in that gear.

Really, it's not heart.

It's a

reality show

and its protagonists are television characters.

The press of the heart as such has passed to a better life.

Has this type of press exceeded all limits? Not as many as some would like to see.

Far more dangerous boundaries are being crossed today in politics and economics than on television.

What are the evils of journalism? The precariousness of those who work in the media and that of the companies that make them falter in the face of power.

Is there too much ego in this profession? There is a lot of ego and that has caused a lot of damage.

The ego has self-destructed some colleagues.

Your live 'earth swallow me' moment... I've had many moments.

I have a problem on the radio because I mix names and surnames.

The last one was with María Galiana whom I called María Galiano.

And she a little harshly corrected me.

It is a huge flaw that I have, but it is part of my personality.

I'm going to ask you what they always ask mothers.

How does a single father reconcile? I'll admit that it has been very difficult and very complicated.

Earlier I was referring to lack of sleep.

In some moments I have come to bed and I have said: "Please, I can't do it anymore!".

I am sure that many fathers and mothers have ended the day thinking: "I can't take it anymore".

But the next morning it is as if you were renewed.

Much is said about the maternal instinct and very little about the paternal.

How would you describe it? Nothing is said about the paternal instinct, partly because of man himself for centuries.

I believe that this is changing, although much still needs to be done.

I am still a strange element, but society goes much faster than we think.

What is it that they never told you about fatherhood that has surprised you the most? They didn't tell me many things.

What has surprised me the most is the ability to give yourself to a dwarf as you have never given yourself to another person before.

And in a very pure way and without folds.

How do you bond more: walking the child or the dog? My dog ​​Duna has enormous success.

But does the bitch flirt or you? [Laughs] She's a good perch.

I have friends who are regulars at the park walking their dog because it is the best way to get a kick out of it.

Are you a helicopter or kite parent? Of those I let fly.

I have never tolerated being controlled.

I have been giving very few explanations and it would be contrary to my principles to act as a helicopter father.

There are many feminist women against surrogacy.

What would you tell them? A few years ago, when he had just become a father,

I ran into a very well-known communicator from this country on some stairs and she told me: "They are pushing me to be more forceful and I can't be because I have friends who have resorted to surrogacy and it has nothing to do with the arguments that are being used."

I would ask that they be informed and that they know the reality of thousands of Spanish families where respect is fundamental.

We have a relationship with the surrogate family that has nothing to do with what is told.

You have always given the image of being a perfect person.

Confess to me some defect. I'm discovering myself with fits of bad humor that don't do me any good.

They are not angry, but they are bad-tempered.

Maybe it's that I'm getting older and put up with fewer things.

Where have you had the best parties: in Madrid or in Jerez?

In Madrid, because the possibilities multiply.

What is your biggest temptation?

And at the same time it kills me: being a perfectionist.

The temptation to want everything perfect, regulated and established.

At the same time, it stresses me out.

Do we all have our black side and our closet? We all have a part that stays for us and that we don't want to take it out for a walk.

The key to failure is trying to please everyone, has it happened to you? It has certainly happened to me at a certain point in my life.

In the end, you discover that you don't have to explain yourself to anyone and that you have to accept that you can't please everyone.

What's the best advice you've ever been given? Never think this is going to last long.

There is nothing eternal and, on television, there is nothing that can go beyond 10 years.
