Ready, steady...COOK! (Part 2)

Did you know that Clare and I went on Ready Steady Cook? See here for my post on it from March this year after we filmed the show.

Funny story by the way - I walked into The Hotel Hollywood a week after we were on air, after just 30secs, a random woman came up to me and asked: "Were you on Ready Steady Cook last week...with your wife???". I told her that it was mostly true, and that she's welcome for me to sign an autograph.

Without wishing to over-self promote, I do recognise that there are a fair few people abroad who missed the show. Below are a few edited sections...a few things to note:

  • The host's propensity to touch me...for long......awkward...massagingly weird periods.
  • My innate ability to talk absolute shit. The magic of TV.
  • Clare's amazing talent for TV. She was terrific - and HOT! It was a shame her chef was so talkative...a lot of Clare didn't make the final cut.
  • My sister Amelia in the crowd. A Milky Way for the first person to post where she is sitting.
  • There's a little bit missing from the middle of the show...I'll try and get this up later.
And an extra special thanks must go out to Gerard - a good mate of mine who kindly recorded and rendered the show for Clare and I. Thanks mate - I owe you a rum.

That was unreal! Thanks to Chris for taping the episode.

I don't know where Bug was sitting but I could hear her laughing!

You two were awesome - well done.

Glad you enjoyed it! I think it's time for you and Cos to go on some Irish gameshow for couples...maybe the Irish version of Race Around the World, where the teams start at a pub and you don't make it any further because you're all too pissed and everyone bows out of the game.

Then you get drunk again and eat hot chips in celebration of the end of production.

I'm tired.
