Hello and welcome to

The One Show with Alex Jones.

0:00:150:00:17

And Matt Baker.

0:00:170:00:19

Loads of guests on the show tonight.

0:00:190:00:21

Let's check they're all here.

0:00:210:00:25

Lady Wilnelia Forsyth is with us -

she'll be sharing some memories

0:00:250:00:28

of her beloved husband Sir Bruce

ahead of a huge tribute

0:00:280:00:31

to him on Sunday.

0:00:310:00:36

We've got four mums on a mission -

my team-mates Amal, Debbie,

0:00:360:00:41

Jodie and Leigh.

0:00:410:00:46

Stop You have run training.

Around

Regents Park this afternoon.

I have.

0:00:460:00:53

Our guest tonight is not part of

your team.

Right.

You are going too

0:00:530:00:59

fast now.

I ain't bovvered! . I

ain't bovvered! .

Slow down, I'm not

0:00:590:01:04

joking.

I ain't bovvered! .

Please,

you've got to. No, please.

I ain't

0:01:040:01:11

bovvered! !

0:01:110:01:13

Please welcome Catherine Tate.

APPLAUSE

0:01:210:01:22

Welcome back.

Thank you.

That is

your inspiration.

It has. I'm

0:01:220:01:28

channelling that. Does that bear any

resemblance to Catherine Tate in

0:01:280:01:32

real-life?

That's a lot better than

I can do. Thats with a stunt double.

0:01:320:01:37

Was it?

NO! For goodness sake!

You

didn't do that speed at the end.

I

0:01:370:01:46

did.

Tremendous.

It's amazing the

power of my natural athleticism!

You

0:01:460:01:54

are not here to talk about your

character.

Sadly.

Serious

0:01:540:01:59

documentary on the British bulldog

we will get to it very shortly

0:01:590:02:02

snoochl yes.

We will.

0:02:020:02:06

It's a dodgy time to be opening

a restaurant with so many big

0:02:060:02:09

names including Prezzo,

Byron and Jamie's Italian all

0:02:090:02:11

closing branches on the high street.

0:02:110:02:12

Kevin's been to meet the staff

behind a venture that is planning

0:02:120:02:15

to buck the trend with a very

different way of doing business.

0:02:150:02:20

19-year-old Keenan has been out of

work for the last three months.

Job

0:02:200:02:24

opportunities are scarce around

here. There's not too many of them.

0:02:240:02:28

There's not many places opening up.

Sglm he lives in Solihull where the

0:02:280:02:34

unemployment rate is more than

double the national average and is

0:02:340:02:37

considered one of the most deprived

communities in the country. Right

0:02:370:02:41

now, I just want to get a job, save

up a good bit of money. Get myself a

0:02:410:02:46

place.

This could be the moment. His

future is about to go in a very

0:02:460:02:50

different direction. In just one

week's time the country's first

0:02:500:02:55

community-run traditional chippie

will open its doors. It will not

0:02:550:02:58

only give employment for the people

who live here, but all the money

0:02:580:03:01

made will be ploughed back into the

local area. Keenan is one of the

0:03:010:03:07

nine new who all live locally. Today

he is being trained up in

0:03:070:03:12

preparation for the grand opening.

I

was born just down the road from

0:03:120:03:16

here. I went to the school across

the road here.

Managing the team is

0:03:160:03:20

newly appointed local lad and former

industrial cleaner, Michel. Mitchel?

0:03:200:03:29

Has it changed much?

An awful lot.

It was quite run down around here.

0:03:290:03:34

They've knocked all the old shops

down and they have rebuilt these

0:03:340:03:38

shops.

The area has been part of a

£523 million regeneration plan. What

0:03:380:03:47

does it mean to you to be working

here?

It's turned my life around,

0:03:470:03:52

brilliantly. I mean, I'm so thankful

for the opportunity. My feet haven't

0:03:520:03:57

touched the ground.

I have to ask,

can I try one?

Yes.

They're not bad.

0:03:570:04:02

They're not bad. They're lovely. The

chip shop was the brain child of

0:04:020:04:10

Reverend Neil Roberts and is one of

social enterprises in the UK.

0:04:100:04:16

Someone has to open a fish and chip

shop. You see a national chain will

0:04:160:04:20

come in. Set it up and the profits

will go off the area. We thought,

0:04:200:04:25

why don't we run it.

The great thing

is that the money goes back into the

0:04:250:04:28

community. So what does that money

get spent on?

Pay the staff and pay

0:04:280:04:32

them properly. Pay our taxes. And

the profits after that are maybe

0:04:320:04:38

community events, support for

families. Opening more businesses

0:04:380:04:42

like community own brewery and look

at some housing project as well.

At

0:04:420:04:46

the chip shop, the new manager the

job is extra special. He will be

0:04:460:04:53

working alongside Emma who is

returning to work after seven years.

0:04:530:04:55

It's really important. It's a bit of

a life saver. It's going to help

0:04:550:05:02

with my kids growing up. We will be

able to provide for them.

Working

0:05:020:05:06

alongside your husband, how is that

going to be?

I don't know.

What

0:05:060:05:10

happens at home, stays at home.

Stays at home.

That's the answer.

0:05:100:05:17

Storm Emma meets the Beast from the

East and causes chaos across the UK.

0:05:170:05:21

The day of the grand opening and the

stormings have arrived.

Morning.

0:05:210:05:26

Freezing today, isn't it?

Despite

the snow, Mitchel is optimistic.

0:05:260:05:32

Hopefully people will come.

Not only

have people come, there is already a

0:05:320:05:35

queue waiting outside.

I can't wait.

Feeling hungry already.

After two

0:05:350:05:40

years of hard work, the doors can

finally open.

0:05:400:05:51

With all the excitement, Mitchel has

for got one crucial thing.

The

0:05:510:05:58

chips. I'm getting stressed.

The

chips are ready eventually and the

0:05:580:06:06

customers who have queued for over

an hour in the snow can finally have

0:06:060:06:10

their chippie tea.

Would you like

salt and vinegar.

Yes, please.

About

0:06:100:06:16

time something like this happened

around here, liven the place up a

0:06:160:06:20

bit and get everybody on board.

There is a a lot of people

0:06:200:06:23

interested in it. It's fantastic

idea.

It says a lot, doesn't it,

0:06:230:06:28

that we are queueing up in the snow

to get chips.

It really has opened

0:06:280:06:33

up a lot of doors for me. It's the

start of my employment life and

0:06:330:06:37

hopefully a good career. It's given

a few of my mates hope as well. If I

0:06:370:06:42

managed to get a job in this area,

anybody can.

All you need is some

0:06:420:06:49

curry sauce. Delicious.

You wouldn't

be down with that, would you?

Not

0:06:490:06:54

because it's curry. It's sauce.

Sauce has ingredients in it.

0:06:540:06:59

Catherine doesn't like anything with

ingredients!

What?

What are you

0:06:590:07:03

talking about? I like to look at

food and go that is a carrot I know

0:07:030:07:08

what is in that. A jug of sauce.

Could be anything!

Things that have

0:07:080:07:13

been mixed up and broken and poured.

Not for me!

That could be...

An

0:07:130:07:19

apple. I know what's in that.

Fair

enough.

You are here Catherine to

0:07:190:07:26

talk about saving the

BIG You have been

0:07:260:07:33

BIG You have been BROTHER:

BIG BROTHER: How much did you know

0:07:330:07:39

about the health issues before you

started this?

I didn't know. I am a

0:07:390:07:43

massive animal lover. I'm passionate

about animal welfare. I didn't know

0:07:430:07:50

the particular struggles and

challenges that some of the bulldogs

0:07:500:07:53

have. I didn't know. I was quite

shocked when I saw exactly what a

0:07:530:07:57

lot of them are going through.

Yes.

Breathing difficulties, joint

0:07:570:08:00

difficulties we are talking about.

Yeah. I certainly didn't know. I

0:08:000:08:04

think a lot of people don't know.

Really we did the programme to just

0:08:040:08:09

raise awareness. Just about how you

can be more responsible about where

0:08:090:08:16

you get your dog. Yeah, they do, a

lot of them suffer. It's because

0:08:160:08:23

over the years because of human

intervention we have shortened the

0:08:230:08:27

muzzle. So they have that squashed

up face that we really love and

0:08:270:08:30

think is really cute. But a lot of

the dogs struggle with that. A lot

0:08:300:08:36

of the time bulldogs, it has got a

lot better in recent years, but

0:08:360:08:41

bulldogs used to say when they were

at Crufts or dog shows you could

0:08:410:08:45

hear the bulldogs before you saw

them because of the breathing

0:08:450:08:48

difficulties. That has been mainly

eliminated out now because people

0:08:480:08:52

are more aware and breeders are much

more responsible.

The awareness is a

0:08:520:08:58

lot better.

The awareness is a lot

better. We are just trying to say

0:08:580:09:02

there is a long way to go.

Still a

long way to go. The lifespan of a

0:09:020:09:08

bulldog is about eight years whereas

average dogs it's about 12 in the

0:09:080:09:13

UK. People are spending a lot of

money trying it fix the problem? Are

0:09:130:09:19

they moving on. Is there a solution

to this in

There are things in

0:09:190:09:23

place, absolutely things in place to

help. One of them is to bring in...

0:09:230:09:30

To health test the dogs. It's not

compulsory, but it's really, really

0:09:300:09:34

useful because there are breeders

out there who health test the dogs.

0:09:340:09:37

The problem they have is the gene

pool is getting gradually so much

0:09:370:09:44

smaller to eliminate the problems.

It's such a tricky thing.

Looking

0:09:440:09:49

back to what the breed standard used

to be like when they were working

0:09:490:09:53

dogs. They had to be athletic. If

you think hundreds of years ago what

0:09:530:10:00

the dogs look like?

That is far

removed from the bulldog we know

0:10:000:10:03

now.

Definitely.

Over the years we

have made them what we feel is

0:10:030:10:11

cuter. The physical attributes we

look for dogs that make them cute,

0:10:110:10:19

the bulldogs, in some dogs that can

cause them problems. It's a real eye

0:10:190:10:22

opener. You have professionals in

this documentary who are saying,

0:10:220:10:27

it's like a call to arms. A lot of

professionals saying if we are not

0:10:270:10:32

careful this breed will not be fit

for life. It's a hard thing to hear.

0:10:320:10:39

It's a tricky thing because you meet

bulldog owners and they are... I

0:10:390:10:45

mean, every animal owner is devoted

to their dog. Bulldog owners love

0:10:450:10:49

their dogs so much.

Nobody is saying

they don't.

Never, this is not to

0:10:490:10:53

vilify. This is not to vilify people

in anyway. A lot of the time it's

0:10:530:11:00

admirable. A lot of the dog owners

they really have an undertaking to

0:11:000:11:04

take care of these dogs. They have

medicine cabinets. It's a ritual to

0:11:040:11:15

- for Bulger dog owners it's a

ritual to get them out-and-out in

0:11:150:11:18

the morning, like a baby.

0:11:180:11:22

You can see Catherine's programme

Saving the British Bulldog on 14th

0:11:220:11:25

of March at 9pm on BBC One

and at 10.45pm if you're

0:11:250:11:28

watching in Scotland.

0:11:280:11:29

How do you celebrate the life of one

of the UK's best loved entertainers?

0:11:290:11:32

With a spectacular

all-singing, all-dancing

0:11:320:11:34

variety show, that's how.

0:11:340:11:35

Carrie was backstage the night

the stars came out to pay

0:11:350:11:37

tribute to our friend,

the great Sir Bruce Forsyth And

0:11:370:11:40

didn't they do well.

0:11:400:11:48

Tonight at the London Palladium on

the eve of what would have been his

0:11:530:11:57

90th birthday, we remember one of

our favourites -- Brucie.

Mr

0:11:570:12:02

Saturday night television. Watching

the rest of the family laughing and

0:12:020:12:06

watching him. So you are enjoying

his programmes and also enjoying the

0:12:060:12:11

atmosphere that he created.

The

truth of the matter is the British

0:12:110:12:15

public were his audience. When he

came out they went Our era was wild.

0:12:150:12:20

Real showbusiness and we we went

into it because we wanted to

0:12:200:12:24

perform, not to be famous. There's a

difference. That's what Bruce loved.

0:12:240:12:28

He was a good friend to he m. He was

so kind. I met him, he's a huge

0:12:280:12:33

legend of showbusiness, I'm nobody.

He took me under his wing and

0:12:330:12:36

generous with with his time,

knowledge and wisdom.

He embodied

0:12:360:12:39

variety. A Jack of all trades,

master of all trades. He had a

0:12:390:12:45

remarkable ability to be very rude

to people and they didn't mind.

I

0:12:450:12:50

always loved that. We had a similar

jaw line. So you know.

You have the

0:12:500:12:53

chin.

For all I know he was relate

toed to me. Late -- related to me.

0:12:530:13:03

He was such a good friend.

I will

miss him. It's his birthday

0:13:030:13:07

tomorrow. Happy birthday Brucie.

I'm

backstage where preparations are

0:13:070:13:13

under way for tonight's performance.

There are singers, actors,

0:13:130:13:20

entertainers. Everything Bruce would

have held dear. Michael are you in

0:13:200:13:24

the bathroom? Good luck. Break a

leg. That is what you say in

0:13:240:13:28

showbusiness, isn't it

Michael Ball,

up you go. No warm-up. These die

0:13:280:13:33

guys, professionals!

0:13:330:13:39

guys, professionals!

Guided to the

right place. It's here.

Break a leg.

0:13:390:13:43

We are about to start. They are just

doing their last bit of tapping. I'm

0:13:430:13:48

off to watch from the wings.

0:13:480:13:55

STRICTLY THEME TUNE

As the night goes on the heart felt

0:14:010:14:07

tributes keep coming.

# You'll be there

0:14:070:14:14

# Between each line of pain and

glory. #

0:14:140:14:22

Good for you.

Yeah.

# You make me feel so young

0:14:220:14:24

# You make me feel there are songs

to be sung

0:14:240:14:28

# As to be wrong and a wonderful

thing... #

0:14:280:14:34

How was it?

What a lovely

atmosphere.

What is it like out

0:14:340:14:39

there?

It's great.

You look down and seeing loads of

0:14:390:14:42

familiar faces out there. Everyone

coming to do the same thing. This is

0:14:420:14:46

the stage to do it, London

Palladium, Brucie's second home.

The

0:14:460:14:50

fact they are asleep takes the

pressure off a little bit.

For the

0:14:500:14:54

grand finale, performing a song that

Brucie just loved, Dame Shirley

0:14:540:15:05

Bassey

# Being in love

0:15:050:15:06

#.

0:15:060:15:15

You'll be able to see the full

show on Sunday night.

0:15:230:15:25

Sir Bruce: A Celebration

is on at 9pm on BBC One.

0:15:250:15:28

We are joined by Sir Bruce's wife,

Lady Wilnelia Forsyth.

0:15:280:15:30

A warm welcome to the show.

0:15:300:15:34

Thank you.

That must have been

bittersweet in a way, a lovely

0:15:340:15:42

sensation to see all those people in

that room speaking so fondly about

0:15:420:15:46

Sir Bruce.

It was an incredible

night and as you can imagine very

0:15:460:15:52

emotional for us as a family, but it

is something we will treasure for

0:15:520:15:58

ever. There was so much love and

affection there. We had not only the

0:15:580:16:04

family, but our closest friends and

a lot of fans. The atmosphere was

0:16:040:16:10

incredible and I hope if people

watch the show on Sunday they get

0:16:100:16:15

that kind of atmosphere as well.

What is it like for you when you

0:16:150:16:21

hear the stories of people saying

how he touched their lives and how

0:16:210:16:24

he made them feel?

I have always

been extremely proud of him. Not

0:16:240:16:32

only because of his professional

achievement, but personally he was

0:16:320:16:40

an incredible husband and father.

One example I can give you, we have

0:16:400:16:46

so many letters from so many people

and one of the letters was this lady

0:16:460:16:51

who mentioned she lost her mother at

the beginning of the year and then

0:16:510:16:56

her father had Alzheimer's. But

somehow he did not remember her, but

0:16:560:17:01

somehow he remembered Bruce. All the

time the doctors used to come into

0:17:010:17:06

his room he used to make them say,

nice to see you, to see you nice. It

0:17:060:17:11

shows you that somehow he made

people laugh, like you. So glad you

0:17:110:17:19

are here.

I have an amazing memory

of Bruce and I was due to do a show

0:17:190:17:27

with him that he could not be there

in the end. I was really nervous

0:17:270:17:32

because I was doing a tribute to

Victoria Wood and Bruce sent his own

0:17:320:17:38

personal pianist to my home to

practice with me.

Really?

Yes he

0:17:380:17:43

did.

We used to love it, it was

always a highlight. We ended up

0:17:430:17:49

going through his routine at one

point. He was showing us what he did

0:17:490:17:56

in bed before breakfast. You were

married 34 years. What are your

0:17:560:18:01

memories of when you first met Sarah

Bruce?

What was your first

0:18:010:18:06

impression? I met him in 1980. I was

living in Paris and I was invited to

0:18:060:18:12

be on the Miss world competition as

a judge five years before I was Miss

0:18:120:18:18

world. We met and he was one of the

judges as well. I thought it was

0:18:180:18:23

very kind of him. He was making the

girls so relaxed and at ease, and he

0:18:230:18:31

asked one of them, what do you eat

at Christmas? It was a silly

0:18:310:18:37

question, but then I could see he

was so wonderful. After the

0:18:370:18:42

competition finished they had the

gala and we danced and we danced all

0:18:420:18:46

night and it took a bit of time for

him to ask me to dance. I had a

0:18:460:18:51

friend of mine, he thought it was my

boyfriend, and then after that he

0:18:510:18:56

asked me for a dance and I never

went back. One of the things that

0:18:560:19:00

were special that he told me when

the evening was finished coming he

0:19:000:19:03

kissed my hand and said goodbye and

said, by the way, I have got five

0:19:030:19:07

daughters. I thought, why is he

telling me that? Maybe he does not

0:19:070:19:14

want to see me again. But these

girls have been amazing in my life

0:19:140:19:20

and I want to wish them a wonderful

mother's day and to all the mothers

0:19:200:19:25

in England. They have been

incredible and they have been my

0:19:250:19:30

rock. It has been a difficult time

for all of us. But somehow we are

0:19:300:19:38

strongly together and I am so glad

to have them as part of my life.

0:19:380:19:44

Thank you so much for coming in and

we will watch on Sunday night.

Thank

0:19:440:19:50

you, and can I say quickly for the

people who are donating, thank you

0:19:500:19:55

for the donations and for married

fury and you can go to the website

0:19:550:20:02

and Puerto Rico is still struggling

in many ways and I know Bruce will

0:20:020:20:06

thank you as well.

Thank you for

coming in. We look forward to the

0:20:060:20:11

Sunday night celebration.

0:20:110:20:12

We look forward to the Sunday

night celebration.

0:20:120:20:14

Just four days until Alex sets off

on The Mother Of All Challenges -

0:20:140:20:17

a week of swimming, climbing,

cycling, caving and running

0:20:170:20:20

all to raise awareness for maternal

health and much needed money

0:20:200:20:24

for Sport Relief.

0:20:240:20:27

Thankfully I'm not alone -

time to meet my next

0:20:270:20:30

two "mothers in arms",

Amal And Debbie.

0:20:300:20:38

The mothers and I are facing a

difficult week of challengers, but I

0:20:380:20:42

know that together we can do it.

There is something really nice about

0:20:420:20:47

a team of people doing something as

opposed to an individual. They have

0:20:470:20:51

been training hard for the past few

weeks and today it is time for me to

0:20:510:20:56

acclimatise myself and braved the

cold waters. The challenge certainly

0:20:560:21:00

feels real now and I think anxiety

is building.

Today is the first time

0:21:000:21:06

we get to take a look at Alex and

make sure she is in the right

0:21:060:21:09

condition and the right place to

take on this monumental challenge.

0:21:090:21:13

It is difficult to swim because you

are breathless before you start. You

0:21:130:21:17

know it will be called, but it is

another level.

The one thing I know

0:21:170:21:22

is psychologically she is tough,

which is a great thing on a

0:21:220:21:26

challenge like this. Alex is quite a

bit behind the others. They started

0:21:260:21:31

a bit before her and they have been

absolutely tenacious.

0:21:310:21:41

absolutely tenacious.

We are going

to keep it light and fun. I hope no

0:21:410:21:44

one falls off. My name is Amal, I am

31 and I live with my husband and my

0:21:440:21:52

baby boy. John and I wanted a baby,

so getting pregnant was not a

0:21:520:21:59

surprise. What was surprising was

the degree to which it affected me

0:21:590:22:03

physically and then later mentally.

I felt like a different person. I

0:22:030:22:09

really expected that to lift at some

point during the pregnancy. But it

0:22:090:22:13

did not.

Amal's mood was affected by

her lack of energy in the pregnancy

0:22:130:22:20

and due to the position of the baby

she had to have an emergency forceps

0:22:200:22:24

delivery and this caused a long-term

injury.

Household tasks were

0:22:240:22:29

difficult for me. I found it

difficult picking him up. I realised

0:22:290:22:34

he was not happy, what I did not

realise was I had postnatal

0:22:340:22:39

depression. I was irritable, I was

not enjoying being a mother, I was

0:22:390:22:43

just doing it.

With the help of her

husband and family, Amal began to

0:22:430:22:49

feel more like herself and was able

to bond with her son.

I started with

0:22:490:22:54

a personal trainer, I met with the

women's health physiotherapist and

0:22:540:22:59

together they helped guide me. I

focused on getting back to exercise

0:22:590:23:04

and I think that is when I started

turning a corner in my

0:23:040:23:09

understanding.

Having lived with

that experience it inspired Amal to

0:23:090:23:13

volunteer herself for the challenge.

For me it marks that gap between a

0:23:130:23:18

relatively difficult period in my

life and a new hopeful, more able

0:23:180:23:24

era.

That is brilliant. What about

you, Debbie, why did you think this

0:23:240:23:30

is for you?

I am menopausal, what

can I say? You do random. But for me

0:23:300:23:38

it is almost like the end to my

recovery. My first two pregnancies

0:23:380:23:44

were fine and with baby number three

I suffered a placenta eruption. I

0:23:440:23:49

was rushed to the hospital,

emergency Caesarean, and she came

0:23:490:23:54

out and she was basically dead.

There was no heartbeat, she was not

0:23:540:23:58

breathing and she was like that for

19 minutes. But they managed to get

0:23:580:24:03

her going. I asked if there would be

quality of life? I was told there

0:24:030:24:09

would be some quality of life. She

is absolutely perfect. She is so

0:24:090:24:17

lucky.

I am so lucky. After a

difficult start with Ellie, a year

0:24:170:24:23

later Debbie had her fourth daughter

and it was a few months after this

0:24:230:24:26

birth that she found herself unable

to cope.

Everything seemed very dark

0:24:260:24:32

and they did not seem to be an end

to the darkness. I had a meltdown

0:24:320:24:36

and I knew I had to go see someone.

I was able to realise that where I

0:24:360:24:43

had been so super strong when Ellie

was born, you cannot carry on being

0:24:430:24:47

that strong for ever. Part of the

reason I want to do this challenge

0:24:470:24:54

is to raise awareness. So many

mothers out there are struggling. It

0:24:540:24:58

is OK to say, I am struggling. It is

going to be fun. 50 for goodness'

0:24:580:25:08

sake.

0:25:080:25:14

sake.

I just want to relish the fact

I have a healthy body, a healthy

0:25:140:25:18

mind.

I think together we are a

strong team. We have given birth, so

0:25:180:25:24

this is going to be a walk in the

park.

0:25:240:25:27

We are doing it!

APPLAUSE

0:25:270:25:31

She says. We will get to the team in

a second.

Now, the team. Welcome back.

Before

we start I have to say thank you so

0:26:130:26:20

much for sharing the story is so

honestly. It will resonate with so

0:26:200:26:24

many mothers out there which is the

point. You have already done a lot

0:26:240:26:29

in terms of that. But, yes, the

challenge still does lie ahead.

0:26:290:26:34

Let's recap. What are we doing? Open

water swimming in Loch Ness. We will

0:26:340:26:41

be cycling through the Lake

District.

0:26:410:26:50

Earlier on you said when you first

heard about it you thought it was a

0:26:510:26:55

nice day out.

I did.

That is what

comes from not reading the small

0:26:550:27:01

print. How are we feeling? We missed

a week of training because of the

0:27:010:27:08

snow and, Amal, you are ill.

How are

you now? I am fine now, but I would

0:27:080:27:14

not have been if I trained. I am

glad I had a few days off. I was hit

0:27:140:27:19

with a cold, it was bad.

You are not

taking your families with you and it

0:27:190:27:24

is tough because mother's day is

coming.

Yes, because we start on

0:27:240:27:31

mother's day. Physicality aside,

that is my biggest worry. Six days

0:27:310:27:35

is a long time to be away from

little Ted and your children as

0:27:350:27:40

well. Jodie, that is something that

worries you.

Yes, mother's day is a

0:27:400:27:47

nice event. I wake up and have

pancakes and coffee.

They make you

0:27:470:27:52

pancakes?

Yes, it is so nice. It is

a big deal for me and it is the

0:27:520:27:58

longest time I have been away from

my youngest. The oldest one is old

0:27:580:28:06

enough to have a conversation with

and they know about it, but the

0:28:060:28:10

youngest one does not. It will be

mentally really challenging.

We do

0:28:100:28:16

the swim on a Sunday. Your faces say

it all. Is that what you are most

0:28:160:28:20

worried about, Leigh?

Yes, it is

horrific for me. I have got out a

0:28:200:28:29

couple of times swimming in Loch

Lomond.

You are brave.

Stupid is

0:28:290:28:36

maybe a better word for it. Some

ladies do it for fun and swim in

0:28:360:28:40

their bathing costumes at this time

of the year. But I had the wet suit

0:28:400:28:44

on and it is still awful.

I will see

you on Saturday.

0:28:440:28:51

Sir Bruce: A Celebration
