Hello and welcome to The One Show with Angela Scanlon.
Tonight we'd like to show you something that is so rare nowadays -
we had great difficulty in tracking one down.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this is a courgette! Very, very special at the
moment. As you may know, the UK has been hit by a courgette shortage.
Cold weather in Spain and Italy has meant they have been disappearing
from the shelves so we are in luck it is awful! My spiraliser has not
been used in weeks! How are you guys coping? I have got some in my
fridge. It is danger in Bakewell and Frank Skinner! I would not even have
recognised that as a courgette. I think it is borderline cucumber. It
is on the way to being a marrow. I like to think we all are! You can
use a marrow instead because they are plentiful. When there is a
shortage it is surprisingly what lengths people go to. If you fancy a
nibble, I will leave it there. If the courgette disappeared, I would
not mind massively. I like a courgette. We will talk about your
latest project, Portrait Artist Of The Year later. And with that in
mind, we have a very talented audience here. The idea is they will
be painting a celebrity and you have to guess who the celebrity is a bit
later on. I tell you what, it is amazing the talent. Attention to
detail, we like that. Speaking of portraits, this is the first
portrait painted of Donald Trump since he was elected. And this week
Madame Tussaud's also unveiled their first waxwork of him with a
hairstyle instructed of, wait for it, 25,000 yaik hairs. Look how long
he wears his ties. It is extraordinary. Now here are five
Brits and one car who have a special relationship with the incoming
president. I have a special car, Donald Trump's
Cadillac. It was designed by Donald Trump in 1988. This car has a drinks
cabinet. It pipes the drinks from the boot back into the car. There is
an in-built safe, a paper shredder and a mobile phone. It is an office
on wheels. Now Donald Trump is president, it does not make any
difference to me, it is still my Cadillac. My name is Michael Powell.
I am at the geographer. In 1986I photographed Donald Trump for the
Times newspaper. -- I am a photographer. People tend to look
better when you put the light on the same side as the parting of the
hair. Donald Trump has three. This is the shot I took. I'd tried to get
him smiling. He took that as a challenge and suggested I told him a
joke. Make me laugh, and I got it. It is a nice shot. You don't see
many pictures of him smiling like that.
My name is Rob Edwards. I have been following Trump for many years in
Scotland and have had a few uncomfortable encounters. He has
done lots of controversial things in Scotland. He proposed a golf course
which every environmental group opposed but then he got the go-ahead
from the Scottish Government. The few times I have interacted with him
he has been very rude. He is offensive. He believes journalists,
he believes environmentalists and he bullies residents who oppose him. I
am a resident on the estate in Aberdeenshire and by Donald Trump.
He has tried to throw us out of our homes. He has had a two line is cut,
our phone lines cut and built a fence around my house. He sent me a
bill for half the cost of the fence and is still doing everything he
possibly can to make us unwelcome on our own property. My name is Gareth.
I wrote to Donald Trump when I was 17 years of age asking him for a
job. I received a letter from the Trump Tower. They were going to keep
my raise a file. When I first started in sales, Donald Trump's
book was one of the books we all had to read. From that day I realised he
was very successful in his image and how he portrayed himself and I
wanted to replicate Donald Trump. I'm filled full of foreboding about
a Trump presidency because if you look at the way he has treated
Scotland and the way he has treated Scotland's environment, which is
basically to trash it, the risk is he will do that to the US and to the
world. I remember when Donald Reagan -- Ronald Reagan was voted in there
was probably equal concern in this country about him being in that job.
I think any world leader really has to be judged on the whole term. The
thought of this man being the president from Friday onwards is
actually quite scary. It is like a bad dream. You almost hope it will
not happen but you know it will anyway. I recently sent a card of
congratulations in his new job saying congratulations on his race
to the top. As he believes in his country, so do I.
Whatever your views, it does all start tomorrow. Tommy Sandusky is
here with the schedule. When does it all start and where can we watch it
-- Tommy Sand do. From 4pm here we can watch the coverage and then from
4:30pm there will be some music and speeches. 5pm our time is when he
takes the oath of office. That is when he will do the eyeful release
where top old the Constitution and all that. Then after that, there
will be lunch and a review of the armed services. Ben Moore speeches
and he will do the walk. He and Mike Pence the vice president will do the
walk from the Capitol building down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White
House. A big parade will follow. Then there are inaugural balls. He
says he will attend at least three of them, maybe more. But he cannot
party too hard because the next day he has an national prayer service at
the Washington National Cathedral and then he gets down to work. It
all begins the next morning. Frank is speechless! He always looks like
he is winging it. I basically disagree with what he stands for but
he is comedy gold. I will be watching tomorrow live. Keep comedy
live. Honestly, I find him endlessly hilarious. Even if he blows up the
entire planet, I think there will be lots of laughs on the way! Lets hope
that doesn't happen. There are lots of stories since the very beginning
but you have some great inauguration stories through the ages. I love and
inauguration anecdote! Which President was in possession of just
one tooth in his mouth when he was inaugurated? Jefferson? No, it was
not. It was George Washington. He kept his mouth shut! Not smiling for
that reason. He had dentures made of human teeth, animal teeth, ivory and
even lead. What kind of animal teeth are those? There was a tragic
incident off the back of the inauguration. On President was
killed by his own inauguration. William Henry Harrison delivered the
longest inauguration speech. One hour 45 minutes out in a snowstorm.
This is back in 1841. He didn't have a coat or a hat, caught pneumonia
and died a month later. He had the longest ever in operation speech and
the shortest time ever served as president. When your mother tells
you to wear a coat, where your coat! It is the perfect death for a
politician talking yourself to death! Do you think history might
repeat itself? He is very well insulated and that is why he has two
wear fake tan, he has constructed a canopy that the sun never gets to!
There was one president who was sworn in four times? Barack Obama.
The first time he was sworn in they missed the words upside for safety's
sake they did it again the next day. Then for his second term when he was
re-elected, it fell on the 20th of January, his oath of office and that
was a Sunday. So they did a small ceremony then and they really did it
for a televised ceremony on the Monday. So he got four oaths of
office for the price of two. He got a deal out of it.
Tommy, thank you. Imagine if you were given the opportunity to design
your very own village? What would it look like? Would it be like
Ambridge? It would look like Midsummer Murders. One designer has
been given the challenge and Lucy has been to inspect his plans.
30-year-old married dad of two Jamie Carter is looking to buy his first
family home. We have been renting for two years and desperate to get
on the housing ladder. And Heather cannot afford a deposit. I will be
saving for about 20 years. But could there now be a solution for
first-time buyers up and down the country? It might look like I am
standing in the middle of an empty field but this is the site of a
brand-new housing concept and on the government hopes might be the answer
to the housing shortage. The garden village. This site here in Cheshire
is just one of 14 proposed garden villages across England. So what
exactly are they? If you picture of traditional village then at first
glance you would not be far off. There is no set model. But a garden
village has to be self-contained and they must have their own essentials
like shops, transport, schools and even their own GPS macro. Sounds
great but will the reality live up to that and will it truly help
first-time buyers to get on the property ladder? We are going to
find out. The government is trying hard to attract first-time buyers.
Not only are they pumping in ?6 million, under a new scheme for
buyers aged 25 to 40 there could be a 25% discount. I am taking Heather
and Jamie to the site in Cheshire to see if they could ever be tempted
into signing up. What would it mean to you to own your own place? I
would see it as security for my future as much as anything else and
for my children. Putting money into something which is yours. When you
are renting it is effectively dead money. I'm going to meet designer
Wayne Hemingway. He has been commissioned to design the village
and has brought along some early designs. Welcome to my office! Thank
you! This is just a field. How do you design a garden village from
scratch? This should fit around 1600 homes so around 4000 people which is
a nice decent community. There will be a school, cafes and shops. There
will be a sports field and places to walk your dog. There will be access
to the station and to get your car onto the main roads. Will there be a
GP surgery? Yes. Will they be in Auckland? If there are any milkmen
around here I'm sure they will want to deliver milk. -- will they'll be
and not men? You also get to have a say in how it looks. What would you
be interested in creating here if you moved? Basically creating a safe
environment for my children to grow up in. You want to be part of the
community, not just to have a home. How do you make this village appeal
to all? You will never make everybody happy but the people we
have in front of us are the people we should be helping. That is my
aim. But not everyone is in favour of the garden village plan. Urban
designer David Rutledge is sceptical. They should not be built
in the middle of nowhere. They will not have public transport and shops.
When you do a survey you find people are positive about the idea of
garden villages but they are negative about the idea of housing
developments. It is a badge to sell things which otherwise would be
unsuitable. There is no easy solution. We have to do something
about it, we need homes. Sir how will the local council are sure that
this new development works for everybody? I put this suggestion to
councillor Jamie McRae? This is not just on housing estate, it is a
place and a community. The design code will ensure the local community
facilities are built within the garden village, such as primary
schools and a real village centre. Would a new home in a garden village
work for our prospective buyers? For the recreational facilities put in
place, I cannot see why it would not be a great place to bring my family
up. It ticks a lot of boxes, I would have involvement in the development
and it is sustainable. I would be interested. Could be years before
this site is up and running. It remains to be seen if they garden
village is just a pretty name for a housing development or the blueprint
for the perfect place to live and bring up your children.
The red ones are the villages, and the towns in blue, over 10,000
homes. You are very pro-. I am, I think it is a wonderful idea. That
they are entities in themselves, not just add-ons to sprawl. A complete
identity of their own, they will have a vigorous young architects
designing interesting homes. The architecture has to be right. It
really could be like the prize-winning hamster Garden suburb,
now a legendary achievement in the garden village movement. --
Hampstead Garden suburb. There is an old airfield being used. They are
being very strategic about the places they are choosing. If I were
a young family, I would be in there. Terrific. They will believe every
morning presumably and work somewhere else? The idea is a
community there with everything you would need. Usually everyone goes to
the nearest town or city to work. It's changing, Frank. People work
from home a lot. It will evolve as you get the professionals there,
they will want to set up work. There will be schools and offices, a
community. It is very hard to create a community, but when you do it
successfully, everyone really enjoys it. We have won tonight here, I
feel. We could talk about this for ever, but we are here to talk about
you guys and your series back again, the Portrait Artist Of The Year.
Let's take a look. Over the next eight weeks, some of
the most talented artists from Britain and Ireland are showcasing
their talents. I've been constantly painting in my head. Last night I
couldn't sleep, I was just dreaming painting. In front of the public,
they will have just four Alistair paid the portraits of some very
famous faces. -- four hours to paint the portraits. How does it feel? I
will do this a lot. Do you want to look noble, interesting, quirky? Are
you taking notes? That would be fantastic! I for 1am a big fan of
the Portrait Artist Of The Year. -- Ivor one and a big fan. Give us an
idea of how the artists progress. It began a few months back, 1500 people
sent in self portraits. We have judges who narrowed it down to 54.
They are split into heaps, they paint a celebrity each every week.
There is a winner every week. -- hits. There is a semifinal and a
final, and the winner gets a ?10,000 commission to paint Graham Norton,
and that goes into the National Gallery of Ireland. They have gone
from optimistically sending in a painting to being on the wall of the
National Gallery of Ireland, quite a prize. Amazing. They start with
self-portrait is but then they paint under quite a bit of pressure. Are
the celebrity is ever upset with the portrayal? If they are, they are
very good at disguising it. A lot of them are actors, so if they don't
like it, they give a good performance. They enjoy it, they
enter into the spirit, they would not have come otherwise. They are
very good at acting steel, behaving very well. Whereas some people,
Adrian Chiles was very jumpy, wasn't he? Very twitchy. If we may mention
him on this hallowed Soper, he was like a man in chains. -- hallowed
sofa. He said, can you walk with me, I have to get outside? It was like
taking a bear out of the circus. Others get very stiff. The actresses
stand up and stretch. I always think that is a marvellous shot, they
really stretch out like Panthers to get the shape. All the different
styles of work. The different artists can use any kind of medium
they want. Embroidery... If you people have found stuff in skips and
painted on it. Chunks of metal, old doors. Knitting. As long as it works
and makes a good portrait, you know. I guess they take you by surprise.
Do you have a favourite medium these days, are you happy to go with the
flow? He is learning. Are you learning to paint? Having done the
show, I have been doing evening classes. Watching someone close up,
standing in front of a blank canvas and in a few hours turn it into
something beautiful is pretty amazing. You have sat and had a
portrait done, Joan. We had a celebratory opening, a launch, and
as a surprise to me, I was asked to sit for a portrait painted by one of
our early winners, who is really good. Christopher. He was there and
within two hours, he painted this portrait. That was quite something.
I had the experience of sitting still for two hours. It's
exceptional in my life to have two hours, sitting still. I recommend
it. It's very therapeutic. I felt wonderful, it entered my head. A
great New year's resolution... Sitting still! I might try it right
now! Can you carry on? Portrait Artist Of The Year starts
next Tuesday at 8pm on Sky Arts. Our audience have been painting for
most of the afternoon, for about an hour, before we came on air. They
will be revealing their work and you have to guess the celebrity.
Terrific. It's a brave man who would agree to paint the portrait of
someone who has been a 19 times world boxing champion. Thankfully
our One Show artist Adbanji was up for it, and so was Chris Eubank, and
it's not very often he hits the canvas! As an artist, I love the
time it takes to paint a portrait, several hours in a sitting can
reveal a lot about someone. Sitting for me today is former boxer Chris
Eubank. He was unbeaten for ten years, 43 fights, and was a 19 time
world champion. I have been locked up in secure units, assessment
centres, foster homes. I have been beaten up. For every fight I won, I
lost four. All the mistakes made it so that when I fought Nigel Benn for
the World Championship, I did not lose to that man, because I had made
enough mistakes. I made champion of the world through force. So
basically, you almost failed your way to success? Yes, I failed my way
to success. For some, he has become synonymous not with spot but his
eccentric dress sense, flamboyant behaviour and intellectual
posturing. Do you like the limelight? No. What don't you like
about it? I love it! Absolute love. I am the best. This wasn't given to
me. But when you spend maybe 20 years being the anti-hero, for no
reason, when you have been a very gentle, caring person. Let's say I
was arrogant, am I not supposed to be? Isn't it OK to be arrogant as a
fighter? There is a swagger to it. There is, you need to project
confidence. His style divides opinion, with his outfits topping
both best and worst dressed lists. Do you know how many times I have
been out in the public domain wearing absolutely ridiculous
clothes? Many times. In order to get it perfect, I had to make mistakes.
So I have been laughed at. When you are born into the world and
unattractive man, you try to make up for it in one way or another. This
is like a child, don't look at my face, check the monocle and the
shoes and the teeth. To me, it's like a work in progress. It's
getting better and better. How do you marry this flamboyant essence of
fashion with the view of you being a boxer? It is all an act. In reality,
the boxing is real, and there is an act. I am not Telegraphing. Try
again... I walked to the corner as though I have won... Flamboyance. At
the end of the fight, in a close fight, the judges say, you know
what, he just seems to have a bit of that... You are constantly going
back and forth between reality and an act. That's what I'm seeing. Yes.
Nothing and no one is an original. So if that's true, you should steal,
plagiarise, copy, impersonate... They call me the great pretender.
And I am privileged to be called the great pretender. I embrace it,
because we are all acting. And look at what it's made me, a 19 time
world champion. Not bad for a Peckham boy. Not bad at all!
Using the time Chris has spent sitting for me, I am painting him a
portrait of the way I see him. Three weeks later, it's complete, and
Chris returns to my studio. Goodness, that is good! My goodness.
I'm so glad I came today like this. Because it really shows a contrast
between something which is really theatrical as opposed to... Like
that! Normal, yeah. It is you with a background blazed in this colourful
poetry, and you remind me of an African king. So, boom! Thank you!
And of course you know Adbanji. He was on Landscape artist of the year.
That was a brilliant portrait. It is time to see some brilliant
portraits. Our audience have been painting this afternoon. This is
lorry. Any idea who she has painted? Unavoidably, Theresa May. Well done!
I thought she was just holding up a mirror!
It's a good Theresa May. Are you a student art? I studied painting at
Camberwell. The next one. This is Caroline. The
slight giveaway is the strap over the shoulder. That's got to be Andy
Murray, hasn't it? It's worth pointing out these were
not the best ones. We tried to make it difficult by picking ones you
would not get. Well done. Any thoughts on this handsome devil?
I think this is terrific but I can't get who it is. I like it, I love the
jacket. I hope it's not me. It is! Joan and Frank, you get to pick one
each to bring home. Out of all of those? Is that Barack Obama? Yes, it
is. You have forgotten him already! Obviously I want one of me. Is there
two of me? Thank you to everyone. Thank you to Joan and Frank.
Portrait Artist Of The Year starts on Tuesday at eight o'clock on Sky
Arts. Room 101 is on at 8.30pm
tomorrow on BBC One. Fay Ripley and I will be here
tomorrow talking to Robson Greene. And there'll be music from Pete Tong
and the Heritage Orchestra. They want me to write and
produce - for a boy band. Oh. Your album's
getting five-star reviews, I mean, you must feel like
you're dreaming. Well, well.
If it isn't Baloo and Mowgli.
