Hello. It is 10 o'clock. Welcome to the show. We are light and joined
by Tim Vine. The Only Way Is Essex with Denise
Van Outen. And we will be crossing live to Silverstone to find out
what is happening ahead of the British Grand Prix. And we are all
going to be doing some cooking and Good morning. Roads to look forward
to. This is what everyone is talking about today. It is the last
ever edition of the News of the World. Some say that newsagents are
selling out. Others are try to get people to boycott it. The
interesting thing will be how many are actually sold. That is it. That
is the last ever edition. How was your holidays? The just had a few
days away. It was not a full-blown holiday. Was it warm? It was lovely
and warm. Three days in the sun with my better half. How did you
keep up with the cricket? And the women's football World Cup?
I thought Jamie was mucking around. The women? I sat and watched it. It
went to penalties. When it went to extra time, I thought it was like
watching the men's team. We were going to penalties and we thought,
we are going to lose on penalties. But they were amazing. Skilful,
talented. Yes, they are brilliant. In the last 15 years, the standard
of football, women's football in this country has gone right up
there. I could not believe it. done to the England netball team.
They got the bronze in the world netball championships in Singapore.
Well done to them. We have had an e-mail, Simon. Colin
says, why did you wear a hairnet when you have no hair? Look at that.
The Helmut and the jacket. That is a look. The thing is, it is not
just about your hair, it is about skin as well. Whether you are
authority challenged or not, you have to wear it. Is that true?

the food. But also so good skin. is not pleasant. We live in a
litigation culture. Who has died from hair? Apart from cats? You do
not want bits of skin or hair. Moving on, I do not want to know!
Do not forget, we have Denise Van Outen as a guest today. She has
been a singer, an actress, a DJ and now she is hosting a new TV show
where she uncovers Britain's future showbiz stars. She is slightly hung
over. She was out last night at Take That. It seems the whole world
went to take that last night. I missed it. I did not make it. I was
on my holidays. We have already had the jokes this
morning about my holidays. I am just ignoring you! I am just
carrying on. Are you good at Darts? Yes? Yes.
Do you want to play? I reckon I would be all right. If that was not
enough, our guests will be going to Silverstone to find out about the
latest developments ahead of the British Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton
is not a happy bunny at the moment. He is blaming a McLaren for putting
the wrong tyres on his car. He is 10th. What do you think about that?
Louise? Yes! And if you have any questions, send it to the website.
We want puns for Tim Vine. We will put to him and see if they are good
enough for his routine. We will see if he can finish them off. This
comes from hallowed turf, I put my wallet in the freezer the other day,
I needed some cold, hard cash. They have to be better than that to
make it onto the show! Get them coming in. The sun is side, the sky
is blue. What are we making? -- the scan is out. We are starting with
goat's cheese and a red pepper mousse. And a pickled shallots and
parsley salad. And then the main course is pork and fennel casserole.
It is quite a dry casserole. We have pork and fennel, chorizo,
olives and lemon. Delicious, lovely flavours. Desert is a cherry
chocolate pavlova. AB Tibbles season for cherries. It is a bumper
harvest. And save responds with smoked salmon and cream cheese --
savouries gongs. Very nice. All the recipes can be found on the website.
Here is what else is happening on today's show. The Torchwood team
are coming out of hiding. It is John Lennon and Yoko or no, the
United States years. -- Yoko Ono. And take a walk on the wild side
All that to come. What delights have we got this week? We are going
Tiki drastic. Some classic Tiki drinks. As drunk by Elvis Presley?
We have some that were in Blue Hawaii. It is such a shame he did
not growing a little moustache this week. It would look like he had
retired to Palm Springs. What are we making? We are making the goat's
cheese and red pepper mousse. The salad is flat-leaf parsley and the
shallots. The pumpernickel bread. For the pickle, red wine vinegar
and sugar. We have some roasted peppers and some creamy goat's
cheese. A warm pan, into their, or the chap in the sugar and the
vinegar and boil backed up. What figure is that? You can use any
vinegar. It is red wine vinegar. You can use cider vinegar. Why have
used red wine vinegar? It is the colour more than anything. They
work well together. Red wine, red I would say it is more than -- more
of a fashion statement. It looks pretty. I just want you to cook the
shallots. Do you want this knife? have got one.
Pound coin size? Yes, you do not want them too thin. We will boil
this up and it will become thick and syrupy. Did you have a nice
fooled on your holidays. Bass? -- nice food. I was watching your
holiday on the internet. It is hard when you go to the beach and
everything, you know that people are taking pictures? You kind of
know after the first day when 25 people ring you and tell you.
you become really self-conscious? You look great! You look fantastic.
Yes, but you do get self-conscious. It is pretty hard to relax. You
cannot fall asleep and start dribbling! When you get off the
sunbed, everyone's hair is slightly matted, a little bit of sun cream
that you have not rub in properly. Jamie always looks good. He is
looking good! We have roasted the peppers. And
then you roast them into one of UN. Put them into a plastic bag and
what happens is that all of the moisture and the compensation
separates the skin from the flesh. You can peel off all of the skin
like that. It does not matter if you get the odd bit on there.
Depict Lineker is boiling up. Simply check in all the shallots. -
- the pickling vinegar. Let it go completely cold. Is there anything
on these? Nothing. It is just literally the taste and the
sweetness of the peppers. Yes, the skin, you could use it with the
skin on. But it is not particularly nice. What you do not burn yourself.
What am I doing with these? I might not be here next week. I have
bought and European lottery ticket. Would you not come to work any
more? Yes! Just have a week off. I will be on holidays with you and
Jamie! What would you do, first thing if you won the lottery this
week? What would be the first thing you would buy? We always have this
discussion. I would probably put a huge amount into good charitable
funds and try and find world peace! Or maybe by a car! Go to a showroom
and buy a car. I think I would go to a shop and just by 20 soups.
Something like that. I do not know. I do not think I am going to win
because I only have wanted it. Apparently a few other people have
bought one as well. That is a shame! Get rid of the seeds out of
the middle of that and Popat in here together with my tarragon and
garlic, which is in the fridge. -- pop that in here. What is this?
This is the best way to keep tarragon, in the fridge, wrapped up,
or it could be that we forgot to take it out! Pop the goat's cheese
into there. Creamy goat's cheese is what you want because this is
really going to be a bit like a smoked salmon pate. The tarragon
goes in. Plenty of black pepper into there. A little pinch of salt
because there is plenty of salt in the cheese already. And then we
blend that until it is smooth. This is our new processor. I have
mentioned it before. I had been doing tennis training, as you know,
and I have invented a new thing. I cannot be bothered to keep getting
the tennis balls. It is on a string and tied to your wrist. What do you
think? I am going to get it patented. What do you think? It is
great. It can be on the same gadget item as when I have my shaky
process are. If we have a shaking platform, you can press that. That
is it done. That is our delicious pate in there. With your best
skills, school into there. For the salad, we have boiled up the
vinegar and the sugar. We have some fresh flat-leaf parsley. It has
that lovely after flavour. If you have something that is quite strong
like the pickle Andy goat's cheese, this will neutralise it to a
certain extent. It stops you having that horrible breath. It is that
same kind of thing with having parsley after garlic. The
pumpernickel bread. I love it. delicious malty flavour. It makes
you feel as if you are eating healthy bread -- healthy bread.

see it on every menu and I don't think it works with everything --

pumpernickel bread with a bit of... I have gone ahead. Get some pickled
shallot in their so there is a lovely bit of acidity as well and
the tarragon comes through. And the nuttiness of the bread. Lovely.
Absolutely delicious! If you set the pate then you get a different
flavour and texture as well. What Wilby beat -- will we be

show. She found and married Mr Wright, became a mother and climbed

our friend. I've got another package for you. Oh, thanks. Bake
meat cake and Piet, and hold me Welcome, Denise Van Outen. Did you
do your backing. I did. Today I have a sore head because I went to
take that last night. How was it? Amazing. The highlight was the end
of the show when Robbie and the band came together. First it was
odd because the boys came out and did their song from the Circus
album and Robbie dipped his set. Robbie did his own songs? Yes. You
kind of thought, where are the boys? Are they having a cup of tea.
But when they came together and did the old songs, it was incredible.
It was almost like three concerts in one? Yeah, it was great. I
thought they would never be able to top Circus but it was great.
was your favourite? Gary. Mark! He always has been the best. Who is
your favourite? It is a tough one. We talked with them for about five
months around Europe. All five of them? Yes. Where they on their way
downhill? They were at their peak. It brings back memories. It is our
age. Aren't they bigger now than they were then? No, they were huge
back then. It is the same, isn't it? I love for Gary because I did
they Kilimanjaro climb with him and he is the nicest guy I think I have
ever met. How was that? It was hard. I trained quite well so I felt as
prepared as I could beat. It was amazing to do. At the time, you
hate it but looking back, it was a brilliant thing to be part of.
you can hear sizzling, we are cooking pork. It is me, I am
sweating! How his mother that? is good. Exe it is 14 months old so
she is at an age where she is aware of everything and so much fun. But
it is hard work. The first few months came as a bit of a shock.
The lack of sleep. I went back to work quite early. How many weeks
after you had how did you go back to work? I did the trek took Machu
Picchu when she was four months old and I started Legally Blonde when I
got back. She was nearly five months old. So, doing shows every
night pretty much and looking after her during the day was hard work.
For how out, she didn't miss out on me because I was home all day but
when most mums have a glass of wine or have a cup of tea, I was on the
stage. I think it is great if you are passionate about something, you
should be entitled to go back to work when it suits you. I feel
lucky I do such great work and be part of something like Legally
Blonde which is such a great show. It is fun. But it was hard. The
biggest shock for me, because I was at home all day with Betsy, was not
being able to do the things you take for granted like going
shopping, clothes or supermarket shopping. Which is why I teamed up
with a three mobile to encourage mums to use smart phones and use
most - might do most of their shopping online. To make a man's
life easier? If you are a working mum, it doesn't mean... It is just
to make your life easier. We you do more shows? I try and do a West End
show once in a while but to have a break because it is physically
demanding. It is a big commitment. Probably I will wait a while. I
would like to do some TV in between. You do do everything. I am going
back to the ozone. I did A massive on a Saturday. Yeah sit was
definitely a Saturday morning programme. I remember coming on it.
And Broadway and everything. I am lucky to have a variety. What are
your best that? I can't answer that. You saw my husband the other night
because he is in Legally Blonde now and you asked me to score him on
stage now. I imagine that every time you go out there, you put a
different performance on, don't you? It depends on the audience, I
think. Honestly, the performance changes because you gauge an
audience. It is different. People asked if I get bored doing theatre
but you don't because it is a different audience and a different
vibe. I love it. He is great in it. He gave himself a 9 1/2! Tell us
about your new TV show, Born to Shine. It sounds interesting.

I am on the judging panel which I love doing. You have the freedom to
enjoy the show. I would love to be a judge. We are having guest judges.
I will do it but I have no skills. But you have an opinion. Would you
ever be and -- a contestant because I can see you on dancing on eyes?

you remember how everyone used to dance do that? Of course. People
used to wear dungarees. No one looked good in dungarees. Else did.
The news stories were Popes, Pounds Time for your photos. Make low.
Finally, we will get meat loaf to be a British dish rather than an
American one. Barbara has sent as Inside at night. She is not allowed
upstairs. Is she allowed on the sofa? No. The same as the children!
Then we have Georgie Wilkinson with a fine expression. They also made
the meat loaf. He thinks of himself as a bit of a Jamie Oliver. This is
sent in by Katie from Stockport. Good expressions on the male faces
today! Who is this one? I do not know. And I do not know what kind
of cat that is. It is care less. It would be like touching a chicken!
Chickens have the feathers! when they are plucked! If you want

make a pork and fennel casserole. You can hear it sizzling away. We
have some pork shoulder, some water to give it some depth. We have some
chickpeas, olives and parsley. We What we have done, we have sealed
off the port in the pan. We will get some colour on -- and some
flavour on this. I want some chorizo, which will give us some
depth of flavour. You need to peel the paper better off and cut it.
How thick? About thick pound coins. A standard measurement. What have
you cook this week? Apple. I have not got a lot. I think pork,
basically, goes with anything green, doesn't it? It goes with fennel, it
goes with Apple. Yes. I am trying to think, grapes. Asparagus. Lamb
and grapes would not work. Pork is great. You eat the entire pig. You
can eat everything. Whether it is the trotters, the cheeks,
everything gets eaten. It is quite delicious. Nice big chunks. But we
eat every part of every animal. really. Cows? Doesn't everything
not consume without it being put into a process. We have the
delicious sweetness of the pork. The chorizo goes in. While that is
cooking, we slice the onion. I will slice the fennel. We are going to
cut it all. You could wash the board. Will we get ill if I do it
this way? Not at all. The chorizo is already cooked. We are looking
for some flavour to come into that. Whenever you do things like this,
just scrape around the bottom of the pan. You get all the delicious
bits. Slice that in half and then into thin bits, thick bits,
whatever you want to do. With castles, people make the component
parts a little bit too small. -- casseroles. I like having chunky
bits in the casserole. And now the smell of that is delicious. Cheery
soul enhances so many dishes. If you're not quite sure what to put
in something to make it tastes delicious, it is one of those
things. Are you a fan will fan? love the fennel. It works with meat,
it works with fish. It is nice to roast. It is nice in so many ways.
The onions going, the fennel goes in. And then, to cook through that,
we have a lot of sweetness and heady flavour in there. With the
lemon, zesty lemon, this just gives us that little bit of flavour in
there. The DC Bradley Wiggins got injured? -- Did you see. He is a
top man. He has broken his shoulder. I have not seen any of it this week.
Mark Cavendish is doing well. Do you like cycling? In it is the one
sport I would rather watch than do. I had a spell of trying to cycle to
work and I really did not like it. It is hard work. I like running and
swimming but cycling is no good. Yes, it is a shame because I
thought he had a really good chance. Squeeze, the lemon juice goes in
there. We want lots of flavour. I am going to leave the lemon in
there. You cook the vegetables and then chuck back in awe of the meat
that we have sealed, plus all the juices that we have been there as
well. That is nice. The smells coming out of here are just amazing.
All of that, the lemon cooks through. They are a lot of flavours
in there. Roads but it is a nice balance. It cuts through the
heaviness of the pork. In goes some stock, cover it and let it simmer
and in a couple of hours we have that. Lovely. And then, how nice is
that? You can do on the top order in the oven. And with the lemons,
all of the extra bits of reducing their that you could not get out
from squeezing have gone into the casserole. -- the juice in there.
It keeps it fresh. When you have things like a casserole, it can be
heavy. And then just chat in three- quarters of the chick peas, or of
the olives and give it a stir around. I am going to wield some of
the spinach. What I quite like to do was to serve it alongside the
casserole. It keeps its own individual flavour. It happens very
quickly. A little drizzle of oil. You could use butter. This is one
of the best combinations that you have done. That starter was amazing.
And this smells amazing. You cannot go wrong. I think we that as well.
-- If you're looking for something easy to cook that you can forget
about... Its take such a long time. How do I know that I am going to be
hungry? When you finish your paper round and you come back in, you
have a bit of a wander around and you have watched Jeremy Kyle and
I turn that around? The spinach comes down like that. You can add,
if you wanted, a little bit of cinnamon. I do not think we need it.
I love spinets. Just keep breaking it down. We are calling this a
casserole but it is quite dry. If you wanted to be more moist, just
add more stock to it. Really delicious. The lemon cuts through
wet. Wilted spinach and then simply spoon... This is good hangover

It smells amazing. You go first. looks really hot. Denise is cooking

some chickpeas? I do fancy the little olive that has strayed over
there. All of the recipes will be Do not forget to e-mail questions

mind criticism. The British press actually called Yoko Ono idly in
the press. I have not seen that about anyone. Even if a person is
ugly, you do not say that. And she is not. And if she was, they would
not be so mean. They say attractive about the most awful looking people
just to be kind! When I landed in London, I was interested in the

But once I became connected with John, it was a different story. All
the people that used to like me were just kind of looking away.
John was a pop star. And then suddenly, he was with this crazy,
and outlandish artist and sending acorns to the world leaders. Hal is
that going to bring peace? And they were in bed, how is that
going to help anyone? All we are saying is give peace a chance. If
the least we can do is give someone a laugh, we are willing to be the
world's clowns. And you can imagine watching that great documentary

show. I love Lee Mack and I love that show. He is currently writing
the 5th series in a shed somewhere. It is brilliant. There was a stage
where it was not going to be recommissioned. After the third
series, they decided they were not going to do any more and then they
thought, maybe we should. It did stop briefly. Do you help with the
writing at all? Not at all. I turn up and get told where to stand.
is your type of humour. Loads of jokes. In American sitcoms, they
have a joke after joke and we wait for ever in British ones. He went
for lots and lots of jokes. Americans are better at sitcoms
than as any way. We are a bit more real-life in Britain. We love
things where we can be in a similar situation. That is right. Let me
think about that, yes, that is right. Some of our sitcoms can be
quite morose. Yes, quite real. have been asking the viewers to

yours. Black Beauty was a dark horse. That was 20 years old. Black
Beauty is a dark horse. And you did, three cheers for rap music, hip

writing. It is easy to knit or one- liners. There is a grey area
between the new -- you and Tommy Cooper. A lot of your jokes are
credited to him. Yes but I know which ones are which. There were 20
jokes on an e-mail and they were my jokes and it's said, "here are some
Tommy Cooper jokes". People said there was some stuff they hadn't
heard. But they are all my jokes. That is showbiz. Do constantly
think of things. See something, get a joke and write it down and think,
I will put that in or do you set time aside? It is more like that. I
am not crazily thinking about jokes all the time. If I have a tour
coming up, I have to write 10 decks a day. They every 109 right, I will
probably end up with three. Are you doing Edinburgh next year? This
year. You want the best joke last year, didn't you? It wasn't the
best joke in my show. I have been on a once-in-a-lifetime holiday,
never again! I met the man who invented windowsills. What a ledge!
What about your brother. Is he funny? He wrote a joke for me. I
went up to the counter and I made a noise and she gave me some medicine.
Where you and your brother very different growing up? Did you
always followed completely different parts? We used to want to
be pop stars so we were in a band and we used to wear flares. In the
Eighties, when it was all drainpipes so it was dangerous. I
played guitar. It was a terrible sound because Gerry used to sing
and there would be a drummer and me on acoustic guitar. So there was no

cooking? I am better now than I was then because I have an Aga cooker
and I love being a mum and preparing meals. Do you do all the
cooking? We share it. I am a better cook. What do you could forget see?
Different things. I normally freeze things so spaghetti bolognese...
Does it change the way you think about it? I used more fresh produce
so it is nice to get fresh veg from the garden. Have you grown anything
recently? I am crying -- trying to grow dill at at the moment. I
thought it would be like press and I would wake up the next morning.
But it didn't happen. Friends of... It friends of mine bake and they
are brilliant. What have we here? We will make chocolate Cherry

go down really well. You can teach me after the show. Crunchy and
delicious. There we have cherries. It is a great season. They are
and they are flavour some as well. Cherry liqueur. Loads of whipped
cream, sugar, egg whites and cocoa and chocolate. Denise, get the wis
gone and get that going. I am quite nervous about the risk. It is 8

will take you forever. The rule with it is, whisk the whites until
they asked if and add the sugar a little at a time. When it goes

meringue. What does it do? It works with the protein say you get a
better meringue. The vinegar and the vicinity just helps -- acidity.
You don't want Baby P meringue! ingredient in the kitchen, isn't it.
It is. It works with everything. All salt. Salt, number one and
vinegar and number two. A little dash of vinegar at the end, brings
out even more flavour. Stick it in your spaghetti bolognese. It is
great in that. I was being quite delicate with it. These are still a

how much it is observational? can't tell you that. It is the
magic circle! It is not scripted. There people will speak to the
producers and some of the... what, at the script writers tell

It is the first visit to Britain by a reigning Pope. It was nearly
cancelled because of the fighting. The busy schedule included a visit
with the Queen. He would crowds have turned out to welcome him.
What is certain is the deep -- that the government's economic
philosophy has suffered an embarrassing knock. The Queen
signed the royal proclamation today, giving official status to the new
pound coin. They were on display at the Royal Mint in Llantrisant today.

what year that was before the end of the shelf. But now, we are in
the mood for cocktails. Yes, we are doing Tiki drinks today. Benn has
been looking for the ultimate zombi recipe. That is the classic drink.
We will have my preferred recipe for a zombie. I thought I could
look quite call, but it is not really Magnum. I think it works
with the hair! The moustache would Zombie. We have the golden rum
be a good thing. We have some passion fruit syrup. We want about
10 mill -- 10 millilitres. I have put in the Golden rum and the
classic white rum. And then we have velvet falernum. Then we have the
fruit juices. Pineapple. There is a lot of alcohol. That is what I was
thinking. I love this, it is papaya nectar. With the pineapple, it is
absolutely beautiful. We will give it a little shake just to combine
it. Chill it down and we have a lovely zombi. This is a classic.
Tiki culture kicked off in the 1940s and 1950s. Right up until the
1960s. The first Tiki bars opened up and then places like Butlin's
started opening them up as well. imagine it will taste sweet. It has

Formula 1 calendar. Joining this life from the paddock, we hope, the
BBC team, Jake Humphrey. Welcome. How is it looking out there? It is
looking sunny, that is a relief. was sunny but now it is cloudy.
That is less of a relief. Good stuff. I have asked people to e-
mail in questions and most of them are about Eddie Jordan's shirts.
Not again! I am not saying. designs them himself. They are made
by my mother. Sebastian Vettel is way ahead this season. Is it still
a great season? Yes, it has been a great season so far. What we are
realising is that in the past, when one driver is dominating, it is not
brilliant but this year, we have had one man dominating but
brilliant racing. David Coulthard gets thrown into the commentary box
this year and he has so much to commentate on. We have had
brilliant racing but the same guy crossing over the line at the end.
That could change today. Sebastian Vettel did not have what he usually
has in qualifying which is a pole position finish. Mark Webber is on
pole position for this race and he is looking good today. What
happened in qualifying yesterday? It all got quite controversial with
the tyres and Lewis Hamilton. I think this is good for David.
do not think it was controversial at all. It was simply difficult
conditions and he did not make the right decision. When you have
changeable conditions, needed a bit of rain and they have not use the
correct tyres, limited knowledge, when it came down to making the
crucial decision, it did not work out for them. It is as simple as
that. But Lewis Hamilton is starting from 10th and we can
expect him to do some overtaking. Talking about the controversial
side of things, yes, there was controversial issues, particularly
about this fuse blowing. But not many people are interested warned
there were about it but I think it is scandalous to think that on a
race weekend, we had -- we can have people changing the rules. That is
unacceptable in my view. From a controversy point of view, I agree
with you. Isn't that controversial, away from that, that Lewis Hamilton
is criticising his team? It sounds as if he does not want to be there
The body language and the way it is playing out, there seems to be huge
frustration. Yes, it would appear that. I spoke on something we were
doing for BBC News last night and he said the team's will not change
for next year. 13, however, he would not rule that out. If he is
on his way to Red Bull in 2013... David, you have won the British
Grand Prix. Where does it rate among stall of the men the world at
the moment? It historically has been on the calendar since the
beginning of the Formula One world championship so it has great
historical value, Silverstone. It is a fantastic facility and has
been upgraded this year. The drivers love it because there are
so many high-speed corners. You only break for 10% of the lap. So
for 90% you are in partial or full throttle and that wears -- is when
you come alive. It gets your attention so there is no question
it is a fantastic facility and greatly enjoyed by all. It sounds
like you want to get back in the car. It is a new paddock, isn't it?
Can you let as the around? Yes, you can see the top of the roof up
there. This is a huge. About �30 million and 390 metres long. It is
attracting some seriously high- level guests. These shops are just
coming into worse now. There is Prince Harry who is that guest of
honour today. Our job is just to celebrate this new look. You go to
Abu Dhabi or Singapore and those places are amazing. People say
Silverstone has the history but does it have the infrastructure?
But now it does. I look forward to watching it. One final question,
who will win? Everyone is quiet. I would like to see it Mark where

rubbish. I tend to eat out a lot. I are smoked salmon trimmings which
are dead too cheap. And you buy them as Jennings? Yes. It is much
cheaper. -- trimmings. Egg, sugar, baking powder, dill. If you make a
savoury scone Gummer without sugar, it taste like pastry. The bit of
anything though. My mate said that he went to see the Harry Potter
premiere this week. They were cheap souvenirs. In fact they were...
Cash and Harry? They were a quid each! Very good. I would like one
really good joke that I could... What? I don't know. Just one really
good one. Try, one armed but lows. They can dish it out but they can't
take it. There is an awful lot about your delivery. It is the
mischief in your eyes. There is a Quiros in the way you deliver that
you sort of no. It is the ultimate bad joke. -- dad joke. That has
broken now. Does the one? Yes, it will bind it together. I said I was
good at staring but just not good at holding bulls. I like this one.
This has a soft spot in my heart, this joke. I saw Miss did tea at
the petrol station the other day -- Mr T. Pity the fuel! I said, have

went for a run twice the month before... Book I would be so
nervous. I was so exhausted. I got as far as the second ball. Most
people do. I couldn't even hold on to the rope. How about the other
runner think? There is one way you stand and the thing goes around and
you have to jump. This thing comes towards you and you jump and land
back on your poll. Did you win? I didn't. I was last after the
first round and that included someone who nearly drowned. I was
still after them. You have to be very... I don't even know the word.
Simon? I got asked to do it and I bottled it. I was thinking to
myself, I need to go towards the theatre. I thought I would do it
for a laugh. It would be my worst nightmare. I wouldn't even... I
would be useless. I don't know what would be more fearful, doing it in
Argentina or meeting Amanda! There are the scones. Great some Parmesan
cheese on top of those. Which side? That side. Not a huge amount. They
go into the oven for up to 10 minutes. For the filling, cream
cheese, smoked salmon and a nice bit of lemon juice. We have black
pepper in the scones. We give that a stir. It is a nice... It is a
nice twist on a scone, isn't it? How do I say it's? "scone"? I am
"15 sq on"! You can say both but the more common use is to rhyme
with John at rather than Joan. Either way it works. This is what
we get. Look at that! Think of it in the same way you would have
bagels with smoked salmon and cream cheese. It is like a savoury cream
t. A like your sandwich and scone mix into one. You can toast these
as well and spread some butter Ron. Then, it simply a big dollop of
that in the middle -- butter on. What are those things? Capers. Then
we pop their lead on. Perfect! As Simon serves up scones, or however
you want to say it, over to Denise. We are already eating. The year...
So, the year when the pound coin was first circulated, Dexy's

pork casserole. Tim has the savoury Denise, Amy says it Jason is the
nasty judge what sort of judge when you make? I was a judge on the
Andrew Lloyd Webber show. I will be honest and kind as well. They are
kind to the kids but a bit mean to the celebrities. Is it hard when
you are judging people, because you know they put a lot of work into it.
You have to take that into account. Let us not forget it is for charity
so I will not be too mean. Did you enjoy the Andrew Lloyd what --
Andrew Lloyd Webber stuff? Yes but you have to be honest so they can
better themselves. You should not be fluffy if there is work to be
done and they can improve their performance. Tim,... When I was

Sometimes it is flattering. It is nice that people like my jokes.
What did you think when the e-mail came round saying that your jokes
were from Tommy Cooper? At the time I was doing a lot of circuit gigs
so I would be halfway through a joke and some but the would say
that was a Tommy Cooper joke. But it was one of mine. Doesn't matter,
