Good morning. Welcome to the show. Bringing some glamour and showbiz
to the studio. We have Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud. We're
also joined by Jason Byrne. They have both here to cook, eat, chat
and take a look at next week's television. This is Something For
Good morning, welcome. You are watching Something For The Weekend.
Hallowed to all the people who got up early to watch the rugby. Wales
beat some hour 17-10. I feel really sorry for Mike Tindall. Fancy
playing a World Cup match in the middle of his holiday. I was not
expecting that! Can you imagine Usain Bolt, in the middle of the
Olympics? I am going to go and have a few lagers. They are doing well
now. Happy birthday to Lane. Her 60th birthday. My mum! Am I allowed
to say her age? She will not mind. She is 60 and proud. You were a way
last week but we went to the TV Choice awards. We when nominated
for an award. I did not know that. We were there. And Wayne as well.
Look at the boys on the town! You were pleased I was not there.
cocktail was the highlight of the evening. Some bloke won. Jamie
something? Did everyone look at you and say, I am really pleased for
you? Did you swear? Shall we just tell this story? We got down there
and they said, we are rubbish at being celebrities. They said, stand
in this queue to get your picture taken. There were a soap stars.
Simon and I asked did in this line Britain to have our photos taken.
We said, let's go. Is that rubbish? Two big, rubbish babies. The two of
you together. We ran away. We were like children. Louise, you were
away last week. What were you doing? I was in Uganda with Comic
Relief. It was amazing. Here I was at a school. Education is free for
everyone in Uganda. There has been a lot of work by Sport Relief to
getting kids into education. It is humbling and amazing. The reason I
was there was about getting girls into education. That is so
important for the future. I have been to Africa with Sport Relief.
That is one of the most important thing - to empower women in these
countries. In Western society, things got better. That is a really
important thing. It is teaching women, not just about maths and
English but their rights as women. A lot of women had children at 13
and 14 and their futures were taken away from them. I met a couple of
girls and they wanted to become doctors, lawyers and fight crime.
It was very inspirational. A lot of girls here should listen. I spent
five days crying - some out of tears of happiness and being proud
of what I saw - and some really upsetting moments. What I realised
when I was out in Zambia was how generous the British public are.
The amount of money that was razed, you do not have to do it. People
donate. What David Walliams did last week was phenomenal! Hats off
to him. As a charity, they are pretty amazing. Every penny goes
into helping people at ground level. Nicola Roberts has waited two years
to release a solo album. She is here today to talk about the
difference between being in Britain's most famous girl group
and striking out alone in the music industry. Jason Byrne is here to
tell us how the ginger kit, at number 33, is facing a national
tour. He is dressed as a circus ringmaster. You can e-mail us on
the website or tweet bass. Tell us your name and we can read it out.
What is in store for us today? are starting off with anchovy
palmiers with beetroot hummus. It has anchovy, parsley, lemon and
garlic in the middle. Really nice flavours. Our main course is a
Greek lamb with orzo. It is a standard casserole. Finished with
parsley, mint and rosemary. You can see long past debt in there. We
used barley in casseroles over here. Everyone will make this dessert,
salted-caramel millionaire's shortbread. We have done that
before. I cannot remember doing it since I was here. I am fantasising
we have done it! Also roasted red pepper and tomato cannelloni. We a
roasting garlic with vinegar. that on the website. This is what
else is happening on the show today. Harry is back in the last ever
series of Spooks. I take it personally when somebody tries to
blow up one of my officers. Planet Dinosaur looks at the origins of
birds. And the new cadet arrives at Sandhurst. I wanted to go to King's
College to do war studies but I did not get the grades. That is all to
come. Wayne is here. He has been digging out your old DVD box sets.
What is the school today? Two of Del Boy's classics. Did he reignite
interest in cocktail culture? We will find a buyer remake these
drinks. He gets better and better. -- find out when we make these
drinks. Did you like Only Fools and horses? Brilliant, mate. Wayne will
be in his element doing that. How many years is it? 30 years.
years of what? Since it came on the chickpeas and tahini. The puff
pastry is in the fridge. Tahini is ground sesame seeds. A very dry
texture. You'd buy it like that. If you spread it on a cracker and eat
it, it is difficult. For the palmiers, anchovies and a bit of
garlic. Chop the parsley and I am going to stick a few anchovies.
Chop the garlic. Really small? It does not matter. We need to talk
about your appearance on celebrity MasterChef. I am expecting you to
be geared after all the lessons you had. Nearly five years now, my
little protege here. Interesting. Have a look at this! What is
confusing me here it is the egg. I imagine it goes in the sauce.
want to see what this sauce is? is not good. No, no. It is raw and
in a thick, sticky batter. Not nice. They were harsh! It was horrible.
That was my first day. They said make ravioli. I was absolutely
hopeless. You will have to watch. I did get a bit better. Where you
nervous? I would be so nervous. would not make eye contact with me.
They cheated. They put some rogue semolina. We were making ravioli.
Semolina was to put on your hands. You put it in the food? Oh, no! I
would not have done that. I cannot believe you put semolina in your
pastor! They were trying to trick me and they did. Other people left
the ingredient out. We are going to make the filling for the palmiers.
We have anchovies in there. We have lemon and lemon zest and garlic.
Chuck all at Parsley in here and then we blitzed it. We do not need
any salt. There we go! We blitz that until it becomes a nice and
smooth. We put the puff pastry in here until it is nice and cold. The
translation of palmiers is little palms - sometimes known as elephant
is. What we do is we now, I need you to spread all of that over the
top of that. Just get it on with a spoon or a knife and spread it as
thinly as you can. What we do his role it both ways. I am not
laughing at you! Everyone has been, how did you get on? Did you get
through? We tried to wear a cap if I could cheat but you cannot.
work out. Can you practise the night before? If you have the foods
and you have the menu but sometimes they surprise you with stuff. I
think Simon would be proud of some of the stuff by kit. Debate like
it? -- I cooked. Did they like it? Tim would phone me and say, mate, I
just wondered... It would be one of those. It is definitely a good
watch. When you go on the show, that is it. You are in. You next
year, Louise. I would end the programme. We are running out of
time rapidly. You need to roll one way into the middle and then the
other way. For the hummus... What we need to do is chuck in the
beetroot and the chickpeas and the garlic. Then we're going to blend
this until it is smooth. What are we making? Beetroot hummus. We need
a bit of lemon zest. The zest from one and the juice from two. It all
goes in. We add a bit of olive-oil and add to he meet into there. It
is beautiful. -- tahini. We chill that. Put it on to the board.
need to egg it? No, it is fine. Put it in the fridge to stiffen. The
juice as well. Turn that back on. Sit it in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Now it is firm. Let's get rid of the end one. About that kind of
bigness. Have a little slice of that! We have not had the chance to
talk about New York fashion yet. Was it good? We will talk later. I
have so many tips for you. It was unbelievable. You'd brush them with
a egg wash. Did you have anything Uganda? The days were tough because
we were in villages where they only really eat maize. That was pretty
much it. Where we stayed, it was quite tough. You could get great
food, but because I was filming I was nervous that I might get ill
and it would be the wrong reason to be there if I cannot get out of bed.
So no, I didn't. But the restaurants that were out there
obviously do their own. I don't know what the main dishes are in
Uganda. I think it is meat. I always assumed it would be. What is
our national dish? Chicken tikka Marsala apparently. Fish and chips?
Roast beef. Lovely colours. The little palmiers, the puff pastry
comes up and the egg wash gives it a glaze. And like dipping pitta
bread into hummus, this is a different way. She is in her
element. When did you do that? I'm really not with it today at all.
Meanwhile, back in the studio... You get the saltiness of the
anchovies and the lovely earthy flavour of the beetroot and the
combination is delicious. Absolutely delicious. A really nice
combination of flavours. Yes, lovely. What is the main course?
is lamb with orzo, which is a Greek is back for supposedly the last-
ever series of the top spy drama, Are they all right? You s, but I
take it personally when someone tries to but my offices. They have
someone on the inside, housekeeping service to cleans for Moscow's
great and good. The word is they left Russia over a week ago. On the
quiet. No one is meant to know they have gone. Where? Here. They are in
London. That is impossible. He is a Russian minister, it would be on
the news. So he doesn't want us to know he is here. Your former asset
was to warn us. The only way she knows how to contact us is like she
did in the 80s. He will have him silenced by the owner of the
exploding laptop, who knows we are on to him. He worships Elena. If he
finds out he betrayed her, she is already dead. A lot about a laptop?
The hard drive is in bits. We need to find him and get surveillance on
him. This man is too good. He will see you coming. We have one person
dead already. This is a senior politician, so no direct
You can see Spooks tonight at 9pm. OK, our first guest is having a mad

Fringe, doing stuff like this. checked into a hotel and I went to
have a look around the hotel, because that is what Scottish and
Irish people do. We are not like Americans, they will check in and
go straight to the room and freshen up, but not us. We want a have a
look around the hotel, because you have paid your money. You want to
make sure the pictures match on the internet site of a hotel. Scottish
and Irish people cannot do this, we cannot walk by a room that has been
cleaned without looking into it. Because we are nosey..., that is
what we are. Australians, Americans, they mind their own business. Not
us. We walk by a room that has been He is Irish, a little bit lazy,
welcome to Something For The Weekend, Jason Byrne. The reason I
was looking confused was, he said I was in the sea and a C not to
shoulder of. We were talking about press-ups. It is such a manly show.
I was in the sea in Australia and people asked if I was surfing, and
what I was really doing was just walking out into the sea, and I'm a
really bad swimmer. A wave hit me, and I thought it was about six or
seven foot tall, but it was only two feet, but it hit me and I had a
boogie board, and I wasn't even doing the proper thing, the lying
down thing. I only did it in the white wash. I just dragged myself
into the sea. We went back out, and when I was walking out, a wave hit
me and you're supposed to go into a ball, apparently. When a wave hits
you you're meant to go in a ball, so this doesn't happen. Who taught
you that? An Australian. Were they are having a laugh? When I was
walking out, the wave came, they could see the panic on my face and
they were shouting to jump through it, going to it! Going to will ball.
And it hit me and I went in like that, and the boogie board went
that way, and this arm went up and over and snap out and I stood up,
and I didn't know what happened. And I stood up and my arm wasn't
here any more, it was just behind me. So ago I had to put it back in.
Just played twisted and put it back in. Did you have one of those funny
hats and red shorts. Was it just a regular bloke? That's because
English people don't put themselves in balls. He said, yes, this
happens all time. Serve as always come out with their arms hanging
off. -- surfers. You are as big in Australia as you are over here, if
not bigger. How come you made it in Australia? I got over there and it
was the Melbourne Comedy Festival, which is a brilliant one. When you
go over there there are about five celebrities in Australia, that is
it. There is only about 22 million of them anyway. If you have any
kind of strange head like this, that is a novelty and they say,
getting on the telly. And he has a nice accent, that will be good. I
ended up doing loads of TV stuff. Do you find the audience is
different in Australia? You yes, because they are automatically
happy. Immediately they are happy. Because they have the sun and some
vitamin D... I was in Blackpool and sitting in my hotel room, the sky
was grey and the sea was matching the sky and I was looking out and
the ground was grey and there were four grey cars in the car park.
suppose you have to cheer people up in England, but in Australia they
are kind of happy. If you come out and say hello, they think that's
good. That's all right. They are all sitting there in their white
clothes, looking fantastic. I can't get a tan, because my skin will
fall off. I was doing this piece on Bondi Beach, sunbathing, and it is
pure white sand, so matches my skin. When I laid down in my shorts, a
bloke came around and stood on May. My skin was the same colour as the
sand. But I cannot get a tan, can you? I don't tan. It is bad for you.
Tanned skin is damaged skin. And I tell you what, we will speak to
Nicola Roberts about that later because she has done a whole
campaign about stopping the ball going on sunbeds. Than some ice.
That is something for the weekend. Why is this called Something For
The Weekend when it is on a Sunday? Is the weekend not over? It is
something for next weekend. You keep your memories all the way
through the week. People home are hung over, going it was a brilliant
weekend, what's this? We need to be on on a Friday morning. Something
for a Sunday. Talking about Australia, you do audience
participation here, do you do it there? Yes. Your participation
involves asking the audience to bring you give us. Is this is
something that started happening? How did this happen? I was in
Leicester Square in the Comedy Theatre and a guy started leaving
stuff on stage. He left some underpants on stage and he had at
my face imprinted on them. I put that on my bum and on the front he
had a cactus, so people just started making stuff. I said I
should ask people to bring the GIFs. Encourage some more widows! -- Weir

avoid danger of suffocation Cape this bag away from children and
animals. This was just left on the stage. I've got all sorts. This was
brilliant. This is the Stone of Destiny. I did a gig in Perth, and
this is a big Scottish thing where the English starlet, and I had
never heard of it. In Perth they were trying to tell me, the English
stole it from us and we had to steal it back. I was doing a gig in
Dunfermline the next day, and a guide drove from Perth with this
book and left it at the door and said he could not stay in
Dunfermline for long because of the football team, so he had to leave,
because he couldn't be in the same town as the Dunfermline football
team. Crazy stuff. It is endless. A little old lady left to this.

that work? I don't know, just when I put it on its less breezy. People

With wings or diced? You can do what ever you want. -- wings. If
you make it two small, it turns into dog food. This lamb is a bit

that is Greek, cinnamon is the key flavour. They go in. As I work that,
all these lovely bits of lamb fat come together. I did a charity
thing this week. You go around and do trades on the trading floor of

You used this, I'm sure, on celebrity MasterChef. What do I

bit of vinegar - we are using sherry vinegar. It has that lovely
flavour. It changes the taste dramatically. The vinegar and herbs
go in the end and not the middle. You can serve this forever you want.

# Danced to the beat of my drum, Welcome, Nicola Roberts. Let's talk
fashion. You love a bit of fashion. I am told you have a show on Friday
you were on. Fashion Week is right in the middle of promotions. I
cannot, unfortunately, get to will the lovely shows I would like to. I
managed to get to the show on Friday. London Fashion Week looks
hard work. Don't you traipse around for hours and wait for them to come
on. I'm sure you go to shows you enjoy. Your unique in your fashion,
aren't you? I think you have separated yourself from the masses.
You have your own thing happening. Was that hard? Coming from a band
it is tough to be so low. I think you just have to be true to what
you like. I used fashion in a way that really can change the way I
feel. If you are having a bad day and to put something on you feel
good in, it changes your mood. I used fashion in that way. If it is
quirky and a want to be quirky, you have done with it. It should be fun,
shouldn't it? How did you feel the Daily Record of the video to a new

For how my hair was not literally stuck to my face, and I had any
make-up left on, I have no idea. I can't begin to tell you the heat.
It was unbearable. And it is a long day, a video shoot. My heart bleeds
for you out there. And had to do a video as well! Just the sound of
the record is a departure from Girls Aloud. That is out today, by
the way. The album is out next week. I suppose it is different. It feels
slightly quirkier. Each of us who have done it music, it's all been
different. Cheryl Col's records are different, and Nadine's album was
different. When you are in a band, people don't necessarily get to see
your personal musical taste, they just get the sound of the band. So
inevitably, it is more highlighted because I'm on my own. It is nice
to hear people's vocals. When you are in a band, it is snippets and
harmonies, so to hear a vocal on the record, it is great. It must be
quite a revelation for you to take the lead. It is a massive deal that
I have got my own album. I never really saw it ever happening. Then,
when I was given the opportunity, and I have the most amazing team.
Behind the scenes, the label, the management, we worked together
really well and it is just lovely to be a part of something like that
and having your own record is amazing. It is a massive deal to me.
How did they distribute the vocals with Girls Aloud? Who decides who
sings what? The producer would decide. Was there any animosity
between the girls? No, because we work as a team. It is a team effort
in a band. It can't be like that, otherwise it won't work. So you
have one caught in the kitchen, that's the producer, and he decides.
Are you reforming soon? Are you split up? No, we have not split up.
This is the same thing I always say, but next year it is our 10th
anniversary. 10 years? It doesn't seem that long. Are you sure about
that? I am not really dealing with the fact that you have to grow
older. So when I say 10 years, it makes me feel really old. You are
not old. You were young when you started. For but the fact I am able
to say 10 years... Do you feel the pressure as a solo artist? People
will be critical about what you do. When you are in a band it does not
affect you personally as much. is not as personal. When you are in
a team, you take the good as a team and the Knox as a team. When you on
your own, it is a lot scarier, but I hold on to the fact that I have
made the record I really wanted to make. And I am really proud of it.
If nothing else, I have it for the rest of my life, an album I love.
You must get asked to do a lot of charity work. The thing you have
chosen to get involved in is something about sun tanning and
sunbeds. I think I read that they used fake tan with you. I was a
serial fake tan a. Then you decided to embrace your skin colour. I got
to the point where I realised what I was doing, and the connection
between mentally feeling good but I had with fake tan was just
unhealthy. It was not good. It was awful. I would have been orange
streaks on my arms. I used to live with Sheryl, and our sheets and
towels were just black. She used to be like, her mum would come and put
the tells on 60 degree washes and shout at me. Tell us about the
sunbed part. I got involved with that, and we managed to pass the
bill, which was to have the age limit on sunbed increased to 18. I
had to do a speech at Parliament, which was scary. I was working with
Andy Burnham, the Health Secretary of the Labour Party at the time,
and that was really good. It felt like a really important deal. I was
proud to be involved. It is, because it is still fashionable to
do the sun tanning rubbish. In people's minds it is still
fashionable, but is unhealthy. Was it before 14? It was 16. It is
awful. OK, as always, Nicola is staying to cook up a dish in the

the 70s. Condensed milk is really thick and loopy. You are thinking
of evaporated rather than condensed. Evaporated milk in wet desert he's
gorgeous. I had a drink the other day and it was to have your five,
brilliant marketing for the vegetable and fruit people. Why
don't the protein people do that, nuts, Eto'o fruit, meat people, get
together and say you have three a day. Then you can have a pork chop
and have to have your three. Then the carbohydrate people can get
together, pasta, rice, bread, yet they can say you need one a day.
There is no way you need five a day. Your body doesn't work on a daily
thing. You know when you're in the pub, standing. So it is five a day
with nuts. A no, five a day with vegetables. Five portions of
vegetables a date. Why don't they all do it? You could go on Dragon's
den with that, Tim. Go and see how long you can stand in front of them.
Jenny says to you, did Jason get my phone number? My mum left it in his
box last night at the gate. I did, yes. I did get phone numbers. I do
get them a lot. I telephoned one once, and it was a random number.
Hang on, I am doing it. This is good cooking, this is. And that's
how you do it. Just move your hand around quickly. And then the bloke
down there puts the other one in my hand. Simon, seriously, it's nearly
identical. You have just worked it a little bit too hard. Work it too
hard? Surrey, should they have been some liquid? It is a gentle thing.
It is the last thing. That is why it didn't work. There was a lack of
love. I am sorry. When we have done it lovingly, we press it down, and
pretty with a fork so it does not rise too much. That is the first
base, the shortbread base. Give your hands a quick wash. My God,
look at it. We have loads of time on it. Oliver Drake says, and I
will ask the question then asked another. Who inspire due to become
a comedian? But whenever you interview bans you always ask how
to get together, but with a comedian it's always how did you
get into comedy? You were an electrician, and then what
happened? Most comics get into it by accident. They think we leave
school and say we will be a comedian. By one a joke competition
at a comedy club. -- I won a joke competition. I won a baseball cap.
Do you know what to Caprice? Yes, but is a strange price. We should
go drinking more often. At Cap. I have an idea, Jason. I'm going to
enter this competition in get to win a cap? I went to collect my cap
at the end. Were you were grown up? I was 24. Didn't someone at some
stage wonder why the prize was a cap? Know. It was a stupid one.
What is the worst prize you have ever seen? I don't know, a cap is
not a great prize. It doesn't encourage people to enter a
competition. Let's have a committee meeting, at Cap! Car? Money? Dinner
for two? It was a comedy club. much money have you got? How minted
you are these days. I don't want to cap, I once jaws and a Ferrari. --
people to enter a competition. You're not going to sit there if
what you win is a cap. You don't enter a competition at a comedy
club, you just do it. So why is it a competition then? The embassy
said here is a line, and you have to finish it and you might win a

difference between two ex- presidents of Ireland? I said that
Mary Robinson does not live next to my mum. I won. Oh, my God! Maybe I
did not win the prize after all. That looks fantastic. Pour about on
top. If you're going to make it, let it set completely. If you are
trying to cheat... I think I am crying. It is so beautiful. When
the chocolate ceps, just look at that layer of caramel! That is the
thing and parrot that. -- about that. Are they equal layers? This
vertically, I think they should be equal. -- aesthetically. Do you
know why it is not biscuit? Because poor people eat biscuits. Are you
saying I am a snob? No. Can we sneak in early for this? Go for it!
I feel guilty. You could feed each other with that. That is romance.
This is serious, isn't it? It is like someone is making love in your
face. Read the link. What are you making? Red pepper and spinach
cannelloni. And the Kop terrace in a few minutes bus-stop first, the

Boy cocktails, aren't you? He is always ordering various mixes and
various things. This one is called a Caribbean Stallion. He tried to
be like James Bond. He asked for paraphernalia, umbrella and fresh,
seasoned fruits. Is this a drink? His way. Tequila, coconut rum and
creme de menthe. Lots of ice. He says, shake it and do not stir.
Let's have a go! I am waiting for the real thing. I knew I was doing
the right thing waiting for the real thing. It tastes like

cocktail? I like lychee Martini. always went to the Nags Head. He
would say, Singapore Sling. He always had it really ridiculous. It
is a simple drink. You are making a Singapore Sling. It came from but
Raffles Hotel. It is gin, cherry liqueur, French bitters, and simply
mix with some ginger ale. Over time pineapple juice and grenadine went
in. This is actually how it should be. It is a nice gin and ginger ale
and lifted up. The sort of thing has come back. That is why we're
going to put a nice umbrella inept. It is nice and refreshing. -- in it.
It is the original Singapore Sling. He also liked a daiquiri. What do
cocktail barman think of that? Do you like it? It is like a Pym's.
That is based on the old Singapore Sling. A natural to Keri is rum,
lime and sugar. -- Thackeray. Everyone started to put bananas and
strawberries in. -- daiquiri. The classic one is rum, sugar and lime.
Very simple. We had a cocktail the other night. You were having an in-

simple drink. Strawberry, strawberry liqueur, you can make it
frappe. It changes its constituency and texture. This is probably the
most popular flavoured one. A strawberry daiquiri, followed by a

was tentative. We were maker roasted red pepper and spinach
cannelloni. We have Pepper's we have roasted and skinned, so you do
it over an open flame or a hot oven. The they look lovely. It is quite
hard to do this successfully. think it is dead easy. You have to
roast them for longer than you think. What you are looking for is
this to happen. A I end up with hardly any pepper. Roast them for
longer. Remember when you discover the joy of Cameron -- caramelise
and onions. You must be a really good cook at home. Can we not say
that. He will be watching, my husband, at chucking his slippers
at the TV. Louise is a really good cook at home. Spinach, pecorino,
ricotta, and rather than making a tomato sauce, we will roast them
with garlic and thyme and olive oil and vinegar. The first job for you,
Nicola. We tip all of the peppers into their and all of the spinach
into there. I love spinach. Good for you. Four of iron. Then a bit
of salt and pepper. I don't know about you, Nicola, this is
something I would genuinely cook at home. Just click that on and we are
pureeing this. This will be the finish for the Kalou only --
cannelloni. A lovely colour, lovely red and green. Canute do it in a
big one like this question are you can still do it in small batches.
If you want to just chop the spinach and pepper, that will work
as well. So then we go back to your station. Tip all of that into the
air and give it a mix around. quick tip, what inspired to write
Cinderella Eyes? It is an album track I wrote early on when I was
making a record. It is like a positive message. It is about my
take on fairy-tales and happy endings. I feel like a lot of
people in the world feel that they are owed things. Rather than having
to really work hard for staff. That is how I felt when I was making the
album. It was like a journey and it is my take on happy endings and how
you have do work hard. It is a good message and I wanted to call the
album it. You designed the shoes on the album, so it does all time. I
would love to design shoes. It was the most amazing thing. So many
opportunities just from making a record. It has been incredible. I
work with a designer called Atalanta Weller. I told her the
album title was Cinderella Eyes and I wanted to create the modern day
glass slipper. And we brought in a designer and it was just an amazing
thing. Now I have my own shoe, which is amazing. So the feeling
he's done. That is one part, and the next thing we do is just tip
all of the tomatoes into there. I have slice the garlic, and this
will be the source. Rather than making a tomato sauce, we will
roasted. Then we Tippet over with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar
and I will roast them so we get a lovely flavour and we have a little
bit of thyme. His cooking something you are interested in? When I have
the time and I am at home, I really like to spend a few hours in the
kitchen cooking. What do you cook? You know what, I make such a good
Scouse. Do you have a secret ingredient? We grew up on a lot of
roast dinners and casseroles and stuff like that. My boyfriend, been
from London, did not grow up on that a tall. I was like having
Scouse every night of the week, and he wondered what the obsession was
with potatoes and meat. I do like cooking it for him. You roast the
tomatoes and they end up like that. The smell is gorgeous and we have
the roasted garlic and tomatoes. There was a lot of oil. Loads!. We
are not having this in a sauce. What we are having is the moisture
in there. How long was that in for? 20 minutes, because they are cherry
tomatoes and they will rise quite quickly. And they will get cooked
again. A little bit of pecorino in there as well. We have got our
tomato sauce and filling. With the pastor -- the pastor, the thing is
we have to have a holding together, so we need to make sure that we
pack the dish we are cooking it in well. If you don't have enough
tubes are cannelloni to do it, say you only filled it to there. Don't
let it sit, packet with some tinfoil selling or keeping place
otherwise they will spread out. You can see how sloppy the mixes. All
we do is a bit of that down there and roll them up. I will do one,
you do the other two that his heart. We put a bit of oil on the base and
the cuts is on the bottom edge. You packet for an keeping going.
quick e-mail from Ian Hartley. If you could could collaborate with
anyone, he would it be? Kanye West. I am such a fan. I think he's beats
and everything, everything is so full of imagination and the
production is incredible. I am a massive fan. He would be a great
collaboration. What am I doing here? Just keep rolling it so it is
all held around. That is trying out a bit, and it will also crack, but
that is fine because there will be loads of moisture on top. Lovely.
Basically you fill the whole dish, and all we do is scoop this on the
top, which will be the source. You have all this lovely flavour and
everything goes on top. Then back into the oven and bake it for about
15 minutes. It looks very pretty. When it comes down, rather than
being blue p, it is lovely. We get this lovely, delicious dish and
then to serve, we simply scoop it out. While Simon plates up the

Nicola wasn't -- was an Everton fan. My money is on Tottenham. Who told
you that, Jamie? We never got to the back of that question, how you
became a comedian? The question was who was your inspiration. What
happened after that? I went uncollected my cap and my mate said
that I wanted to do comedy, and African of mine said I would put
you down for five minutes each -- and a friend of mine. That is how I
started doing it, I just kept going. Oliver Drake asked what are your
thoughts on shows like the X factor? What was your one called?
It was called Pop Stars: The Rivals. That didn't have Simon Cowell. It
had Gerri Halliwell, Pete Waterman and Louis Walsh. I think it is a
great opportunity for people to showcase what they can do.
Especially if you don't live in London, there are not that many
opportunities for people up north. If you have a talent, that is what
you want to do, then go for it. think he mucks up and he gives you
the record contract, but surely he should give you a cap. Can you
imagine the turnout if he brought everyone a cap? I would love to see
