Good morning. It's 10am. It's Sunday 31st July. We are joined
today by Theo and Adam. They are treading the boards in legally
blond. Top chef Angela Hartnett. We are
all here to do some cooking, gadgets and look at next week's
telly. Good morning, welcome to Something
For The Weekend. Louise is hot off on I think her seventh or eighth
holiday of the year. She's single- handedly keeping tourism going in
the world. She's off to Spain, I believe. Alex is here. Nice to be
back. Simon is off touring around California with his kids. So Angela
has stepped in here. You have just come back from your holiday. This
is the end of a three-week break. This is the first day back in work.
Where have you been? Well, I ae been to Cardiff. Very exotic this
time of year. Very hot. Good beaches Lovely clean sea. There are
some lovely beaches in the Gower. My ex-wife came from that area.
The beaches are amazing. These huge beaches. Get yourself down there.
had a lovely week in Sicily as well. Lovely food and fine. I bet it was
hot. It was 42. On my mother's side they are Italian. Italian-Welsh.
It's very bizarre. When you go back to Italy in the summer, I'm not
going to imitate a Welsh accent. Is your mother coming.
That bloke in EastEnders, Ian Beale - I liked him. In Wales there is a
lot of people with dark hair. the Italyons -- Italians. You have
the Welsh Italians. I am part of the Welsh Italian mob. Where do you
go on your holidays Italy. Go to America, because my brother lives
out there. I am a European. have a restaurant that you have to
keep working. Do you manage to take time off? Totally. I believe in
time off. If you are there all the time, no-one gets to do other stuff.
These guys want to manage. They want to learn, run their own
kitchen. If you are there breathing down their necks all the time.... A
great guy runs the restaurant and another one manages it. Where's the
best place in the world for food? think London does great. We have
such a range. I think New York is a fantastic place as well.
Produce wise probably Europe because of the sun. We don't get
the sun over here, so we don't get the fruit necessary. It would be
tough to have a bad meal now in this country. Where are you going
to your holiday Norway. You are going to have a lot of fish.
I'm going fishing. I am looking for trolls and stuff. Do you like beach
holidays? Do you tan? Tanning is 1980s.
are right. There is no such thing as a healthy tan. Skin is your
largest organ. You have to look after it. It was the royal wedding
yesterday. So we have some footage here of them. What do you think of
the dress then? Gorgeous. Very nice head piece. Does she scrub up well?
That is the head piece her mother wore.
Apparently she is staying as Zara Phillips. What do you think about
that? If you have Phillips or Jones you would change. Drop of the hat.
Just like that. So our guest today burst on to the music scene in 00 9,
Theo has come fourth in the BBC's sound of 2010. Not only that they
did a duet with Kylie Minogue. the winner of Any Dream Will Do,
Lee Mead has teamed up with access Natalie Casey to tread the boards
in the West End. It is superb. went to see it, didn't you,
yesterday? Silt one of the best shows I have seen in the West End.
They have to do the bend and snap thing. All the girls who have come
in here have bad backs because they have to do it so many times. They
have to roll, like this. Show Alex. What do I have to do? You go like
that. Bend and snap. Very well done! Then aparently all
the fellas love you. If you have a question you want to ask e-mail via
our website. We will try and ask them. Remember
to tell us your name. That very -- is very important. We'll do four
dishes. The first one, these lovely Thai fish cakes, with the devil's
herb, coriander. Not another one who doesn't like it. I do, we have
an afilllation with old coriander. A chef doesn't like it. You cannot
have Thai food without coriander. It goes well with this dish, so I
will use it. I might make Tim chop it. I cannot get over it!
The next dish, no coriander, so we have some brilliant meatballs. You
cannot get better than that. With lovely potatoes, cooked in the oven,
finished with a lovely tomato sauce. Fantastic! Our third dish is a am
retty cake, which is from - amaretti cake. A bit of cream - who
wouldn't....? Lovely! Lovely tortelli. You have with it pepper,
nutmeg and Parmesan cheese. show today is sponsored by the
Italian tourist board. A great place for a holiday. I think Italy
and Wales, the way they went there is because it is a sing-songy
language. All our recipes can be found on our
website. On today's packed show:
Millionaires are back in Dragons' Den. Please, can I start again?
Biology ist John Hutto spends a year living with turkeys. Jazz gets
behind the wheels of a new car in Small Teen Big World.
Looking forward to all of that. Something for the weekend would not
be complete without a -- Something For The Weekend would not be
complete without a cocktail. What have you brought home from the
States I got a nice fridge magnet. Was that the runner-up prize,
Wayne? Nice one! He was in a competition. You were
best barman of the world, nominated. He didn't win. What cocktails are
you making for us today? A classic New Orleans drink, New Orleans fizz.
A big summer drink there and goes back over a century. Also a nice
prohibition drink, a New York Sour. I spent a couple of days in New
York on the way back. At the beginning of the show when I
first saw him I said, "hard luck." He said, "American judges."
Right, we'll do some cooking. Angela, we will make Thai fish
cakes with coriander. This intrigues me. I really don't
like coriander. People who don't like it really don't like it. It is
not like I don't like rosemary. What is not to like The perfume. It
is too strong. You have to do what people want and what goes with
dishes. We'll do these Thai fish cakes. Coriander works. You could
not put in parsley and basil. It is too weak in flavour.
What about you tasting it I go fish paste, chilli, lime juice, a
touch of fish sauce. We will finish it with this fantastic Thai dipping,
which is with tomato ketchup, vinegar and mint and coriander.
I'll do the fish. If one of you guys can chop the spring onions and
the other the coriander. What do you want me to do - the
coriander. Usually they don't let me use knives on this programme.
That is because I am here. I am a female chef. They cannot be sexist,
you see! How did you start cooking? I have
come from a family that cook allot. We were brought up with a lot of
food in the household and stuff. So it worked. I just enjoyed it. I
have always, excuse me - the noise - I was always good at it and liked
the idea of owning my own restaurant. I thought it would be
fun. I never thought I would get to this level,vy to say. I am happy
it's all gone well. Do you love it? I think to do the hours we do, you
have to like it, at least. I would rather do more hours in a job I
like, rather than do a job that's not for me. You know? That's my
feeling about it. How fine do you need this coriander? That's fine.
I've put the fish in here. We've whizzed it about a bit. We have the
fish paste, the chilli. Both these ingredients can go in there, guys.
If you don't mind, that will be great. I have seen you whip it up
with a knife. That's good. Careful you don't cut your fingers.
Is your speciality stuff then Italian? I'd say. It is stuff I
like to eat. It is something I like to cook. It is what I know about.
If you know about it, stick with it. That's the thing. I get a meal at
the chef's table in the connought, where you were cooking, a lot of
people with us. It was delicious. A lot of people with us were
vegetarians. Is that hard for you to do when you are cooking?
That's how I made my millions. did you eat? Was it that memorable?
You would have had pasta, fish, a meat thing. You know what, to be
honest, vegetarians, we had a vegetarian men on. It is amazing
how many people go -- menu on. It is amaze how people go for that
kind of menu. I eat a vegetarian dish. When you do a tasting menu
like you did, it must be hard for you. The worst is when I had an
actor come in and he has nothing. He is a total have began. It was
Boxing Day. So you had nothing coming in from suppliers. We had a
turkey feegs. We were rummaging in the -- feast. We were rummaging in
the fridge. Put some in your hand and like this,
mould them into little cakes like this. I will fry them off.
Shallow fry them, will you? Shallow fry them. Chop some more coriander
and mint for me. Perhaps you want to do that as well. It's the egg.
You found it with the egg. That will keep them together when I
start to fry them. Any potato in these? No. They will
go straight into the pan now. Three and four. That is perfect. You are
very good at this. Simon has taught you well. I have been on the show
four years now. You should be. You have learnt
something! Can you deep-fry these as well? It is safe tore shallow
fry them. They could fall apart if you deep fry them. They are nicely
staying together. If you did deep fry them they might fall apart.
am not sure this mint looks brilliant. You cannot get your
rocking motion right. Someone told me to do this. Is this right?
your point on the thing and rock. You don't have to go that high.
Good. Don't cut your fingers. Once you have chopped that put it
in there. That's perfect. All of it? I will
give it a little mix there. That will be our relish.
Do you cook in your restaurant? cook a fair amount. I'm not quite
as absent as some people would think. I think people see you on
the telly and think you are permanently away from your
restaurant. It is important that you are there. I am definitely
there a few nights a week, doing lunch services. You need a really
good team around you. Diago has worked with me ten years now.
were once the team of Gordon Ramsay, weren't you? Yes. You worked with
him. He is amazing. Did he do all every element of the dish is as
important as everyone. He gets a lot of bad press, Gordon. We went
to do an item in Claridges in the kitchen with him and he was lovely,
really nice. He is a great guy. nice guy. Really nice guy. We are
going to baste those to make sure they're cooked inside. He is great,
Gordon. I worked 17 years with him, so you don't work that long with
someone if you don't get on with them and it works well. When he
starts swearing and shouting at you... Then you pwpl immune -- you
become immune. Do you shout in your kitchen? I try not to because then
you get as stressed out. I do that womanly thing, I am not angry, I am
just disappointed, to really make you feel bad. We put these together,
did we? The ketchup, honey, vinegar in a pan, bring it to the boil
until you have this thick consistency and add mint and
coriander and chop the onion, obviously. Are you going to try
this? Of course. A big mouthful of coriander? No, I am going to try
the fish cake and dipping sauce, that is what I am going to try.
There is coriander in the fish cake. I am going to eat around it.
admire you for doing that. Don't you think that - sorry
everyone to bang on about it, don't you think coriander arrived a few
years ago and has taken over the world? There was an article that
said people that are smart like coriander. I have read because it's
I am not as evolved, we think it's still poisonous. They're lovely.
That's delicious. Thank you. Really good, apart from the
coriander. You can't taste the coriander in the dip. I suppose
when - we will, we would be able to. What are you making for main
course? Fantastic meatballs with a lovely tomato sauce and oven
roasted potatoes. As As -- as always, you can get all the recipes
on our website. Time now to have a look at a new series of Dragons'
Den when entrepreneurs tried to -- try to secure cash for their
schemes from the millionaires and joining the panel is a new dragon,
The present club is a toy shop with a twist, it's the first ever
children's website to take contributions towards children's
presents. The website treats children to an
online experience, they create OK. Sorry, there's 5,000 games and
Children can... Sorry, please can I start again?
Sorry. You are doing OK. Carry on. You're doing OK. Tell us.
The website basically I have around 2,500 - 25 suppliers. I am sorry, I
can't. I have completely lost it. Sorry. You can see the new series
tonight at 9.00pm on BBC2. I love a bit of Dragons' Den. So do I. Our
first guests released their first album Happiness less than a year
Apology for the loss of subtitles for 47 seconds
# I know that I hold you some day # Until you come back where you
belong Adam and Theo from The Hurts...
Sorry Hurts. It's so hard when you are just called Hurts for thick
presenters like me. Can we call you The Tim? You can, that's good. I
like that idea. How are you doing? You have been touring a lot
recently, where have you come back from? Germany last week and a whole
festival run this summer. Probably about 20 countries or something.
It's great. Latvia, Estonia, Poland, amazing places. I follow you on
Twitter and you are always in Russia or Eastern Europe. You spend
a lot of time there, how come that happened? It's bizarre really, it
was the first place in the world, Germany and Russia, before England,
were the first places to like our music and we have this strange sort
of existence where when we go there we do arenas and stadiums and stuff
and it gets bigger, the further east we go. All these places you
would never go, Macedonia, to Ukraine. We never left Manchester
for years. Now you are on the road all the time. You are so massive in
Russia that you are checking into hotels under different names like
Lorraine Kelly, does she know about this? Maybe we should start using
different ones, I am going to use yours soon. I am not well known in
Eastern Europe. And write stuff on the walls. Tim's wrote something
rude. How did they find your music, via the internet? YouTube for us,
we made a video for 20 quid years ago and it's had millions of views,
it's got us around the world. they buy a lot of records in
Eastern Europe? It's more a live thing for them. The concerts are so
big and the industry is in a tough way, the further you go they value
the live performance a lot more which is great, because you can
consistently go back. We went to Taiwan as well, which was amazing.
The further you go there, yeah. big are audiences you are playing
to? It depends. We are doing an arena tour in October which is
5,000 and up. Where is that in Russia? Eastern Europe and Germany
and Poland. We do Brixton Academy and here and stuff. Do you speak
Russian. You only need to know five words in each language and you can
pass yourself off. Yes and no and really and definitely and then
maybe. By the tone of someone's voice you can tell what they're
doing and they go de-de and you go really? You are all over the place
and we mentioned you did Glastonbury, what's been your
festival highlight so far? That was the big one for us. As a band you
grow up dreaming of doing something like that, all the UK ones are
really good for us. We had a festival in Bulgaria, 20,000 people,
that was good. There you are in Glastonbury. Very smart, always
very smart. When was the decision made you were going to dress smart,
or have you always? We went for a job interview and our house
gotburgled and they stole the rest of our clothes. I work in a bank
and I just got in! We were on the dole for four, five years and we
used to do it to get a bit of dignity back. If you walk in it's
hard enough as it is and if you dress smart people like listen to
you. That's what they say, look good, feel good. When I first read
you were from Manchester I was shocked because I assume, terribly,
that all people from Manchester from the jacket zipped up and the
swagger going on. I don't think I ever asked a band in my life this,
how do you meet, because it's an interesting story? Yeah, it's
romanticised a bit more than it is, we were at a nightclub about 4.00am
and we didn't know each other and our our friends were fighting each
other and obviously we were too drunk to fight and we just went. It
was like, are you having that or not. It was like no, and it went on
from there. The next day it started. It's like, you would imagine it was
a Studio 54 situation, it wasn't. You just exchanged phone numbers.
Like what are you doing tomorrow, signing on, what else, nothing else.
Do you want to make a good song, all right. You did your first video
for �20 and put it on YouTube and on this album the song Devotion is
a duet with Kylie Minogue, how did you go to having Kylie on your
album? We sent her a fax and said we are a big fan. The fax obviously
didn't get through! It was the last thing we did for the record, we
finished it and felt there was a space for her, only her because we
loved her so much and we kind of got the guts together and then went
and sent her an e-mail and she got back and it was a bizarre end to
the story that she did it. It was great. When are you going to write
new material? We are getting on the train now, going back to do some in
Manchester. We felt maybe make one album, blaze of glory, disappear to
Russia but it's not worked out like that, because everyone is like when
is the next one. We have had a text asking are you planning a UK tour.
At the beginning of November we do Glasgow, Brighton and Brixton
Academy, it's the end of our run. You can use more than five words
there. Yeah, but probably still use the same ones! I read recently that
you said the reason why you haven't written new material is you are not
misral enough yet. Is -- miserable enough yet, is that the reality of
writing, you got to be depressed. On tour it's difficult to write
music, we feel, most of the time you are having a good time. Now we
are starting to get it. You do need it, it's a product of the difficult
seurgs it does come out -- circumstances it does come out.
That's how we learned to do it by trying to escape. Maybe we will
have to engineer something bad to happen. Do you share writing
responsibilities? Yeah. He spends all his life on a golf course.
have to caddie for him and we write songs. I would love it if he
caddieed for me. You are compared to a lot of people like Depecho
Mode. I think you are a bit Aha. Nothing wrong with that, is there.
What upsets you, which comparison? Aha probably! Stop stirring.
obvious ones always come up. Depends where you go, in the
Ukraine, they think we are the next Backstreet Boys or something.
are not. I like to think we were like Morecambe and Wise. That's
what I am going for. All right, thank you. They're staying with us,
so if you want to ask ask Hurts a question or our other guests then
you can tweet or e-mail via our website. Please remember to send us
your name. Do you cook? I do. will see how good you are later.
Time to put your thinking Caps on and guess what year DJ Pied Piper

Government. # Do you really like it...
You lot are looking very cheerful. What are you plotting? We are
trying to think of ways to cheer up Barbara. You got any ideas?
Something's put a twinkle in your eye. Tell her every cloud has a
silver lining. That's great advice, Right, I may have asked you this
before, but what year was that? What year do you think that was?
is that era when you go to maglufl. I go for 1997. 1998. I think it's
2001. Because you have been listening over there. That's why.
think so. We can flash back to the recipes
you all cooked last week. Who got their photos on the fridge? Here we
have Sue and David Whitaker. They have retired and are living in the
Algarve. They made the tart last week. Look at the cat, she's had a
stroke. Is it a gag? No, she's a bit gammy. That's 18. My cat was 24.
24? I thought it was a record. It wasn't. 38 is the record. I should
not say this on the telly. What happened to it? Died. Natural
causes, Tim. We've got here, left to right, Maddi and Rebecca Peddle
and their friend Isobel Poulter. This couple made the chocolate pots.
This is the first desert they have attempted.
Good. If If you cook one of our dishes send a name and photo, with
or without a pet to our website: You could be on the fridge next
week. So, we made the fish cakes. They were delicious. We will now
chop the parsley. We have some lovely beef there. Lovely minced
beef. Fresh parsley. Some egg to bind it. Onion and bread, soaked in
milk. You know you get meatballs when it is a burger mix it is too
hard. The softness with the bread mixes into it. Is that steal?
cook them separately. Add tomato sauce, a touch of rosemary, garlic,
tomato puree and finish it, if it is too acidity with a touch of
sugar. A top tip there. I am going to taste all the way through.
you don't mind chopping. You mix I'll chop. I like chopping.
Sheer the tork. This is flat leafed parsley. What happened to normal
parsley? Has it died a death? that Italian influence. Everybody
likes flat leaf parsley. Is it easier to cook with? It has a
stronger flavour. Some salt in there. A little bit
more I think. Some pepper as well. This is great, this show. You are
doing everything. I have only liked meatballs since last November.
come? I don't know. I tasted them. There was nothing else available. I
thought, "Where have I been?" I thought they would be more like fag
gots. Actually.... Some raw onion in there as well.
You are going ahead of yourself. Great some Parmesan in there as
well. Should she get in there with her
hands? I think you're right there. How much Parmesan do we want?
like to be in control until I say stop. If you add a tiny little bit
of egg. Not all of it. It is there to bind it. That's enough. Give it
a good mix with your hands. OK? You will get them dirty any way to
shape the meatballs. Your restaurant has a Michelin star,
what is the name of your restaurant? Marano. Do they get
renewed each year? The inspectors come and they check your restaurant
out. You will know in January. This year they are changing, it is
October this year. They brought it in line with the other guides. You
don't know when they are. As a chef you think, that's the one. It is
always the lone diners. Not always, sometimes they come in pairs. You
have to treat everyone as they are a customer. Don't forget they are
customers and they are viewing it for a guidebook. That's perfect.
what point did you realise, working under Gordon, that you were ready
and go and look after your first restaurant? He gave me that
opportunity when I opened a restaurant out for him in Dubai.
Nice rounded balls. Some flour. You start them off. When I went out to
Dubai and opened a restaurant out there for him. A lot you learn from
experience. You have to. You make mistakes. Provided you don't let
mistakes leave the kitchen, so to speak and I think the best thing is
humility. If something has gone wrong in the service go and
apologise to the customer. If you are arrogant about it. None of us
are perfect. I am going to show you the tomato
sauce. We have garlic and onion, which we have saw teed off. We will
add some tomatoes there. A touch of rosemary. A little pinch of sugar.
That takes away the acidity you get with tomatoes. We will add some
tomato puree. Let that simmer away until you get this lovely thick
sauce, like so. OK? Then we start cooking these.
How important is a Michelin star to you? Or to chefs in general? Some
chefs will say it's not important at all. Ones who don't have them?
You will get me hated by half the industry, here, Tim! I think the
thing is, when I have spoke on the inspectors, say I cook for my
cheers, I run a busy -- for my customers. I run a busy, successful
restaurant. Cook for your customers. I believe accolades will follow. It
will be a full, busy restaurant. Does it mean you can put your
prices right up with a Michelin star? You have the wrong impression.
�40 a burger. I would love a Michelin star burger for �40.
do you recommend? I have discovered Biron Burger. You can get a skinny
burger, which is a burger with some salad. I live around East London,
Pixyi's Place. Canteen. Really easy food, nothing complicated.
Somewhere you can go with a hoodie, a pair of jeans and flip-flops.
After a hard day, if you think I want something easy to cook, what
would you eat in front of the telly? I try not to. You end up
eating at 11 at night. It is the worst things, like cheese sandwich
with a glass of wine. Nothing nicer. And some Mr Sugar on the Apprentice.
Everyone loves it, white bread and plain crisps. Not having that at
all! It's find of a male environment
isn't it, cooking in the kitchens? Yes. I think so. It's not so much a
male environment, it is because there are so many men in the
kitchen is the point in a way. I've never experienced sex
discrimination or anything. It worked to my advantage and still
does to be a woman because there are so few of you in a male kitchen.
It is a good thing. Less women, makes me look better. Now I am
going to get shot. People who don't have Michelin stars and every woman
who cooks. You have your meatballs nice and brown like so. In the
tomato sauce, just to finish them. And what we'll do, because
obviously these have been cooking, you need to let them cook for at
least five, I would say at least 15 minutes, 10-15 minutes, they are
lovely. I quickly get the potatoes from the oven. They look nice!
Really good, don't they? You'll like this one. Excuse my
fingers. Come on over. Get stuck in and give that a go. Theo, watch
your white shirt. This could get messy!
Sorry, guests first. Ladies first. It is ladies or is it guests? So
confusing. Scope it up. Use your fingers. Very decent. Thank you
very much. That's absolutely delicious. Simple.
Good ingredients. Amazing. What is Adam and Theo
cooking? You are going to make an am retty cake. -- Amaretti cake.

the song about finding Irish men and falling in love with them. A
brilliant show. Both of you were superb in them. What's it like
working together? Brilliant. We are curly hair twins. Exchange hair
tips. Mesh forever! How long have you two been doing it
now? I have been there nearly four months I have been four weeks. So
I'm quite new to it really. You did two performances yesterday.
yesterday. How were you, out of ten? I would say about seven.
both! That's not bad. Nine-ten. were both superb. You are on stage
for a long time. It must be hard doing so many shows. Two on a
Saturday, one every night. Two on a Thursday. For the first couple of
weeks you feel like you might die at any moment when you are doing
the dance numbers. It's a stamina thing. You get used to it. You are
nabgered by the time Saturday comes and I sound like Barry White on a
Saturday night. You get used to it. Don't you?
do. I don't know many people who have not seen it. Everybody I bump
into have seen it. Give us some I play a student and he meets the
lead girl in the show and he shows there's more to life than chasing
off to Harvard Law School and we form a friendship and I meet your
character on the way. I play the crazy hairdresser with the wig of
death. It's like unbelievable that wig, and then she comes to my salon
in order to revamp her image. We become friends. She helps me find
love. Hill arity -- hilarity ensues and jazz hands. Your character's
quite Bette Midler, that's how you played her. I will take that
comparison all day. Have it! Denise played Paulette up until you
started, I guess. I took over from Denise. You didn't fancy doing the
show at the same time? Not really, doing eight shows a week together
and going home and be husband and wife would be a bit of a nightmare.
Let's talk about work! And then, you know, it's nice to have two

it before you went in? It was first for me. We had a coach to help us
out as well and we would would tweak odd words. I just listened to
JFK's speeches, because you have to do a semi-decent Boston accent.
Plus, amazingly, I met Lloyd Grossman who is originally from
Boston and he gave me some tips. That's a true story. Where did you
meet him? I let him doing a TV thing and wanted to be him, because
he is the most amazing person in the history of amazing people and I
asked him to do a Boston accent. What were his tips? Just do it well.
I could have done that. How is your back though, we were talking
earlier on the show. The bend and snap. It's my neck, it's not the
back for me because I am actually quite bendy, makes me popular. It's
a neck thing for me. It's all the way down and throwing it back that
I end up - that flick on the end. Does it work for men? I can't give
it away, I wouldn't try. You gave it a good go earlier. You didn't
flick up quick enough. Show me. you get up I will show you. We will
drop a cue card on the floor. at that. Go on then. Down the front.
And then back the other way, push the chest out. That's more koala
than snap. Whatever! Do it well. don't care, just do it well. Lee,
back to you. You came to ppre-Lens in 2007 on Any Dream Will Do. You
were in musicals before that, it wasn't a sudden rise to fame.
Fan tomorrow of -- Phantom of The Opera and auditioned for the TV
show and it took off. You won and pulled Denise van Outen. How did
you feel? At the time I just, I don't know. What do you mean, you
don't know, you must have been walking down the street, phoning
all your mates! He is going all bashful. Let's have a look at a
Lee, you have already established yourself... Can I ask you a
question. Let me talk first. Can I ask you a question, is that
lipstick you put on his photo there. Is Denise looking for Joseph or a
husband, we are not sure. I am totally in love with you. I have
already kissed your picture. You could be Joseph.
I think you have more than the role of Joseph.
That's quite sweet that. It's funny, because we laugh and
think that our daughter in a few years will see how we met, it's
brilliant. Never could have predicted that, it's mad really.
Was that the first time she told you she loved you? I was so into
the show and getting through it. It was crazy, a few months later and
we had a drink and things took off. We have another good clip here.
Last time you came on we showed a picture of you asking Boy George if
you could go to the toilet. It's always a constant joy for me that.
You weren't an adult by the way, when she did that. It wasn't last
week! I was three. On Saturday Superstore. We have another clip
where you are flashing your knickers. What's new! Natalie,
behave. So showbiz. Who was scarier, Boy
George or Mike Read in those glasses? Oh, man. Sweet times.
long are you in Legally Blonde for? I am there for a year, so until
next March. You are going to be shattered. You know what, it's good
because everybody's really nice and it's a really good part and the
audience love it. The Savoy is your local, what's not to like, let's
face it. When I went it was like hen nights everywra. -- everywhere.
A lot of straight couples as well. Straight men love it because they
can be camp for two and a a half hours and go well, I sort of like
it, but I am not sure. Lee, you are there until September. October 1st.
Well worth seeing. Lee and Natalie are going to stay for the rest of
the show to cook with Angela so you can tweet them or Hurts or e-mail
us via our website if you have any questions. Don't forget to let us
know your name, please. Still lots to come, including cocktails,
gadgets and all of this. Jazz's mum gives her Pink
accessories for the car in Small Teen Big World. They are very nice.
Age will's cooking spinach and ricotta tortelli. And The Pranker.
Adam and Theo have joined us for some cooking. You cook a bit.
cook desserts, though. That's the way to a girl's heart. It must be,
because I only cook main course. They like chocolate and sweet stuff.
I don't cook really. I have five or six meals I can do on a rotation.
What do you eat on tour? First of all, what do you have on your
rider? It's always the same, bread and cheese, sandwiches. Crisps as
well? The international signature dish is ham, cheese... Cheese
sandwiches. What do you cook? Fish stuff. Fish pie. What is his
cooking like? It's all right. him up. Adequate. Adequate is fine.
How important are desserts for you as a chef? As a chef you need to
know because it's a finish to a meal. I asked Richard this last
week, is dessert an afterthought and he said no. He is right. It
shouldn't be an afterthought. It's not something I like doing, I have
a great guy at work. You need to understand it, because it's
scientific. Why do things rise and baking powder and that sort of
thing. Simon says it's about the science and main courses is about
the flair. What are we making? You need to start mixing that,
please. If you could put some liqueur in there, not too much.
It's safe, you are fine. Be quite firm. About two thirds in there and
a nice mix there. When you are in Eastern Europe do you ever end up
on telly shows there? Yeah. I made sushi in Japan. I looked like James
Bond. I had a kimono on and stuff. Do they translate as you go? Yeah,
they're very early. I am happy my board is higher than his. Nothing
competitive about you two. OK. We have a tweet here. You have
travelled a lot, what's the most strange thing you have eaten and do
you know how to cook, we asked. The strangest thing you have eaten?
had pig intestines in Taiwan. It tasted a bit like chicken skin, and
vile at the same time. What do you eat in Russia and stuff, what do
they eat? Fish and vodka. Borscht. Fish and vodka, and herring.
winter when it's minus 30 or something you need a little bit to
keep warm. Do you like travelling around the world and tasting
different different cuisine? I love it. Japanese is great, if I had
known that I could have done a little bit of sushi for you. Where
are we with this? A lot of eggs going in. Four eggs in there and
flour as well so it doesn't curdle. Keep going. He thought it was the
best job. That's it. Perfect. Use that one. Sorry, I have just got a
bit on your jacket. I am going, it's over! Fold that in smoothly.
Excuse me, Tim. Just like that. Basically to get the air in and not
overwhip it. Like that. You can do that. Do you want to put the rest
in, put that in there. Great, sharing a bowl. You keep mixing.
Teamwork. Vanilla and milk in here. Do you spend most of your time
living out of suitcases? I lived in a hotel for eight months. Various
hotels, like Alan Alan Partridge. I didn't have a house and I was in
and out of bizarre hotels. I started to go completely mad. When
I got a house I was like why hasn't anyone done my bed? Why is my
shower jel in massive bottles? I can't handle it. You can always get
yourself a wife, they do those. are nearly done. I am glad everyone
ignored that comment! Would you ever do Eurovision? You tried to do
Eurovision, didn't you? We tried to write for it. When Blue got it here
we decided to write one for Russia, but we got declined because it was
unpatriotic for a British act to write for Russia, which is great in
a way. Are you fans of Eurovision? I am more intrigued by it. Ever
since I was a kid I have not got the idea that you could judge
music... Someone's decided this song represents their whole nation
and this is the song they're going to compete with other people. I
find that fascinating. It's when people get disappointed and upset
because you haven't done well and you have hardly any points. Yet,
it's just a song. What does that taste like? Good that. You can use
it. You can drink it, that's fine. So, Eurovision.
You are really going for the James Bond thing. I find it fascinating.
Something about it, not sure what it is. The best thing is when I was
a kid you put subtitles on Teletext and it has the lyrics translated.
What is the music like in Russia, I imagine it to be techno, I don't
know why. They like metal a lot and rock. We did a gig in middle of
Russia, near Siberia and the last band that had been was Deep Purlle
and Joe Joe Cocker. This is lined and we put a layer of the mixture,
a later of the amaretto and more sponge on top. Which was better?
had more work to do, to be fair. More to mess up probably. Are you
saying Adam is your favourite? are going to get me in trouble
today. I can't believe you are picking your favourite. It's not
true. I am going to have to give him a
bigger slice now. Sorry, he is mine as well. You can do the last bit.
get to sabotage. A sprinkle of sugar on top. With your hands, like
that. Beautiful. Loving that work. That's art. The best part of the
I feel like God in winter. That will go in the oven for an
hour, on gas mark three. A low temperature, until it comes out,
nice and firm. Cooked to perfection.
We'll put this - be very flash, put it on a nice cake stand. Then we'll
take that over and slice a few pieces for you. OK? It's not
something you'd think of cooking at home - a cake. You would? I'd never
do a cake. Would you do a cake? don't do anything other than
sandwiches, so, no. That's all you cook is sandwiches? A bit of
tomatoes on toast. You know! I would like you to all start
tasting that. You can all dig in. What's this?
This is a little bit of creme fraiche. Sour cream.
We will run out of plates here. can share.
I'll share with you. That is love wrapped wrapped in a
justice, wrapped in a dream. Really nice!
Thank you. Really nice. Really good. Coming up, Wayne's American-style
cocktails, we have must-haves and they will cook the final dish. What

That was DJ Pied Piper. Can you Guess the Year? Early 90s. Was it?

States inspired cocktails. I have been over in New Orleans. The first
shot I'll do is.... What did the competition entail? Did you have to
make one, two, three cocktails? Throughout the year the judges
nominate the best hotel, the best bar. I was up for best bar mentor.
It is a big award to get. They had Audrey From a club in New York. It
is nice to have the recognition and get the nomination. For me it was...
And you got a badge. It's not all bad. This drink, 1888, basically it
is called a New Orleans Fizz. Half and half. You have put four
things Lemon and lime juice, half and half, egg and cream. One of the
big parties they were serving these. The bartender had two cows outside
in a field and they were milking the cows fresh. Wasn't it passure
rised, Wayne? Straight from the belly!
Do you chill it on ice? We fluff it up to get the egg white, break it
down. I think I'm going to like this. I quite like the creamy ones.
Orange extract. A nice mixture there. Then we load it up with a
good double measure of gin. Does that smell nice? A nice big long
pour of gin there. Orange flower. It is what they called many years
ago in America, mix orange and sugar flower. Then give it a good
shake again. Chill it down, so it's nice and
cold. That is good for bingo wings.
exercise. This recipe is from a friend in a bar just off German
Street. It should be a cooling, refreshing summer drink. Soda water
goes in first. Summer drink with milk - it's weird. It is cooling,
because of the egg white and everything else, it has gone fluffy.
It is a popular one, President Roosevelt used to love this. It has
become popular again. The first taste of anything is with your eyes,
apparently. According to all the experts. That is not doing it with
my eyes. I'm with you, to a point. White Russian, even though I love
them. When you first look you think, it's milk. It is so refreshing,
creamy and citrusy. It is like American soda. That is nice,
actually. It doesn't taste like it looks. You have to get the texture
of the drink right. It is called the refresher. On a summer's
evening, in New Orleans, nothing like one of those drinks.
This one is from New York. Kind of prohibition era. This is a
recipe from a friend in New York. Lemon juice, egg white. It is weird
because it tastes like citrus, but it looks like milk. It is still
creamy. This is my favourite drink of all time.
A classic whisky sour base. What I like about this drink, during
prohibition is they discussed drinks by using sugar, throw wine
in to balance out flavours. Fluff the egg white.
That is quite potent though. you starting to feel it.? There was
a big slug of gin. This is a New York Sour. You pour
it over cubed ice. A nice red wine like a claret. What they do at a
bar in New York, that is where you go through the phoneboxes, they
float port on top. You go to, Simon has been there, you go into a
telephone box, is that right? into a hot dog I can of course. Go
into a phonebox, dial in, the wall opens and you go into this speak-
easy bar. You are only allowed in if you know the code. If we mention
you would we get in? You could mention him, but you won't get in.
A lot of bars are doing this again. It is wonderful to have the balance.
It is rich. It is fruity. It has the balance of the wine with the
lemon. That's nice, isn't it? stunning drink. I prefer that one.
The classics are coming back again. Good. If you want to make these
American-style cocktails, the recipes are on our website:
That is so good! In the last part of Small Teen Big World Jazz
learned to drive in a specially modified car which helps her gain
more independence. Here we go. new car has been specially adapted
so I can see over the steering wheel and reach the pedals.
No! Sorry! Oh, go on then. You have Have you seen the seat? Yes. I have
noticed... This will take you back and forward. If you want to come up.
Wow! Three main manoeuvres, mirror, lipstick, go!
When I actually sat in the car it was like a different person. I, a
whole different world of opportunities opened up.

pink, fluffy dice. Secondly, this is a safety feature. These are
gorgeous. Oh, my goodness. What are these? You know how we have to have
our straps below us. Do you like see the last part tomorrow at 9 on
BBC Three. Now it is time for some things at the weekend and our
retail expert Nikki Dean is here to tell us about BBQs and the outdoors
and what we can do to entertain ourselves. This looks like a
regular flower pot. Shall I do the honours? It is like
the transformer of BBQs. It is made with ceramic steel. You can grow
herbs in there. We have basil in there. If you want coriander.... We
have some video of this. This is our version of the Naked Chef. It
is Johnnie - today's producer, who is out there. For some reason cook
ing in the nude! Of course, we don't recommend that.
You might end up grilling something you didn't mean to. You might get
fat spat on your skin. A novel way of doing it. That is �99. It is
cool. It is quite expensive, isn't it? It is dual-purpose and the
beauty of this is, when you are not using it, you can leave it out. It
will not get rusty. It is cool, dual-purpose. This one, the daddy
of BBQs. It is lightweight. It comes in pink and what are you
giggling at? Can you see him in the background.
Natalie is about to come over, wearing a gadget. We also have some
footage of our Naked Chef as well. Really easy to use. Push the button.
Away it goes. You have your gas cylinder here. What is he doing?
Flipping over his burger, grabbing hold of his sausage. He needs a gym
membership. Actually not in bad shape, is he?
OK. Here they are. We are like superheroes.
Come Friss Boy. You have been practicing this.
Have you reverted to childhood here? It is amazing. Look at our
fab assistants here. This is the zero sword and mask. It is a little
bit of fun. What is that sound? Oh, it's my career going down the
toilet. Never! You will be cast as the next superhero. The mask is
just for fun, a bit of novelty. Lee is wearing the Grillslinger
Utility Belt. You have the the tongs and the knife. What is that.

gorgeous Emma in the garden. This is totally waterproof, the speaker,
it's got 150 foot wireless range. As long as these two lines here

There is your slushie. Taste good? Sweet. If it's an - sweet. If it's
an adult barbecue you can get crazy with the alcoholic drinks as well.
How much is that? �49.99. This is a Fat Boy Beer Keg. In the winter you
can pop a brew in there. It keeps hot things hot and cold things
cold? No flies on you, Tim. Finally. I am going to move over here.
got to hit the other way, Natalie. One of you has to go back-handed.
Do it for the Mancunians. I am not very outdoorsy! This is the

sturdy base. Put your back into it. You can put water or sand in there

you very much. As always, Nicki, thank you. If you want more
information on our gadgets you can e-mail us via our website and we
will get back to you with all the details. Here's another serving of
the new style Jeremy Beaden, Ross Lee, who winds up unsuspecting
members of the public in The Pranker. Can you hear what I am
saying? Trampoline. Octopus. Can I use the bathroom really quickly. I
Are you all right? Yeah, I am just having a quick bath. You are
joking! You can't! Give us five minutes. No, stop! Give us five
minutes. I am sorry, pal, this can't happen. If I want to buy this
house, right. No, no! I want a shower and all. I am sorry, I can't
allow this. I want to test the bidet. They're not going to know.
am sorry. This can't happen. How do you think... This is their towels
and all. Sorry, you are going to have to get dressed. This is
something else for me. I have never come across anything like this
before. Right. This is all new. I have never actually done a viewing
where someone's helping themselves, it's like they moved in. If this
goes on much longer I am going to have to call someone else. Who are
you going to call, GhostBusters? I am going to get in the bath, do my
hair. I don't want to lose you, Chris. You have lost me already.
You can catch the whole of The Pranker next Friday on BBC Three.
Lee and Natalie, welcome to the kitchen. You are going to be
cooking Angela's final dish. What is your cooking skills like,
Natalie? I am really quite good, I am not going to lie. Brilliant.
opposite actually. I want to cook well but I have no time to learn
properly. Does Denise do the cooking in your house? It's a bit
equal. I guess she does more than me. Favourite dish, Natalie? I like
to cook lasange or Spanish-type chicken, I have a saffron obsession.
What are we cooking? An Italian dish, tortelli, and fill it with
ricotta, spinach. It's like ravioli. We are going to roll this pasta out
which I have done already. Lee, go through the process quickly?
When you are rolling it out you need to do it reasonably quickly
because it can dry out. When you are making it you are just kneading
it and it's 100 grams of flour to one whole egg, it's a simple recipe
and use the 00 pasta flour and free range eggs and it's not as
difficult as everyone thinks it is. Lots of people are put off making
their own pasta and buy the ready made stuff but with a machine it's
straightforward. When you do it a few times, yeah. Natalie will tell
you. Do you make your own, Natalie? I have done, yeah in the past. I
lost, you know the attachment that can attach it to the worktop, I
lost it and that annoyed me a bit because it's easier when it's
attached. You are right, it's easier to have the attachment.
you use pecorino instead? She does know. We were speaking at the
beginning about your Italian grandmother, she used to make pasta
herself without machines. Probably years ago. When I made it with her
she definitely used a machine. I would do all the rolling. Lee's
mixture looks awesome. You are a natural, you don't realise. I am a
good stirrer. Natalie, remove that cling film and we are a bit
generation game. In that recipe you can adapt, if you want more
parmesan, or or spinach. Take a nice spoon of this and then do
walnut shapes on the pasta. It is like The Generation Game. If you
make fresh pasta, how long can you leave it in the fridge before you
use it? I would say a few hours, if it's a filling like this, or you
can semi-blanche it in eyed water and store -- iced water and store
in the fridge. Move them a little bit nearer you, perfect. Beautiful.
OK. So you are making the parcels here. Yeah and now we are going to
mix them all together. You two must have to eat quite a lot to sustain
the energy you need for the show. You were talking about the dancing,
it's full-on. Yeah. What type of thing do you eat before the show to
make sure you have enough stamina? I am a big fan of chowing down,
like a big bowl of pasta, steak. I eat breakfast and eat late on
before the show and sometimes I might have a snack after, but it's
rare. You don't want to eat too much and be sick. You should have
seen their legs, Angela. Seriously, I had leg envy. So, we have skipped
a bit. We call it egg wash, lift up the bottom bit and flip over. What
you need to do is hand in the flour, she is ahead of the game this one,
and squash out the air so there is no air there. Are you glad that
Natalie is doing this bit, Lee? Yeah. This is a dream. Superwicked
lady chef. They look really good. Then use the little cutter here and
cut them into nice little squares like so. Look at that. She's a pro.
Put them on there, Natalie. Lee did mix it all very well. There we are.
So, then you chuck these in boil boiling water? Indeed. We will go
straight in there. They're perfect. Straight into salted water. We have
had lots of Italian food on the show today. Meatballs and tortelli.
I always thought these were tortellini. Each region pronounces
them different. It's all quite - you know the Italians, they're like
the Welsh, Scottish and English, everyone is patriotic. Everyone
wants to do their little one. remember seeing you on the show
last time, Natalie, and you were saying you were thinking of doing a
baking course, did that happen? didn't because my fella is sa
ridiculously good Baker, he is useless at 90% of other things, but
he makes bag -- bagels and stuff. Does he make you a packed lunch?
Yeah, and then I throw it away and get a McDonalds. Shall we go over
here. Any sauce for the tortelli? little bit of butter, pepper and
freshly grated cheese. Come round here guys. I will pick out all
Natalie's so we can eat those. doesn't take long. They're so fresh.
Once they're up to the surface you are just cooking them for about 30
seconds. They've helt, -- held, Natalie. As Angela dishes up, it's
over to Tim and Hurts for that Deja The year was 2001.
You are joking! I got it right. Well, not really. I have some
tweets coming in. James says you are from Manchester, guys, so what
team do you support, are you City or United? I am a red. I am a
Middlesbrough fan. Middlesbrough! That's where I grew up, just
outside Middlesbrough. They had the glory period of when I fell in love
with it and then it kind of... was an amazing time. How do you
think United are going to do this season? Do well. He has been busy
with the chequebook Alex Ferguson. A tweet here for you, tphaltly --
Natalie, from Amanda, how did you feel about Two Pints coming to an
end this year, because it was ten years. I felt positive about it,
the last series we did we probably said we are probably too old to
keep doing this. Once you reach a ten-year mark it's working and in a
few years they might get us on the zimmers. Lee, what is that like?
Really nice. Are you guys going to break America? Have you tried it
yet? We went there once in the summer to a festival, but we have
been so busy and with Europe and stuff. Hopefully one day. There
must be one -- that must be one of the plans. Wear tracksuits and big
gold chains and change the image. A bit of rap. That will suit you down
to the ground. Lee, how is your Japanese coming along ahead of your
tour? I am doing 12 dates in Japan. What are you singing? Songs from
shows that I have done and I have a third album as well, a few songs I
have co-written. Have you sold out over there? Sold out Tokyo.
The One Show's Alex Jones stands in for Louise in hosting this edition of Something For The Weekend with Tim Lovejoy. And as well as Legally Blonde stars Natalie Casey and Lee Mead, top chef Angela Hartnett is cooking up a storm in the kitchen.
