On set with Jamie Oliver

Back in September, on a windy, brisk day, Phil and I headed to Southend-on-Sea to film our television debuts, and more importantly hug and stare at Jamie Oliver.

IDAHOT 2017

Today is IDAHOT day; International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia & Biphobia. A day that my workplace is 2000% behind.

Vegetarian nights

Not to be mistaken with Vegas nights.

In a bid to be healthier and lower our chances of a heart attack, once a week Phil and I have rolled out vegetarian night. We’ve also implemented fish night to go along with it. We are meat eaters, proper steak, chop and sausage lovers. So the break, and eating halloumi or fish with a salad and sweet potato is a welcome respite.
