Photoshoots, Royal Ascot and more!

I have been at Wallace & Co quite a bit this week, breakfasts, lunches and dinners.  There is a new wine list there as well which I am very pleased about and a couple of new dishes on the menu.  It just seems a bit difficult convincing people they can come in and have a drink as well, but you can you know, just sit down, and have a beer, a glass of wine and chat with your mates.

I had possibly one of the best photo-shoots I have ever had, it was for Weight Watchers.  At one point I was in a very sexy boat on the Thames, the next minute I was floating fully clothed on a Lillo in a heated pool.  My life, I ask you!

Wednesday was fantastic; I was a guest of my friend, Mick McGee to his box at Royal Ascot.  There’s a nice picture of me and my pretty girlfriend in the Daily Star and in the Star on-line.  What a great day.  I had 2 winners, it is such fun.  What I didn’t realise is that when the racing is finished, there is a band of guardsmen on a bandstand and there’s an hour’s worth of sing-alongs!  I didn’t leave Ascot until gone 8.

Then I had a few days working up in Scotland, near the famous old golf course of St Andrews.  It’s a new series on BBC2 will be coming out in the summer.  I can’t tell you anymore but I seem to be up in Scotland quite a bit lately.  I like it, I like the food, I like the people and I love the whiskey.

All eyes now on the British Lions, many of you may not know that I’ve actually got 2 rugby coaching qualifications.  We are rugby nuts in our house.  Come on The Lions!  Sorry John Torode, but we are out hunting wallabies.
