Yesterday morning Shirley and I watched a morning TV show we had never seen before - "This Morning" hosted by Rylan Clark-Neal and Emma Willis. It is a chatty, upbeat "magazine" type programme with a generally light and smiley mood.
Now, why on earth should we be watching such a show? Mmmm... one or two of the more perceptive blog visitors will have guessed already and I am sorry if this is becoming slightly tiresome - our son Ian was on the show with his "Bosh!" partner - Henry Firth.
They chatted with Rylan and Emma and in the studio's kitchen area produced a meat-free chilli and cauliflower buffalo wings in batter. Timewise, it was all pretty pressurised but Ian and Henry managed to pull it off and came across as cool cats - The Bosh Boys.
After the live show they travelled by cab to Harper Collins - their publishers. They had a few jobs to do - signing six hundred copies of the cookbook and finalising arrangements for their forthcoming promotional trip to America.
It's a hard life being the father of a celebrity chef. Thank you for your forbearance and understanding.
