Captain slow

It's pretty clear that Top Gear needs an overhaul. The whole format is starting to look as limp and tired as Ron Jeremy at the end of a long working day. Too many stunts that bear absolutely no relation to motoring whatsoever and too many films of Jezza in a 4x4 gushing over how rough and manly soldiers are (is there anything you'd like to tell us J?) are just a couple of the problems.

But how much should you mess with a successful product? Well on a show where two out of three of the presenters have become cartoons of themselves you have to hand it to May - he possesses an easy manner and charm that is refreshing.

Any doubt can be dispelled watching this clip of him in suave action on Gordon Ramsey's show. Marvel as he effortlessly makes Ramsey look like a noisy fool. Like they said about another James who used to drive a Bentley "Men want to be him, women want to be with him"

When the dish is taken to the "blind tasters" at around 1 min to go... my sister in law is sitting on the left hand side.

She said that if she had known it was made by that scruffy bloke, she would not have eaten it...
And that the whole F Word thing was rubbish! 12 hours sitting there, not allowed to drink because you were not allowed to go to the toilet etc...

I had to slip out of the recording for Man to Man with Dean Learner a few too many beers before the recording started.

A young lady wearing a headset wasn't too happy about me leaving, but when I outlined the alternatives she conceded the point.

and... If he ever reads this, and Clarkson does decide to come out sighting a predilection for soldiers, I will hold you personally responsible and will never forgive you.

Ramsey telling May only a real man could keep down some rotten shark choriso before promptly hurling the whole lot into an orange bucket. Class.
