Holiday Time

I have finished filming today, and I am going to have a short break from tomorrow. Can't wait for my 2 weeks of doing nothing!
I just want to thank everyone involved in making this series of IDEAL. This has been the most enjoyable series that I have been involved with. Johnny Vegas has become a great friend, and I really admire him as an actor. The rest of the cast have been fantastic, but we would be nowhere without Graham Duff who writes it brilliantly.
So, thank you to Gill Isles and all at Baby Cow Productions and everyone at BBC Manchester, not forgetting the crew who work incredibly hard to get the best out of us all.
I'll be back after my short break.

Filming and Charity!

Hi all,
I've been having fun on the set of "IDEAL." I can't tell you the story line, but needless to say, it's well up to the high standards that have been set up to now. I think that this is going to be the best series so far.
Now, to the charity bit. The Royle Family's Ricky Tomlinson has asked me to be part of his annual charity show at the Liverpool Empire on Wednesday, 17th March. Various charities will benefit from the proceeds and it will be a great night out. This year, it will be a Country & Comedy Show, and will feature Raymond Froggatt, Kevin "Curly Watts" Kennedy, Michael Starke, Crissy Rock, Me and many others. Tickets are available from the box office.
Finally, The "IDEAL" cast and crew will be taking on a team from "Corrie," "Emmerdale" & "Waterloo Road" in a football match in aid of Sport Relief. It will be at Man. City's training ground on 20th March. I will post more details when I get them.

Take Care,
