Speaker 1:

What is your passport photo look like? Have I seen your passport?

Speaker 2:

What my new one?

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

It's bad because I got it renewed recently on a fast track application. Long story which I'm gonna shorten down. Mike Scott had to counter sign my passport photos.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

And he counter signed some pretty beautiful passport photos. I looked at some headshots done. Yeah, pretty much. It was kind of like that, but it looked like I was a Vogue model.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

And then I get to the passport office and realized, well, I didn't realize. But they said oh no, you only need to do one of them, counter signed. I said, well, your website says two, and so I had to redo them. In the booth at the passport office it was like almost 40 degrees, yeah, so it was boiling. Everyone looked disgusting.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I actually stopped off before coming in, went to the co-op, got myself a little meal deal.

Speaker 3:

Did you?

Speaker 1:

really that's what we do here. I got this. I went for something different today because I fancy something different. I got some pasta, hot pot, pasta, sausage roll and a ribena Mix it up, why not? Yeah, but today, for the first time, I saw stocking on the shelves mince pies. How many mince pies? It's October, what, what?

Speaker 2:

are they thinking?

Speaker 1:

I thought why don't we have a co-op? Irresistible, all butter pastry, luxury mince pies this is gorgeous.

Speaker 4:

Wow.

Speaker 1:

Just to kick start the month. No, what a treat.

Speaker 2:

Jack. Well, happy Christmas. Cheers, cheers. Your mince pies have just reminded me of something, and we're going to jump into this very early in the episode, because we were given two food stuffs.

Speaker 1:

Does that mean we're going to gratitude corner? Gratitude corner.

Speaker 2:

This week. Jack, I'm grateful to Debbie, who accosted me after my set with a box of after rates, my favorite way to get accosted. She's been listening for a while and we've all enjoyed having an after rate in the dressing room.

Speaker 1:

So, debbie, we're grateful for you, and I'm a little bit annoyed, henry We've not got it in the room with us right now. That's true. But we have been sent a sweet hamper from the Performing Arts Database.

Speaker 2:

Yes, I found a parcel waiting in the past room. I've got no idea how long it had been there for, so they may have been thinking we've been ignoring them, but we've only just opened it and it was addressed to the both of us. Thank you, and the card says love the podcast. A treat for you and your guest while recording soon to be the number one podcast in Hopton on Sea regards the Performing Arts Database.

Speaker 3:

Speaker 2:

So Performing Arts Database, we're grateful for you. But to all of our food suppliers this week, we're grateful for you.

Speaker 1:

We're so grateful for you. Something else we're excited for we're going to talk about, because we're going to play a little teaser for.

Speaker 3:

Yes, we are.

Speaker 2:

The spooky sails Terrific. It's an incredible moment. Shall we play a teaser? I can't get my words out today. You can't. Shall we play a little teaser? Go for it, hit it.

Speaker 5:

And it is said that at certain times of night, if you are up there, you can see a monk walk across the hall. Can you do that breath again for us closer so we can hear you again? So why is it misty by the window? Who are you?

Speaker 2:

I am positive. Something just touched me. Wow, that was terrifying.

Speaker 1:

That was. I'm shaking.

Speaker 2:

I mean, I haven't heard it yet, but I'm shaking. I've not made it yet, so I don't know what it is. No, and I just know it was creepy, october the 27th coming out.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

That is terrifying. I think we can have like a watch party maybe.

Speaker 1:

Listen party.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, just really have the same ring to it.

Speaker 1:

Shall we get into the bulk of this episode, Jack let's do it For days featuring guest Chloe Driscoll From Potter's. Five Lakes On Lakes, yes, who used to be here at Hopton, honestly. But there's something I'm very, very excited for in this episode that we'll talk about at the end.

Speaker 2:

Like we said, a big moment. Oh, we've already talked about it, we hinted at it, but shall we find out if we can find Mining?

Speaker 4:

Class.

Speaker 2:

Press Play, press Play, jack, I just saw you moving the email sheet.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, we need to address this. Whilst we're here Because it really made me laugh. I already know what you're going to say Right, okay.

Speaker 2:

Well, I apologise, Henry. Thank you. I'm glad you know my name, do you?

Speaker 5:

know what. I woke up the next morning and I was like did I send that email off because I was so tired? And then I looked back at it and I was like Harry. I was like why did I write Harry?

Speaker 2:

Who is that so? Yeah, I'm sorry we asked all of our guests to send a questionnaire back to us so we just have an idea of their answers and especially now we're at Five Lakes, we aren't too sure on what any of you are going to say.

Speaker 1:

No, you could say absolutely anything. We don't know. But yeah, you start. The first two lines was hey, harry, and that was you even had to type in the email address, you know.

Speaker 2:

Literally right above it. I can see my name right above that. I actually wrote.

Speaker 5:

Henry and then for some reason was like hi, harry, yeah, apologies, I am. It brightened up my day, that's all right, chloe.

Speaker 2:

It took a lot for me to come into this room today and face you, but I'm here now.

Speaker 1:

Because we've had I mean, we obviously just talked to you about it just before and we've had a bit of a nightmare today Because we came in. We arrived at Five Lakes last night quite late, set up our studio in a very nice looking you know sort of nice view, and then this morning what happened, henry?

Speaker 2:

The angle grinder came out and the rally carts went zooming past.

Speaker 1:

Not the most ideal setting for a podcast. So we relocated to a very lovely Tea room, the Vista Suite. So this is where usually we'd have afternoon tea, so there's lovely ornate light fitting on the wall.

Speaker 2:

I know I think they have a similar one in the IV Asia. Have you been to the IV Asia? I don't have that money, but that would be nice. Well, it's a.

Speaker 1:

But I think, because we've had a bit of a nightmare in general I'm sure we'll talk about this in the introduction, but I think generally this is down to the curse of Johnny Mack. Now you've obviously been working here at Five Lakes with Johnny Mack. Have you witnessed the curse of Johnny Mack?

Speaker 5:

I love Johnny Mack. Oh, isn't he just the best.

Speaker 1:

He is.

Speaker 5:

Honestly, he just literally brought a bit of Hopton to. Five Lakes yeah.

Speaker 2:

And we will need that back at some point.

Speaker 1:

We will, we will, but no, we had him on a podcast he's someone and talked about his famous curse and we bumped into him last night and as soon as we bumped into him, everything went wrong to us. It was all going so well until we ran into Johnny, we went to our Because obviously Five Lakes fully booked this week, so we had to stay at the travel lodge down the road.

Speaker 2:

Oh, he did. I don't know if we can say that we had to stay at another accommodation down the road?

Speaker 5:

Yeah, but then you had Malden not called Colchester.

Speaker 1:

Malden and they were fully booked. They had overbooked, so we, you know yeah.

Speaker 3:

They just.

Speaker 1:

I'm going to say it because it shows how successful Five Lakes is.

Speaker 2:

We had two reservations for rooms at this budget hotel chain and we arrive and the man sat at the reception says we have a problem, and I thought he was going to kick us out.

Speaker 1:

We have a problem. We have a problem on the list.

Speaker 2:

To which he says there's only one room left. And then Jack, quite.

Speaker 1:

He didn't actually phrase it like that. To begin with, I thought there was no rooms.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, we've got no rooms. But Jack then asked there's a quite sensible question. But we've already made a reservation. So is that not kind of how this works we reserve it, so you hold on for us, and we paid for it because that's how that works. So he then said no, it's still the same, we don't have any rooms. But they had one room of which, upon finding out that I would be sharing with Jack, and then walking into the room to find the pillow was actually stained.

Speaker 1:

It was a bit of a. There were three beds in that room as well, actually, which was quite impressive, but one bed just wasn't.

Speaker 2:

I decided I would not be bunking with Jack. Have you had any bad hotel experiences?

Speaker 5:

I mean, yeah, I have. When I went to Brighton, I went there for like a dance competition and we stayed in like this Airbnb and honestly, it's probably the worst place I've ever stayed in my life. To the point, there was like a hole in the bed, like on the side of the bed, where, like mice had been like nibbling away at the bed and then I had someone's old burnt toast on the side of my bedside table. It was that bad.

Speaker 1:

I literally paid another load of money to go somewhere else. No wonder there was mice if there was burnt toast.

Speaker 2:

I was going to say you were sleeping on a mouse hole, yeah literally yeah, it was awful.

Speaker 5:

Well, no, it wasn't Brighton.

Speaker 1:

Oh well, we've just been slagging off Brighton.

Speaker 5:

now I'm sorry, no, I have been Brighton. It's Blackpool. Blackpool, that's the one I mean. It's an easy mistake, they're all the same.

Speaker 1:

I mean they're completely different parts of the country, both seasides Seaside and both again would be. So I can see where we made the mistake there.

Speaker 5:

I told you I'm really bad at talking.

Speaker 1:

No, no, it's actually geography. You're terrible at that.

Speaker 5:

Yeah, true, that's why I'm a dancer. I sing on yeah.

Speaker 1:

Now we've got you a drink. I mean, you're most way through your drink now You've gone for the hot chocolate. Yes, With lots of whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles. Why did you choose that? Anything off the all-inclusive menu? Why did you go for that?

Speaker 5:

I personally love hot chocolate, yeah, but I do feel like pot is hot chocolate. You've got to get it right as well. It can't be too watery. It can't be too rich. It's just perfect every time and it's got to have a lot of whipped cream and the ratio has got to be right as well. Like enough chocolate sprinkles, enough cream. It can't be more cream than chocolate sprinkles, but they always get it right and I love it. I always go for it.

Speaker 1:

You've got that down to like a fine art.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I can't remember if in season one I spoke about the Italian hot chocolate in Kensington.

Speaker 1:

Probably I can't remember it, but that's probably because I stopped listening to it.

Speaker 2:

No, this is going to freak you out, chloe, this is going to scare you. So I was about to have my haircut I do it sometimes. I've already stopped listening to him, I'm sorry at this point. And outside of Larry King there was this Italian cafe and I thought, oh, that's that looks really nice. It was like one of these kind of artisan cafes and they were doing this hot chocolate and they said, oh, it's an Italian hot chocolate. I thought that's great, it'll just be lovely, flavoursome and rich. And it came and it was literally like a chocolate ganache.

Speaker 2:

It was like yeah, it was like a gloop, but like warm.

Speaker 1:

It was chocolate that was hot.

Speaker 2:

Like kind of drinking chocolate custard, and it was really. I had to pretend to like it because they were kind of staring at me. They charged me 10 pounds for it as well. I was thinking. I don't know what I'm.

Speaker 1:

Are you sure you ordered a hot chocolate and not a dessert?

Speaker 2:

No, it was a hot chocolate, because it came in a mug and it was warm and it looked like hot chocolate, but it was like, literally it was a solid. So I then had to ask for it to go, as I think we've all had this experience. You know, when you ask for something to go, then you just discard at the next, so I think that sounds really nice. Not if you're wanting a hot chocolate. This is the thing.

Speaker 1:

If you're expecting one thing and you get another.

Speaker 2:

Saying I wanted some chocolate custard on a really cold day. Fine, but it was like dawning on spring, spring was breaking. Do you eat out a lot when you're here?

Speaker 5:

A lot. I mean the guys do. We love going out. I mean Maldon Promenade is lovely, we're going out in cold chest, or a lot. I love food.

Speaker 1:

So you've pushed your favorite meal that you have very regularly.

Speaker 5:

Favorite meal Something with mushrooms in it. I love mushrooms Just anything with mushrooms, anything. So like mushroom linguine, mushroom omelette, mushrooms on toast, I just, I love mushrooms.

Speaker 2:

No, you lost me when you called me Harry, and now you've lost me again with the mushrooms.

Speaker 5:

I don't understand why people don't like mushrooms.

Speaker 2:

I can't deal with fungi on my food.

Speaker 1:

It's very good for you actually, though, aren't they? You're a fungi.

Speaker 2:

Thank you, Chloe. You're winning me back again.

Speaker 1:

So obviously at the moment you're seeing a dancer. You've talked about previous dance competitions in Blackpool that you don't want anyone to think about because of the mice hole. So what was your sort of first encounter with you know, sort of your profession? What made you sort of become?

Speaker 2:

a the world of dance.

Speaker 1:

The world of dance and song.

Speaker 5:

Do you know what my mum's always said? Since I can't remember, I could like speak. I started singing, as soon as you know, from ABBA. Mother Says I Was a Dance.

Speaker 3:

School. I was literally about to quote.

Speaker 5:

ABBA. That is me Like. From the age of three I went to ballet school, dance school, started singing and then I went to a performing arts school, senior school, to act at an audition to get into senior school. So I did that and then I went to college. But I've literally done it all my life since I can remember. And yeah, along the way I've done loads of things. I've done a little bit of TV work like I've done in hide and house. Hide and house. It's like you hide a celebrity in your house.

Speaker 2:

Hang on, hang on. You said that so casually. Yeah, hide her in her house. Were you hiding the celebrity in your house?

Speaker 5:

Yeah, miling, class.

Speaker 2:

No way Yep.

Speaker 5:

I didn't know who she was when I was younger and they were like oh your celebrity's coming in and I just looked at her and I was like you thought she was already hiding.

Speaker 2:

I don't think so.

Speaker 1:

I mean, I don't know if I'm allowed to say that Now I know who she is.

Speaker 5:

Oh my God, I had Miling class in my house.

Speaker 1:

Famously from sort of Galston, great Yarmouth area. I don't know if I'm allowed to say this, but Miling class used to date. My uncle and I used to remember going like having Sunday like close dinner, so she, I also had Miling class hide in one of my houses as well.

Speaker 2:

So was Uncle Jenkins hiding in your house as well. Who knows, I don't know for a minute.

Speaker 1:

I don't know what the timelines are on that, but I just really. I just before know she dated him before, so am.

Speaker 2:

I the only one who hasn't had Miling class hiding in my house.

Speaker 5:

I think so and Manny's contact her.

Speaker 2:

She might still be hiding in there.

Speaker 5:

She could maybe have just not found her.

Speaker 1:

Maybe you could have named her, yeah.

Speaker 2:

So where was she?

Speaker 5:

So we had to do like games and the parents couldn't find out that we had a celebrity in our house.

Speaker 1:

So your parents didn't even know.

Speaker 5:

No.

Speaker 1:

I mean yeah.

Speaker 5:

It was a great show. It was great, it was a great show.

Speaker 2:

Okay.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, so where was she Talk us through this? Because this is brilliant, I mean.

Speaker 5:

Where did it start? So we'd have to do loads of games like we had to like dress up in fancy dress and we'd have to do like a maze around the house and my parents would be in the house but they don't know. They basically had to crawl behind them and do certain tasks and we'd get an award.

Speaker 1:

I feel like I remember something like this yeah.

Speaker 5:

It was quite a big thing back in the day.

Speaker 1:

What sort of challenges did you remember very much about that?

Speaker 5:

I know we had a food challenge. I remember my friend had to eat I think it was a gherkin. She literally had a panic attack because she was like, had a fear of gherkins and I had to eat some like fishy food.

Speaker 2:

It was actually quite and how did eating the fish food help you to juice where Miley and I want?

Speaker 1:

No, no, so you were trying to hide Miley right.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, and you hiding from the parents? Oh right, yeah, so you knew where Miley was the whole time.

Speaker 5:

We knew where she was the whole time. And there'd be loads of things that we'd got to pop these balloons. I remember being in the bedroom like popping all these balloons trying to find an award or something and it would get something. But then like if my parents would come back and Miley was there, she'd have to hide and there was just loads of challenges. They probably knew I'm not going to lie, but it was fun. Being a child, I felt like we did so well with my neighbours. Yeah, it was great fun.

Speaker 1:

And I'm going to find this online.

Speaker 5:

I kind of want to watch this now. No, you actually can. I mean, I don't know why. I've just said that.

Speaker 2:

Well, you know, we're going to put a clip in now.

Speaker 1:

We're going to find a clip of Miley in class hiding in your house.

Speaker 2:

What we're also going to do is we're going to try and get in touch with Miley and we're going to ask her if she has a memory of hiding in Chloe Driscoll's house.

Speaker 1:

Maybe don't mention my uncle. I don't know, I don't know how to end it.

Speaker 2:

Well, I might say, you have the history with one of our co-hosts, jack Jenkins.

Speaker 1:

Did you ever hide in? Yeah, maybe.

Speaker 3:

Maybe you were able to come and hide in Henry Patterson's house Just a Go full circle.

Speaker 2:

I just feel left out now. I just want Miley in class, hiding either in my house or on resort.

Speaker 5:

Yeah, we should get a hydra on the Zolt we could play hide and seek with mine in class.

Speaker 1:

I think that would be quite amazing.

Speaker 2:

I think this should be a new activity. If Ian Wall is listening, you know what to do.

Speaker 5:

It may take years, at five, like I said, to be fair. I don't know. I mean, I keep getting lost, I keep getting lost.

Speaker 1:

We obviously we've set up. We mentioned about setting up the studio and moving the studio and we messaged you to just let us know whether you or let you know whether the new studio was new. I have no idea. I have no idea.

Speaker 5:

I even went to reception and they were like oh, I'm not sure.

Speaker 3:

It's so big, honestly.

Speaker 5:

It's huge and it's all got different names for all different rooms and yeah, it can be confusing. Sometimes I do need to look at the map still.

Speaker 1:

Who knows, my link class could be here. She could be here already. Did you do any other sort of interesting bits and pieces then? So obviously you had a celebrity hiding in your house.

Speaker 5:

Yeah Well, when I was nine, I got into the West End and I did Joseph.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, which I think is fantastic.

Speaker 5:

It was great. I did it for about 18 months, which was a long time.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 5:

I think, even mom was like do you want to do another six months? And I was like no, I think I grew up a bit, but that was really fun yeah.

Speaker 2:

What theater was that in?

Speaker 5:

Adelphi Theater.

Speaker 2:

Very nice.

Speaker 5:

And do you remember they did the show I can't remember what it was called and it was. They did like a Dorafi got to find a Dorafi. And then they had to do like find Joseph, and it was Lee Meade.

Speaker 2:

I remember watching that. Yeah, was it Any Dream Will Do Was the name of the thing.

Speaker 1:

Yes, yes, any Dream Will Do. Was that the first one that they did?

Speaker 2:

They did Any Dream Will Do the Nancy one.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 3:

What was that I do anything yeah.

Speaker 2:

Was it Over the Rainbow?

Speaker 1:

Over the Rainbow, I think was the Dorothy.

Speaker 2:

one Was Dorothy first, I think which was the one with Jesse Buckley. Oh, then they did. How'd you Solve a Problem like Maria?

Speaker 5:

Yeah, yes.

Speaker 2:

And now they're doing. I have a Dream. Yeah, no, who was Jesse Buckley going for? That was Nancy, I actually don't know. And then the was.

Speaker 1:

Did I figure.

Speaker 5:

I watched that one Was.

Speaker 2:

Connie Fisher Maria, sorry, I'm really nerdy on this, wow.

Speaker 1:

I was a bit of a nerd when it comes to this sort of thing. I don't even remember that I didn't.

Speaker 2:

We shouldn't have, because we don't have really no, because the Palladium cast recording from 2006 is Connie Fisher.

Speaker 1:

Which makes it sound, I think, more sad, doesn't it? That's more sad that he knew that bit of information.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, that's pretty impressive. And then Lee Meade was Any Dream Will Do.

Speaker 5:

Yeah, he was yeah.

Speaker 2:

And you were then there and I had a big crush on him. Did you?

Speaker 5:

Yes, oh my God, I think I remember because he had to wear like that towel around him and he was all like you know, or abdarp and Abdarp, Abdarp you know if that's the word. But yeah, I had a massive crush on him and then I remember him. It was his last show of us and he was like everyone was crying, so I didn't want to see him go.

Speaker 2:

You didn't want to see the towel go.

Speaker 1:

They wanted to see the towel go. Yeah, they wanted to see it.

Speaker 5:

But to the point. I remember I was crying and he gave me a hug. And then I said to my mum when I got home and I was like Mum, I got a funny feeling in my tummy when Lee Meade hugged me.

Speaker 1:

Oh yeah, Did he have a conversation with you?

Speaker 3:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

I was going to say.

Speaker 5:

Everyone had a crush on him.

Speaker 2:

Rumour has it that Mylion Klaas was hiding his dressing room the whole run.

Speaker 1:

Not in the towel. You did obviously mention about cruise ships as well. Yes, which cruise line were you?

Speaker 5:

in. So I worked for a German ship. It was called Aida.

Speaker 1:

Ah, yes.

Speaker 5:

Yes, and I was a lead vocalist on that, which was fun because it was a bit of a challenge. I had to sing a whole song in German.

Speaker 1:

Oh, I can imagine how did you do that. How did you get over the?

Speaker 5:

Well, they didn't teach us German. It was basically, they taught us how the words were Like the phonetics of it. Yeah in the songs. So I was singing stuff that I had no idea the meaning behind it.

Speaker 2:

Can we have a performance of this song? A bit of German, just of the German.

Speaker 5:

In honesty, I don't remember a lot of it.

Speaker 1:

You could make it up right now because we have no idea.

Speaker 2:

You know that we need to retain our five-star rating for season two, and if you don't do this, people will be disappointed.

Speaker 5:

We might go back down to 4.5 again. I apologise for any German listeners, because this is probably completely wrong.

Speaker 2:

We only have Bulgarian listeners.

Speaker 1:

Albania. We're big in Albania. Dubai now Dubai.

Speaker 5:

Yes, so this one was like a dance number. It's called Daha Tatharotas Ferd.

Speaker 2:

Oh, I love it already. Yeah, Daha Tatharotas Ferd.

Speaker 5:

And it was like there was all movements with it I can't remember it, it went.

Speaker 3:

Daha Tatharotas Ferd Sing a song again and had me to sign them. I was like I'm going to fly away, I'm going to fly away, I'm going to fly away and I'm going to fly away with a lot of it. Yeah, something like that. No way.

Speaker 5:

But they loved it. They absolutely.

Speaker 1:

And that was a dancing one.

Speaker 3:

you said yeah, we had to do like I mean we were doing a little bit of dancing.

Speaker 1:

Obviously, you can't see it at the moment.

Speaker 2:

Well, I've just thought. Ben from our Hopton Theatre Company. He speaks German, so we can bring him into this conversation now and he can tell us Translate what you, he was searching you about that no idea, and it's probably all wrong, whatever I said.

Speaker 2:

We now cut to Ben Carruthers, who will enlighten us. Ben Carruthers of the Policiest Company, you're about to go on paternity leave, but just before, you do, trying to go on paternity leave. Yeah, but just before you go, I've cornered you in the dressing room, literally when you're holding your car keys in your hand.

Speaker 4:

I meant you can hear them Jingle jingle.

Speaker 2:

I have a bag strung over my shoulder. What bag is this it's?

Speaker 4:

a, it's a.

Speaker 2:

German bag. Is it for a German?

Speaker 4:

well Ben, it's from a supermarket called River, but most English people would read it as Rewi.

Speaker 2:

And speaking of German, you just heard Chloe Louise Driscoll from the Five Lakes Policiest Company sing a beautiful German song.

Speaker 4:

What does it mean? What does it mean to hear Chloe sing a beautiful German song? It was delightful.

Speaker 2:

No, what does it literally?

Speaker 4:

mean.

Speaker 2:

What does it? What does it translate to?

Speaker 4:

You played me ten seconds of it and I wasn't really listening. That was Do I have to hear it again?

Speaker 2:

No. So the answer was you don't know.

Speaker 4:

You, I actually wasn't really listening. Somebody has a, somebody has a read something and something about flying and the fly goes.

Speaker 2:

Can you just make up a meaning based on the facts that you've just found, so we can tell Chloe what it means?

Speaker 4:

Is she singing it without prior knowledge?

Speaker 2:

Yeah, and then she's going to sing it again and with the meaning behind it. So can you just make up?

Speaker 4:

Just bear in mind when you do like a direct German to English translation, it just does not work Like word for word.

Speaker 2:

Of course Can you just make up a story, Ben.

Speaker 4:

Make up a story. Okay, you have a red face because you're blushing, because you have a strange attraction to a fly who you've been watching for the last three hours nesting on your windowsill. You think you have a connection. The fly doesn't. So the fly went zoom, zoom, zoom and flew away. Ben Krothers, that's me. Thank you. I can't even say you're welcome because I don't know what that was. Have a good baby, can you say?

Speaker 2:

have a good baby. Yeah, what are you meant to say? Have a good birth.

Speaker 4:

I mean, I'm not doing the work.

Speaker 2:

Well, that's what I meant, so have a good.

Speaker 4:

I'm going to be present.

Speaker 2:

Have a good presenting of the birth. What can I say? What is the official greeting? It doesn't like Merry Christmas or you know you could Happy Sondheim day, is it?

Speaker 4:

Well, it's nobody. Nobody respects that. I bet you do Me, yeah. A younger version of me might have done.

Speaker 2:

You definitely grab a parasol and start singing Sondheim to part with George.

Speaker 4:

I don't by the blue, purple, yellow, red water. Oh, this is so great.

Speaker 2:

This is a dream come true. Oh, Henry, had to sit down for that one I did. Thank you, Ben. Can you tell people to enjoy the rest of Chloe Driscoll's interview please?

Speaker 4:

Enjoy. Are you pointing me in the middle of this? Yeah, you're literally in the middle of an episode. I do apologise, people, I'm so sorry. I would say go back to season one and listen, but there's honestly no point.

Speaker 2:

Most people have already listened to you, ben, honestly.

Speaker 1:

Obviously, right now we don't know what it is.

Speaker 2:

he's just said no, thank you, Ben, that was very interesting.

Speaker 1:

Just pretend that he said something really interesting.

Speaker 4:

Oh, wow.

Speaker 1:

That's all that was Wow.

Speaker 2:

Who knew?

Speaker 1:

That was. That was so interesting.

Speaker 2:

Did you ever think it could mean that?

Speaker 3:

No.

Speaker 2:

Will you ever sing the song in the same way again now?

Speaker 5:

I mean no, I'll have a meaning behind it for sure.

Speaker 2:

now, Now you know what it means. Can you do it again, but with the new meaning applied?

Speaker 3:

I can see it.

Speaker 2:

That was a lot more energetic. So it's going to be very bad if it was like about a puppy dying or something.

Speaker 1:

Well, let's hope not.

Speaker 2:

Because then that's going to be a really bad taste.

Speaker 1:

Small German shepherd, Not the shepherd, there was German like a Dastard. Yes, how long were you on with Aida the border?

Speaker 5:

I think it was about eight and a half months. Yeah, it was quite a long time, yeah it was and when did you go?

Speaker 1:

Where's the sort of the best place you went to? We?

Speaker 5:

went to.

Speaker 1:

After being around the Canary Islands, we'd go to the Azores which is like Portuguese islands, and I've never heard of them before the middle of the Atlantic, like you know.

Speaker 5:

Yeah, but you can only get to them by like a small plane as well, and it literally was like All by boat. Hawaii, but Well yeah all by boat. But yeah, it was really really interesting. I loved that island and then went to Africa, Cape Verde, which was beautiful. So yeah, it was just around there. To be honest, it was really, really interesting. I went to all these like little islands because, like the big ships, they can't go to a lot of ports.

Speaker 2:

Sure.

Speaker 5:

But because my ship was kind of small, but it wasn't small, so it could go to a lot more like unique islands.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I'll tell you the most boring experience I've ever had on a boat.

Speaker 1:

I mean this is Going along with all the rest of your experiences you tell us about it.

Speaker 2:

Thank you, jack. No, there was this island. It wasn't an island. So there was a part of Crete that was only accessible by boat and it was like a kind of port town. It was meant to be lovely, had restaurants on it. It was horrible. It was because everyone was one of these hidden gems, which wasn't a hidden gem because everyone knows it's a hidden gem. So I get there. We're on like a 45-minute boat from this car park that we've driven three hours to get to. It's already with four hours into this journey. I could have flown to some part of Africa by this point. And I get there and it's just this kind of strip of a port in the middle of some rocks, with a restaurant serving seafood no, I don't even eat seafood and a really busy beach full of tourists. It was awful.

Speaker 3:

Wow.

Speaker 2:

I just thought I'd share that with you, because I've never quite.

Speaker 1:

I'm not sure if it was just so boring that we were stunned to silence, or we just didn't have anything to say.

Speaker 2:

No, I just.

Speaker 1:

Because you weren't put as in. At the end of that story, me and Chloe were just looking at you going.

Speaker 2:

I'll admit that I didn't give a lot of room for comment on what I was saying or any real conversation starter, chloe, just but I just wanted to bookend the conversation with that story by saying I once went to a place. Well, I've never. I just don't think I've ever processed that that happened.

Speaker 1:

I went to I think about this the other day because I can't remember. We were talking about something and I went to Amsterdam. Always remember this we had an overnight in Amsterdam and we arrived there and I think I was working that evening. So you know when you just have one of those nights where everything seems to go wrong. So I got dropped off.

Speaker 2:

I was here last night. Yeah, oh, yeah, that's it.

Speaker 1:

I got dropped off in the middle of Amsterdam with this taxi right, and somebody had sent me their location and this was a good five or so years ago, so location saying terrible. I got dropped off in the complete wrong part of Amsterdam so I had to walk around until I found my friends.

Speaker 2:

I got there Were you having money thrown at you whilst you were on this walk.

Speaker 1:

No, but I needed it. I wish that people had.

Speaker 2:

There are things you could have done to get that money and I wish I had If you were in the wrong part of Amsterdam.

Speaker 1:

Because I wouldn't have been kidnapped if I hadn't.

Speaker 2:

What Well hang on.

Speaker 1:

No, I'm getting to that part of the story. So we arrived up with friends and we go to this bar and now in Amsterdam to use the toilet, you know when you usually have people in the toilets and you know they. You know no spray, no lay, no.

Speaker 4:

I'm only. We're not even gonna go all to that, or you?

Speaker 1:

feel your pair of pants and all that sort of. Who do you have in the toilet? Have you never come across a toilet man?

Speaker 2:

A lavatory attendant, maybe A lavatory attendant.

Speaker 1:

yeah, and they have like lollipops and sweets and aftershaves and things like that.

Speaker 3:

Have you ever come?

Speaker 1:

across that no, you've not been to those sort of establishments do you?

Speaker 5:

Do you know what I mean? Yeah, I know I get in clubs, sometimes as well, he's never been.

Speaker 2:

I have been to a club in Alton Broad, that's not quite the same.

Speaker 1:

There's no toilet attendant there.

Speaker 1:

But in Amsterdam you actually have to pay a euro just to use the toilet. Regardless, every time you go you have to pay a euro. Yeah, and I, because I'd just got off the ship and I only had my card. I didn't have any cash on me, so she wouldn't let me in the toilet and I'm like I just I need to go for a wee. So I came back down the stairs to meet my friends and one of my friends, david McCauley, had some money, so he went. Yeah, I'll come with you. I ordered a drink at the bar. He went up to the toilet, so I then went up and the toilet attendant wasn't there. So I went to the toilet. He left and at that point the woman came back and was like no, I've already warned you, you need to pay a euro. I was like my friend's gonna, and then she stopped me from leaving the toilet. She wouldn't let me leave the cubicle because I hadn't paid the euro. So I had to ring my friends downstairs to come up and bail me out of the toilet.

Speaker 2:

I don't know if I want to ask what you had to do to get out.

Speaker 1:

No, well, no, I had to just call for help. I felt like I'd been locked in toilet.

Speaker 2:

jail Was she I'm imagining like a quite a large woman. It kind of looks like mistrunchable.

Speaker 1:

Like a small angry version. Like frolin costs? Yes, exactly. I like that and she had, so they had to bail me out of the toilet and that night just went on from there. In the end I managed to get some change. We spent the night in this club and then I went to the toilet again, paid my entry fee and I made sure everybody knew that she was ripping me off. And then, as I came back down.

Speaker 2:

She was doing what to you.

Speaker 1:

We'd ordered ripping me off. We'd all ordered a taxi and I came back down and everybody from the ship had left, so I then got downstairs. They'd all gone home. I ended up walking home and then I made friends with some nice Portuguese people, and I remember drinking a bottle of wine on the way back to the ship. I had an adventure that night.

Speaker 2:

I bet have you got any holiday anecdotes or you know what's kind of your usual type of holiday?

Speaker 5:

I don't. I mean, I love like your all-inclusive holiday. I love going to Greece. I mean well, yeah, of course. Potters. But I do love a Christmas. I love the cold. I'm not really a huge summer fan.

Speaker 1:

So if you go on holiday, would you go to a colder place? Yeah, like I love city breaks.

Speaker 5:

And it has to be around Christmas time, like I've always gone away around Christmas because I just love Christmas. So as long as it's got something to do with Christmas, oh, hang on, wait a minute.

Speaker 1:

Number one fan of the podcast, celia Potter, has just dropped in no, come on. We're currently recording Stay away from microphone Celia.

Speaker 2:

One appearance on the rap party and suddenly I'm really sorry, chloe, you're fine.

Speaker 1:

You've just saved her from another boring story. Have you come to congratulate?

Speaker 2:

us on 25,000 downloads. I did, I did come to congratulate you.

Speaker 3:

Congratulations.

Speaker 1:

Thank you.

Speaker 3:

What are you working towards now?

Speaker 1:

Just making it to season two.

Speaker 3:

OK, that's probably.

Speaker 1:

We've got to get there first.

Speaker 2:

Just keeping our five-star rating. To be honest, it isn't.

Speaker 3:

Five-star. Yeah, yeah, got to keep the five-star rating, and what 50,000 downloads 50,000 seems achievable, yeah.

Speaker 4:

So I'm so sorry. That's all right.

Speaker 5:

It's much more interesting than I am.

Speaker 1:

We'll catch you at some point.

Speaker 2:

We'll see you in a future episode, Celia.

Speaker 1:

She just told us to cut that out. I don't think we will. We're not going to cut it out. If you were to hide Myelin Class anywhere on Resort, where would you hide her?

Speaker 2:

Well, what about in one of the lakes?

Speaker 5:

Yeah, well, it's actually got seven lakes here.

Speaker 1:

Oh, whoa, whoa, Whoa. Wait a minute. I know this is. I mean, this could be breaking news. This could be an all-exclusive. We can have to change the size.

Speaker 5:

I don't know if this room has it, but I haven't had time to actually count them myself.

Speaker 1:

Oh, so this is just a room.

Speaker 3:

This is yeah, it's seven lakes instead of five.

Speaker 1:

so it doesn't roll off the tongue quite as well.

Speaker 5:

No, it's seven lakes.

Speaker 1:

What is seven?

Speaker 2:

lakes. Seven lakes Sounds a bit like Seven Sisters Tams.

Speaker 5:

Link Station, no one's that. And then like Five Lakes, five Star, all Links, you know, one Star, five Lakes.

Speaker 2:

That's a mind of a marketeer right there. We were speaking about your holiday experiences. Some reason we got onto.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, you mentioned Greece as well as.

Speaker 2:

I blame Celia Potter.

Speaker 1:

Before we move on to Greece, what would you say is your favorite thing about a Christmas market?

Speaker 5:

I love Mold Wine. I really love Mold Wine.

Speaker 1:

What about Mold Cider? You've tried that. No, yeah, so as well as Mold Wine they now do. Mold Cider as well. It's just like warm cider. It's lovely. Are you a Mince Pie fan? You said you love food earlier.

Speaker 5:

No, I'm not, I've tried.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 5:

That's my only thing about Christmas that I don't like Mince Pies.

Speaker 1:

The only thing about Christmas they don't like.

Speaker 5:

That's the only. Thing.

Speaker 2:

Everything else, Everything else. I love that Eggnog.

Speaker 5:

Maybe not, so not the only thing about no, yeah, maybe not Mold Wine and Eggnog.

Speaker 2:

What about Christmas cake?

Speaker 5:

I can, yeah, I could eat that.

Speaker 2:

It doesn't sound promising.

Speaker 5:

It's not my favorite thing to eat.

Speaker 2:

I don't think you like Christmas at all.

Speaker 5:

I do, I do, I do, I do, I do.

Speaker 2:

I do Christmas pudding yeah.

Speaker 5:

No, I actually don't.

Speaker 2:

All right.

Speaker 5:

Okay, so Christmas crackers.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, okay, we've found one thing that A Yule Log, a Yule Log.

Speaker 5:

Like the chocolate log.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, a Yule Log, Of course. Yeah, chocolate Brussels sprouts.

Speaker 5:

Yeah, I could eat them, Okay, yeah.

Speaker 1:

What's the worst Christmas gift you've received?

Speaker 2:

Oh, what a Christmas gift, don't say who sent it. Well, you can if you want to, if you want to throw some shade, To be honest, I can't remember getting a bad Christmas present.

Speaker 5:

I remember my brother. Oh, my god you remember your brother he's the worst Christmas present you've ever seen.

Speaker 1:

No, no, no, yes, I got a younger brother.

Speaker 5:

Yeah, I've got two brothers, Um, but my brother once literally got a book but like loads of books for Christmas and my mom and dad like wrapped every book individually. So it was just like seemed like more, and then you could just hear my brother in the background winding up my other brother going like another book and another book. Yeah, I felt sorry for brother that Christmas.

Speaker 2:

I'll tell you about experience I had. This is a story that you can react to by the way. Last year actually, and she'll know it was actually my mother bought me and this was very I've got to say it was very thoughtful, I mean really thoughtful. But she bought me a wall advent calendar of which she had it was like loads of pockets so you could fill it yourself and she very sweetly filled this wall advent calendar for me for me of individually wrapped gifts.

Speaker 2:

I thought, oh, wow, this is really lovely. I mean, that's amazing. I opened the first one and it was some original source shower gel and it was like coconut. Oh, this is nice. It was like a mini travel size. Then I opened the next door it was another original source shower gel.

Speaker 1:

You didn't get 25 shower gels, did you?

Speaker 2:

No, because then there was also some hand lotion that I think probably was also came in bulk, because it was kind of alternating between that and what she told me she'd done was completely underestimated. That an advent calendar is like 24 gifts and that's quite a lot of gifts to buy.

Speaker 1:

She probably could think about five gifts.

Speaker 2:

It was about that, and then they just all stopped alternating and eventually I just kind of stopped opening it and then let it stop for a few days, then open all of my original source. So if anyone needs a travel size, shower gel.

Speaker 1:

What is an original source? Because that sounds a bit strange, I opened all of my original source.

Speaker 2:

They're like the sources in S O U R C, you know, like the natural, cruelty free vegan shower gels. I'm not cruelty free. No, I am cruelty free, but I'm not vegan.

Speaker 1:

Henry is famously pro cruelty. He hates animals.

Speaker 2:

I mean I'm not vegan, but no, I was super grateful, the thought was there, I just serve the animals. Yeah, it was just a lot.

Speaker 5:

Delicious melt, nice for Christmas.

Speaker 1:

You know I did. I think what we're going to do now we're going to take a break from the hard hitting questions. I'm going to play a bit of a game. Okay, because if you've listened to season one, which you said, you listened to Roxie's episode you may have heard this, but we like to play a little bit of a game called the ABC quiz.

Speaker 2:

Abc stands for anything but correct, correct.

Speaker 1:

What we're going to do is we're going to ask you a series of questions. This is a bit of a game Fire quiz, but you only have to answer in wrong answers. For example, if we ask you what color is the sky?

Speaker 2:

you could say aubergine.

Speaker 1:

You want to make it sort of fairly relevant. That is a color.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, no, I know it's on the Farren ball color chart.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, make it fairly relevant and you're not allowed to repeat any answers. Okay, we will also be giving you bonus points for creative answers.

Speaker 2:

It's worth mentioning. Last season we had a problem with the bonus points. I predict we'll have the same problem this season as well, but we'll see how it goes. We'll see how it goes, and it happened exactly by doing this, by doing episodes not in the order we released them in. So, yeah, so it begins again.

Speaker 1:

We obviously are not going to, we're not going to tell you where you come on the chart of the ABC quiz. I mean today, you'll be winning, you'll be yeah.

Speaker 5:

Well, yeah, that's good stuff yeah.

Speaker 1:

What is your name, bill? What do you hit a ball with in golf? An umbrella. How many lakes are there at five lakes, seven? Name an ingredient in the full English A pie. Name something you put on your head.

I'm going to give you, I'm going to give you one more question, because we like to do that, just as a thing, what would you put in a cup of tea?

Speaker 3:

Tonel.

Speaker 2:

A couple of bonus points through a couple of minuses on there.

Speaker 1:

Oh, this is it's very cruel.

Speaker 2:

No, there are, I'm sorry. So you answered 12 questions, which is pretty good going. So let's start with the negatives, because in the words of Aretha Franklin, we have to accentuate the positive.

Speaker 1:

And in the words of some of our shows, the only way is up.

Speaker 2:

In the words of most of our shows the only way is up. So how many lakes are there? At five lakes Seven. That's a correct answer, apparently.

Speaker 1:

I don't know. Disputably you had an. If you hadn't told us there were seven, yeah, you would have never had. We'd have given that to you so now we can't.

Speaker 5:

He's been a lot firmer this season. Well, let's hope there's not.

Speaker 2:

And also putting makeup on your head.

Speaker 5:

No, no hair. I'm going to put makeup on my hair.

Speaker 2:

Speaker 2:

We'll get rid of that.

Speaker 5:

Speaker 2:

Which takes you down to 10. But but Judge when. Do your bonuses first.

Speaker 1:

Speaker 5:

Where he was, like the one of the litter you know, oh yeah, my dog, martha, was like that. Yeah, his eyes are looking I don't know where, but that just makes him more special.

Speaker 1:

If you were to have, you had to stay on resort as a guest, then yeah, Hopped on on, say all five legs. How would you spend your time here? What would your day look like? Um?

Speaker 5:

okay, I see, so we'll get up and we'll go get the breakfast.

Speaker 3:

Yeah.

Speaker 5:

Because that's lovely. Every time I walk past it, I just get so, and you said, you love food as well. Yeah, I look at it and I see the buffet. It's all laid out. You've got the hash browns, the bacon. It's nice. Did you have it this morning?

Speaker 2:

I wasn't supposed to. I literally stole it. I went in and I ran up to the trophy room. This is when I discovered the angle grinder Right, because I sat down. I had my portable speaker, wachtong Classic FM, alexander Armstrong album of the week Nice, um, it was Finlandia. I was playing today Sibelius Just but just not, yeah, just not. Anyway, I sit down. They've scrambled eggs here, Jack.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, do we not have scrambled eggs at all?

Speaker 2:

Nope, I'm going to say it now. Of all the egg based dishes that we do not do at Optinon C, add scrambled eggs to the list.

Speaker 5:

After a little while, probably go to the spa. Yeah, go for a swim, go in the sauna hot tub, love it there. Um, and then, what spa treatment would you get? I do love, like you know, your neck and back massage.

Speaker 1:

Mm-hmm.

Speaker 5:

Can't be a neck and back massage, A relaxing one not like a sports one A nice relaxing.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, next neck and back. Many a time if I fall asleep during a yeah back massage.

Speaker 5:

It's annoying when they sometimes talk too much. Yes, and it's like it's very nice. You know it's lovely when I'm with you.

Speaker 1:

I went for a spa day the other day. You did.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I did. He looked so radiant when he came back. You should have seen him, Chloe. It was glorious. Where did you?

Speaker 1:

go. I went to Dunstan Hall in Norfolk, just out of Southern Orange, and, um, I went for the night but I so I went for the spa day. It had the sort of full body massage, but I was thinking while it was going on what is the ratio to talking and not talking Like? Is it awkward when there's zero conversation at all and you've just got this random woman or man rubbing your body, or is it less awkward that you have a full-on conversation?

Speaker 5:

Yeah, I think there's a limit, isn't there? I mean asking how the massage is. I feel like that's enough.

Speaker 2:

What are you doing next?

Speaker 5:

So then I'll probably go to the garden bar or the terrace, go outside.

Speaker 1:

What sort of time of year would you like to go if you had to choose any time of year?

Speaker 5:

Oh, that's a difficult one. I do feel like the summer here is lovely because we've got so much stuff to do outside and you know, we've got the rowing boats, we've got the archery outside.

Speaker 1:

Have you been on the rowing boats? I?

Speaker 5:

actually haven't. I've seen it and I keep saying to, I keep saying I'm going to do it.

Speaker 1:

Would you like to row or would you like to be rowed Rowed?

Speaker 5:

Yeah, I'm lazy.

Speaker 1:

What would be your alcoholic beverage of choice?

Speaker 5:

I love a glass of wine.

Speaker 3:

Yeah.

Speaker 5:

But then I'll just. I like any drink. To be fair, I'm not fussy when it comes to drink. I do love the Prosecco, yeah, wine.

Speaker 1:

Red or white. Yeah, what would you prefer?

Speaker 5:

It has to be red in the winter, white wine in the summer, or rosé.

Speaker 2:

Hmm, there's a drink I would like to introduce you to, oh no, which we? It was kind of the drink of choice at the season one wrap party. Brian Graves, who works at Apotheos Opsalency why are you laughing, jack? It's a serious podcast. Brian's Coconut Dream it's a really good drink, is it?

Speaker 1:

It's like a frozen pina colada.

Speaker 3:

Is it Not found a pina colada? What's it, we'll go to.

Speaker 2:

There's a theme developing of you saying you love everything and then actually it turns out that you love barely anything Like the whole Christmas conversation we had earlier. Then we have the dog breeds and now we have this.

Speaker 5:

Yeah, I mean my go-to cocktail would probably be I do like a porn star Martini with a bit of Prosecco on the side, but I am one of those.

Speaker 1:

It feels like you're giving two drinks for one then, isn't it? Yeah, because I take the Prosecco as a shot, I don't put it in the drink.

Speaker 2:

And I don't understand what they do. It's like you're cheating the system. Yeah, oh, I do put it in the drink, otherwise why would they give it to you?

Speaker 1:

I don't think anybody knows. If anybody does know the answer to that, keep it to yourself, because I like not knowing. To be honest, I think it's more fun.

Speaker 2:

I've found and I think this is genuinely interesting for our listeners who have been keeping up to date with the whole season. In episode one I drunk for the first time Of season one, like ever of season one.

Speaker 1:

And now he's recovering alcoholic.

Speaker 2:

And I progressed from the pink gin lemonade to Brian's coconut dream, to Malibu and pine apples to spiced rum and coax, and I recently had a few old fashions in a cocktail bar.

Speaker 3:

Did you really? Yeah, I'm very proud of you.

Speaker 2:

Jack is very proud and you've People have seen or heard my taste buds develop as time goes on.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I'm very proud of you on that one Thank you it's because I had a night A few weeks ago and I drunk many old fashions and they were really nice.

Speaker 2:

I had a weird rash the other day, sorry, sorry, that was a really strange.

Speaker 1:

I said it was like a therapy for him, but we don't need to know all of that sort of stuff.

Speaker 2:

No, no, I got quite drunk with Jack and Rosie and Robb Yves and me from the Met Police Probably shouldn't say that, but anyway We'll bleep his name out.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, just from the.

Speaker 2:

Met Police. There are quite a lot of them. Anyway, I had a few Spice Ramen Cokes by a few, I mean quite a lot in a very short window because the bar was closing. So they said last orders, should I be telling this story? Probably not. So I said, yeah, I'll have a few, and you know, we can just drink them throughout the night because we weren't ready to call it a night. And so they arrived. That's probably seven of them arrived. Double Spice Ramen Cokes. Wow, they were gone within the hour.

Speaker 1:

He's a quick drinker. He doesn't really. He's not been drinking for long. He doesn't grasp the concept of it. I did when we went out. Yeah, no, to be fair, you did, but that night. That was wasn't that on half, and after we it was the wrap party.

Speaker 2:

Anyway, a few very strange things happened to me that night, and one of them was I got this weird, just rash. It just appeared for literally half an hour, then it went away. If there are, if there are any doctors listening to this, because a lot of sophisticated people, someone who works for McLaren, listens to this podcast, so you know it's good Shout out to you McLaren.

Speaker 1:

Shout out to you McLaren.

Speaker 2:

We don't actually know his name.

Speaker 1:

We just call him McLaren.

Speaker 2:

Anyway, if there are any doctors who think I'm now dying, let me know.

Speaker 1:

You've said actually on your form about playing bingo yeah, do you love bing? Sorry, this is.

Speaker 2:

No, this is important stuff.

Speaker 1:

Henry obviously got quite aggressive and annoyed at you earlier. I promise not to do that. I'm just confused at the bingo thing.

Speaker 5:

I love bingo.

Speaker 1:

Why.

Speaker 5:

Why not you, I mean.

Speaker 1:

I have a it's exciting.

Speaker 5:

You might have the potential to win some money, yeah. So, that like you know, going to a casino and it's a bit like that you know, Exciting. Well, what's the event?

Speaker 2:

It's an adjective.

Speaker 5:

You drink and have got the part.

Speaker 1:

Bongo's bingo. Yeah, I can get behind that, but just bingo.

Speaker 2:

I'm not putting down an activity that we do at Hop. I know actually I am, but bingo. You know it's.

Speaker 1:

I have a certain opinion.

Speaker 2:

Tolerance.

Speaker 1:

Because I have to call bingo every day of my life.

Speaker 2:

I have to listen to him call bingo every day of my life. It's bad enough, yeah.

Speaker 1:

It's just a lot of really out numbers and sometimes I, like you, will notice this. If you come to Hopton, honestly and you, you see me, I just start daydreaming. If you were to sit down and watch a show, of any shows you've ever been in, any there's scene here or at Five Lakes or at Hopton honestly, which show would you choose to be the one that you watched, which would be your perfect show?

Speaker 5:

Well, when I was back at Hopton, we did a show which is very much Honestly. Honestly, it's very much like simply the best, because a lot of the songs are from this.

Speaker 3:

But it's called.

Speaker 1:

Around the World. Yeah, do you remember that I loved Around the World? It's Jack's favourite.

Speaker 2:

He gets very excited In my Perfect Break episode.

Speaker 1:

That was, that was my show I had chosen as my show.

Speaker 5:

Yeah, Do you remember it? It?

Speaker 3:

was very, very good. He gets so excited when people mention it.

Speaker 2:

It's a great show and I see it's better. A lot of numbers are from it. A lot of them are.

Speaker 5:

Because it is simply the best so Around the World. I think that is definitely the one I would choose.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, we're going to get into the main, not the main body, because I don't want you to think that we haven't started the questions yet. We've had that experience before we're going to get into the main interview style thing. There's a couple of quickfire questions, classic interview questions and some other quickfire ones. You can take some time with the answers, but the first thing that comes into your head is the answer that we want. If you were an insect, what insect would you be?

Speaker 5:

I would probably be. Is a butterfly an insect? Yeah, I'd be a butterfly.

Speaker 1:

You'd be a social butterfly. Yes, it all comes from a circle. I wouldn't be a wasp, because I.

Speaker 2:

Well, no one accused you of being a wasp, so that's good.

Speaker 5:

I can't get rid of them. Have you noticed? There's someone there, just.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, do you know what I read in the telegraph this morning? Asian hornets, hornets. They're the worst, they're the deadliest.

Speaker 1:

The only benefit I can think of of a wasp what, listen, near me, the only benefit of a wasp, I think is when you are outside and a fly comes near someone but they think it's a wasp and watching them freak out about it is funny. What was? And you can look for this one what was the last thing you put into Google?

Speaker 5:

Probably right move. I just like it. It's just my hobby just to look on right move. I just find it so intriguing. I'll put the max property in a certain area and I might just want to know how much they sell for what is the most expensive house in this area?

Speaker 1:

Off air. You mentioned that you was an estate agent for a while.

Speaker 5:

I was yeah.

Speaker 1:

Is that where you think this new Maybe? Yeah, curiosities come around.

Speaker 2:

Were you a good estate agent.

Speaker 5:

I think so I'd like to say so.

Speaker 1:

Did you enjoy that, though? Did you enjoy the estate agent?

Speaker 5:

Yeah, it was a very interesting job, just even meeting the people behind the door, just finding out their life. I always drive past the house and I want to knock on the door and be like what do you?

Speaker 3:

do for a living. I just want to know.

Speaker 5:

I find it so interesting, so actually being able to do that and finding out how they did it and what they've done to the house renovations as well, I didn't really work there long enough to actually see someone purchasing the house, renovating it and selling it, but that's just so.

Speaker 2:

Did you ever knock on door and say excuse me, is my lean class hiding in your house? No, I can't find her anywhere. And if you weren't an estate agent, is there another job you would do?

Speaker 5:

I would be a police detective.

Speaker 1:

Police detective.

Speaker 5:

Yeah, I'm so interested in all of that. I love murder mysteries, I love police programs, interceptors. Just want to find out.

Speaker 1:

I love a murder mystery.

Speaker 2:

This is a question we've always ended on in our podcasts. I know that you don't know us too well, but hopefully you've had some indication of us by now. If you were going on holiday, who would you rather take on holiday?

Speaker 1:

Jack or Harry?

Speaker 2:

Me Harry or Jake.

Speaker 5:

I think, to be honest, I don't actually understand a lot of things that come out your mouth, henry, so I think if I did go on holiday with you, I'd probably be quite confused.

Speaker 2:

We couldn't talk about dog breeds because I wouldn't get married there, we wouldn't know each other's names.

Speaker 5:

No, I think it's probably for the best.

Speaker 2:

Actually, for the first time, I'm withdrawing myself from this question. I don't want to go on holiday.

Speaker 1:

He will end up phoning you up about five months.

Speaker 2:

This is true, and try and convince you to change your mind. In the rat party. I will come to you and say excuse me, would you like to change your mind, because we'll have you back on. You aware of this. You come back.

Speaker 1:

We'll sort that, but she might not want to after this, if you're popular in the episodes you come back, but thank you very much for choosing me. So circle your name. You don't have to circle your name.

Speaker 2:

She chose you. She's so proud of that. I'm going to outline it as well. You don't need to do that, right? Well, we're big fans of AI here at Potter's Resorts both Hopton on Sea and Seven Lakes so we have put it through an AI generator all of your answers today and we've come up with your all exclusive job role is Jack. Would you like to be honest? Bingo Inspector? I think this makes sense. You want to be a police detective?

Speaker 1:

Yes, you like inspecting you were hunting for my line class.

Speaker 2:

You know you, you inspect a lot of things. You deduce. A bingo inspector is a very important role. We have bingo inspections regularly to ID people. You have to make sure their residents at Potter's make sure they're not under 18. Make sure they're using a debit card, not a credit card. So we do believe that you would and you like bingo? One of the only people yeah.

Speaker 1:

How do you feel about your new position? It's interesting.

Speaker 5:

I didn't know that was a position. Oh, it is yeah.

Speaker 1:

So you'll be working from Monday onwards. Lovely, we'll get your welcome pack in the post.

Speaker 2:

Any questions to ask us?

Speaker 5:

No, no, just start Monday.

Speaker 2:

It's always good to ask a question.

Speaker 5:

I'll be ready on Monday.

Speaker 2:

Just one more time. What's the breed of your dog?

Speaker 3:

Azushon.

Speaker 1:

Jack, what an episode. That was yes, and the question is where would you hide my lean class?

Speaker 2:

Gosh, I would hide her in the Zen garden.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

But like in a pot.

Speaker 1:

Do you know where I'd hide her? I'd hide her out here, outside the room cupboard studio, just tucked around that corner on the roof, yeah, or in that little tube or in our new studio, because no one actually has a key for it.

Speaker 2:

Oh, we locked ourselves out, so we were meant to be in our brand new studio today, but we don't have a key, so that would have been a good place to hide her, but how would you have gotten in? I should have seen Sean Smith.

Speaker 1:

And hopefully the next episode we'll be recording from our brand new studio.

Speaker 2:

Yes, and who is that episode with Jack Mark Brewer returns. He's back. The return of the Brewer. Oh yes, Did we come up with a wound to? I think we're going to call it wound to. It's going to be called wound to Mark Mark, but we were wound to. He's going to be going through our new job interview process and also just a bit of a catch up.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I think we just have a chat with him because we can stretch that out.

Speaker 2:

We can stretch that out as long as it needs to be, but I just think we need to keep on checking in with Mark Brewer just to prove he's alive, really. After all, he nearly died Precisely. So we will see you next week for that joyful event. So let us present the enchanting event that is the magic of Brewer.

Speaker 4:

Bye, bye.

Speaker 1:

Shall, I have an ad for a long time. Have a nice Scotch egg.

Speaker 2:

I love a Scotch egg. They invented the Scotch egg for me.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, no, I know you tell that story every time.
