Apparently, TV cameras put another stone on you. You might want to buy wider TVs!

Boris will be there. I hope he's in a more welcoming mood, he's barked at every dog in Cumbria this weekend.

We'll be flying the Danbury flag, Jason. Metaphorically speaking, obviously. In reality we'll have a Brazilian flag (and a Yorkshire one of course)

Good Lordy. Have just found 'the caravan channel' - I hope you're watching and taking notes in case there's any tricky technical questions. My first piece of observation - you'll fit in well if you wear beige!!

Beige is too bright for me, I need something more muted...

I'm not allowed to say too much as we've had to sign a confidentiality agreement. The crew was with us for a couple of hours doing background interviews and filming in Absinthe. We even did a Top Gear type tracking shot on the M6 (which was actually moving for once!).

I reckon they are going to be long days in Sat & Sun. We're worn out already.

I will say that there was an incident with a sparrowhawk but I can't say any more in case they're going to use the footage.

Sounds interesting!

I take it you didn't do all the trials today then?

No, the competition semi final is on Sat/Sun. If there's too much practical stuff I'll be phoning a friend, please don't go out!
