Hairy Bikers meet the Tellytubbies
My fare who I picked up midday Sunday from Lancaster railway station, turned out to be an exhausted but still cheerful Dave Myers, the locally based half of the famous Hairy Bikers.
He was on the last leg of his epic journey back to Roa Island all the way from Singapore, wow! no wonder he was tired. He had been over there to a glitzy promotion for the show on BBC Worldwide channels which are now screened over there. Despite only being in Singapore for a whistle stop tour of only a couple of days, the boys managed to fit a lot in a short time. Dave told me of meeting up with the Tellytubbies, who were also there to promote their show which is a big hit over there. So much so that Dave tells me he was amazed at the sight of grown men wanting to hug the Tubbies everywhere they went. Dave and screen sidekick Si King ended up going out on a boozy night out with the tubbies and Extreme Survival star Ray Mears.
The mind boggles at the thought of what a strange get together that must have been, but as Dave said "it was a good laugh and well worth the hangover"
