I recently backed a very worthy Bennets Insurance campaign to try to get a compulsory motorbike question as part of the driving test. At the moment the questions are randomly chosen and the driver can pass without being reminded about bikes. I think this should be the bare minimum – I would of course rather everyone spend a day on a bike to become bike aware and generally a more observant license holder, but I’m aware that we must begin somewhere.

It’s has been a busy few months. As well as the above I have also engaged in some filming for 5th Gear, The Wright Stuff, The Alan Titchmarsh show, Daybreak and Llve with Gabby. I enjoyed hosting the House of the Future at The Ideal Home Show this year. It was the centrepiece for the entire event.
I also had the honour of meeting Prince Charles who was quite lovely and very friendly and finally I had the opportunity to show off my well practiced curtesy! We enlisted some fun technology, my particular favourites were the new Renault Twizy electric car and the Transport Pod which I found to be the ultimate in relaxation gadgets. Lee Baldry was on hand to present all the daily shows and the show was a great success, hurrah!
So too was Gadget Show Live. It’s always a huge pleasure to meet people who watched the show and of course to work live is the best experience…any old monkey can do take after take on a pre record but living on your wit, live, is where it’s at! With 3 shows per day we pretty much lived in the Supertheatre all week, but I met some wonderful people and had a lot of fun, so lovely to meet you if you were there!
