We went to the Irish Open - and only got marginally drenched

It was the biggest event of the year - so far - and we were there, soaking up the bracing North Coast air and huddling for shelter beneath our giant golf umbrellas. Admittedly, some of the feebler Elm Housers did grumble a bit about the amount of huddling that had to be done. But this is...

"I was first like : Jesus! LARRY! Then: oh...

Here's wot we made in Spain

It was touching 37c when we started filming the second half of this as dusk fell over the Med. Cast and crew showed extraordinary fortitude to maintain their cool whilst bopping away to the wonderful Japanese Popstars. Yes, it's a tough game this.
