Who thinks there might have been another ghost in his dressing room just now. He’s not sure.

I was crossing the Meadows just now. There were some guys playing five-a-side football against each other. The team that were wearing the yellow bibs…

Have you ever seen a ghost?
No. But I don’t know. I don’t think so.
If you could take one item from any museum or art gallery – and you’re allowed to take it home with you – in the world, what would you take?
Oh my God. This is only going to show my complete ignorance of having never really been to a museum or an art gallery. Uh, they do a really nice, like, apple cake at the National Portrait Gallery. Have you had it? It’s really expensive. It’s, like, a fiver. And I’m like, I’m not having that, but if I could get all of that, I’ll take that. *RH mentions being interested in a dinosaur.* That’s a brilliant idea. Well, when we go to the science museum they’ve always got lots of little funny little things you can press buttons that make noises, haven’t they? *RH suggests taking home the lunar landing module.* God, no. Well, my kids would love that. Yeah, maybe. I don;t know if we’ve got space in the house though.
If you had to invent a fifth season, which two other seasons would you put it in between, and what would happen in it?
I would definitely have a dry season. No, that’s rubbish. I wouldn’t have a dry season. I would have a – Christ, that’s a tricky one, isn’t it? I – do you know what? I would quite like – no, wait. Can I decided where the season is? And it happens between… Oh, Jesus. It happens – and how long is a season? *RH suggests three months, but notes that JB can either lengthen or shorten it.* I’m going to have to shorten it. Okay, so, I would like to have a snowy season, but it’s never too much snow, but just enough snow to make everything look really pretty. But not enough snow that everything stops and we all hate the public transport, and each other, and work becomes a nightmare. But just enough snow that when we go out we’re like, I feel good about myself and my life. And everything is like a little – Like, you know when you see like a little, you know, Christmas? We’re always told that it’s snowing and there’s never snow. I think there should just be a little bit of a snowy season, just before Christmas, and then it fucks off. And then at Christmas we can be as depressed and disappointed as we always are over that one week. There’s never a white Christmas. It’s actually depressing that every time you watch a show about Christmas it’s always snowing. That’s why I won’t let my children watch The Snowman. I don’t think we’ll ever have snow. Maybe we should have a boating season, given that the rising sea levels. And then we all have to get, like, catamarans and – what are those boats where you go along on a… What are they called? We could – punting and kayaking… *RH notes that you would need a long pole for punting.* Really, to reach the bottom. Just keeps going down. *RH asks JB if she’s ever seen Waterworld.* With Kevin Costner? Yeah, it’s one of the worst films I’ve ever seen in my entire life. Did you enjoy it? Don’t watch it.
Recorded at the New Town Theatre.
