Emergency Questions

Rich Wilson

Do you ever get confused with *another person with the same name as guest*?

Constantly, constantly. *RH names another.* Uh, the yachting guy? Yeah, I do know of him. No, I’m not googling myself, thank you. *RH names another.* Uh, no. I think there’s a lounge singer/comedian out in American that’s got my name as well. Yeah, yeah; he’s smashing it.

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?

I saw, in the Tate Modern, it was a single bed, but it was made out of the metal that they make, uh, service hole covers, in the road. So it had the writing on it like that. I would love to have that. I’d just put it in the spare room and then when people stay over I’d say, “No, you’re up there.” See how long it takes them to come say, “Do you have anything else?” So there’s that. Yeah, I’d have that.

What’s the least impressive thing you can spend a lot of money on?

Shittest thing you can spend on? Blimey. That’s a hard one, isn’t it? Because I’ve spent – having kids – I’ve spent a lot of money on some absolute shit. Pokémon cards, when they came out. Yeah, they came out and they were, like, ten quid a packet. I remember saying to my son, “No.” And he ended up with a whole folder full of them. No idea where they’ve gone. No idea. They’re in the world somewhere; they haven’t floated away. Apps as well, for games, or the add-ons for games. My son, like, with the Playstation and things like that. [Unclear] And they go, “Oh yeah, I need an app for that.” And you go, “How much is that?” “That’s twenty quid.” But there’s nothing to see. Yeah, so yeah, kids. That’s a lot of money on something that’s a bit shit. Although I did this, you know when you get sticker books? So you get sticker books with football and things like that and we just went Batman – I think one of the Batman films came out and I got them the sticker book but when I was a kid I used to fantasize about having a whole box of stickers and just spending the day just putting the stickers in. And so I went off, and I knew someone working in a news agency, so I went, “Have you got any?” And he went, “Yeah,” and he gave me a whole box. And I took them home to the lads and like, “There you go, boys.” And I was talking to my son recently and I said, “Do you remember that sticker book?” He went, “Yeah, yeah, yeah.” He goes, “You sort of ruined it, Dad. Becaue you’re supposed to go to school and do swapsies and it’s quite an adventure.” You came in and “plop” ruined it. Well, yeah. There we are.
