Cool Kids
I was hanging around with the greatest radio show of all time. The cast of that – they’re here behind me right now, if you’re watching the video. Just voted for. I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue – or as they call it, ISIHAC. Many of them are dead, but even so they are very, very cool

Emergency Questions

Has a ghost ever seen you?

Yeah. Loads, loads of them. All the time. *RH asks whether KSB believes in ghosts.* I do, yeah. *RH states that ghosts aren’t real.* What? * RH makes reference to the actors in Ghosts pretending to be ghosts.* No, no, no. They’re dead. They’re dead. So why, after we finish filming, do I never see them at the pub? When I invite everyone to the pub, how come I’ve never seen them? I do [but] no, I’ve not seen one personally. Just, you know, spooky stuff. I was quite scared of dolls when I was younger, but in order to – So I slept in the spare room at my – Well, there was a small room at my nan’s, when I wasn’t at my mum’s, and I didn’t like to stay in that room because it had some dolls in it. *RH shows KSB the Ally ventriloquist dummy.* Oh, that’s horrible. There’s absolutely no way I’d stay in a room with that doll. But  used to say that I was afraid of the ghost in that room because I didn’t want to say I was scared of the doll.


This episode was live-streamed via Twitch, with RH and guest in each of their own homes due to COVID-19/coronavirus.

Twitch background: The cast of I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue.

Ghost emergency question revised as KSB is often asked the standard ghost emergency question.

At about the 45-minute point, KSB has to leave briefly to fetch a charger for his computer. During this time, RH does a ventriloquist bit with Ally.
