Please Welcome a Man
Who was hoping to have a bridge named after him, sort of.

Acronym Modification

Cool Kids
I was talking to the original Paul McCartney the other day – the one who died in the car crash in 1966. Not the rubbish replacement who wrote Get Back in three minutes. The prick. The real, the real Paul McCartney would have taken his time over that and made it good.

Guest Best Known
As Wheatley in Portal 2, although it turns out that is a really big deal. So he’s also known as the man with the broken leg in Run Fatboy Run.

Emergency Questions

Have you ever tried to suck your own cock?

*RH asks this as an update from the previous interview with SM, where at the time SM had not made an attempt.* Still haven’t tried. Yeah, sorry about that.

Is there anything you’d like named after you?

I would quite like a statue at some point, in Bristol. Like, there’s one of Cary Grant, so I wouldn’t mind that. It’s a lot of bronze though, isn’t it?

If you had to have sex with a right-wing politician, if you had to, which Tory, right-wing politician would you have sex with?

Isn’t there that idea that you should vote left but party with the right? Isn’t there some phrase like that or something? Because they’re always so decadent, aren’t they? Well yeah, they’re throwing parties when we’re in lockdown. They can’t stop having parties. They all have weird drug habits. A lot of them have done the cokes and the smacks. So, I’m trying to think. I don’t know that I’m that familiar with everyone’s sort of politics. *RH muses that it would be a great soundbite if SM would admit to being sexually attracted to Hitler.* Do you know what I’m going to do? I’m going to say that I don’t find Hitler sexually attractive. I know that I might get some angry Tweets.

If you could go into a chrysalis and turn into anything else – you can melt in there if you want – and you still have your memories, what would you turn into on the other side?

Even taller. Like, properly mental size. Like, nine foot. Like, nine foot-tall. *RH suggests that it must be a bother to be so tall without the prestige of being the tallest person.* That’s right. It really is galling. Like, I go to basketball games in America. And I like going to basketball games because I’m among my people, but they’re all, like, seven foot. They’re seven foot two; they’re giants. I feel like a titch. So I quite like the idea of being even taller.


This is SM’s second appearance.

RH gives a shout-out to previous guest Terry Hall, who died on December 18, 2022.

RH notes that members of the public have been given the chance to name a new bridge in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. The five shortlisted options are: Queens Gate, Kings Bridge, Britannia Bridge, Yare Bridge, and Herring Bridge. RH notes that if the Herring Bridge is selected, he will attend the opening and will try to give a speech.

RH notes that he would love to have John Cleese on as a guest.

RH expresses regret at not interacting with Rik Mayall when he ran into him at a petrol station.

Right-wing sex question framed as the most right-wing person, rather than specifically politician.

When asked by SM which was his favourite RHLSTP episode, RH notes that it was the interview with Michael Palin.
