Rehearsing started interestingly enough as I was assaulted by a passing Jeremy Kyle ‘lady’…..as she pinched my bum from her passing wheel chair! Anyway back to my serious practicing for Jimmy’s 30 second Military Style Workout. Jimmy approached me and asked what I had in store for him, judging by his trademark expressions I don’t think he was too impressed with my idea for Burpees and Lie To Stands in his tight trousers! However Jimmy is obviously a smart guy as he took the opportunity to ask if I had a Pull Up bar available whilst displaying his customary smile…obviously aware that this was an impossible request at such a late hour! To be fair to him I think he’d have pulled it off judging by his exemplary press ups as I reckon Jimmy had been working hard with his Personal trainer to impress me.
30 Seconds ran into 45 seconds as Jimmy’s workout started to get a little real…typically it was my luck that the countdown clock had failed to start, I mean come on! “Jimmy shall we go again seen as you did so well”, taking the opportunity to banter with Mr Carr! Jimmy looked flattered and jumped to the opportunity to show off those press ups once more. Personally I was starting to enjoy the experience as the studio audience found it all mildly amusing and my nerves dissipated. To finish the day by singing a surreal acapello version of Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up backstage with Johnny Vegas was definitely one of the funniest moments of the day.
