Episode 1: Jamie and Jimmy's Friday Night Feast
The lads are back on Southend Pier and the first thing Jamie Oliver asks their guest Simon Pegg is, “You hungry? You like pancakes? You like cheese? Tomatoes and smoky ham?” Thankfully for him and the cheesy Provençal bake he’s about to make, the answer is yes to everything. “It’s fundamentally evil... a cheese festival in a pan,” says Pegg, having demolished a large portion.
Judging by the constant burbling of chatter in the background, the other guests – the lucky diners sitting at the café tables waiting to be fed – don’t appear to pay any attention to what’s going on in the kitchen. Watch a Hollywood star cooking a lamb tagine? Overhear some blokey banter between Jamie and Jimmy? Nope, I’ll chat to my mate instead.
And in a filmed report about free-range ducks, there’s the hilarious sight of Jimmy Doherty marooned in a sea of hundreds of cute ducklings. “I can’t move. Seriously, how do I get out of here?” he wails.
