Last November we were approached by BBC3 to mentor a guy to become a better boyfriend for a new TV show, ‘How to live with women’. The ordeal lasted two days and involved a young gobby Essex lad called Tom coming to stay at mine and working at the shop.

I felt really sick and ready to cringe last night before it went on air, and I wasn’t lucky enough to escape the footage of me waking Tom up without a scrap of makeup in Dax’s dressing gown.

Behind the scenes Tom wasn’t too bad, although at the time it all seemed more hassle than it was worth. This morning I’m eating my words, I’ve come into a mailbox full of enquiries as far away as Ireland!

So all worth while although I wouldn’t be in a rush to go round to Toms again for tea!
