Behind the scenes 'The One Show' @ the Beeb!


Frank the Jet Boat
BBC Broadcasting House

Morning of the 1st Sept and Frank is sat waiting at Holly Farm Garden Centre ready to be driven down to London for 'The One Show'.

Arrived at the BBC Broadcasting House, it wasn't much fun driving it through London at 3PM.

5 minutes to go and Jimmy's still in the guest room! The Beeb obviously like to leave it to the last minute. Pictured from the left:
Me, Amy, Hannah, Chloe, Jimmy, Jon & Anthony.

The Hairy Bikers were also guests on 'The One Show'. Is that a Jet Boat in the background?

They look quite comfortable?

Dave Myers and Si King, although they always seem to be happy, I'm guessing they like being in a Jet Boat.

1 x Viper 202 removed, just one support and it's sits perfectly balanced, you would think it was touching the floor, which it isn't.
