Sunday Express 27/2/00)
||Sunday is definitely my favourite
day. I don't get up until 11ish. I tend to cook a Scottish breakfast once
or twice a month consisting of bacon, sausages, potato scones, eggs and
sometimes even a HAMBURGER or PORK CHOP. Otherwise it's orange juice,
cereal, toast and tea.I dress very casually in big, baggy comfortable
clothes and trainers.
If I'm in London I play football most Sunday afternoons. I'm a mad
Hibernian fan and I play for the London Hibs Supporters Club. We're top of
the league at the moment and are in the cup semi-finals. You can't beat
it. We go out whatever the weather, pay £5 for the showers, however bad
they are, there are no airs or graces. We start at 2pm so that's the
afternoon taken care of.
After football I'll nip to the pub with the lads and wind down or scoot
back home to watch football on telly. I'm actually working the next four
Sundays filming Wheel Of Fortune up in Glasgow so I'm afraid my football's
going to suffer.
Sunday evenings are generally the pictures and a meal. Weekends are
normally so hectic so it's nice to have a quiet evening with
friends. Otherwise I'll stay at home and have a telly supper. I'm
really enjoying Clocking Off at the moment so if I'm not in I'll make the
effort to tape it. If I've got some spare time I'll play the piano. I like
playing anything from classical stuff and show tunes to the Beatles and
George Michael. If I had all the money in the world I wouldn't spend
Sunday any differently.
With my fees from all my recent TV appearances I am going to buy the team
brand new long sleeve strips for the Final, should we get there. My view
is normally "if it ain't broke don't fix it", in the
circumstances however I am
slightly embarrassed turning up in state of the Art gear while my
team-mates look like extra's from a Dickensian football game.
