IAN HOLLOWAY: Winston Churchill and Simon Cowell are my dream dinner guests

ONE of my favourite TV shows is Come Dine With Me. The wife and I watch it a lot, not that I'm very good at cooking, but it's just the quirkiness of the characters on display.

Would I like to go on the show? Probably not – they look through your house, slaughter your cooking and entertainment!

It just seems a bit bizarre but I do find it amusing. It shows you what different people in this country are like.

One of my favourite episodes was when a woman brought out a bottle of chilli sauce from her bag and said to the bloke his food was a bit bland.

I actually met that bloke because it was filmed in Blackpool and apparently he threw the woman out of his house and the programme had to edit it out.

He did a meal where all the other guests said it was nice and then she does that. You've got to laugh, haven't you?

If I had to choose four people to star on my Come Dine With Me so I could meet them, I'd have Winston Churchill first.

Then I'd have Richard Branson to ask him a few questions. And I've heard it costs more than £100,000 to go on his new spaceship to the moon or something – I wouldn't be doing that, I like to have my feet on the ground. I think I'd also have Simon Cowell and if I had to choose someone from the football world, it would be Jose Mourinho.

I think I'd create a rather interesting programme there but I'm not sure about my cooking skills.

And the other show I like is Britain's Got Talent.

It's just come back and I think there was a bricklayer on there the other day who just came on and sang.

At first it went wrong but then he absolutely belted it the second time and it was brilliant.

It's fantastic to see someone from a building site can sing like that and quite amazing how their lives might change.

I remember last year with the woman and her dog, it just goes to show what we're like in Britain and it makes you proud in one way that we're so diverse.

And it also makes you think about how lucky some people are. It is about your talent or is it being in the right place at right time?

People in Big Brother, they're all a bit eccentric.

If you can sing and play the guitar and you go on the show and it changes your life around, it's just remarkable.
