Ahead of a forthcoming
beach holiday, I’ve been practising
my snorkelling in the bath. Last week, I managed to stay under
for the entirety of The Archers. David’s team. Erm… Lie. For some of the younger people
who have full and vibrant lives… Yeah. ..what is The Archers? The Archers is a radio soap opera about people who do archery. Is your bath big enough
that you can effectively bob in it, full-length? No. My bottom is showing up out of
the water. Oh, God! Picture the scene, Lucy! And you remained in that
weird position… For the whole of The Archers.
..for the whole of The Archers. The omnibus or…? No, I wasn’t on a bus.
I was in the bath. Where are you going on holiday
where there’s going to be such great snorkelling? Thailand. Sorry, not TIE-land. Sockshop. LAUGHTER You’ve got your head in the water
with your arms by your side… Yeah. ..your bum in the air…
Yeah. ..for ten minutes. Ten minutes. What…
what good does that do? It makes you… It helps you
practise not panicking with your head under the water. You’re pushing your head down right
under the surface of the water. I’ve got about that much water in
the bath and my head’s not… That much?! Wow.
What? What do you mean, that much? It’s a big bath. That’s a big bath.
I’m surprised you can get your bum out of the water at that depth.
Oh, no, I’ve got knee pads. Big, thick knee pads, cos it can get
very uncomfortable. You could put a little stool
in the water. I tried that, but my wife said
I’ve got to stop doing that. LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE So, what are you thinking? I think he’s fibbing. Oh. Claudia? Yes. That’s a lie. David. Yes. It’s a lie. It’s a lie. Lee. What? Was it a lie or were you
telling the truth? It’s… ..a lie. APPLAUSE
