Rumour has it he was going to demonstrate how to rub two fleecies together to start a fire so he wouldn't have been popular there anyway.

Apparently that bit of bad timing has cost him ten grand in speaker's fees - how the other half lives eh?

'Jeremia Clarkson' is the biggest hater of caravan I have seen on TV.

He was talking about "Statics" !! Does anyone like seeing the coast blanketed with white boxes ?? Praa sands is "wall to wall" with the bloody things !! Right on the beautiful coast !!

Not long enough!
Truth be told he doesn't need the money and hated the gig so did what he did, just wonder how much do these celebs get for going on that (101) type of show?

Newbie to MH, 20yrs+ Caravanning.
Having read the article which noted-

A statement from Pelican Communications added Mears had recorded Room 101 before entering negotiations to appear at the caravan show.

"We feel his agent should have made us aware of this pre-recording the moment we began communicating," it continued.

It appears Mears is easily swayed from his beliefs and opinions at the smell of money. If he felt that strongly about caravans, static or mobile, why go into negotiations to do the show. I notice they've invited him along to the show anyway, to see for himself. I hope they made the narrow minded git pay for his ticket.
