    That really surprises me. Most people know Rowan is a huge petrolhead but he is also reputed to be painfully shy. Having said that I just checked IMDB and was quite surprised at the number of interviews and talk show appearances he has made although I suspect much of that was for contractual plugging as much as anything else. That can't be said here since his latest project (Johnny English Reborn) isn't slated for release until October.

    Dr Grip: Brilliant!

    Jay IKEA now ranks up in my awesome list, quite near bacon and blowjobs.

    Cowboy I've never gotten so drunk I wanted to rub one out while shoving a fire extinguisher up my ass.

      In any case, there shall be much rejoicing among the Final Gear patrons, methinks.
      “Relationships - of all kinds - are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold onto it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person, it is likely to remain intact. But hold too tightly, too possessively, and the relationship slips away and is lost.” ?

            It is a fascinating insight.

                  Another Telegraph article - Top Gear in quotes by Andy.

                  jedd_kenobi: The next series of Top Gear has been suspended because he-he has locked up Andy Wilman in her cellar for her own producing purposes.

                    I thought this was rather telling...

                    That and his confession to He-he that we probably won't enjoy 17x04 that much.

                    Seems he's rather done a u-turn on the "it's our show and we'll make the show we want to make and if you're on the internet and you don't like it you can just fuck off!" stance that he appeared to be taking at the time.

                      I wonder how that man still hasn't lost his mind.
                      He is responsible for schedule, budget and quality of TG. I guess a lot of his job is to say "no" to JC. If there are complaints it's his call if they need dealing with.
                      He used to look like a tiger ready to pounce but has become much more relaxed in recent years.
