As I stood in my kitchen in my workout clothes, all the furniture pushed back against the walls, staring at the unblinking eye of my laptop’s camera, I had one sobering thought: ‘This is the worst idea I’ve ever had.’


What you need to know is that I’m more qualified that most to make that assessment. I’ve spent the last half decade coming up with television programme ideas and trying to get them commissioned – Partridge’s monkey tennis has nothing on me. But while I know what works on camera – and what doesn’t – I never imagined I’d be making that judgment as regards myself.
