Yeah, I'll have tenner on the FGT.

I'm surprised that we haven't heard anything yet, but I reckon if Kitten had pulled it off then Cookie would have been all over the place like a rash by now!

It was kept quiet, so I dont know....

Do you think they will tell us, or make us wait? So who wants to risk some pounds? Any takers?

OK so it's one pound with you and another 9 up for grabs.

Now people can put their money either way, either with you, or me!

Perhaps we set the stakes too high? No offers?

Sorry guys, you're gonna have to wait n see!

the contract signed by Kitten and I forbids us from giving any details out about the challenge, or it's outcome.

What I will say is, it's bloody hard work, and bloody good fun. The Scrapheap TV team are great fun, and I'd love to do it again some time if I get the chance.

Thanks to Mike Shelton for putting me forward and giving me the opportunity.

Doesn't look like it's going to get aired untill January/February time

One snip I can give, is that I had the honour of doing my run with the 300mph 'Mr Woppit' on board as a lucky mascot! Gina Kindly trusted me with the little (and rather famous & valuable) chap, as Kitten had his own lucky mascot and she felt it fairer if I borrowed him for a while.....Very cool indeed.

Is it the REAL Mr Woppit who was in the Bluebird boat on that sad day.

Can't get the link to work?

All I know about the event is that Kitten was absolutely knackered when he was done!

Looking forward to the show!
