I met Ian Botham once when I was a reporter, he was doing one of his long walks and came through the town I worked in, so I managed to do a 30 second interview with him where he gave me a pre-packaged line I’m sure he gave to every local paper. He wasn’t rude exactly, but he wasn’t very charming. But I expect he was quite tired.

Top tier celeb anecdote I’m sure you’ll agree

right little chuckle at this

I thought that was going to be a Partridge quote. I think it’s in Nomad and starts almost identically. I will listen to it again soon and get back to you.

1: hey did you hear that Ian Sinclair and Ian Holm robbed a bank? There was another Ian too I cant remember his name

2: Botham?

1: yes and also a third Ian but as I say cant remember his name

The man shilled Shredded fucking Wheat for a living. Says it all

Forgot about that. Shredded Wheat and Botham used to be inseparable.

My dad went to school with him. The story goes Ian was bullying one of my dad friends so my dad beat him up.

Watched 5 mins. He comes across as a total dickhead.

He was quite into the old green at one point wasn’t he? Assume he’ll be using his new platform to get it legalised. Botham brand pre rollers all lined up and ready to go
