David Gest Interview

20th May 2015

I caught up with the one and only David Gest...

Alex and David Gest

He's hosting a massive show at the York Barbican in September featuring some of the biggest names in music from across the years. Find out more by clicking here.

You may have heard my interview with him on air in which he talks about the show, his life, as well as talking frankly and openly about his friend Michael Jackson.

However for broadcast, we had to edit out a heck of a lot which wouldn't have been suitable for daytime radio. So if you want to hear the full interview, click the player below.

Be warned, it contains adult subjects and is very rude in places. If you're easily offended, please don't listen!

Caffe Del Opera 3 Masterclass 22/09/14

22nd September 2014

With the York Festival of Food and Drink on this week, I thought I could do with brushing up on my culinary skills, so I spent a morning at Caffe Del Opera 3 on King Street in York for an Italian Cookery Masterclass.

Their style of food is very much based on authentic Italian and Sardinian cuisine, with a commitment to using the freshest and best quality ingredients.

Head chef, Salvatore showed me the ropes and got me cooking some amazing dishes... although there were one or two mishaps on the way (on my part).
