Which is the best Motorway Services?

We started the show accidentally discussing out favourite service stations. Ellie's is Woodhall simply because it has a Starbucks and is on the M1 on her way home. The overall winner seemed to be Leicester Forest services and Ben thinks it's worth Ellie driving past her house in Nottingham to have a stop off and drive back. J21 on the M1 if you fancy a gander.

We had drama at the gym yesterday when Ben and Ellie went training for Dirty Hero. The first issue was Ellie only had swimming kit but they decided they couldn't go swimming together because it would be too weird. Then they both wanted to go to the steam room afterwards but didn't want to bump into each other. Ellie went in and because she couldn't see anything, she spotted a space right next to the door so just sat down. Unfortunately the only other person in the steam room was lying down next to her with their face very close to Ellie's derriere. Ellie couldn't move and couldn't look round but then had a horrible feeling it was Ben so was trying to listen to their breathing to see if she could recognise it. Thankfully it wasn't Ben.

Ellie had jean drama this morning when she has put on jeans that don't feel right. When she got to work and they were falling down she thought she would check and they're not hers… they were in her wardrobe so who knows where they have come from. Ben reckons she's taken them from York Sport by accident… If you are missing a pair of jeans give us a call.
