Julian Clary jokes about JAM

in The New Statesman this week

As I arrived at the Rose Theatre in Kingston upon Thames to record an episode of Radio 4’s Just a Minute, I met Paul Merton. Paul always has the best opening lines. I offered him a mint before we went through the stage door. “Do you find it takes away the taste of your boyfriend?” he asked.

As we waited for the recording to begin, Nicholas Parsons was pacing up and down. "Do you still get nervous?" I asked him. "Oh yes," he confirmed. "I still worry that maybe this time it won't work. Silly, really. This is our 700th recording."
