There are many parks in Bath, but my favourite is the Botanical Gardens. Every season provides the visitor with something different to see. In spring and summer the trees and beautiful flowers are in bloom, and the sounds of newborn birds fills the air. In autumn the golden sunshine looks amazing as it shines weakly through the brown and orange leaves as they fall from the trees. And in the frosty winter there is a stillness as you walk on the crispy grass and past the frozen ponds.

I love the actor Brian Blessed. I was lucky to meet him once and he asked ME for MY photo to show his acting chum, Kenneth Branagh (Wallander, Henry V, Tenet) because he thought I looked just like him. In this video, I tell the story of when he punched a polar bear in the face while on a trip to the North Pole.
