Growing old and they don't like it

Doing an Orzabal; Baguettes; Awkward Bedroom Exit; Lunch with Tosin; Good Looks
Please Don't Hug Me is written and produced by TV writer, comedian, Sabotage Times columnist, sometime football journalist and all too often temporary office worker, Daniel Ruiz Tizon. He is joined every week by old school friend and 1980s school sprint champion Micky Boyd, who still believes in him. Each blames the other for the 13-year break in their friendship from 1990 to 2003. When reunited, Daniel found Micky to be an overweight family man, whilst the former sprint champ found Daniel convinced he was one half of Tears For Fears.
The show without a home returns with Daniel Ruiz Tizon at the helm a la Roland Orzabal circa 1993.
This week writer and comedienne Roisin Rae's stressing about having her baguette snapped in half at the supermarket; there's lunch with Tosin; the Awkward Exit to the Bedroom in which Daniel wants to make sure the in-laws are comfortable with him sleeping with their daughter in the next room. Fiona thinks he's making too big a deal. But Daniel wants her to appreciate the mental adjustment her parents must make as he takes his place in her bed.
Also, sandwich routes comes from Willow Place, SW1 and Gavin Barber takes Daniel on in the latest Good Looks Challenge. Plus regular favourite TOILET BINGO: Can Superlative C make it four triumphs? And listeners battle it out to win Daniel's battered cords, the same trousers that witnessed his dramatic fall in the last year.
