Filming in Winchester


#1

What should I see when walking through the park in Winchester earlier?

Is that the chap from the BBC’s latest iteration of Food and Drink? I seem to remember 5’s The Wine Show was pretty divisive here in the Community, I wonder if people feel the same way about Food and Drink?


#2

Looks Danny Ings to me. A footballer who has just joined the Saints from Liverpool.


#3

The chap with the beard that is!


#4

That’s the one in the middle with maroon shirt. Maybe the larger person on the left has a beard too - I couldn’t decide at first glance if it was a man or a woman!


#5

I thought Southampton were Liverpool’s feeder club, not the other way round :wink:


#6

Don’t be ridiculous Southampton have been supplying Spurs for years :relieved:


#7

The chap on the left (loud shirt) ran a tasting for us at a food festival last month and does do a lot of TV work. He was nice, the wines were not…


#8

Good point! He is a good player. Got badly injured shortly after joining Liverpooland couldn’t really get back in the team. Hope he does well for the Saints, though not against the ‘Pool :wink:


#9

The ‘chap’ leading the tasting is the very lovely Joe Wadsack - very funny, very knowledgable, and a great presenter. I enjoyed his Food & Drink time, though I gather it wasn’t that easy!

:wink:


#10

My good buddy Joe Wadsack - all those things Robert says. Highly entertaining.


#11

Please dont tell him I could tell if he was a man or a woman :face_with_hand_over_mouth::pray:t2: I blame the quality of the photo…


#12

He definitely has a beard …
wadders


#13

Bizarrely, walking through a different park outside the cathedral today:

I promise I’m not Joe Wadsack’s stalker, though I can see it might seem that way stopping to take photos of him twice (using a child in a buggy as cover).


#14

Just seen this take on facebook:


#15

Was Joe a boy chorister at Winchester then?

(My recommendation is to try Pi for pizza next time!)


#16

Not sure about chorister (I’ve heard him sing, but it was late!!)

I do believe he was at Winchester College (according to his bio) though

Actually, he has a rather amazing background, but I’ll let him tell you the story some day - he does it rather well


#17

Ah right - I thought he was referring to the Pilgrims School (which is the choir school), and is in the cloisters. Maybe he meant the filming was there.

I like Joe’s presentation style so would enjoy meeting him I’m sure!
