Ade Edmondson of The Young Ones came on a fungi foray with me to film for his new ITV series "Ade in Britain". The series will be aired in Feburary 2013 so tune in!


Ade and I went mushroom picking on the South Downs in the Spring filming for his new 2013 series, this should be out soon so keep an eye out in February, the program is called Ade in Britain..


A fun day had by all and my young volunteer/neighbour Brandon getting a chance to do some work experience too!


What a  moment being followed by a film crew, through the woods with Ade a childhood punk comedy eye con,all quite surreal and a million miles away from anything I thought was going to happen under the canopy of a familiar woodland walk of mine, quite bonkers but amazing.


Very happy with our humble basket of Wild Garlic and mushrooms, you will have to wait to see what we found when you see the program!
