Brian said:
During our village fete in East Clandon near Guildford, I was delighted to pick up a banana cake and was told that the baker was Nigel Simpson.

A week later when I saw Nigel I complimented him on his delicious cake and said half jokingly ‘Next time you are doing one would you like to be filmed?’ 

He readily agreed!
