Hoovering – Episode 13: Stephen Bailey

Welcome to HOOVERING, the podcast about eating. Host, Jessica Fostekew (Guilty Feminist, Motherland) has a frank conversation with an interesting person about gobbling; guzzling; nibbling; scoffing; devouring and wolfing all up… or if you will, hoovering.

This week I’m joined by comedian who is none other than Zoe Ball’s new Agony Uncle on Sunday mornings on ITV – Stephen Bailey. You can catch him at the Soho Theatre if you’re London based, the first weekend in May. 

I took Stephen for dinner in a particularly ‘characterful’ part of Llanelli, in Wales. We talk about those days where you’re like a bottomless pit on the food front; mental spinning instructors; fussiness; fasting and eating on first dates. All that, and it’s somehow quite a short episode.
