Chef Antony Worrall Thompson and TV host Richard Madeley have announced plans to launch a surprisingly cheap wine and cheese supply business.
The cook and former This Morning presenter were both keen to stress that the cut-price business will offer a selection of hand picked wines and cheeses that are definitely not stolen from the nearest Tesco.
“I have personally selected all of our stock,” said Worrall Thompson. “Each item we sell has been hand picked by me and has certainly not been slipped into a sports bag at the self service till.”
“We also offer a very affordable bottle of champagne,” added Madeley. “Although it took me ages to remember the name, as you know how forgetful I can be when browsing the shelves in a supermarket.”
Worrall Thompson expanded on the business model he and Madeley will use. “It’s still early days – at the moment it’s just me and Richard going around pubs with a carrier bag quietly asking people if they’d like to buy some wine or cheese.
If things go well, we’ll soon also be offering pirated DVD’s and counterfeit cigarettes.”
