Darrell is off to visit Hugh, his best friend and mentor who lives the showbiz life in Notting Hill , which is why Darrell nipped into town yesterday afternoon to find a little something for Hugh, to say “thank you” for his
Now, Hugh isn’t exactly the easiest person to make a considered purchase for, even “Simone Cowelle” has his difficulties, however, Darrell knows Hugh pretty well by now, and has noticed that though Hugh is very generous in an overtly Elton John type way to his friends and staff, he sometimes forgets to treat himself, and despite all his glitz, glamour, high heels, frou frou and feather boas, Hugh’s taste can be quite simple and unstarry!
…….. starting with a quarter of fizzy fish, because, despite it’s world renowned reputation, it’s something Darrell knows that Hugh’s equivalent to our village Tesco Express, Harrods just doesn’t stock and is something Hugh has the occasion to hanker for!
Hugh also very much appreciates a dunked chocolate Leibniz biscuit with his morning coffee while he gossips with his cleaner, and Darrell was particularly thrilled to find a white chocolate variety, which he didn’t think Hugh has tried before, so it that was a no brainer to pop a couple of packets into his suitcase as well.And finally, there was two mahoooosive of bags of big value Vejazzles, one white and one milk chocolate, which Darrell just knew Hugh would serve all mixed together in one of his fine cut glass bonbon dishes, as they sat and watched, back to back, all the episodes of "The Great British Bake Off" Hugh had missed due to his hectic showbiz schedule and many charity commitments. Darrell could almost hear Hugh whisper to him .... "Zat Pawl Hollywoods, 'ee 'as zee most beauuuuuuutiful blue eyes, no, Darrelle? ..... And zee way 'ee kneads 'is dough ...... is zee magic .........?"
