Piers Morgan interview
Describe your perfect day. I'd wake at 6am in my flat on the Chelsea River. I'd put Stevie Wonder on and make myself a big pot of Columbian coffee and start writing my newspaper columns. I find this the easiest time to write. Then breakfast at the Wolsley – but I'll only meet people who'll give me good gossip. Then on to Lord's to watch a test match and eat an al fresco lunch while a boring batsman is on. I'd end the day with dinner at The Ivy or Le Caprice with good friends.
Spaghetti bolognaise. Particularly if it's been made by my mother.
Ez in the South of France. It's the most amazing little village, with breathtaking views.
The smell of freshly cut grass. At the beginning of the cricket season, you can't beat the smell. It's like a tortoise coming out of hibernation.
Airline food. I've been spending a lot of time in the US and I dread the garbage they serve you on the flights.
Top Gear. I loathe the show, for reasons purely associated with Jeremy Clarkson.
Losing. I'm sport-mad and my sons have reached the age where they beat me at everything. It's acutely embarrassing and vaguely soul destroying.
