A lack of Jimmy Carr

Channel 4 contacted me earlier in the week with an email which I misinterpreted, I got the impression that Jimmy Carr would be joining one of my classes but no, it turns out he will use a clay sculpture of Michelangelo's 'David'  that I make and then pass it off as his. I had several interesting and very pleasant chats with a lovely chap on the production team about the logistics of making and delivering said sculpture. I had the distinct feeling that he thought I had a series of differently sized 'Davids' suitably adapted with the faces of different celebrities already on my shelves, ready for when the TV companies phone in an order. I am sure he wanted to send someone round to collect that afternoon……….Alas, no sign of the contract
