I was lucky enough to be chosen as a James Bond superfan for a Saturday night TV show on the BBC in England, to have an audience with Sir ROGER MOORE whilst he was promoting his book “My Word is Bond”. I met Sir Roger at CLARIDGES which is a very famous hotel in London- One of GORDON RAMSEY’s restaurants is situated within the hotel.

The show is a light entertainment family show so there is a large element of “comedy” (ahem!) within the piece but it was an amazing experience for me as I grew up in the 70’s and ROGER MOORE was the Bond I grew up with- the first Bond movie I saw (at the Cinema) was THE SPY WHO LOVED ME when I was 8 years old (I’m now 43) and I’ve been hooked ever since.

Sir Roger was a great guy, funny and very down to earth. He gave me a framed and signed MOONRAKER movie poster (another guy on the show received A VIEW TO A KILL poster which is what they show at the end).

I apologise about the quality of the footage as my son filmed it direct from the TV on his iphone.

By the way- I’m the black guy in the red Lacoste shirt

I hope you like it!
