    17 mins for an alleged 10 minute DIY assembly is fantastic ... I would have expected it would take at least twice that.

    I had to chuckle at the thought of you trying to follow the 'instructions' comprising just diagrams with no words. I don't get on with these at all. I would say that the diagrams translate from the original Chinese into English in a far less compehensible way than words.

    Thankfully the whole thing was a locked off camera shot, meaning it will be sped up and shown in a blur. I suspect I may look partially competent when that happens – the magic of TV.
    And it will look brilliant shown at the right speed on the out takes compilation program coming to a telly very near you soon ;)
    .................:)....I'm smiling because I have no idea what's going on ...:)
