Fabulous Food and Classic Cars in Ballycastle - O

Last Friday was one of the sunniest days of the summer on the Causeway Coast. While I was awaiting the return of Minister McGimpsey I chanced on preparations for an upcoming TV production.

Usually when you spot Jim Fairbairn and his classic Drophead Bentley he's chauffeuring a bride and groom but this time the driver was actor Brian Milligan and his companion was broadcaster Emma-Louise Johnston.

They are appearing in a TV series scheduled for the autumn called "The Fabulous Food Adventure" and Jenny Bristow will be preparing another of her mouth-watering meals. The Co Antrim programme is scheduled for Thursday, October 16, at 7.30pm.

Apparently Morton's supplied the fish so the 'shoot' involved Brian and Emma-Louise driving out from Morton's premises and turning left towards the Ballycastle promenade. If you see Brian waving from the car with Fairhead and Kintyre in the background he's returning my cheeky wave!!

After the shoot Jim, Brian, Emma-Louise and the rest of the squad sat down in the glorious sunshine for a good old helping of Morton's Fish & Chips.
