Video transcript

- Are you good at cooking though, Nancy? I imagine you get a lot of takeaway. I mean, I don't know, but I'm imagining.

NANCY DELL'OLIO: Well, I never-- this goes with imagination, because Italian, because from the South. But I-- that I spend a lot of time between America and London. So let's say, it's not the best room in the house for me. It's not on top of my list, my cooking.

- Right. I am so watching.

- Only you could get away with that, you know?

[LAUGHTER]

So you get a lot of takeaway. Anyway, no one else is getting away with it.

- I don't think it is.

- Unbelievable.

- Somebody needs to say it.

NANCY DELL'OLIO: Did I say something wrong?

- No, no. You're spot on. Just typical Jonesy.

- [LAUGHS]
