Gerry & Dave Meet Gok Wan

It’s begun to get sunny, but that was nothing compared to the little ray of sunshine we welcomed in the studio this morning.

Gok Wan is one of Britain’s most loved fashion designers, an in-demand presenter easily one of the most positive celebrities ever.

Since bursting onto the scene as a fashion expert in 2006 he’s gone on to have a diverse and successful career. He started work as a stylist for celebrity clients including All Saint. After making multiple appearances on daytime TV Gok landed his first full-length series as the host of Channel 4’s How To Look Good Naked.

His other screen credits include Gok’s Teens: The Naked Truth, Gok Wan: Too Fat, Too Young and Gok’s Fill Your House For Free. He’s also enjoyed success with his cooking shows: Gok’s Lunchbox and Gok Cooks Chinese. Now he frequently appears as a fashion expert on This Morning where he helps viewers to achieve body confidence.

So, there’s a lot to talk about. Normal interviews would focus on Gok’s career, his life and his projects.

However, Gerry & Dave don’t do ‘normal interviews’ and in the organised chaos Dave talks about awards do’s

What Are The Golden Chopsticks?

Well, to put it simply, The Golden Chopsticks are the only awards to recognise and celebrate the enormous contribution of Oriental cuisines to the UK catering industry.

After getting drunk with his best friends Sarah & Lucy, Gok came up with the idea of putting on an awards ceremony with a twist. 3 months later and The Golden Chopsticks were born.

We were proud enough to be there along with Ken Hom OBE, Simon Rimmer, Ching-He Huang & loads more celebs.

What Happened Next

It was all going so well. The interview was fun, there was a bit of a laugh and it was all enjoyable, but then it went South.

Gerry asked Gok what glasses Dave should buy. It’s a simple question, Gok gave a simple answer. Then, right at the end, Dave got involved and it all got derailed. We can’t describe it so just have a listen…
