Sheffield's most celebrated versatile singer/organist, John Shuttleworth is on a mission: to follow in the footsteps of Jamie Oliver, and spread the word about how to enjoy a healthy diet. The now dangerously obese British public need educating, and John is the man to do it - whilst, no doubt, munching on a Tracker bar. There'll be telephone support from dinnerlady wife, Mary, and her ex-colleague, Joan Chitty - both experts in all things culinary - plus advice on eating foreign dishes from nextdoor neighbour and sole agent, Ken Worthington "Ken likes a curry, you see!". The star of acclaimed feature film It's Nice Up North and numerous radio shows including The Shuttleworths, Radio Shuttleworth, and most recently John Shuttleworth's Open Mind, John will also offer a tantalising menu of delicious songs - served up on his legendary Yamaha keyboard. They include I CAN'T GO BACK TO SAVOURY NOW, MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB (green beans and new potatoes..), and 2 MARGARINES, in which John describes the horror of having two half-used tubs of marge in the fridge at one time.
