Extraordinary Christmas Getaways with Sandi Toksvig
Amazing Hotels: life beyond the lobby
Today, Dragons, I’m looking for an investment of £ 1million in exchange for 50% of my breakthrough dental product, Wolfpaste.
No brush is needed. You just let a pack of wild wolves lick your teeth until they shine.
Deborah Meaden would cash out the money in the blink of an eye. She received slobbering kisses from overly friendly Norwegian Wolves and smiled with delight on Extraordinary Christmas Getaways with Sandi Toksvig (C4).
It may seem unhygienic. But Deborah revealed that she had been kissed by Johnny Depp before, which was much worse. Wolves probably had smoother breath – they wouldn’t smell of cigarettes and bourbon.
Sandi took three friends on Arctic adventures, with each trip tailored to the interests of her guests. It turns out that celebrities who really have fun make much better TV than those who politely pretend

For their wolf adventure, Deborah and Sandi stayed at a glass-walled lodge inside the world’s northernmost nature reserve. The perimeter is protected by a steel fence, but maybe that’s to keep polar bears out.
It can’t be keeping the wolves inside. They love it there. It’s a five-star lupine resort, with a nonstop assortment of red meat and plenty of attentive visitors to provide tummy tickles and ear rubs.
All of Sandi’s locations featured cabins with panoramic windows, whether for viewing the Northern Lights or providing stunning views of the fjords where orcas and humpback whales frolic.
The Sky At Night’s Maggie Aderin-Pocock loved the view. “This is one of my dreams,” she sighed happily, “to be warm and toasty, and be able to see the stars at the same time.” “
Sandi looked slightly uncomfortable with the lack of privacy. Even the outdoor sauna had a glass wall. But it was minus 24 ° C outside. Any voyeur will have to be very determined.
Actress Fay Ripley was treated to a speedboat ride to see a frozen waterfall. “I feel like a Bond girl,” she shouted.
Sound of the week
Scarecrow Earthy Mangold (Francesca Mills) kept her garden bird free using glitter CDs hung on lines, at Worzel Gummidge (BBC1).
That’s pretty much all compact discs are good for now in the streaming age.
Sandi thought it would be Pussy Fjord and Ivana Tinkle.
“I want to take my bra off,” Fay shouted, now completely overexcited.
“I have a pressing desire! Roger Moore would have raised an eyebrow at that. Further south, but still in Scandinavia, the views from the windows of Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen were equally spectacular on Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond The Lobby (BBC2).
I’ll never understand why a certain type of show-off insists on bragging about how much he dislikes things that other people enjoy, as if, in a reverse way, it makes him superior. It doesn’t: it just makes it boring
Giles Coren’s window overlooked a ballet stage – however, being a pompous tick, he had to protest that he didn’t like ballet
Monica Galetti’s room at the Nimb Hotel overlooked the theme park’s music stage, where Elton John performed. It would be a hell of a thing to watch from your suite. Giles Coren’s window overlooked a ballet stage – however, being a pompous tick, he had to protest that he didn’t like ballet.

Much of the hour was spent tasting the city’s most pretentious restaurants. But it will be necessary to reserve. There is a ten-year waiting list for Alchemist, where 50 dishes from the tasting menu will set you back £ 1,300 per head.
For that, you get delicacies including a jawbone of cod wrapped in plastic, meat molded in the shape of a human tongue, and a piece of gray matter served in a skull. The cover comes off the head to reveal the filling.
“You have to be open-minded,” the concierge explained. The pun seemed unintentional.
