A PROFESSIONAL Northerner’s credibility is in tatters after he was caught drinking wine.
A number of incidents have cast doubt on Yorkshireman Roy Hobbs’s claims that he only eats pies and regards anything cultural as ‘daft’.
Friend Donna Sheridan said: “I popped round unexpectedly to lend Roy a book about pigeon racing and noticed a half-eaten meal of beef bourguignon, some steamed vegetables and a bottle of Argentinian Malbec.
“He made some excuse about Tesco running out of hotpot and Boddingtons, but then I heard classical music on his radio, rather than The Fall or The Macc Lads.”
Hobbs said: “This is all a huge mix-up. I only went on that cookery course to get better at proper Northern grub like tripe in vinegar or a massive plate of mince and onion.”
He now faces disciplinary action from the Association of Professional Northerners and could be stripped of his right to use the word ‘bugger’.
