Yes! Bobby Beckles is back on tour. Smashing the life out of the M25, M1, M5 and any other road that’s in his way.

Expectations on Rob: put on 3 stone from takeaways and post-show drinking.

Expectations of you: leave the gig happier than when you arrived.

My wife thinks it’s going to be tough for me to be away from the family and don’t get me wrong, I do love my children/podcast content providers… but I also enjoy a lie-in and a hotel buffet breakfast. I think I’ll cope.

What else is there to do? Sit next to your partner on the sofa scrolling TikTok in silence again? You did that the last three nights. See you there!

Host of Sky’s Rob Beckett’s Smart TV and Rob & Romesh Vs. He’s also the unmistakable voice of Channel 4’s Celebs Go Dating and the smash-hit podcast Parenting Hell.
