What scares you?
Henry: Radiation. Absolutely terrifying.
Ian: I would say loneliness that’s out of my control. Self-imposed loneliness is quite nice sometimes.
What is your worst habit?
H: Being grumpy when I’m tired.
I: Using my mobile phone a little bit too much, though I’ve used it a lot less this year.
The chefs, who have appeared on This Morning, say the launch of their first book is a memory that will live forever
Who or what is the love of your life?
I: Food. It’s been life-changing.
H: It’s got to be my fiancée Em-J [Emily-Jane Williams, 33, a vegan make-up artist].
Who would you invite to a dinner party?
H: I’m obsessed with Albert Einstein so I’d like to hang out with him. I’d also want Sacha Baron Cohen there because I reckon he would do quite a good Einstein impression, and Donald Trump, as I think Sacha would absolutely merk him and you’d be witness to one of the greatest roasts in history.
I: Given the current times, I’d just invite my closest friends.

All-time favourite movie?
H: Interstellar. It helped me go vegan because it’s got a really strong message about climate change and the future of humanity.
I: I love Toy Story. It’s one of the best movies ever made.
What is your biggest regret?
I: I don’t think I have any. Everything that you do leads you to the point that you’re at, and I’m pretty happy right now.
H: Selling the Bitcoin I had four years ago. I would have been worth a lot more money now!

What possession would you rescue from a burning building?
H: My decks that I like to DJ on for fun.
I: My childhood teddy bear Norman. I’d scoop him up and run out.
What’s the worst pain you’ve experienced?
H: Appendicitis was pretty bad. I don’t remember it much as I was a kid, but it was a splitting pain in my stomach. They took out part of my intestine.
I: When I got sunburn in Thailand in 2019. I fell asleep on the beach without any suncream on.

Most famous person on your phone?
I: Alex Turner from the Arctic Monkeys.
H: I’ve got Davina McCall’s number.
What has been your greatest achievement?
H: It has to be BOSH! and selling nearly 600,000 cookbooks.
I: The launch of our first book in London’s Borough Market [in 2018]. That’s a memory that will live forever.

If you were Prime Minister for the day, what would you do?
I: I would probably encourage people to have an afternoon in front of the television watching documentaries like Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret, Forks Over Knives and Earthlings. After they watched them, I’d ask them to rethink their food choices.
H: I’d change the law and make myself the dictator forever, so I could have more time to sort everything out.
