They were always fun to watch. I'll look for them this Saturday. Thanks for the heads up.

I enjoyed them, Didn't the dark haired one pass on? Loved how they went around on the motorcycle.

Mollyanne.....you'll love them!! Not worth passing on a hot date, so record them.

Warning!! Warning!! Do not google "two fat ladies".....you'll come up with pictures you'd never want to see, and that well, give great incentive to sticking to my diet.

Yes, "Jennifer", the "dark-haired one" (who uncannily resembled one of my grandmothers) passed away several years ago. Very sad. Especially since the "Two Fat Ladies" were really just catching on in the U.S. with not only their tv series, but cookbooks, etc. Clarissa is still around, but no longer in any spotlight.

Whoooo Hoooo! I LOVE them! I too have the DVD set and the cook books. The shows run about 30 minutes but I'm sure they cut them down to fit in commercials. I'm actually rewatching the series now.

If you have never seen them they are a hoot! It will take some getting used to the terms and phrases, but you will pick it up. If not, just ask.

Remember.. "just a knob of butter"

And did they ever make ANYTHING, that wasn't just oozing butter? LOL!!! Just terrific stuff. Not stuff you'd want to make every day, but terrific nonetheless. And they were just such wonderful joyous tv personalities. Happy with themselves & happy with life.

Lot of butter, lots of streaky bacon. lots of cream. I just watched the episode last night where Clarissa take a grousse, sticks in " a knob of butter", a 1/4 of an apple, and then wraps the bird in bacon.

It looks like they are running the series from the start. Tonight's episodes are the very first two.
