Hilarious local teacher Ashley reveals to the nation on ‘Couples Come Dine With Me’ that his weird celebrity crush is Tony Blair!
An entertaining local couple had TV viewers and dinner guests alike roaring with laughter during their appearance on the hit Channel 4 show Couples Come Dine With Me.
Sabbi Boora and Ashley Spiers were described as ‘fabulously floral’ by dinner guests as they went on to claim second place on the show for their impressive threecourse Indo-Caribbean meal.
But the couple were the winners in the entertainment stakes as Ashley – who taught Performing Arts at MK College for 10 years until 2014 – stole the limelight alongside Sabbi.
In one exchange that tickled dinner guests, Ashley said: “Does anybody have a weird celebrity crush? Mine is Tony Blair.”
In another comical discussion, he said: “It’s really awkward when you’re both guys – who asks who to marry them? So we’re just having that stand-off at the moment.”
The couple have remained friends with their TV dinner guests since filming, even inviting them to MK for a night out at Missoula.
But their new-found fame has sadly brought with it some unwanted attention too. Ashley told Celebrate:MK: “Since the show we’ve had mostly positive feedback with some homophobic social media comments thrown in for good measure.
“It is not lost on us that we’re a diverse gay couple on one of the most popular shows on TV. It’s important that we’re represented.”
Watch the show again on All 4, Season 6 Episode 25.
