“Yes we were very busy this [Wednesday] morning, but I don’t see any reason why it won’t carry on.”


And Simon revealed that plans for an extended show in 2018 are already in place. He said: “2018 is already pencilled in the book. Obviously we want to have a think about it, but we’ve reached the target that we’ve set ourselves, and beyond, and I can’t see any reason why it won’t come back.”
