"Rob is still the clown. He’s still the cheeky boy, as he said back then. Mark’s still the gentle, nice, sensitive person. Gary’s still a leader - an outspoken person. Howard is the strong, silent one. And me, I’m fucking incredible" (с) Jay

WHAT THE FUCK DID I JUST FIND?
And sure, they rib each other all the time. Jason tells Gary he should write a new score for Scrooge this year because he’s a “tight sod”. Gary tells Jason he’ll drop dead in five years’ time because of all the vitamins he takes. They all take the mickey out of Mark’s height but as soon as he’s upset about it they rally round telling him he’s getting taller and there’s still plenty of time to grow…
The night we leave them, Jason, Gary, Robbie, Mark, and Howard finish their dinner and wander to their dressing room. Gary throws himself onto the scrawny sofa. “I’m knackered, J, and I’ve got a headache.” [Sure, Gaz, that’s what they all say.]
Jason immediately sits beside him and lays Gary’s head in his lap. He massages his neck and temples while Gary murmurs thanks and appreciation. Another “touching” session is about to begin. Howard wanders over and leans towards Jason.
"Erm, J, let’s have a look at your chest, mate."
"Not now, ‘Ow."
"Ah go on, I haven’t had a look for ages."
With that Howard delves down Jason’s shirt and proceeds to pull out any chest hairs he can find. Five minutes later, the group stir and begin to change into their show clothes. Howard takes off his jeans, revealing a pair of bum-baring Calvins. Gary can’t resist the opportunity. He gives Howard’s bum a giant whack! Howard just smiles good-naturedly and continues to dress.
