STUDIO GUEST :: ROBIN ELLIS
Robin Ellis – heart throb of the 70’s and 80’s as the handsome Captain Ross Poldark of the hugely popular TV Series. He now lives in France with his wife, six cats and a hen, where his life-long passion for cooking plus a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes has led to him writing cook books and regular blogs on food and life in rural France.

Angelique is a WWF primate specialist who has spent the last 14 years in the Central African Republic looking after a group of gorillas and building a family of her own. But when rebel groups overthrew the government in March this year, Angelique was forced to flee the country, and leave behind the gorillas she’d befriended and the place she calls home.
