I refuse to play my son at tennis
since he beat me at the age of five. How old is he now? He’s eight now. So, you’ve not played him
for three years? No. Because you really
don’t like losing? I hate losing.
Particularly to someone so small and who laughs hysterically
as they’re doing it. I’ve seen some of your opponents,
you don’t mind boxing them. I take him to the park sometimes
for him to play other adults and take great pleasure
in watching him beat them. MEL: Aaah.
That’s one of my favourite things
to do, just to go up to them and say, “Bet you can’t beat him,”
and they’re like, “OK, how much?” I’m like,
“How much you want to bet?” This is lovely, so you’re sort
of pimping him out as a… He gets 10% of it. Yeah. Has he got,
like, Lego and stuff? I mean…
Nah, he’s very active. He had a lesson with
Boris Becker the other day. What? He was being his coach,
yeah. Were you watching? That must be terrifying
for Boris Becker, like, “You’re doing really well,
really, really good. “Please don’t kill me.” What’s your boy’s name?
Cassius. Cassius. Yeah. So, he’s Cassius Haye?
Yeah. I just want to know…
Where did you get that idea? With my kids, I was one of those
fathers that, everything they did, I let them win, you know?
Did none of that come into it? There’s no fun in that,
though, mate. What’s really enjoyable is really
crushing them, like, if I… If I was you, I would’ve gone away
and had secret tennis lessons, then casually just gone,
“Do you want to have a knock-about?” then SLAM! “How about that?! “Where’s Boris now?!” Did you have to pay Boris,
or was it a favour? No, it was a favour.
He heard through the grapevine about Cassius being a good player. One day you know you’re going
to get the call, don’t you? GERMAN ACCENT: “Hello, David… “Perhaps you remember
what I did for your son. “Now is payback time. “I’m stuck in a cupboard.” Could happen, could happen. So, what are you going to say, Lee?
Truth or lie? What do we think?
What do you think, Martin? I think it’s true, because… You’re not listening, are you?
You’re undressing him. Lee, I’m sorry. She’s looking straight past you.
Mel, have some sympathy for the man. No, I… He’s got to
sit there all night. Now I know how Tony Hadley feels. So, what are you going to say? The Boris Becker seems
a bit extraordinary for me. Mel is saying Lie. Martin Kemp. I’m saying True. You’re
saying True. True, Lie… We’ll go with Martin and say…
You’re going to say it’s true? True. OK, David, Truth or Lie? It’s true. THEY CHEER Wow. It’s true, David does refuse to play
his son at tennis since he beat him, aged five.
