Kevin McCloud: Beat Poet!

Please wait while this video loads. If it doesn't load after a few seconds you may need to have Adobe Flash installed.

Kevin McCloud may very well be the coolest guy on TV. (It’s between him, Jon Snow and the Go Compare dude). Given his artistic bent and facility with words, we’ve long suspected there was a frustrated poet in there somewhere. Well, it turns out we were right. Here is the great man as you’ve never seen him before. Check out this extraordinary number in honour of his new series of Grand Designs.

Questions you may want to ask afterwards:

  1. Did he do that entirely from memory?
  2. Are those the most extraordinary performing eyebrows in showbiz history?
  3. Does he do weddings and bar mitzvahs?

Anyway, enjoy. Eat your heart out, Allen Ginsberg.


Grand Designs starts on Wednesday 4th September (which the sharp-eyed among you will recognise as tonight) at 9pm on Channel 4.
