I might cook the wife an omelette; BONE IDOL: James cracks it.

Byline: By Dayle Crutchlow

HE'S never cooked a meal in his life, but that didn't stop Coventry and Warwick-shire's laziest man being put through his paces by the head chef at Coombe Abbey Hotel.

James Dunn was the winner of the Evening Telegraph's Bone Idol competition and one of his prizes was a cookery lesson from the head chef at the luxury hotel near Coventry.

Poor Cyril Strub certainly had his work cut out with the 58-year-old lazybones, a self-confessed stranger to the kitchen.

James, of Kineton Road, Kenilworth, said: "It was all a completely new experience to me.

"I've never even boiled an egg before."

Cyril soon put that right.

James said: "He had me boiling an egg, making an omelette and cooking a steak sandwich.

"It was good fun actually. I found it all quite enjoyable."

But is James a changed man? Will he transfer his new-found skills to the kitchen at home?

Aware that long-suffering wife Wendy was listening, James, who works in fabrication for an automatic door company, said: "Of course I will.

"Well, the wife thinks it's made a difference. In truth, I'll probably make one omelette for her and that will be it."
