NOEL: Has it been valued? It’s insured yeah.
INTERVIEWER: Is it? And is it covered for theft and fire damage?
NOEL: Well, yeah, it had to be because there’s a lot of fire in the show. And I use a lot of hairspray, it’s no secret. I use probably seven or eight cans a day. And, erm, so we had to be really careful. There’s a lot of scenes around fires for some reason aren’t there. There’s a fire in the desert.
NOEL: Quite a lot of fire scenes. Fire in a log cabin. So obviously the two… We didn’t want a Michael Jackson incident to occur, so, yeah, it’s insured. Half a million. (Turning to Julian) Your hair’s not insured at all is it?
JULIAN: Yes it is.
INTERVIEWER: How much?
JULIAN: Twelve pence.
NOEL: Twelve fifty. You get some Boots vouchers back don’t you, if your hair goes up.
JULIAN: Yeah. Some WHSmith vouchers if my hair goes up in flames.
NOEL: But there was a wig of my own hair, so, could have made the switch probably and no-one would have known. Everyone thinks my hair’s a wig anyway. It’s the first question, fans always come up and go “Is that real?” and grab it and I go “Ow, yeah it is”.
