The Teapot Challenge with Michelle, Phil and Nicci.


Joined by Billericay Street Pastor, Phil Norton and Hazle’s Pottery Barn’s, Nicci Swainbank to reveal who had won the “Teapot Challenge“.

The Challenge – 

We had five minutes to make a teapot out of clay with the help of the team at Hazle’s Pottery Barn. There is only so much help one can have before nature takes over and you produce the teapots shown above. We were against the timer!

Mine can hold an egg cup of water before it falls out the spout and Phil’s resembled something a gentleman might use when bedridden in hospital! Nicci’s was better but the teapot lid look liked someone had taken a bite out of it. Still, we all styled it out with our wonderful hand painted creations (all but Phil who painted the teapot blue and had someone else draw the design).

Laughter aside, Hazle’s raised over £350.00 for Billericay Street Pastors with a 12 hour pot-ta-thon.

Here Phil talks about the important work that Billericay Street Pastors do (all volunteers) and Nicci explains why a sense of community is so important.


Who won? I mean CLEARLY you can see just from the picture below???????????? (Its not the hat).

About Michelle Ward

I've been part of the Phoenix FM team since August 2009 and I've been presenting the mid-morning show Eat My Brunch since October of that year. Besides being a radio presenter, I am also a singer/songwriter. Promoting unsigned music and having artists hear their music on my radio show is my passion. My show has a lot of interaction from listeners on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, who regularly join in on my Question of the Day. I get to interview local charities, businesses, organisations, singers and celebrities. I love having live music in the studio too - I’ve been lucky to have had some amazing guests over the years. The show is quirky, different, funny and honest. I don’t half ramble! Give it a try, weekdays 10am – 1pm.
