Grand Designs’ Kevin McCloud has joked he’s ‘got quite good at being rude’ to people approaching him in the street.
The TV presenter, 61, is in the vulnerable category amid the pandemic, so as a result needs to be extra careful when around other people and keep a distance at all times.
Ahead of the latest series of his long-running property programme, Kevin has spoken out about needing to be more assertive around other people, even if that means being rude.
He said: ‘It’s a big thing actually, because we’ve been filming since June and we’ve developed a protocol for all the various places, whether we’re filming in a building or outside, quite diligently.
‘We have Covid compliance officers with us at all times, checking out here, making sure we are all being good.’
‘Also, I’ve got quite good at being rude,’ he added. ‘So if somebody approaches, I say, “excuse me back off! What do you think you’re doing? Be Covid compliant”.
‘I’m quite bad walking down the street now. I tell people off. You can now, I can be completely anonymous in a hat and a mask.’
Grand Designs returns this week with Kevin following a huge new project by army captain Justin, who has forked out £1.8million on his new home.
The house is an abandoned neo-Gothic cemetery keeper’s lodge and adjoining ex-council toilet block in south-west London.
Demolishing the blocks and turning them into an extension, the project has even more issues as the property is surrounded by a grave site.
Grand Designs returns Wednesday at 9pm on Channel 4.
