Video: Jeremy Paxman and Boris Johnson take to the streets on a tandem
"It's a bloody nightmare" to cycle in London, TV presenter tells mayor in clip from final show
Jeremy Paxman presents BBC2 show Newsnight for the final time tonight – and to mark the occasion, he goes for a spin on a tandem with Mayor of London, Boris Johnson.
The pair have regularly crossed swords in the past, and if this trailer of this evening’s show is anything to go by, we’re in for more of the same as Paxman leaves the programme after hosting it for a quarter of a century.
“I want to show you how delightful it is to cycle in London,” Johnson tells Paxman, who regularly rides his bike to work in the city.
“It is not delightful to cycle in London, it’s a bloody nightmare!” he replies.
