KP's rough guide to Britain

Kevin Pietersen caricature

'KP' gives his thoughts on why he loves Britain and being British as part of Radio 4's new topical comedy show Look Away Now.

You can listen to the show on Thursday evening (1830-1900BST) - and it is repeated on Friday (2300-2330BST). To find out more - and to win free tickets to recordings of the show - go to the Look Away Now website on the BBC.

Read 'KP's' blog below and listen to his words of wisdom on real ale. Also on this week's show 'Jose Mourinho' reveals his side are big cricket fans, 'Lewis Hamilton' gets bullied and 'Paula Radcliffe' has a colostomy bag fitted for the London Marathon.

"Hello net person! Kevin Pietersen (Hampshire and England) here. I hoped you enjoyed the first episode of Look Away Now. I wish I'd enjoyed it but I didn't actually manage to hear it.

"Andrew Strauss listened to it though. He's a real Radio 4 buff and has, let's face it, had rather a lot of time on his hands of late. He said it was mainly jokes and things, which doesn't really sound like my sort of thing. I mean, I like a bit of a joke now and then but not too many at once. It's hard to keep up.

"Needless to say there are lots of funny guys in the England dressing room. It can be totally funny sometimes. Duncan Fletcher, behind closed doors, is an unbelievable joker. The guy barely stops.

"He's always picking up bits of equipment and pants and things and then putting them on his head and going 'Do you like my new hat?' I think it's hilarious, although not everybody does. Some people think it's just a bit odd.

"Anyway, got to go. Liam Plunkett's giving me a swimming lesson. It's a lot harder than it looks.
