    H​ere is an opportunity as rare as lockdown. Your chance to ask a fat-faced bloke with crap hair absolutely anything you want, and he is obliged to answer.

    U​nless, that is, you are being rude or impertinent, or particularly irrelevant, or pretending to be an innocent participant while working in secret for a marketing agency, in which case he won't.

    A​nd, inevitably, as you work your way down through the small print of this once-in-a-lifetime proposition, it becomes ever less appealing. It's a bit like one of those souvenir plates featuring the face of someone from the royal family, which you pay for through a crippling monthly direct debit that will be inherited by your grandchildren long after you're gone.

    H​e's only going to answer five questions. Which five, I hear you cry, from the misery of your confinement? That's where you come in (or go out, if you've already had enough of this).

    S​imply leave your question in the comments section below. Once you've posted, you're duty bound to award one of the other questions a TribeCoin badge. In a couple of weeks we'll find the five questions with the most awards and May will answer them right here on DriveTribe (Unless they're inappropriate – see above).

    If you need more TribeCoin, simply click on the golden coin. And you can read our Guide to TribeCoin if you are of a suspicious nature and you think we're going to steal your identity and sell it to a foreign superpower.

    • Mr. May, If you could have dinner with three historic individuals, living or dead, who would they be and why? Thank you for providing such wonderful programs, books, wild shirts and such. You are a prince of a fellow. Gretchen

      • This one is almost impossible to answer. I’ve settled on Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, and Margaret Thatcher. I think the discussion could be interesting, and coming up with the menu might be a challenge. Thatcher is the wild card, by...

    • Is there a chance of "Our Man In..." coming to India in the future?

        5 months ago
      • Yes, to be honest. It’s one of the places on our list, and a bit of a favourite. We would have filmed one by now, normally, but things went a bit mango-shaped.

    • Where’s the next ‘Our Man In.....?’ going to be filmed?

        5 months ago
      • Difficult to say. We have a few planned, but none of them are possible for now. I have proposed ‘Our man in Hammersmith’, but Amazon haven’t got back to me.

      • Thanks for answering . Pleased to hear you’ve got a few planned, it was (sparing your blushes) excellent & if Amazon have any sense they should recommission more than one series. You could be your own Yujiro in...

    • Dear James, you've brilliantly done Wine Adventures in France and California. How about Germany?

    • Hello so if you had to choose 5 ingredients to cook for the rest of your life, what would you choose? Thanks in advance!

        5 months ago
      • That’s quite tricky. Assuming I’m allowed access to basics like cooking oil, soy sauce, spices etc… chicken, trout, lentils, sprouts, fish fingers.

          4 months ago
      • Well, the fish fingers are the absolute wildcard in that ingredient list.🙀
