5 Minutes With The Lasagne Man Himself

Billy Mclean, the man behind the lasagne Wembley prank.

Why a lasagne?
It was one of those weekly dinners that my Mum would make. Heated up after football practice or sitting down with my brothers and sisters. Proper easy for a big group to prepare and chuck in the oven.

Did you think it would go viral?
Absolutely not – it’s mad.

Have you got anymore rumours in the pipeline? 
The Premier League have decided to hold a referendum (because they are always a good idea) on whether Liverpool should be named as League Champions.

Veggie or meat lasagne?
Meat, for old times’ sake.

Best lasagne you’ve ever had? 
Pellicci’s in Bethnal Green, my Mum’s is a close second.

Please talk us through best lasagne etiquette.
No more than two layers of pasta, must have sun-dried tomatoes and mushrooms (cut up small as they should never outshine the mince) and as much cheese as you can get your hands on (minimum of two varieties, like mozzarella and a naughty cheddar).

What should you serve with a lasagne?
I won’t eat a lasagne without chips. Got to soak up all that sauce with something baby.

How much would someone have to pay you to eat the whole lasagne in the stadium? 
Are you joking? I’d pay for that. It would be like Ballie Ballerson but in Béchamel.
