A fourth series of In And Out Of The Kitchen has been commissioned by BBC Radio 4, but is unlikely to be recorded before the middle of 2015.

The first three series have been released on CD. You can buy them here.

A television version (3 episodes for BBC 4) was recorded in April last year. It has the same cast as the radio series – Miles, Justin Edwards, Selina Cadell, Philip Fox, Lesley Vickerage and Brendan Dempsey – and is directed by Mandie Fletcher. There is a possibility of it being broadcast in late March. 2015.

The DVD and the CD of the live show of Fibber In The Heat – Miles’ tale about idiotically blagging his way into the press corp during an England cricket tour of India – have now been released by Go Faster Stripe. The show was originally performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2010 where it received over 20 four star reviews, and Miles subsequently performed the show on two tours of the UK. You can buy it here.

Miles’ book about the trip was shortlisted for both The William Hill Sports Book Of The Year and the MCC and Cricket Society Book Of The Year in 2012 and a second edition has now been released. You could buy that here. If you would like to.

Miles filmed parts in 3 different films last July. So that’s good. But he also has parts in a few upcoming movies that he filmed in 2013: Jon Stewart’s directorial debut Rosewater (click here to see a Jupp-free trailer) and  The Last Sparks Of Sundown. Owing to some sort of oversight, Miles does feature in its trailer. Which is here. The film has just won both Best Director and Best feature at The Chicago Comedy Film Festival. (It’s real. It’s got a website)

Lots of stuff Miles has done on BBC Radio 4 over the last few years is available to download (admittedly for a fee) from this place; episodes of The News Quiz, Just A MinuteI’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue and the like.
