Sir Norman was speaking after his return from a brief trip to the United States. where he was interviewed by the LA Times to promote World Tripe Day. "It was very much a case of 'hands across the ocean'. Tripe is very popular in parts of the USA, and it was exciting to share our plans with tripe lovers over there," Sir Norman said.
Sir Norman confirmed that Tripe Dog finalists would no longer be required to take part in a 'dance-off', following complaints that last year's final was demeaning for the participants.
