Gordon Ramsay's Cookalong show, invites people to "cookalong" with him on live TV as he prepares a three-course-meal. It has whipped the nation into a cooking frenzy... all except for one Peter Oakley.

Peter is a British "geriatric" who has become very popular with YouTube subscribers since he began his blog geriatric1927 in 2006, posting videos about his life.

His latest contribution to the world of video blogging was a jokey reply to Ramsay's call to arms for people to Cookalong with him on Friday nights.

In the video he tells viewers how to make "a most delightful chicken casserole" while swigging on a glass of white wine and popping a ready-prepared meal into the microwave.

"Soggy vegetables are just the pits."

"It's most important that you time it right because soggy vegetables are just the pits. Nobody likes soggy vegetables," he tells viewers.

Like his previous entries, it has proved a hit with YouTube fans. His entry has been viewed 68,274 times, almost as many as Ramsay's original which has amassed 70,266 hits.
