A Close Shave is the sixty-third webisode in the KateModern video series.


(Gavin is standing in the bathroom, wearing a towel. A shower can be heard in the background.)

Gavin: Good morning there, Gav fans! I hope you're all all right. I'm sorry I've not been able to post a blog for a while - not as much as I'd like - because Tariq's been keeping me busy at work, and Charlie's been keeping me busy at home, if - if you know what I mean. (laughs) So I thought I would invite you to join me on my weekly shaving ritual. Tariq, sorry, mate, if you're looking for your razor, I borrowed it. I owe ya one. But before we start, I think we should all just take a moment to, just to approve of... (examines his physique) You know what, for a skinny boy, that is not bad. That's not bad. Put me on any football pitch in the world and I'm...

(Kate opens the door and comes in.)

Kate: Lock the door in the future, Gav. (Her eyes drift downwards... to Gavin's towel.) And Gav, that's my towel. Can you wash it when you're finished?

Gavin: Wasn't the towel you were looking at! She was looking! (Zooms in on his lower abs and dances a bit while humming. He puts the camera down and rinses his face. Then he applies Gillette shave gel to his face.) This is not easy with one hand. Right... wet the razor, shave. (Begins shaving.) Tariq said his date went quite well, believe it or not. Cannot believe that I have a girlfriend and Tariq's out playing the field. Although, I tell you what. I bet this new girl can't be half as exciting as mine. Apparently he met her on the internet. She's probably crazy. Well, more crazy.

(Door opens and Charlie comes in.)

Charlie: Look at the mess you've made!

Gavin: What?

Charlie: And that's Kate's towel. You can't use that! (Yanks towel off.)

Gavin: Ahh!


  • This is the first time Gavin has referred to Charlie as his girlfriend in a video.
  • The title of this blog could be a reference to the Wallace and Gromit short animation of the same name.
  • This is the second video with its setting in the bathroom.
  • The football references are probably due to Ralf Little's football background.
