I haven’t had a glass of Cava for months and months but Graham Norton is on later and amazingly found a bottle at the back of the cupboard. Cork was solid no movement whatsoever...... so tea towel over the cork, kitchen door primed open, insert bottle/cork in between door frame, carefully pull the door towards you and twist the bottle. Hey Presto a gentle pop and now sat with a lovely fizzy glass. Feel free to use, in the past I’ve resorted to digging the cork out with a fork in sheer desperation. 🍾🍾

Just use a saber

I had that around Christmas. I used pliers.

the trick with a saber (or the back of a knife) works remarkably well.
