Tim Peake is dreaming of gorging on pizza while he lands back on earth in two weeks

Tim Peake is coming back home in under 21 days, and he really wants to get some pizza . What’s space compared to a nice tasty pizza, hey?

Despite having experienced the wonders of space – he says that his spacewalk gave him “an amazing feeling” – he just wants some good old junk food.

He also mentions missing salad and fresh fruit, possibly aware that his mother would be watching.

Speaking to BBC Breakfast , Tim says that he is looking forward to coming back home.

He fully intends to continue his work with the European Space Agency, and looks forward to more British astronauts following in his moon boots, as he follows in Helen Sharman ‘s.

He also says that it’s been amazing watching the seasons change over our planet, and that’s given him wanderlust – the icy terrain of Patagonia being top of the list for a visit.

Major Peake has been on the International Space Station for just under six months. Since he’s been in space, he’s run the London Marathon , prank-called a pensioner and piloted a robot on the ground in England .
