    The latent homosexual wannabe Bollywood star tonight (I've already forgotten his name) annoyed me SO MUCH.

    I've not been keeping up with this as much recently either, although I try my best to watch the weekday episodes. It helped that they were on before Coach Trip of course but a lot of it is just really BORING. This week though we had Michelle, the most fabulously opinionated loudmouth cover I've seen on this in a long time. That coupled with the fact she had NO SHAME and took her knickers off at one point made me love her quite a lot.

    Oh she sounded fun. Did you watch the cardiff week at the start of the month? I think my favourite moment was when the talkative fat lady turned up at one of the dinnerparties with a cushion she had STOLEN from the house the night before. Not as a joke, but because she 'really liked it'.

    I can't believe she won! I was rooting for her by the end though. She reminded me of that Charlotte women who was on Corrie for a bit and got murdered by Jon Stape in the tram crash episode.

    I watched the Monday episode of the Cardiff ones, but found it very boring so gave up. I do remember fat lady as being the best of a very ropey bunch though.

    I've totally been switching off lately too, they need to STOP with this BARRAGE of shite contestants they seem to be peddling - I MUCH prefered just having some normal fucking people on it.

    There was a good set on More 4 today, I hadn't seen it before, with a really irritating TWAT called Amir who was just thoroughly unpleasant with phrases such as ''I'm giving you the time of day, be glad''. The rest of them seemed lovely though.

    The presenter is awful, it really makes you realise how much Dave Lamb does for the UK version.

    There was an episode on C4 on Monday I think which was the best I had seen in months and months. It had a woman called Bindi (who referred to herself as AUNTY BINDI and got inappropriately drunk during her own dinner) and a guy called Nir who was hilariously egotistical. And all four of them had fucking beautiful homes.

    Has anybody seen any of this week's 5:30 ones? Because Christina the 70 something ex bunny girl is GREAT TV.

    At her dinner party she performed a song she had written for the queen mum, and put nappies on her dogs, and served awful food, and she absolutely HATES other women, and also seems to be an anti-semite. She's very very watchable and isn't the boring tryhard sort of cunt that's been on this show whenever i've watched recently.

    She is marvellous. I loved her night when she got all pissy because they questioned her if she had cooked the prawns and duck in same pan and she started showing of her 'BRAND NEW *insert brand name of pan*' :D

    Christina was indeed a revelation! Infact the whole week was must see... Unfortunately if last night's is anything to go by it's reverted straight back to the over the top try hards.

    The show has done a Big Brother and become a parody of itself, even the narration is grating on me. Such a shame.

    And i'm GUTTED that Christina's Queen Mum song (/all her best bits) hasn't made it onto youtube yet. I still have an episode of her week to watch actually. *much excite*

    They've recently filmed a Glasgow episode - if there are any weegies on this board, I wonder how many of us will know any of them.

    I read today that Jane Horrocks' has based her character in new sitcom Trollied on a Come Dine With Me contestant. Any idea who it could be?

    Did you base Julie on anyone?
    “I watched Come Dine With Me and there was a woman in that who was just like Julie, a real snob who got things a bit wrong and used malapropisms. She was so dismissive of the other competitors and thought that they really wouldn’t know what she was cooking anyway so she was just going to cook rubbish for them. She is on my screensaver on my computer. I don’t look like her, but she was absolutely how I thought Julie would be.”

    A woman I work with is a contestant on it this Friday. She's really quite jolly and should be a bit of a hoot.

    It's a bit POOR in that synopsis I just posted that the women have their age mentioned but the men don't isn't it?

    SHAME ON YOU CHANNEL 4.

    Oh god, there's a long haired TWAT on today's episode who just bitched to the camera about a woman going on about how she met her husband... despite the fact another guest straight out ASKED to hear how she met her husband :confused:

    I'm liking the Italian stallion man though, sleazy as he might be :shy:
