    Finally catching up with this, but sadly it's right tame and not really what I want from our Jane. Rather than another docu series with her doing a number at the end of each episode (which would have been trash tv heaven), it's Jane with a broom up her arse giving her best tribute to Judith Chalmers (although she's certainly got the same leathery face for it). Diving in at episode 2 (the first isn't available), she's doing Budapest, with the high/low point being forcing out tears with all the subtlety of squeezing grease out a pork pie as she pays tribute to dead Jews. Not even a cameo from Sherrie, T'Brambles or T'Denise Welch, this is Jane's biggest disappointment since the menopause. I'll be watching the lot of course.

    Can't breath.

    Shower me in pork scratchings, she's doing a number! By 'eck that was worth it, my heart is still pumping.

    The rest was shit, but I did like the line "Oooh, look at that marble effect, it's all real!"

    She was in Scotland in the one I saw and it was RIDICULOUS. Someone has to be TAKING THE PISS *sings in Fingal's Cave*

    Also when she FLOATS ON in at the end as a DISEMBODIED HEAD to GIVE US A TUNE over some LOVELY SCENES it really is SHIT TV HEAVEN

    I've been watching this with my parents, it's become EVENT TELEVISION. I think it's the cooing over any old shitty bedroom, then getting lashed and buddying up with the roughest northern tourists she can find that I can relate to. That's pretty much every family holiday I've ever had.

    I only saw the clips on Gogglebox. Belting out Amazing fucking Grace while sat in that boat was just ludicrously brilliant.

    Jane's on good form tonight, lusting after young men. Disappointed her PA didn't hairspray Jane's gob as she went for that Mighty Real high note (a scene that made me recall Geru singing along to Love Never Loved Me with rollers in her hair). I'm salivating over her closing number like a sausage roll in a microwave too long. The crown. The fake fur hat. The RuPaul's Drag Race lipstick mirror goodbye. It's like watching a QVC ad for The Best of Our Jane.

    This is on C5 right now. Jane is dressed as a milkmaid meeting the frumpy Princess Somethingorother who is also the granddaughter of Franz Ferdinand.

    Is this available on catch up or even to Torrent?

    Unbelievably it's completely passed me by but from what I've heard it's event TV.

    If George were alive, he'd probably give crashing another bash. What a woman.

    Knock 'em dead (with your hairspray helmet haor) Jane.

    Did anyone watch this live performance of life? I'll need to keep my eyes on YouTube. God bless this woman and all who sail with/in her.

    The irony of someone else calling themselves "GinaGMC" though, completely forgetting Ms Gardener's disc jockey roots.

    Celebrity Motorhoming featuring Dame Lesley Joseph crying about the sheer emotion of going down a mine followed by this is the ideal Friday night (at least for while my corporeal form is possessed by a depressed middle-aged woman). Channel 5 have conquered both land and ocean.

    She ain't half cashing in this year with the new album and nationwide HOTEL & THEATRE TOUR.

    While I might be ever so slightly tempted to buy tickets for the Aberdeen show if only for the AMAZING GRACE encore, really though how the hell can she pretty much SELL OUT on a national tour?

    I can't imagine the Sinah Warren Hotel has a HUGE capacity but still, how on earth is she managing to sell out so many venues?

    There can't be that many tone deaf gays living with their grandmothers.
