    *WARNING***** Personal Opinion Alert****** Warning*

    I find it hard to believe that so many people watch this tripe!

    This type of programming seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator. Utter, utter b*lls!!!

    Qualifying statement

    By saying "LCD", this is not to imply that ALL viewers of this tripe are in that category. Some of my friends, who I count as intelligent people, watch this too!

    haven't been watching it this year, but looks like they've done a better job with the cast of celebrity characters this year compared with previous years.

    that's half the battle with a show that people know so well. you know what your getting with the tasks and format, it's just whether they put in some interesting and likeable characters.

    I do agree. I haven't watched any of it, but when the story makes BBC news and local news websites I go in search of a clip.


    Anyway, people should lay off Gillian McKeith, I mean hasn't she gone through enough s**t already.......

    Someone pointed out to me that Gillian who eats all the "healthy stuff" is the same age as Nigella Lawson who loves cakes, puddings etc.... Not much of an advert for lentils and stuff is it?!

    She may have gone through a lot of sh1t but I have no sympathy. LOL!

    She's a liar and a fraud.

    Worst of all she wasn't very nice to Dr Ben (Goldacre) and he is a total legend...

    Gillian McKeith vs. Ben Goldacre

    This was mildly entertaining when it first came out, but, like Big Brother, it has run its course and should be put to sleep.

    But that won't happen, whilst sooo many people keep tuning in.

    How else are ITV to entertain the "masses"?

    With original drama? Not got enough cash and/or advertising revenue for it....

    With original comedy? Ditto......

    Sport? You're catering for only a select band of people (Admittedly, I AM in that band!)
