It's no different to a football chairman saying he has complete faith in his manager- and then sacking him 2 or 3 matches later.

He was never likely to say 'I have my doubts' or 'It's not going very...

She's 'pulling faces' as you put it, because ITV have clearly TOLD HER to do that.

Well- I'm glad I watched that.

You made her sound like a tyrant.

I saw a perfectly reasonable woman, making perfectly reasonable points about how the BBC commissions documentaries.

Did I imagine it, or did Trueblood say he was studying medicine?

The thought of being told 'Dr Trueblood will see you now' and then seeing his face would terrify me.

Susanna Reid has 217,000 followers on twitter.

At this rate it won't be long before ITV would be better off telling her to stay at home and tweet the latest news and showbiz gossip.
