Er, yeah... I guess it's *just* like that bizarre and unwieldy analogy. ;-)

Seriously, have you been snorting Scarface-sized piles of bicarb of soda while watching a "Great British Bake Off"...

Just come across this thread. But the comment above made me think of the ultimate "good news... bad news" scenario, at least if you're a 16 or 17 year old desparate to get into a club.

By the way, has there been any news on the big-budget HD remake of "Pages from Ceefax"? :D

Yes, it's because- as happened with previous decades- the people who were kids in the 90s have now reached their mid-20s to early-30s and are old enough to start viewing their childhoods twenty years...

Never heard of them, and according to Wikipedia they only ever released a bunch of 7" singles that didn't get into the Top 40.

I suppose technically he was (and is) a singer, but let's face it- Peter Andre's job is being a professional "celebrity", regardless of what he supposedly does.

Possibly the reason is that they have a cut version suitable for daytime showing, and they just used that one anyway, either because it was simpler (and/or they were lazy) or for some other reason.
