Shane (the poet) is brilliant and I'm so pleased that he got a book deal and a tour out of the exposure the show gave him. Far from a being guy with a learning disability, I see him as a Great British eccentric.
Love the guy with Aspergers as well. I loved the way he took the phone call from the agency, put the phone down, turned to his mum and then paused... "She's from fcuking London!"
I think the show is great and it's nice to get a glimpse of the personalities behind the disabilities.
It was my first thought watching last night (didn't see first series so missed him), I wouldn't have said he has a learning disability, he had more intelligence, character and charisma than most men I've met! Okay his jokes were terrible, but can't blame him for trying with some of the awful dates he was on.
