This is my favourite thread ever! I am a great fan of Richard and his Partridgisms! I'm so disappointed that i can't watch him anymore now he's not on Channel 4.

Also, I live near to wear R & J used to live, up north, and a guy I know used to own a shop here. He says that Richard used to shoplift from him for about 2 weeks before he was caught at another shop. Allegedly, of course!

For anyone who hasn't read this thread, feel free to skim your eyes over some of the posts re Richard Madeley's 'partridge-isms'.

This includes you, Richard, if you're on here..... *waves*

It's been a while since I've read this thread, and the 'Partridgisms' still make it a fabulous read.

This Morning celebrated their 21st anniversary today, and guests of honour were Richard and Judy..... Richard, of course, couldn't let the moment slip by without referring to genitalia of some sort....

To much laughter, Richard recalled one early headline-making segment in which the show's resident doctor, Chris Steele, demonstrated how to carry out a testicular examination on a live model.

'The surprise was, in rehearsal the guy hadn't shaved and when we went live, he had shaved,' the presenter said.
We almost all collapsed in fits of laughter.'
Yes dear

Um. Embarrassing confession time... 20 years ago, I skived school for a few days to watch This Morning, because I had a crush on Madeley.

I was 11, that's my only excuse!

It used to be said that everyone looked like Pete Townshend, if they looked in the back of a spoon.


I'd love it if Dicky was on the radio - it would be the unintentionally funniest thing on in years.
and it has happened this week!
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00x2zj9

and not content with that, he has also been on the telly:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/t...ne-review.html

love this bit:
He met one of the descendents of a tribe that his own ancestor – a member of the militia – massacred. He admitted feeling guilt, likening the event to genocide, but remained only thoughtful. Staring heavily, but dry-eyed, into the camera he offered, “This was pretty bad, though, I have to say.”

Also, when I saw his mum, my first thought was 'it's Judy'

Him repeatedly saying ' My Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great Grandfather' was annoyingly Partridge.

Being as it was the Daily Mail, I thought she got off quite lightly.

Dr.Dick Madeley ,his son's a good looking lad
The son is quite attractive <scrubs self clean> I just didn't want to admit it

Luckily, Patrick1 is here to say what I couldn't

edit to add:
what does the son do for a living etc? Obviously not a limelight seeker like the daughter as I've never seen him ice skating/cooking/whatever on the tellybox.

From Popbitch:

>> Dick move <<
Apologising, Madeley style

Now Richard Madeley has no big
TV show to air his thoughts, he
seems to have taken to using his
column in the Sunday Express to
get up people's noses. A quick
run-down of his week:

1) Write fist-shaking,
vein-popping column titled "Risking
A Baby's Life For Lunch" about how
lazy and thoughtless paramedics are
for occasionally needing to eat and
piss and breathe. Berate a specific
ambulance service who helped save
the life of a baby.

2) When your piece is reduced to
rubble by people who actually knew
the facts of the case, see the story
pulled from the Express website.

3) Publish a follow-up piece a week
later. Claim follow-up piece is
"no mealy-mouthed apology".

4) Fail to actually say sorry.

5) Act like the rant against
ambulance crews was actually a
rant championing ambulance crews
("hearing their stories it's a
wonder they don't all hand in
their badges...") Forget to point
out that those stories were largely
complaints from medics saying your
story was a load of balls. Or from
the baby's family, who were
shocked at the piece.

The Express kept that quiet, yep links to the article gone but here's one of the comments that were left

B]Shame on you, Richard and DE editors
[/b]
Published: Tuesday January 15,2013 by Hjo295


What a horrible situation for the family to be in but NOT the paramedics' fault! I echo other people on here about the ridiculous call outs that paramedics have to attend when emergency cases are then delayed treatment. Richard Madeley is an idiot for this article and I have submitted my complaint to the PCC for the inaccuracies it contained. Perhaps he'd like to leave his mansion and cushti life for a night shift with some of our brave, selfless medical staff? Actually no, don't do that, Richard.... People really needing an ambulance don't want some jumped up **** who can't think before he opens his mouth/picks up his pen in attendance. Shame on the Daily Express for printing this article. But pretty much the type of pathetic article to be expected from a tabloid.
Madeley out Partridge's Partridge..what a burke, and he bangs on as how he's a trained serious journalist?

No doubt the Express will demand heads should roll that Madeley should be sacked immediately, that the Editor should also go and the paper's owner should donate ALL the profits from his health lottery to the ambulance service.

Then again they'll probably pretend it never happened.
