OH GOD! Time to leave the UK. Why give money to a bottomless pit?

Well, that just about confirms Ricky Hatton will be in Strictly later on this year.

He's ummed and aahed for years but I think now his credibility is shot, he will more than likely have a go (unless CBB present him with a more tempting offer, of course!)

Replace Steve Jones more like, the man has the comic timing of a broken Taiwanese cuckoo clock.

They'll surely get Margaret Cho over for it?

She's included it in her stand-up routine (which in itself is based around the oddities of South Korean culture)

How much would I have to donate to Comic Relief in return for them agreeing not to transmit this utter bilge?

Seems like a few who are a bit desperate for some attention there.
I'll give it a miss.

It appears that C-list comedians in drag is still a cash cow for them.

I'll second that.
I'd rather eat my own vomit than watch her.

It seems some people haven't heard of the remote control.

It's a wonderful invention.

The first series was great.
But since Robert Webb won it with his Flashdance routine there have been so many contestants in successive series who think they're funny by dressing up in drag and possibly think it's a ticket to give them a better chance of winning.

It'll be interesting to see what comedy lazy arses decide to take the predictable man dressed up as a woman route.

Agreed - comedy is only funny when done seriously.
Just watch the "new " Yes Prime Minister" compared to the originals.

Last year Rowland Rivron was excellent.

Couldn't they find somebody else?
