But if there's one thing we've learnt from this week's episode it's that Mel Giedroyc should never be allowed on television EVER again
Well, I have to admit to never having seen her on TV before...

When I saw people posting about Mel G I thought they meant Scary Spice

The extra ten minutes that were included in the 'extra storage' edition was even worse for Cilla talking crap. Probably why that was the section that got cut from the main show. Still, Mel's vending machine rant was good.

Just remembered about the clips they used to describe Hyper Foreignism. It was from a show called Simply Italian.

The host was Welsh Italian so will have had some infulence as to why she pronounces the words the way she does. What irked me and some others was the inconcistency.

As they pointed out when the listed off all the words and then said they were disappointed with her pronunciation of bolognaise as they were expecting more

Cilla really was embarrassing! I like Hugh and Mel so it was a shame that they weren't at their best. The first episode where I haven't really had an opinion on which ones should go in.

Well, I don't know about you, but I'm not into baking.

I'll cook my dinner, and I do watch Masterchef the Professionals, but that's about the extent of my cookery programme watching.

Can't watch it this week. Not with Whitehall. I can just about tolerate crappy comedians on panel shows and stuff... But Room 101 is like that 100 Most Annoying People countdown. There's something especially annoying about people who are genuinely irritating having the front to say who or what irritates them.

I should have known better but I watched it. Couldnt agree with you more. Whitehall's capacity to irritate knows no bounds and, having swerved most shows hes in of late, he was a pain in this too. Seems to have had the same effect on Frank Skinner though who didnt seem that impressed with him.

No he wasn't was he. It's a prime example of how classy Frank Skinner is as a comedian, compared to unfunny Whitehall.

It was a good show though. The seagull bit made me laugh out loud.

What's wrong with Jack Whitehall? Is this inverted class snobbery rearing its head?

This thread has taught me never to watch/avoid a programme based on the opinions expressed on here! I saw this episode on iplayer and experienced none of the hatred you folk seem to have for those featured. I didn't see any animosity between Skinner and Whitehall. It was a pleasant little show (although I'll concede it was foolish of Whitehall to smother himself in cosmetics).

Or it could just be that some people don't find him funny, regardless of his background?

I'm not his biggest fan by any means but he didn't irritate me on Room 101. I thought it was a decent episode in general.

Don't much like Whitehall myself. But the truth is he distinctly had Skinner laughing quite hard at least a couple of times.

I thought it was the best overall line up of the series so far. I think Greg Davies has been the best guest but Whitehall and Anderson were good.

Certainly didn't see any real animosity. Perhaps some comedic ribbing.

Was really looking forward to Jo Brand on this tonight but it was a really flat show

I suppose i will always long for the old one-to-one format

I thought that was better than some of the previous ones. As much as I love Ben it was a bit odd that he won them all, shoelaces was ridiculous, it's only because he can't do them (which I find hard to believe). He was spot on with homeopathy though.

I'm totally with Ben Miller on the pedestrian thing I'm a fast walker and hate when people suddenly stop or block the street in little groups Spanish students spring to mind.

I know what you mean about these groups of Spanish students as I find them quite annoying too.

I dread every summer when they appear in packs anywhere...not only they tend to block any path you walk on, they talk rather loudly enough for a deaf person to hear them yakking across the road. Also they doesn't seem to know what the word 'queue' means when it comes to using bus stops/shops/rail stations...ARRGH!!

I would like it if they were put in quarantine at the airport they could do all the tourist type shopping they want and learn a bit of English while they are there, never venturing out of the airport to annoy ordinary people who just want to get on in there normal way without the annoyance of Spanish students.
