I was wondering this too. I guess maybe they felt the cost of the audience guests travel and hotel wasn't justified given they don't actually contribute anything. Shame though.

Appears Mr Rankin was today's "entertainment". I dread to think what else he would've come out with if there were more people to talk to

It crossed my mind about the cost.

If they don't contribute anything (which they don't) then why is it a shame?

I mean its a shame for those viewers who would like to be in the studio. Personally I don't think it makes much difference to the content of the programme.

Although to be honest, they always looked uncomfortable, sat there with no food, no conversation. Just ignored at the end of the table ........

True enough. I wonder if the celebrity guest even spoke to them. The only one I remember acknowledging a conversation, and remembered their names, was John Barrowman.

The guest viewers were 99% of the time two not unattractive ladies. Perhaps James is worn out.

It is unlikely the BBC would have paid for them.
I would pressume that they would have been given transport
but I doubt a hotel would have been used for them out of the BBCs pocket.
I prefer them not being there other then the table looks half empty.

I also dont see the point in the celebrity guest thats plugging their latest project. Their talk segment is at the same time as the skills test and so James has to keep switching conversations so that we can keep up with both where as i would rather focus on the food.

Nothing to do with the show, but BIB typical of JB - he gets a lot of stick, but he's polite and friendly to a fault and would instinctively realise that people not used to being on TV would possibly be feeling a bit 'out on a limb' on a live TV show. If I was stuck in the same situation I'd choose JB to be my companion too (what a sad loss to female kind that man is, lol!)

Every saturday withut fail I watched Saturday Kitchen, now it is just another cookery programme with nine times out of ten a boring (i have to be on TV) guest. - today I watched the last five minutes, the first time in three weeks.

BRING BACK THE VIEWER GUESTS - GET RID OF THE CELB.

James Martin is the only reason to watch it and he is on many shows

Er, the viewer guests did nothing, were generally simply ordinary members, they were hardly ever interviewed, they added little to the programme. So how can that be a loss?

I have to agree, they added absolutely nothing whatsoever, no loss.

Today's SK was one of the best I have seen in ages. Angela Hartnett (sp) was on top form and showed off her pasta making skills. The viewer guests are not missed at all!

Today's edition was informative and fun! Really enjoyed it and feel very inspired to cook some of the dishes - probably because they were easier than some in the past, and the ingredients are easy to source.

Sometimes I feel that the chefs see the opportunity to promote their restaurants, show off, and use ingredients none of us would ever come across. There was quite a bit of restaurant promotion this morning, but at least I felt I could attempt most of the recipes.

Do you know I'd entirely forgotten about the viewer guests?

I was searching on here to see if there was a proper SK thread and stumbled on this one.

I used to think they were out of place a bit too. I think it's better in its present format.

Matt Tebbutt is definitely my chefy eye candy. But he wasn't great when he stood in for James on SK. Matt does a have a slightly 'off' feeling to his presenting some times.

If the viewer guests added nothing to the programme, then why were they included in the first place?

Something that seemed a good idea on paper, but didn't work out as intended in practice.

It does happen.

I need to know more about this!

When did this show start, and did they have viewer guests from the outset, or were they introduced later? Does sound a bit of a strange one, having the (probably terrified) public on (I assume) live TV?

I was just speculating, so I can't really help you there.
