I think I'll have to. My sense of the ridiculous won't allow me not to!
I think you should take one for the team.

That's probably the best bit of news I've read today.

Oh Mr Bennyboot's rage yesterday was a sight to behold when the new trailer for My Life came on the telly. It came on after we all sat down after his birthday tea. He turned to me without a hint of sarcasm and said "I've had a nice day..but that's RUINED my birthday".

Enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rs5b7rcVkgE

"No headlines" eh?

It seems Pete has done a TOWIE then...

'Peteís up early getting the kids ready for school, and after the school-run, decides to visit his brotherís grave. Itís a sad moment and Andrew's death is still very raw for Pete'

I also think this is a tad too far.
Sell out tour? The whole tour sold out???

I think that is a "Harvey Reunion" statement - only true if the hope that it is true, makes it true.

Whilst I understand losing his brother is a very sad event in his life.. Using said death to sell this series is simply Crass

I agree Betty, last year was bad enough, it looks as if there are no limits for him.

What makes me laugh is his "apologists" will make an excuse and say we are wrong to point out how crass this is ...

I would love to apply and supply past DS posts as evidence of 'press' I've composed about CAN clientele.
For you and Blondie, so you can avoid being filmed at the Barn.

Often Andre takes his latest (cough) great idea, with film crew in tow, to run it by Claire, so you would need to be prepared. The Strawberry BBQ book was some time ago, so he should be due another idea soon.

Does he need viewers that badly that one extra is worth getting excited over?

"Apologists " ?

Isn't that on a par with calling fans "chavs " ?

We are allowed to disagree with you Betty .

...and by attacking the posters, not the post, there is the danger of negating the point.

Hey Momma! Did you see Kavanagh on The Voice? He was speaking of his pride at beating PA to a Smash Hit's Poll Winners Award!

Hi Arty !
No , didn't see The Voice , but it's good to see that PA is the standard of excellence he aimed for !

No wonder he's proud

There was a big family dinner where Andre does a bit of cooking which I reviewed on his last programme, episode 4 I think it was, I purposely omitted everything concerning his brother, but there was one time where Andrew was asking if he could help and Andre said, get some plates, Andrew picked up the wrong plates and Andre seemingly got a bit ratty at him. This has always stuck in my mind since viewing it, sadly I can't find a clip of it, but it was a bit of a mask slipping moment.

I don't really care what his fans say here, because I saw it with my own eyes and thought at the time, "your brother is ill, it's only bloody dinner," and I'm entitled to my opinion

I saw that and it was exactly as you say - irritation. However, I also thought it was a sincere moment and spoke the truth for once, that grief and illness doesn't turn people into saints, and involves all sorts of emotions including anger and impatience as a way of fighting against and coping with the helplessness.

PS. When I do my reviewage, I would like the above comment to be referenced as evidence of my impeccable objectivity! *makes saintly face*
