Anyone?!

Well I really enjoyed the whole thing, though we always record so we can run on the ads and the chat.
Glad it wasn't a popularity competition but personally think it would have benefitted from there not being any eliminations and everyone doing every event until the end like Superstars. At least that way we would have only the injured leaving and everyone having a chance to have a go at everything.
Well done to Joe and thought Ritchie was totally brilliant.

According to this Radio Times article Joe was on a skiing holiday in Austria when he got the call to replace Henry Conway. The others had 2 months training.

Meant to say, it has warmed me up for the Winter Olympics! Can't wait until they start on Friday, now.

Just watched. I don't know why Ritchie wasn't reinstated when Steve was injured out of the show? It made the rest of the show very strange, there was no point to the last event before the jump as no one was eliminated.

I would love there to be another series, but I expect that insurance issues would forbid it.

Maybe there wasn't anyone left uninjured! Maybe they would factor that in for the next series, ie do a count back and reinstate whomever was eliminated closest to the final, in this case it would have been Ritchie.

I don't understand why they couldn't put someone back in.

Bit of an anti-climax. I notice they reduced the programme length as presumably there was supposed to be a 3rd place jump off and another race.

2.6m launch night, 2.3m second night. No info for the remainder.

Sparklingbrook Mon 03-Feb-14 22:11:19

I really enjoyed it on the whole.Not sure what the viewing figures are like.

Joe's a worthy winner but total respect to all/most of them

bisjo Mon 03-Feb-14 22:03:14

They've all been really game. The only one that wasn't was Amy who came across as pretty unpleasant.

bisjo Mon 03-Feb-14 21:59:28

Joe's nice. I've never heard of him before this.

Sparklingbrook Mon 03-Feb-14 21:58:33

DH is getting arsey and saying he doesn't care about the result now.

Eddie's fab

Sparklingbrook Mon 03-Feb-14 21:57:25

What does the winner get?

fairyqueen Mon 03-Feb-14 21:56:48

He also had the least time to pick up injuries

bisjo Mon 03-Feb-14 21:56:16

Joe's going to win and he's had the least training out of all of them.

Pimpf Mon 03-Feb-14 21:54:11

Love Eddie

bisjo Mon 03-Feb-14 21:53:03

Eddie's lovely, isn't he? He came across as a lovely bloke in Splash too.

DoctorTwo Mon 03-Feb-14 21:49:16

Joe has been a revelation, especially as he'd not done much, if any, skiing prior to this show. Marcus showed tremendous bottle doing that with an injured knee, I know how much a knee injury hurts, suffering one myself.

boatclub Mon 03-Feb-14 21:48:53

hehe would David and Victoria have to do it 3 legged stylee? Gove would fail the entrance exam.

Sparklingbrook Mon 03-Feb-14 21:48:38

Sorry bisjo, i am watching TV, typing and DH is still talking to me. I am trying to keep up-honest!

bisjo Mon 03-Feb-14 21:48:34

Gabby would be the AT equivalent as I imagine she's fiercely competitive.

fairyqueen Mon 03-Feb-14 21:48:17

Good point. I aassume Bruce Forsyth would be out of the question too?
