It features Judge Rinder and Michelle doing a kind of tango with some gymnastics thrown in. It is odd and hilarious in equal measure.

Has anyone else seen it?

Yup. Its awkward. I love jr but I just cant watch it I cant watch people dancing sober anyway

I love it - I was so hoping I wasn't the only one! It makes me laugh every time. I love how Michelle's coming out of her shell on the show a bit more now too - she's all side eye and cheeky smirks!

I saw it, it's a bit bizarre. Having said that, the programme is a bit bizarre too.

I love JR but I always think what made him go from being a serious lawyer to doing almost comic tv which no one takes seriously?

TALKING!

He has a great Radio 4 programme called Raising the Barr. He's very knowledgable but with a great delivery.

I see him as the professor Brian Cox of law, but wrapped up in an entertainment programme ;) I think he's wonderful!

I can't hear a bad word about him he really is hilarious. I want him on MN as guest moderator in AIBU.

YY to Michelle bigging her part up lately.

He's on my 'who would you have to dinner' list. I bet he's got some fab stories and would be very entertaining.

He still has a very successful law practice (I think international money laundering cases are his forte), but I think doing the TV show satisfies his flair for the dramatic wink Apparently he's a lovely, lovely man in real life - I've spotted a few MNers who say they went to uni with him, and I've never heard a bad word. I'd love to meet him myself.

Toughasoldboots Tue 19-Jan-16 09:23:07

I don't like it and I don't like Michelle having a bigger part, it's not working for me.
I won't have a bad word said about him either.

Isn't he Cumberbatch's BFF?

BeautyGoesToBenidorm Tue 19-Jan-16 09:52:13

Benadryl Cabbagepatch officiated at JR's wedding, and I think JR was his best man, or one of them.

Sparklingbrook Tue 19-Jan-16 10:01:37

YY that was it.

The80sweregreat Tue 19-Jan-16 10:14:04

I think he should do Strictly this year! I know nothing about dancing but he seems very co- ordinated.
I saw him on University challenge ( well, the last five minutes) over Christmas and he seemed a bit shy and totally different to how he is on his show.

Sparklingbrook Tue 19-Jan-16 10:16:06

YY he would be good on Strictly. Not so much in the jungle, I can't see him liking that.

But I doubt he would do any reality TV. He's not desperate.

Boogers Tue 19-Jan-16 10:30:35

I thought he was married to Benedict Cumberpatch's brother and Benedict officiated at their wedding? Don't mind either bloke personally, and like harryhausen said he's the Brian Cox of law. I might have watched the programme once or twice...! smile

BeautyGoesToBenidorm Tue 19-Jan-16 10:38:18

He's married to a guy called Seth Cummings not that I've ever looked JR up online, oh no, not me

IPityThePontipines Fri 22-Jan-16 00:05:06

Don't get me wrong, I love JR and agree the "Brian Cox of Law" tag is very apt, which is great as I think UK law is very poorly understood by many.

I would LOVE him to be on Strictly.

iklboo Fri 22-Jan-16 14:07:10

He'd certainly give Craig a run for his money!

IPityThePontipines Fri 22-Jan-16 16:18:02

I think the ad might be him setting out his stall for the Strictly producers.

PunkrockerGirl Fri 22-Jan-16 16:20:10

I love JR and the ad is brilliant!

Shakey15000 Fri 22-Jan-16 16:24:38

Arf at Benedryl Cabbagepatch, that's bloody genius grin

I would love to have a drinking session with JR. I think I'd pass out laughing.

imwithspud Fri 22-Jan-16 21:27:20

But I doubt he would do any reality TV. He's not desperate.

Not yet anyway, there's always a chance further down the line grin

I love JR, he's fab. And hilarious. Blows Judge Judy out of the water, and Jeremy Kyle for that matter.

Think the dance is great fun. However have got reservations about exploitation of people with MH and LD as well as gratuitous exposure for d list celebs. One case before Christmas had previously appeared on Neighbours from Hell.
