Anyone watching?

Love how Christian just keeps printing tickets for this Magic Ball!!

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Dec-12 20:30:01

Nooooo. Have I missed it?

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Dec-12 20:30:47

Found it. What have I missed?

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Dec-12 20:31:21

Rancid pool?

Ooh- poor people

TheWombat Sun 30-Dec-12 20:32:54

Ugh, that pool did look a bit yuck. hmm

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Dec-12 20:34:14

Magic Ball <arf>

glamourousgranny42 Sun 30-Dec-12 20:35:56

Christian is back. Mark is still mad. He's decided to attract 'posh' people by advertising in the guardian and they have sold tickets for a gala 'magic ball' but not told the chef he needs to come up with a menu until 2 weeks before!

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Dec-12 20:36:02

Ooh brummies.

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Dec-12 20:36:58

'ladytime?' confused

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Dec-12 20:37:31

She didn't try hard enough? shock

PartyFops Sun 30-Dec-12 20:38:17

See the size of that plate of food for what must only be an early 2 year old shock

hippoCritt Sun 30-Dec-12 20:39:08

Sparkling I was just coming to post that, what?

This is unbearable, who would be so bothered about attending the crap magic ball?

glamourousgranny42 Sun 30-Dec-12 20:40:16

And he asked when the decorators were in! Yuk!

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Dec-12 20:43:45

I need to know how she didn't try hard enough to get pregnant.

PartyFops Sun 30-Dec-12 20:44:35

hilarious!

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Dec-12 20:45:17

Cringe! Moving the family with money.

Fawning over the supposed rich family

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Dec-12 20:46:22

Run out of cheesecake. sad Are they from Iceland?

TheWombat Sun 30-Dec-12 20:46:26

Rofl @ the fire alarm

PartyFops Sun 30-Dec-12 20:47:47

So there isn't even a proper magician? for a MAGIC ball? FFS

fergoose Sun 30-Dec-12 20:49:20

it is too excruciating to watch in places

Darkesteyes Sun 30-Dec-12 20:49:25

His comment about not wanting to sit where "poor people" sit was disgusting. Im glad Alison pulled him up on it.
Bet he votes Tory.

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Dec-12 20:50:52

She's reading Fifty Shades. grin For inspiration so she can try harder?

fergoose Sun 30-Dec-12 20:51:38

It's up for sale now - surprisingly

I feel sick

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Dec-12 20:51:48

Mummy's going to do a wee on a stick!

curlyclaz13 Sun 30-Dec-12 20:52:15

so bad it's good !
' will have to try harder' grin grin

Darkesteyes Sun 30-Dec-12 20:52:33

Was he the one jetskiing. Wonder what hobby his wife has!

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Dec-12 20:52:38

See-not trying hard enough.

glamourousgranny42 Sun 30-Dec-12 20:54:13

Jetski man is a tosser!!

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Dec-12 20:54:19

How much is it fergoose?

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Dec-12 20:54:49

receptionist still hasn't got a jacket big enough.

fergoose Sun 30-Dec-12 20:55:10
Darkesteyes Sun 30-Dec-12 20:56:01

Agree glamorousgranny. Thats why im wondering if his wife has a hobby too. But ive read enough threads on here to think that i know the answer to that question already.

sandiy Sun 30-Dec-12 21:07:50

I went to an x mas doo there a few days ago sadly it's changed hands but maintains its unique charm by that I mean it's grubby.The first room I was given was literally being renovated.as in. I had a power tool and wood on the bed the second had nt been made up properly but to be fair I paid thirty nine quid for dinner dance bed and breakfast with eleven of my closest friends and partners we were so slaughtered that we would nt have noticed anyway.

mrsjay Mon 31-Dec-12 09:37:36

I love how they are all stuck in 1980 Mark is bonkers the chef is about a hundred and a magic ball with wedding chair bows grin loved it although the pool was minging and I ,arfed> when mark said oh these people are going to pay have a seat,

mrsjay Mon 31-Dec-12 09:39:45

they did 1 2 years ago in the lake district. that was a better series imo not surprised its up for sale

Sparklingbrook Mon 31-Dec-12 11:36:01

I liked the Lake District one. I wonder whether they should have sent her from the Hotel Inspector to sort out Mark. That would have been funny. grin

mrsjay Mon 31-Dec-12 11:40:09

I wonder whether they should have sent her from the Hotel Inspector to sort out Mark. That would have been funny.

could imagine alex thingy putting her finger along his headboards grin

Sparklingbrook Mon 31-Dec-12 11:51:02

She would have had a field day wouldn't she and it would have been hilarious. grin

I love this show! The first series was better.

Very funny that the comments on jetski man are exactly what me and my OH said about him! Then...they said where they live, and it is the same place as us!! shock

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 19:49:10

Oooh it's on again in then minutes.....

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 19:49:29

*ten

Having to tape it with Dancing on Ice and Family Fortunes!

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 19:59:38

ooh a drunken groom.

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:11:57

no kit kats? grin

hurricanewyn Sun 06-Jan-13 20:15:38

I hadn't watched this before - how have I missed it. It's compelling, for all the wrong reasons!

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:17:13

Isn't it just hurricane. Watch from behind a cushion. grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:18:35

ooh it's like Hotel Inspector. grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:20:23

The Tickles look fun. sad

TaggieCampbellBlack Sun 06-Jan-13 20:22:19

I'm trying to persuade DH that we must go to the GroSvener for a weekend.

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:22:28

Flies on the salad.

qazxc Sun 06-Jan-13 20:23:20

shock and cringe.

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:23:35

Taggie that could be the answer to your break in March. grin You said you wanted basic-no Kit Kats. wink

love, love, love them all...can't imagine how they've stayed in business this long though and I do hope his son is on this series, he was comedy gold.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 06-Jan-13 20:27:04

Luke is so nice

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:27:21

Top and tailing with your Mum the night before her wedding. confused

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:28:46

<dashes down to fridge for a kit Kat during ads>

TaggieCampbellBlack Sun 06-Jan-13 20:32:10

So very much my answer to my March break dilemma.

Or maybe the Damson Dene?

Mynewmoniker Sun 06-Jan-13 20:33:32

oooo exciting! The inspectors giving feedback!

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:34:16

This should be good.

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:35:05

2ish. sad

Christian you're a 'dreammaker'

...but he let them have those chair covers....

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:37:21

The bride has back boobs. sad

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:38:53

Why a Welsh wedding in Torquay? Did I miss that bit?

he's Welsh..

I didn't quite twig that was why they had the red and green

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:40:07

Not being mean about the bride. Most people having squeezed into that dress would look the same.

She does look happy

qazxc Sun 06-Jan-13 20:42:03

forget about saving people from drowning, fill the form!

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:42:26

The wedding comes first. wink

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:43:34

Oh no. This won't end well.......

hurricanewyn Sun 06-Jan-13 20:43:58

Whiskey from the bottle in the car park shock

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:44:08

Actually that dress is just too small.

qazxc Sun 06-Jan-13 20:44:08

oh dear drunken groom alert.

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:44:29

<cringe>

Thought he was looking a bit sheepish in the interview...

He's probably still banned from anything fun, if she has any sense

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:44:52

shock

fergoose Sun 06-Jan-13 20:45:04

I am watching from behind my hands - excruciating

NorbertDentressangle Sun 06-Jan-13 20:45:41

DD decided that the bride didn't have back boobs, it was just a particularly high bum crack grin

hurricanewyn Sun 06-Jan-13 20:46:39

Smiling at him while he's pulling down his trousers - I'd be looking to see if I coulg get an anullment

Mynewmoniker Sun 06-Jan-13 20:48:27

I wonder how the wedding chicken will turn out without the filling. Preparation, preparation, preparation...not!

Mynewmoniker Sun 06-Jan-13 20:49:57

He didn't have to drink it did he!?

Horses for courses I 'spose but to be sure, I have just double checked with DH that he understands there are no circumstances under which him taking his trousers off in public would be classed as 'entertaining'

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:51:05

Anniversary Cava. Bless.

Mynewmoniker Sun 06-Jan-13 20:51:18

Mr Tickle's getting worse poor love...he wouldn't know where he was. She could take him anywhere and tell him it's the regular hotel, bless him.

hurricanewyn Sun 06-Jan-13 20:51:36

I like the Tickles

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:52:16

The Tickles are sweet. bet he didn't drop his trousers at their wedding.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 06-Jan-13 20:52:23

Blimey, fast asleep in a football shirt on your wedding day.

Mynewmoniker Sun 06-Jan-13 20:52:29

She's right saying it's shocking with Christian's attitude.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 06-Jan-13 20:52:44

Those inspectors are bloody wankers.

I like the Tickles too and wish them lots of joy.

Christian though...

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 06-Jan-13 20:53:34

Tickles are mint. Loved them last time.

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:53:50

Cringe, this is awful. Where is Alex Polizzi when you need her. the Receptionist needs sacking.

Chubfuddler Sun 06-Jan-13 20:54:17

Are their only guests people who stay there for a laugh?

The Groom is an absolute dickhead.

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:54:56

Alcoholic beverages. grin

Chubfuddler Sun 06-Jan-13 20:55:14

Isn't it her husbands fault he's pissed up?

hurricanewyn Sun 06-Jan-13 20:55:16

It's the grooms fault for drinking the bloody stuff!

I'm going to be the first to say LTB...

Mynewmoniker Sun 06-Jan-13 20:56:52

I liiked the bride's style in the 'having words'.

qazxc Sun 06-Jan-13 20:57:28

why is she only blaming dave?

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 20:58:23

Well that was another hour of wierdness.

hurricanewyn Sun 06-Jan-13 20:58:37

I feel sorry for Dave grin

Mynewmoniker Sun 06-Jan-13 20:58:40

See you all next week grin

See you then smile

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 21:01:34

DH has Sky plussed it I may have to watch it with him to see what he thinks. grin

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 06-Jan-13 21:01:49

Who would actually book to go there after seeing the programme? smile

Seriously, never mind "who lives in a house like this" but "who goes on holiday here"

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 21:03:25

I think it's been sold and is now under new ownership.

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Jan-13 21:04:37

Where are you all????

Are you eating sausages with the posh people?

hurricanewyn Sun 13-Jan-13 20:17:55

I was just looking for this thread. Definitely eating the cheap sausages here grin I don't care how far it's travelled.

arf!

hurricanewyn Sun 13-Jan-13 20:22:01

I love how the guardian is some kind of poshness indicator. I read it & I'm common as muck.

Sparklingbrook Sun 13-Jan-13 20:22:03

Hahaha Let me be on the posh sausage side. grin

These two look a bit vacuous.

hurricanewyn Sun 13-Jan-13 20:23:48

I can't believe she called him back to tell him she burped.

sausagegate....

They seem ideally suited to me...

Another Groom to be to be proud of there as well...

cantheyseeme Sun 13-Jan-13 20:25:26

I lvoe this show so much, I would love to work there! It reminds me of another thing channel 4 did calle deducating essex which was AMAZING also smile

Sparklingbrook Sun 13-Jan-13 20:26:44

I love the comedy music. grin

hurricanewyn Sun 13-Jan-13 20:34:53

Asking the guests to mind the dog shock

Sparklingbrook Sun 13-Jan-13 20:36:43

Bridal Suite with bunk beds. grin

Mynewmoniker Sun 13-Jan-13 20:39:25

Mr & Mrs Tickle must have been flattered to be asked to eat the 'posher' sausage grin

hurricanewyn Sun 13-Jan-13 20:41:09

Oh lord, she's dull

Mynewmoniker Sun 13-Jan-13 20:41:12

PURLEEEEEEEEEs don't show the couple sha**ing shock

hurricanewyn Sun 13-Jan-13 20:43:58

Ooh it's sausage morning grin

Mynewmoniker Sun 13-Jan-13 20:44:52

They've played hide the sausage!

Sparklingbrook Sun 13-Jan-13 20:44:54

Or not hurricane. grin Has the dog ate them?

Mynewmoniker Sun 13-Jan-13 20:49:34

If they're still frozen they could sell them as Heston's pork flavoured iced lollypops grin

hurricanewyn Sun 13-Jan-13 20:51:04

grin arf

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 13-Jan-13 20:55:35

Sausage Apartheid grin

VivaLeBeaver Sun 13-Jan-13 20:55:40

Can't believe the manager thinks its a good idea to segregate the posh breakfast people from the normal breakfast people.

Ant think he even thinks its a good idea to give people the hard sell at breakfast time.

D you want a decent sausage or a crap sausage?

Sparklingbrook Sun 13-Jan-13 20:58:39

The whole thing is just shock isn't it?

Mynewmoniker Sun 13-Jan-13 20:58:41

See you next week <wave> smile

hurricanewyn Sun 13-Jan-13 20:59:11

Another hour of oddness.

See you next week ladies!

curlyclaz13 Sun 13-Jan-13 21:23:01

£4 extra for a posh sausage ? you can buy a whole pack for that shock I do fancy a sausage sandwich now though grin

Mynewmoniker Sun 13-Jan-13 22:30:16

Are you of the right class to have a decent one or will you be having a chippollatta? grin

inchoccyheaven Tue 22-Jan-13 12:42:19

Can we start on the stripper episode yet? How on earth does Christian think he is good at his job? £5 for a ticket which includes buffet, disco and strippers and make money confused

They are all so incompetant but just can't see it.

Sparklingbrook Tue 22-Jan-13 12:45:20

I watched the stripper episode but lost this thread. sad I was shock the whole way through. That gobby receptionist with the ill fitting jacket shouldn't speak to her boss like that either. Cheeky mare-she treats him like dirt.

And <arf> at Christian having two topless men in his office when the inspectory bloke knocked. hmm

Orenishii Tue 22-Jan-13 14:56:38

The clip in the opening credits where Mark says "the global credit recession wasn't my fault" always make me laugh - he just says it so matter of factly and so slightly defensively but it's quite a surreal comment to make grin

inchoccyheaven Tue 22-Jan-13 17:42:47

On a side note I can't believe that woman fancied Mark, and her family jumped about on the bed!

Sharpkat Tue 22-Jan-13 17:47:00

This is hilarious. 60 minute makeover. Strippers and topless butlers. Am gutted it has changed hands - I would so love to go.

Sparklingbrook Tue 22-Jan-13 18:13:03

YY Sharp we could have had an MN minibreak at the Grosvenor (silent S) Would we have got the premium sausage though?

Sharpkat Tue 22-Jan-13 21:56:12

Oh definitely premium sausage. I am still laughing at the whole thing.

KenDoddsDadsDog Wed 23-Jan-13 13:01:46

I loved the fact that her daughter said "they have the same hair". It was so sweet.

Sparklingbrook Sun 27-Jan-13 09:35:19

Mark and the Receptionist are on Sunday Brunch this morning C4 now. He is bonkers-hope he does some cooking.

Sparklingbrook Sun 27-Jan-13 09:36:34

He's like Karl Pilkington in a way.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 27-Jan-13 20:05:00

Anyone watching tonight ?

Sparklingbrook Sun 27-Jan-13 20:14:50

Sky plussing due to Top Gear Ken am I missing a treat?

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 27-Jan-13 20:19:29

Yes, it's hysterical

Sparklingbrook Sun 27-Jan-13 20:21:04

I heard something about an Indian night? That won't end well........

DdJames Sun 27-Jan-13 20:41:35

I don't think I can watch! Its going to be really bad isn't it.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 27-Jan-13 20:52:47

I feel a bit sick

Footface Sun 27-Jan-13 20:54:36

I love it, sometimes I think it can't be real because its just so wrong. But it is.

Why does he have so many staff, and so many that need the sack

BambieO Sun 27-Jan-13 21:03:16

Hysterical is an understatement! How on earth does he get away with the things he does! It's compulsive car crash viewing at its very best he has me in stitches

ledkr Sun 27-Jan-13 21:05:47

I just watched this. Laughed until I cried. Mortifying. The cringeworthy Indian national anthem, Ali baba playing that old Indian classic rocking all over the world by the quo. Priceless.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 27-Jan-13 21:20:29

"we've got a sitch"

bigTillyMint Sun 27-Jan-13 21:45:35

Loved this episode - it's my favourite programme! It's so unbelieveably bad that I sort of want to go and stay there to experience it!

Sparkling, did Mark do/say anything interesting on that proagramme this morning - I saw a bit in the gym, but then DD wouldn't let me switch over to watch some more when I came in!

curlyclaz13 Sun 27-Jan-13 21:58:38

oh my god. getting in the guests car ? blacking up ? you think it can not possibly get any worse then it does.

Sparklingbrook Mon 28-Jan-13 07:08:08

It was quite funny Tilly but he comes across as bonkers he really does. It's worth a look if you can find it on 4OD (is that the one). grin

Can't wait to watch last night's.

bigTillyMint Mon 28-Jan-13 07:11:54

I agree, he is bonkers, but he's good TV!

Sparklingbrook Mon 28-Jan-13 07:12:55

They were trying to get him to try some doughnuts. I had to go out so don't know whether they got him to do any cooking.

bigTillyMint Mon 28-Jan-13 08:02:01

Oh yes, that's the bit I saw. He doesn't like to try new stuff, does he?!

Sparklingbrook Mon 28-Jan-13 09:32:03

Oh and they did a sausage test and he picked the value sausage as the best. grin The receptionist was feeding them to him. Bleurgh.

bigTillyMint Mon 28-Jan-13 18:02:49

Didn't see that!grin

florry88 Mon 28-Jan-13 20:35:32

I love it, so funny

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 03-Feb-13 20:04:37

Who is watching with me ?

Sparklingbrook Sun 03-Feb-13 20:07:03

Might be in a sec. Top Gear's on down here-may decamp to the bedroom.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 03-Feb-13 20:56:06

sad

Sparklingbrook Sun 03-Feb-13 21:15:13

Watching on Plus One. 'Guests who aren't suitable shouldn't be allowed to come' grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 03-Feb-13 21:41:45

Um why is Christian in a wedding dress?

curlyclaz13 Sun 03-Feb-13 21:42:43

OH used to work with the bloke in the couple tonight ! free wedding is going to be a nightmare for the hotel isn't it !

He owes the council 55 grand? He's sunk.

Thank god Christians gone, he's a liability!! We love love love this programme because its so bad, it's good, but for the first time tonight, I actually watched from behind a cushion, it's was cringy. Next weeks might be a bit sad :-(

MrsReiver Sun 03-Feb-13 22:52:05

How awkward must it have been for that couple who got married to watch this evening and see the way Mark was talking about their wedding? Cringe!!!

KenDoddsDadsDog Mon 04-Feb-13 07:40:14

I know, £2 a duck leg !

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 10-Feb-13 20:12:49

Who is watching the grand finale ?

Sparklingbrook Sun 10-Feb-13 20:13:42

Me! <runs upstairs and abandons Top Gear>

Sparklingbrook Sun 10-Feb-13 20:15:12

Right, What have I missed? Is that his Mother?

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 10-Feb-13 20:21:49

Yes that was his mother ! She's very funny

Sparklingbrook Sun 10-Feb-13 20:22:41

Is the son called Lane? It's really sweet they take the children but they don't think much of it themselves. grin

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 10-Feb-13 20:28:45

Yes Lane, a lovely sweet lad.

Sparklingbrook Sun 10-Feb-13 20:31:38

OMG. What on earth where they thinking? Rowing. grin This has to be for the telly.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 10-Feb-13 20:32:10

Mark in the back of the boat like a gnome grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 10-Feb-13 20:32:13

'I can do more with me mouth than I can do with me hands' <arf>

Sparklingbrook Sun 10-Feb-13 20:32:49

Awww is that for Lane??

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 10-Feb-13 20:32:53

Ah the Hoover, how sweet

Sparklingbrook Sun 10-Feb-13 20:34:02

sad

Sparklingbrook Sun 10-Feb-13 20:34:34

You see this is when Alex Polizzi should arrive and sort it all out.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 10-Feb-13 20:38:19

Please someone give Mark a job

Sparklingbrook Sun 10-Feb-13 20:41:37

He is a little bit eccentric but he might be good at something Ken.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 10-Feb-13 20:47:14

sad he should be still there just talking to guests. He's brilliant at that.

Sparklingbrook Sun 10-Feb-13 20:47:15

sad Are their jobs safe though? confused

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 10-Feb-13 21:00:04

Oooh I thought it was the last one. Brill.

Sparklingbrook Sun 10-Feb-13 21:02:41

Me too. I am glad we get to see what happens. smile

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 18:37:09

It's the last one tonight. Who's in?

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 18:40:57

Me smile

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 18:42:24

I just watched the episode from last week, I was amazed at that couple from Leeds who had not had a holiday before and the woman had never been to the south of England. Totally different life from most of us I expect. I couldn't help feeling sorry for them at their choice of hotel!

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 18:45:30

It's such a shame. It looks ok from the outside but Mark is a crap manager. I am still disappointed Alex Polizzi didn't appear. grin

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 18:48:07

Yes, she really needs to get her act together and help them out. Mark should take part in C4's four in a bed - that would be essential viewing smile

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 18:52:32

And the way that the Receptionist who doesn't own one jacket that fits speaks to him is disgusting.

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 18:53:51

He really needs to be more assertive in a positive way...and she needs taking down several pegs.

MsNobodyAgain Sun 17-Feb-13 19:22:12

I watch it with DD but tell her to ignore the swearing. blush

Mark looks a bit ill to me. Lost a lot of weight.

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 19:47:36

I thought that as well, hopefully it is stress and nothing worse.

thekidsrule Sun 17-Feb-13 20:05:15

i think mark is a legend,funny and dosent realise it

such a shame its ending

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:06:42

I think there will be another series next year but that will be the final one.

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:09:29

That little lad, he's so cute - nice to see a child saying wow at the room when some would turn their noses up at it.

thekidsrule Sun 17-Feb-13 20:10:18

oh go away christian,he's to much the drama queen for me

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 20:10:38

it was a particuarly non-wow room. At that age my two thought the tea tray thing was soo exciting. grin

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:11:56

smile How camp is Christian.....

SoleSource Sun 17-Feb-13 20:14:59

I want Mark

MsNobodyAgain Sun 17-Feb-13 20:17:07

Christian was a liability. Well rid.

SoleSource Sun 17-Feb-13 20:17:24

Camper than a camper van parksd on a camp site full of campers.

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:18:44

Mark is on Twitter and says there will be an announcement on there at 9pm.

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:20:24

Ken's wife reminds me of a certain muppets character.....sorry!

SoleSource Sun 17-Feb-13 20:21:16

On Twitter Dizzy?

SoleSource Sun 17-Feb-13 20:22:07

I like Mark's Mom

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:22:09

I think so.
follow @thehotel_Mark
or look at #thehotel

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 17-Feb-13 20:22:40

Poor Mark

SoleSource Sun 17-Feb-13 20:23:04

Hotel always seems full...

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 17-Feb-13 20:24:03

He's funny on twitter, can't wait for 9pm

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:24:23

Do they only have one room? I have seen 3 families have that room now - or are they all identical?!

SoleSource Sun 17-Feb-13 20:24:27

That couple cannot be from B'ham.

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 20:24:29

Full of Brummies Sole. wink

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:25:12

Mark on twitter "Almost time. Kettle on / Wine open.. Ch4 #TheHotel for the last time.. Don't forget to come back for a special announcement here at 9pm"

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:26:01

Well if we believe the BBC it is horrible in Birmingham (I am sitting on the fence) so maybe the hotel is better! grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 20:26:19

Bingo?

SoleSource Sun 17-Feb-13 20:26:24

Mark's Son works there!

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:26:55

Christian forgot his wig......

SoleSource Sun 17-Feb-13 20:27:18

Bingo kill me now!

ohforfoxsake Sun 17-Feb-13 20:28:01

Dizzy - would you report back please?! Wonder what it is??

thekidsrule Sun 17-Feb-13 20:28:03

sole i thought that

i think some of the problem is there is no costings on things/no budget maintained

and with a place like that if you dont will swallow money

where i used to work they had to make the money in the summer to carry them over the winter months,Torquay is very seasonal as well,where else big resorts can offer conferences etc in the leaner months

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 20:28:16

Cringe

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 17-Feb-13 20:28:50

Who is the boy he always has in his room?

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 20:29:07

I quite likes Torquay. It's ok for a town by the sea. Living Coasts is great.

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:29:36

ohforfox, yes I will. The people at the bingo seem to feel the same as you sole

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:30:41

from twitter: "That bingo needs a make over. Perhaps a semi blind drag queen with no make up skills or dress sense would help"

SoleSource Sun 17-Feb-13 20:30:44

Yeah, forgot that bit thekids.

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 20:31:05

The Receptionist sounds like Dawn French.

SoleSource Sun 17-Feb-13 20:31:43

Ooh yesDizzy please report back. I bet you forget! sad

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:33:23

LOL...how much?!

SoleSource Sun 17-Feb-13 20:33:34

Alison likes to talk to Mark as if he is trash. That is whats he will miss the most about him. Maybe she is worried her new boss will have a hotter mouth thanher!

SoleSource Sun 17-Feb-13 20:33:59

1p

smile

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 20:34:33

She might be worrying she will have to do as she's told with a new boss and show him some respect.

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:34:46

harumph biscuit grin

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:35:15

Sparkling, she will never manage that!

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 17-Feb-13 20:36:03

How can Alison be manager?

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:36:04

Are that couple with the scrambled faces embarrassed to be seen there or are they on the run?!

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:36:48

hair curlers at breakfast...god my judgy pants are working overtime tonight....never knew I had such an inner b*tch

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 20:36:59

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:38:02

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:41:05

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 20:42:23

SoleSource Sun 17-Feb-13 20:43:05

thekidsrule Sun 17-Feb-13 20:52:16

thekidsrule Sun 17-Feb-13 20:53:07

i do think he has a bit of a cult following

Footface Sun 17-Feb-13 20:53:08

What was wrong with the man with the little boy?

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:54:34

he had a couple of heart attacks.

thekidsrule Sun 17-Feb-13 20:55:17

oh its sad

Footface Sun 17-Feb-13 20:55:42

Thanks, poor mark looks very grey

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 20:55:52

Aww Mums never stop worrying do they?

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 20:56:35

I wonder why he is going to London to stay with his daughter and not locally with his Mum.

Lafaminute Sun 17-Feb-13 20:57:55

Alison could double as Nanny Plum!!! (maybe she does and they're all Nickolodean productions!!!)

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 20:57:57

Cringe. Again!

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 20:58:28

SoleSource Sun 17-Feb-13 20:59:07

Ooh Mark marry me!

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 20:59:16

thekidsrule Sun 17-Feb-13 20:59:49

sole great idea about the link

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 21:00:09

Poor Mark....he worked so hard to keep it going, and the way he sang at the end, that must have been so hard for him.

SoleSource Sun 17-Feb-13 21:00:46

Gosh lots of West Midlanders!

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 21:00:49

Sole, I can't see him on Mumsnet somehow

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 21:01:26

No announcement on twitter at the moment

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 17-Feb-13 21:01:48

SoleSource Sun 17-Feb-13 21:01:53

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 21:03:30

Yay. It's not the end!

hmmmm looks like a 'look how many hits I've got Channel , you need to give me a job' type of thing there.

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Feb-13 21:04:57

I would like to see him on Idiot Abroad with Karl Pilkington or in the jungle. Strictly and DOI not so much. grin

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 17-Feb-13 21:05:46

I hope he earns some money !

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 21:06:02

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 21:08:56

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 17-Feb-13 21:09:32
SoleSource Sun 17-Feb-13 21:18:02

I feel really terrible for Mark. He is broke.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 17-Feb-13 21:18:53

This is series two though that just finished

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 17-Feb-13 21:20:09

He will be at the hotel when the series is on TV - so we won't see him host , he will just be at the hotel
