Very nice, TalcAndTurnips grin - love the production notes touch.

Can I add a serious one? They should serialise a Georgette Heyer; The Foundling would work well, or Regency Buck.

Dammit Talc , anything I write now will be shite by comparison.

Anyway, I propose <ahem> ....

They're not fecking celebs, get them out of here - a crack team of men in , um, black suits and gas masks....stick with me.... will gather up the worst offenders of being famous for absolutely fuck all and they will be deported to a faraway island where even the Daily Fail's Side of Shame cannot reach. Once there, they are left to fend for themselves with no fake tan, hair straighteners, fake eyelashes or tooth whitenening kits. A rescue team will be dispatched in 60years. The end.

I propose that for Series One, we have:

Imogen Thomas
Lauren Goodger from TOWIE
That bloody stupid Rosie Webster girl from Corrie
Kirk Norcross - also TOWIE
Jodie Marsh

I'm a cabinet minister get me out of here....clearly we are all really complaining about Nadine Dories largely because it is her and not George Osborne or Gove. Can we volunteer them both for some sick jungle challenge as part of Children In Need?
