Anyone remember 'the fucking Fulfords'? 10yrs ago was on ch4 docum show and how messy he was and how much he swore

Was funny to watch. Tonight we have 'life is toff' and focus's on his kids - wonder if also swear non stop

I can't wait! Francis Fulford just has a natural gift for 'telly'. Pity his wife has declined to be involved in this series - she was intriguing and had the most smashing comic timing.

Really looking forward to this. I didn't realise his wife wasn't going to be in it.. That's a shame. Quite liked her.

He just seemed like a nice scatty man till he opens his mouth

His wife was funny. Wonder why she isn't in it

They're fucking filthy! Typical aristos. I wonder how long it will be before the estate is run into rack and ruin and 'donated' to English Heritage/National Trust?

I loved the Fucking Fulfords, but this is actually a bit annoying because the kids are so irritating.

I wish the mother would be in it, she was really funny. I remember when she chucked their tv in the lake.

They do live like absolute pigs though!

I'm sure Kim & Aggie did a " How Clean is your house" there, years ago though. Obviously it wasn't that clean!

Dear God I hope they were playing up to the cameras!

Did you ever see a dimmer bunch? At one point he referred to his son's expensive education - I hope he got a discount.

The website is pretty professional, I have to admit. Francis blog is worth a read.

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 29-Oct-14 18:23:43

francis did remind me of tim nice but dim from harry enfield grin

not sure why an ambulance was called for maltida, while she was wasting their time i hope no one actually needed one sad

they never mention mum,wondering if they got divorced and she finally left him as he treated her like the hired help in the original fucking fulfords

I can't believe how many times they used the F word. Shameful.

My DS went to the same prep school, and was there at the same time as the two youngest boys. All the teachers have been watching this, and one of them did comment on fb 'The boys will play to the camera of course. They had a fair bit of practice on the school stage!'

Edmund was a bit of a sweetie IIRC. There was a boy who used to pick on DS in the changing rooms, and Edmund used to chip in in support of DS.

There is an interview in the Radio Times. Mrs Fulford is still on the scene but declined to appear in this new series

LadyRubyPenhaligon Fri 31-Oct-14 07:37:56

Think it's probably a knock on effect if this incident

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 31-Oct-14 17:28:48

thing is people appearing/starring on reality shows must reliese they dont always get shown in good light and producers make 'good tv' iyswim

was also sent a message from someone who has no posts saying look at mrs f's blog

so i goggled and apparently Matilda was told via a doctor to get an ambulance - then why not say that

Why do posh girls always study art history?

"Why do posh girls always study art history?"

Why do working class girls:

~ Do "meeja studiez"?

~ Work in MacdDonalds/Estate agents/pubs/factories?

~ Drink themselves senseless EVERY weekend?

~ Dress up like VERY poorly co-ordinated Ommpah Loompas?

You wanted stereotype, so you've got some back. Enjoy.
