I'd definitely file this one under guilty pleasures. Please watch it so we can bitch comment on it here. Jon's grasp of English had me howling yesterday.

It's the worst worst. sad

lipsynch Tue 09-Jun-15 18:55:55

I felt so dirty
I will watch it again tonight

I came on the other night to see if there was a thread. When there wasn't it confirmed how tragic it was. I watched it again. It's dire & I felt a bit grubby.
The glamour model is rough. I kept thinking I hope your dad isn't watching. God I feel old!

I haven't learnt all their names yet, but I think Jess is worse than the glamour model. She's so fickle and totally in love with herself.

SweetPeaPods Tue 09-Jun-15 22:13:51

I watched Sundays and Mondays episodes this afternoon. It's so bad it's good.

icelollycraving Tue 09-Jun-15 22:19:21

Which one is Jess?

cheapskatemum Tue 09-Jun-15 22:35:21

I think Jess is the raven haired, curvy one that one of the Italian twins chose to have a date with. That's who I think is in love with herself, anyway.

SweetPeaPods Tue 09-Jun-15 22:44:26

She definitely loves herself, very low standards. Clearly had too much to drink on her date with Italian guy.

Cherrypie32 Tue 09-Jun-15 22:46:56

Not even Towie standards of dross, didn't know there was lower. I have a very low standards of tv viewing but had to turn this over!

Brummiegirl15 Tue 09-Jun-15 23:29:22

Omg it's horrendous but I can't stop watching!!!

Christ I am old - where did "mugging me off" come from?

And those Italian twins are about as Italian as Barnsley Pizza Hut

SweetPeaPods Wed 10-Jun-15 09:03:43

Haha Barnsley Pizza Hut, love it!!

MitzyLeFrouf Wed 10-Jun-15 10:45:13

Oh it's the very grubbiest of TV. The opening episode was like something from the 70's!

Someone needs to tell the twins that they're actually quite plain looking men. Do they think by repeating 'twins' and 'Italian meatballs' they'll hypnotise us into thinking they're hot?

Cherrypie32 Wed 10-Jun-15 12:45:11

There was another phrase, was it 'pieing' they used??? Wtf is that all about?

MitzyLeFrouf Wed 10-Jun-15 12:47:31

Yes it was all 'e ain't pied me off, I pied 'im off'.

Oh da kidz these days........they don't have any cool slang.

TheLastPickleInTheJar Thu 11-Jun-15 10:19:57

It gets me how the twins think they're charmers. They're really not! Pretty ordinary looking, no particular personality showing through, cheesy and insincere. And yy to them being as Italian as Barnsley Pizza Hut!

I think Lauren should be able to not choose any of them. None of them have even tried to get to know her.

I need to stop watching. It's really shit.

BBQsAreSooooOverrated Thu 11-Jun-15 11:59:37

Ooh is this like the ex on the beach programme? not that I watched that
think I'll have a look on catch up (and watch in secret)

SpanishFly Thu 11-Jun-15 14:45:37

This is my guilty pleasure just now. It's interesting how the boys all came across as mysoginists on the first show. But actually the boys are more smitten than the girls now.
The Italian twins are hilarious. They're so deluded.

SpanishFly Thu 11-Jun-15 14:50:44

Can I say though, it's not nearly so grubby like Ex On the Beach. The ones on this show are a BIT more mature in the way they behave and are a BIT classier. EOTB was really sleazy and they all wanted to have sex on day 1.

Gobbolinothewitchscat Thu 11-Jun-15 15:03:55

Oh DH and I are riveted!

Normally we only watch black and white French films with subtitles, of course.......

Was just saying last night that we could really do with a glossary to understand some of it. DH is intendi g to ask some "young people" at work today to translate

It just makes me feel very old am only 37 and very glad I don't have to go on dates anymore

Although, I felt sad when then girl whom no one seems to fancy started crying. It nearly set me off but think it was just pregnancy hormones. I said to DH that I would be so sad if that was our DD but he sensibly pointed out that she is only 1 and hopefully unlikely to go on programmes like that grin

Bombaybunty Thu 11-Jun-15 15:29:23

It is possibly the most unpleasant programme I've seen in ages. I love it!!!!

The only one I like is the skinny blonde girl who fancies the tattooed muscle bound man.

squoosh Thu 11-Jun-15 15:35:52

The 'Italian' twins are ridiculous. I'd be fooled into thinking I was gorgeous too if my mirror image told me 'You're dead good looking you are. Dead Italian like'................every day for the past 20 years.

squoosh Thu 11-Jun-15 15:36:41

The tattooed man always looks as though he's about to topple over, his centre of gravity seems a bit off whack.

Oooh an old friend from school is going on tonight, I've not watched it yet.
