Have never heard of him. Is he just Ewan McGregor's mate?

His programme on BBC2 atm is utter drivel (and he is visiting some fascinating places, should be very interesting really)

HAs sent DP to sleep

He's a bloke on holiday. With a camera crew following him.

Natch.

I couldn't tell you why though.

IIRC his dads a film director. So basically a rich 'kid' who can do what he wants and has connections in the right places.

preciouslillywhite Sun 01-Nov-09 21:37:57

Charley Boorman, for example, is a twat

ScaryMotherWhoScreeches Sun 01-Nov-09 21:38:58

So his dad's a film director, and his mate is Ewan.

But still, who is he?

bruxeur Sun 01-Nov-09 21:38:59

Utter dick. Made a bomb joke at check-in on one of his leeching trips with Ewan McG, and then threw a hissy fit when he got in trouble for it.

DP's watching this at the moment.

Does anyone else think that he always looks as if hes on something? -just the way his eyes are wild and popping out of his head.

(Charlie Boorman that is, not my DP wink)

here he is

he is actually from a very priveliged background, although he looks like a scruffy, unwashed type grin

he didn't get where he is on merit, that is for sure

although, I would do him grin

Awful cringey moments when faced with Manila's street children

To me it's like a Newsround bulletin or something

Something like they'd show Y4 children to try and introduce topic of Third World

southeastastra Sun 01-Nov-09 21:41:13

yeah connections in the right places. like peaches geldof, jamie winstone, lily allen to start

Olihan Sun 01-Nov-09 21:41:22

He has NO personality, NO empathy, No concept of what the people he is privileged enough to meet are going through and whichever TV exec who was conned by the 'Dadady the TV Man' and 'Ewan's my bessie mate' needs shooting.

notnowbernard Sun 01-Nov-09 21:45:40

Scene including him witnessing passer-by pissing in what is effectively street-child's bed (ie, pavement)

"God, that's like, awful" (or some such drivel)

Next scene him in a Bikers bar admiring the leather and metal and engines and shit

hmm

AnyFucker Sun 01-Nov-09 21:54:01

would no-one else do him ???

blush

in my defence, I am mid-cycle grin

I would do anybody

notnowbernard Sun 01-Nov-09 21:55:34

LOL Anyfucker grin

No I bloody wouldn't

JesusChristOtterStar Sun 01-Nov-09 21:56:23

a bore get him off tv

everynight it seems

AnyFucker Sun 01-Nov-09 21:56:50

oh dear

ScaryMotherWhoScreeches Sun 01-Nov-09 21:57:33

No, I wouldn't.

Even though he'd probably say Awesome a lot, regardless of my performance.

MavisEnderby Sun 01-Nov-09 21:58:14

Although I have found the places he has travelled to interesting I think as someone else sadi his engagement with the travels do resemble a "Y4 topic of the 3rd world"

I felt much more fondly of the Blue Peter presenter bloke who was on Around the world in 80 days last week.He seemed to be truly interested in the places and people he was travelling in.

AnyFucker Sun 01-Nov-09 21:59:18

ohhhh, he is being made up as a lady-boy

I don't want to do him now <boak>

MavisEnderby Sun 01-Nov-09 21:59:37

What?I mean people,and places he was travelling in.Oh god,time to tone down on the wine!

notnowbernard Sun 01-Nov-09 21:59:44

Brilliant

Amazing

Awesome

Incredible

Exciting

southeastastra Sun 01-Nov-09 22:00:57

i like danny dyer, that is embarassing

Hassled Sun 01-Nov-09 22:03:53

He wouldn't even eat a bloody turtle's testicle. I mean come on, that's just pathetic.

preciouslillywhite Sun 01-Nov-09 22:08:49

AnyFucker Sun 01-Nov-09 22:18:52
