The winners did a 1980s-themed workout with space hoppers and hula-hoops.
“I don’t keep up with these things,” barked Sugar. “Is that back in at the moment?”

“Do you want to talk about the package?” asked a stern-looking woman from the gym chain Fitness First.
Oh give him a break, love. He is a “refrigeration entrepreneur” by trade – he was probably just a bit cold. BBC3 lesbian drama

“You’ve got a fire inside you,” said Cowell. I don’t know about that but she certainly looks like she might leave you with a burning sensation.
