Beeb make it hard to Love My Coun­try

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

AP­PRO­PRI­ATE sched­ule clash of the week?

Satur­day, 7pm. On BBC1, I Love My Coun­try. On Chan­nel 4, Mis­sion Im­pos­si­ble II.

Let’s be hon­est, feel­ing pa­tri­otic is a tall or­der when the na­tional broad­caster serves up this garbage.

One of the pan­elists was ex- Easten­der Mar­tine McCutcheon, who loves her coun­try loads – un­til it is time to pay the tax­man, when she de­clares her­self bank­rupt.

An­other was Ea­monn Holmes, de­scribed by host Gaby Lo­gan as “the don of day­time TV.”

I think she mis­read the au­tocue. Surely she meant the TON of day­time TV. SKY 1 spoof cop drama

is not only bloody funny but it also stars the god­dess Su­ranne Jones as a bi-sex­ual de­tec­tive. Need I say more? Ac­tu­ally yes, I do. This week her char­ac­ter made a ref­er­ence to hav­ing bum sex. Would that make her Sore-Anus Jones?
