Tinpot tossers ...this year’s Sugar lumps
BBC1 hair gel fest
kicked off again last night amid great fanfare that this is the 10th series.
Wow, double figures! That is more than the mental age of most of the contestants. pain in the arse while you try to enjoy a quiet pint.
In a crowded field, the stand-out loon is probably Sarah – who glories in the job title of “Former PA and hypnotherapist”. Well, I suppose “failed secretary turned snake oil saleswoman” is a bit of a mouthful.
And it was under Sarah’s leadership that the girls’ team named themselves “Decadence” – apparently unaware that it made them sound like a dildo shop. It was so bad that even Lord Sugar told them to change it.
Well, I say they were unaware but perhaps Sarah chose the titillating name on purpose. Certainly her only strategy for the first task was for the girls to dress like sluts.
“Lipstick, high heels, and short skirts!” she boomed. “If you haven’t brought any short STARS At Your Service sees low-rent celebrities spending a day with members of the public.
It is all for charity, which I guess is why Channel 4 thought they could get away with dishing up such tired, clichéd, patronising crap.
Charity begins at home – which is exactly where everyone involved in the making of this load of bobbins should have stayed.
The charity campaign in question was Stand Up To Cancer. Frankly, they could be standing up to cancer, Ebola, ISIS and global warming rolled into one – and it STILL would not have been worth sitting through. skirts, you’ll have to hitch it up!”
Obviously, this type of sexist and degrading treatment of intelligent businesswomen is utterly out-dated and wrong.
Erm, apart from the fact that it worked and Sarah’s sub-team sold way more than any other. Take that, feminism! On the boys’ side, the prize plum award is currently a tie between camp Canadian Stephen, whose goal is to build a home for mentally-impaired adults (presumably he is on this show to scout for patients) and Robert, whose greatest nightmare “is to hit 40 and be on a £50K salary and drive a four-year-old Toyota”.
Oh Robert, I’m sure neither of those things will happen.
You won’t be making anywhere near £50K. And most minicabs are way older than four years. ITV2 sitcom
is very funny AND it stars stunning Laura Aikman (
So called, I’m guessing, because she gives me a “lorra ache, man”. In my balls. Laura plays Natalie, a trainee manager in a Midlands job centre – where this week she tried to manipulate her staff by “doing a Di”, or flashing her big doe eyes, a la Princess Diana.
At which point, most blokes would do anything she asked.
As long as they thought she might let them have an accident in her “Parisian tunnel”.
OH LORD! Sugar and co are back
