I’m a Brit proud!

Midweek Sport - - TELEVISION X -

I AM so proud to be Bri­tish af­ter Team GB’s mag­nif­i­cent medals haul at the Olympics!

It is such an in­cred­i­ble achieve­ment – es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing how small a na­tion we are com­pared to the likes of the USA, who topped the ta­ble, and China who were third be­hind us.

I have never re­ally been that into the Olympics, but I found my­self watch­ing quite a bit of the cov­er­age this time around. I HAD Sam Fox as my win­ner of

but now I think Stephen Bear might swoop in and win the show.

He has been play­ing such a good game and has done a good job wind­ing every­one up – and it’s work­ing!

Every­one hated him at the start, but he has sur­vived ev­ery pub­lic evic­tion so far and the rest of the house­mates are even warm­ing to him, so the boy is do­ing some­thing right.

I just think he makes bloody great TV and I reckon he has to be the craziest house­mate

have ever had – even worse than Perez Hil­ton from last year!

I think he would be a great ad­di­tion to

as well. I can just imag­ine him do­ing all of the daft sketches and get­ting the celebrity guests riled up.

Mark my words, Bear will be in the fi­nal! work as a pun­dit when it’s over.

These ath­letes ded­i­cate their whole lives to their sport, and for what? Just to com­pete ev­ery four years and to take home a medal?

I know I must sound like a right Deb­bie downer, and I don’t mean to take away from what they’ve achieved in Rio, but it’s just some­thing I’ve never re­ally seen the ap­peal of.
