What to say if you liked it

A TV talent show which doesn’t require us to suffer squeaky versions of Whitney Houston songs

What to say if you disliked it

They’re so vain, I bet they think this TV show is about them.

What was good about it?

• Presenter Lisa Butcher has a very nice voice. Which makes up for the fact that she looks like a cross between Tara Palmer-Tomkinson and Red Rum.

• The first bitchy remark came from Anne, who claims to be a Christian: “When I saw Shauna, I thought ‘I’m so glad my hips aren’t that big’.”

• The docile response of male passers-by as a parade in flesh-coloured swimsuits was held in London’s Leadenhall Market

• Sherilee’s sudden realisation. “I work in a bingo hall. It’s not really intellectual.”

What was bad about it?

• At least one of them’s a minger; one’s a future axe murderer; one’s so butch she should become a bouncer; one talks like a five-year-old; a couple claim to be clever but still mangle the language

• The Welsh one’s horrible 1980s hairstyle

• The screaming when anything “exciting” happened

• The overuse of the pronunciation “modawls”

• The prissy photographer in the leather cap and spotty jumper

• Reject Marina taking her elimination in good grace rather than unleashing bitchy remarks and starting a catfight
