Mr Gay UK 2005, LivingTV

What were the 10 worst things?

1 Mr Hull didn’t even make the final 10 and he was our favourite. There was some consolation that the winner was our second favourite, stereotype-busting plasterer Mark from Walsall.

2 It was probably the shoddiest show we’ve seen all year, with chaotic shot selection, lousy camera angles and production qualities we haven’t seen since being forced to watch our cousin’s wedding video

3 Brian Dowling failed to even look into the camera as he delivered a lame “script” with all the aplomb of Mark Durden-Smith

4 The celebrities on offer in the Champaign Lounge were very low rent: Jenny Frost, some Liberty X girls, Dan and Marco from Big Brother. The only one we liked was Richard Wilson who had the honour of presenting Mark with his prize.

5 Nadia’s interviewing technique made Kate Thornton seem half decent. eg to Jenny Frost: “You’re looking fabulous with your hair there.”

6 Brian’s comment “How sexy does she look?” about Nadia. She looked as if she was dressed in used dishcloths. Brian’s brainlessness. eg “I hear you jumped out of a plane from 30,000 feet.”

7 Nadia performed her new single.

8 The announcer before the show promised bad language and nudity. We got neither. And we’d have liked some, especially the nudity.

9 The guys wore too much product in their hair and some looked ridiculous in their “fantasy outfits” especially the trolley dolly from Stoke who dressed as an African tribesman

10 Julian from Queer Eye UK’s egotistical attempts to hog the limelight as if he was a spoilt child
