Knick-knocks, Emma?

:-D :-D :-D


TessAkaBridgetTheFidget Report 5 Sep 2017 23:07

I "know" of nine of them. Might know some of the actors too, just not good at "real" names.

But am delighted that the Rev. Richard Coles is one of the contestants. He was on my list of desirables . Along with Louise Hazel, Charles Hanson, Mel Godvich?? and a couple of others.

Will be watching.

Does anyone remember Joe McFadden from Take The High Road? It was an afternoon soap set in Scotland. It centred around the local shop!

He was a little cutie then. A big cutie now!

:-D :-D :-D


Tabitha Report 6 Sep 2017 14:12

I loved take the high road - Joe McFadden is a Dr on Holby - wasn't he in Taggart too?

I only know 8 of them and one i will certainly not vote for as i think she is awful & a waste of air space

Hope Debbie McGee does better than she did on master Chef

I am not looking forward to the new Judge - dont think I am going to like her one little bit - may have to send her off with that other woman


'Emma' Report 6 Sep 2017 14:15

Gotcha Maddie ;-) :-D


BrendafromWales Report 6 Sep 2017 14:27

I only know 3. Still we will get to know them as the weeks go on.
Shows how much I watch TV,and what I do watch!


MotownGal Report 6 Sep 2017 22:17

Lovely Girls! I think the gang is all here again for the series to start. Any more for any more? Everyone is welcome to come and join us to give your opinions on the Glitter Fest. <3

Apparently there is to be a tribute to Bruce on the opening show. And rightly so. There will not be a dry eye in the house. <3

Roll on the first show, I cant wait!!

:-) <3

My Sophie Rayworth hasn't been selected :-( :-( :-( :-( ;-)



MotownGal Report 7 Sep 2017 18:25

I'll say this for you GP, you are a persistent one! Poor old Sophie has not a chance with an avid fan like you.

Have you thought of starting a petition?

;-) <3


GeordiePride Report 7 Sep 2017 18:36

I did start a petition MTG but the Warden and Prison officers wouldn't allow it. :-( :-( :-( ;-)



MotownGal Report 7 Sep 2017 18:46

Do they still censor letters then? I had no idea!

;-) ;-) ;-)

Maybe next year, GP
