The Leak...

Post by James Robinson » Sun Jan 07, 2018 4:14 pm

Just looking online and see this story that seems to be exploding all around...:

https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/5 ... itter/amp/
https://www.express.co.uk/showbiz/tv-ra ... Apply-Leak

Quite like the fact that they seem surprised by some of these rules. Clearly have nothing much better to do, do they... :?: :?: :?: :P :P :P
WE ARE PREMIER LEAGUE!!!
UP THE MIGHTY TERRIERS!!! ;) :) :D :mrgreen: 8-)

I hope nobody at the Express or Sun is reading this. What if they found out that thousands of past contestants, including us, received the same guidelines about wardrobe and game procedure when they went on the show and didn't give them to the press, on the paper-thin pretext that we didn't think it was newsworthy? We're all complicit in the biggest and most scandalous cover-up in TV history. They probably also know that our cover-up was joint-funded by the BBC, the EU and Jeremy Corbyn, so there's no point in us hiding that any more.

If they find out you're not allowed to pick fewer than three or more than five vowels, this could be bigger than the expenses scandal.

Pretending to clap though? You're just a bunch of fraudsters.

I like the bit where they've worked out the number of "please"s that minimises overall complaints.

Maybe a better story is to leak the success of Apterites on countdown over the last 10 years or more

The Daily Express article has a video of one of my numbers rounds on it. 'Rachel Riley snaps at Martin Lewis' lololololol

This somehow has only just now wound up on the Daily Mail Twitter feed.

Yeah, this. That says, they do seem to have changed since I was on.
