Gillian McKeith faints but nobody cares…shock!

AS we hurtle towards the festive season I accept that there is to be a little bit of panto action, (oh no there isn’t…oh YES there is!) however, I think Gillian McKeith has started a little too soon. I cannot actually believe that her fellow jungle dwellers have not yet killed her and eaten her (although as former jungle ‘queen’ Christopher Biggins pointed out on breakfast telly this morning, she would probably be a bit stringy-even with the addition of contraband salt that she smuggled in to camp.)
What a pathetic example of woman hood she truly is, what a FRAUD! You can bet your bottom dollar that at school she would have been the one feigning period pains to get out of cross country.
I have never actually liked her, understood her or been remotely interested in her and I think the same can be said for most of the viewers of I am a Celeb, but what does she think she is doing to her profile? If I was unfortunate enough to be her agent I would be running away very, very fast and not answering any phone calls…oh and resigning.
Apart from the fact that she looks about 103, she is just a bloody misery and so selfish. I know it’s been said already but what did she think she was going in there for in the first place? There is no spa, room service or haute cuisine….that’s the POINT!
Anyway if she pulls one more stupid fainting stunt like that again I think the public will probably want her head on a plate. Any girl who has ever genuinely fainted will agree that unlike in the movies, you don’t collapse elegantly and fall ballerina like to the floor with barely a sound. What actually happens is you keel over, usually on a crowded underground platform and hit the ground so hard that you risk a head injury. Then you come round to find your bag has been nicked and people have just stepped round you, assuming you are a drug addict. Fainting is NOT glamorous.
I have to agree with Stephen Fry’s Tweet about her age-he made a great point that she is the same age as Nigella so if you are truly what you eat I am up for something sticky, juicy and moist quite frankly (but then I always am!)
Now….meanwhile on the other side we have the sad, tragic life of Sarah Beeny and her ‘restoration nightmare.’ The poor, poor dear has gone and done such a silly thing…she’s only gone and bought a stately home. I know…tragic isn’t it. Is the whole country heaving with sympathy for her as we discover dry rot, wet rot, leaky roofs, mould….? Are we all secretly weeping inside as she stares glibly into the middle distance and realises that she just can’t afford £35,000 for a new roof? NO! WE don’t actually CARE!
Now, I like a nice property programme as much as the next 42-year-old mother of two, however I have NO sympathy with Ms Beeny at all. She is after all a property ‘expert’ and therefore I am pretty sure she knew what she was getting into in the first place. The country pile (almost literally a pile of damp, mould and general s**t in some places) that she has bought cost a little under half a million pounds. Call me a quaint old traditionalist but even I know that it probably needed more than just ‘a bit of work’…
And there she is in the ‘sports hall’ (every home should have one…what you mean you DON’T have your OWN sports hall…?) with her 23 children and Silver Cross pram….it’s ridiculous telly but I feel an addiction coming on……

  1. I love it – when are you getting your own reality tv show? it would be far more entertaining than either of the above!
