What did you think of The One Show? Guest: Patrick Kielty

Post categories:

The One Show Team | 12:18 UK time, Wednesday, 20 January 2010

Adrian and Christine were joined by Sport Relief presenter Patrick Kielty.

Christine announced that she's to water-ski across the English Channel for Sport Relief.

Matt Allwright met members of the Haitian community in the UK at a candelit vigil held at St Martin's in the Fields, London.

In Otley, Yorkshire, Marty Jopson attempted to recreate an 1850s invention to help him walk on water.

Lucy Siegle met a viewer who was paying a water company for surface water removal, even though he didn't need to. 

Adam Shaw visited Savile Row, a street famed for its male tailoring, to meet Kathryn Sargent, the first female to be appointed as a head cutter.

And Tom Melly, son of George Melly, took us to his father's house to talk about George's career as a singer, writer and surrealist.

    Funklumpard has heard that TOS attracted an audience 7 million. This beggars belief. But viewing figures are not directly proportional to the quality of the show. I appreciate that BBC Golf is a high quality programme though I never watch it. If you are merely seeking the largest possible audience then I suggest that the TOS producer considers televising an execution.

    I am keen to learn more of this water ski challenge.

    Apparently Christine Bleakley is going to attempt to water ski across the English Channel. It's for Comic relief and she intends to raise a million. Only a couple of months wages!

    If she does it then more power to her, but I imagine it would require tremendous upper arm and shoulder strength for that sort of distance and water conditions and find it hard to beieve she could succeed. It would not need a lot by the way of waves to get her thrown off - but who knows? I will certainly donate if she makes a good fist of it.

    re #2: flunklumpard,

    I agree with you that CB does not appear to have the fitness, training or strength to do it.

    If this is a genuine attempt and not some kind of silly stunt to promote TOS then Christine will have receive my admiration. I would donate.

    Why does comic relief need to give Beckham more publicity. He's only a footballer. Like the rest of the overpaid, overrated ball kickers they don't save lives. Well spotted "the footballer will look better on christine" . Already is!

    To whoever was asking about her birthday, Kielty said it was next week, so everyone is wrong. Why so coy about her birthdate? I'm beginning to have doubts.

    Re 20 and my post at the end of last night's blog - yes, if her birthday is next week then that's yet another date; I think she may have just been going along with Paddy's remark as next week will be close to her birthday (if it really is early Feb). As to why so coy - I agree, it's silly. After all, she was only giving an age slightly younger than the real one (if it is to be believed) so no big deal.

    Yes, think the 'phone number' may have been just another number below her name scribbbled on that piece of paper, but if it belongs to someone, it was clearly shown on screen.

    Maybe it is today, as the Mirror pointed out, but as the Mirror also stated, that it was keen to find out what'you know who' would get her for her birthday. She's probably trying to deflect the attention in case its too bling. Mind you, she must have know this false interest would ensue.

    With regard to the article by Marty Jopson and the "walking on water" device. I note that there was a possible significant differrence in Marty's design from the original. Maybe Marty could revisit the idea, but this time lower the foot placement so to lower the centre of gravity. I could be that he will be more successful next time.

    They could do a really interesting piece. Telling the story of how John Cadbury, a Quaker, started his business selling hot chocolate and how he looked after his workers by building them homes in a purpose built village . Then go on to cover how we are being bought out by overseas businesses and exporting jobs to third world countries.

    Don't let Kaye Adams present it or she will have us all believe that Cadbury was a card carrying Socialist.

    The Dominican Republic and Haiti are two countries which make up one island (Hispaniola). I find it very difficult to believe that the earthquake only affected half the island!
    Could it be that they were affected by the 'quake but are coping much better because they are equipped to do so? Whereas Haiti's suffering is down to their political history? And the BBC feel that it is not very 'PC' to discuss this particular subject?

    AC looks distracted because he is too busy listening to the producer, speaking in his ear, about the segment coming up to fully interact or truly seem interested in their guest. This affects AC's interaction making him appear distracted. CB is more relaxed and she interacts with their guest in the time permitted.
    Neither of them are capable of being impromtu because the show is too scripted. I wonder if AC is even capable of being impromptu or speaking without autocue. His performance is very 'wooden' most of the time. I am also waiting for him to fall of the end of the sofa.
    We continually suffer AC's leaning forward peering at the autocue then relaxing back when he has finished his blurb. I have noticed recently that CB is starting this infuriating habbit. Perhaps if she lost the long 'girlie' fringe she might see better. If AC put his glasses back on it would perhaps help.
    Never mind Adrian the World Cup will soon be here and you can shuffle off and bore another audience.

    My view about cold calling apart from the pressure particularly on older people is that Energy Companies often think that paying less is always a good thing (if indeed that really is the result of signing up with a different provider).

    My view is that cost is just one factor another is good customer services, not having to change banking arrangements and direct debits, etc. I don't have time to fuss about changing providers even if it is .025 of a penny per watt.
