What did you think of The One Show? Guest: Geri Haliwell

The One Show Team | 18:11 UK time, Thursday, 7 May 2009

Spice Up Your Life! Adrian and Christine were joined by singer and children's author, Geri Haliwell.

Paddy O'Connell met parents in Corby who believe their children were born with deformities due to the Council's negligence in clearing toxic waste.

Mariella Frostrup travelled to Cornwall to find out how much of Daphne du Maurier's work was inspired by her own life.

Miranda Krestovnikoff was in Plymouth investigating the importance of plankton in our oceans.

And One Show science man Michael Mosley investigated if sweating really does get rid of toxins.

    re 1: I agree, Christine & Adrian certainly make The One Show what it is.

    what would the one show do without london and more imprtantly (at the moment) the south coast of englamd ?
    are they sponsored by the london tourist board and the devon and cornwall holiday society ?

    Geri Halliwell is officially the most annoying guest Adrian and Christine have ever interviewed! So full of it and in your face. For the first time ever I was relieved when the show finished.

    Ilove the One Show and watch regularly, but something made me sit up in protest tonight! How dare Mariella Frostrup link Barbara Cartland and Georgette Heyer in the same sentance!

    Barbara Cartland wrote silly sentimental slush while Georgette Heyer was a brilliant writer - wonderful believable characters, good plots and historically correct down to the smallest detail - wonderfully engrossing and funny! The acid test, however many times you read them they are still just as fresh and enjoyable. Anyone agree with me?

    Good show as usual. Excellent, subtle teamwork by the co-hosts prevented the ageing Helliwell from dominating the show. Please don't have her back again. Frostrop could learn some manners too.

    Geri has a presence, no question. She held my attention! Glad to see her relaxing as the show wore on, although I thought the 'dwarf' remark was slightly insensitive (but then if you have read If Only, you will realise she 'puts her foot in it').

    Been a fan of the Spice Girls for more than a decade, and I would very much like to see other members participate in the One Show too.

    Really enjoy watching the show but i am dissapointed at yet again the one sided miss-information put across about current north sea cod stocks.
    These are now in a very healthy state and with me being a fisherman i have first hand evidence of this every week.
    So please dont be put off buying and eating this delicious fish as there are very few boats left to come anywhere near harming this now sustainable stock.

    re 11: Which small South American country did you have in mind?
    I always think Costa Rica is nice with its pleasant climate.

    Post 7, really agree with you, but perhaps I am being a little unfair as I have only ever managed one chapter of Barbara Cartland! G.Heyer is my favourite comfort read when I am stuck in bed.

    re 13 Costa Rica is good.But its more of a central American country then south.I would say Peru or maybe Paraguay.

    Re: post 4. Hokey, please SHUT UP! There is a limit you know to how much repetitive complaining up with which we can put! Enough. Don't like it, don't watch it but for goodness sake avoid being the parrot in the corner with a limited vocabulary. Sometimes I like what you say but other times.... We heard it all before.

    Thanks yet again for another brilliant,totally stupid,informative,irreverent programme.
    Christine,Geri and Mariella all giving Adrian a tough time.Geri especially.
    I wish the programme could be on an hour every day,but one can hope.
    Plankton,Daphne du Maurier and sweat.Some combination.
    Plus essence of Adrian.You soppy bugger.
    Thanks yet again to everyone concerned.
    Adrian and Christine.You certainly take some beating

    hello juniperjewel...thanks for your kind words.
    no i wont shut up.
    i believe it is a point to be made.
    i do enjoy the show,i watch regular and pay my license fee so as a registered member of this blog i will comment if i want.
    if you dont like it-dont blog.
    i think it is a fair point,i will stop making it when the show is really representative of the country.
    where do you live?
    sussex,london,the south east or a coastal south coast town.???..if you do i suppose it will get a bit repetative to read that it covers your interests more than mine(and the rest of the nation north of watford)
    enjoy the show,enjoy the blogs.

    I found Geri quite frustrating to watch as she repeatedly interrupted everyone on the set and didn't give them the chance to finish what they were saying. She clearly needs to realise she can't be centre of attention all of the time.
