6.35 – Chris has had his hair cut and was out with Aled last night as part of his alcohol experiment. They recorded a video which they hope to put online later. We then talk about certain features from the past which didn’t last too long on this show, like sick or soup and wooden spoony. We’ve also got a virtual Adrian Chiles in the studio to make Christine feel more at home later

People don’t care about us grafting away on the coalface of entertainment. Also The Daily Star have written that Chris is stunned after nobody backed his ugly campaign. Apparently, we received 5000 texts yesterday on a range of topics
