Just that really, was surprised to see smoking on such a popular show. Not that I particularly object to smoking but it seemed a bit unnecessary, especially as its popular with so many kids. Aibu? Should I chill the hell out?!!!

I was surprised to see Max smoking on eastenders earlier.

What? You got a grip on your Christmas list?

I think you should give up watching celebrity and find something less boring to do instead.

mrskeithrichards Tue 13-Nov-12 22:03:09

Max is always smoking!

Is it Helen you're surprised at, or smoking in general on the show? Because Eric Bristow has been smoking in pretty much every shot he's been on the telly.

YANBU - just said exactly the same thing to DH.

Think I've never really noticed it before! (Obviously not very observant) think it was unfortunate that she was puffing away just as the camera cut to a close up of her! Point taken that I should not spend so much time on brain rot, but I love some trashy TV!

Gosh yeah - do you think maybe all those kids watching don't know cigarettes exist? I bet that's right - poor things have no idea. Or had, till now. Get onto whoever it is people complain to when things on telly shock them to their very core!

I've never really noticed max smoking, but I'm not really paying attention normally m

YABU - I just saw it and thought 'Wow, she's lucky to have been allowed them in The Jungle'.

It seems weird to talk of an addiction being 'unnecessary' - like the producers thought 'Ooo! I know what'll spice up the show - we'll ask one of the Celebrities to smoke a bit now and then.'

I was shocked how many of the Celebrities I actually knew on sight...

Well... TBH the sight of a fag in her mouth might keep some people from looking at her pendulous breasts... Token eyecandy anyone...?

LadyStark Tue 13-Nov-12 22:11:15

Popular with kids? Really?!

kittyandthegoldenfontanelles Tue 13-Nov-12 22:11:27

Helen who? No tv in our house. I'm guessing mirren, Guv. I bet she smokes.

This ^^ totally grin

Have you never seen Big Brother OP?

Most of the conversation and gossip goes on in the smoking area.

AnyaKnowIt Tue 13-Nov-12 22:12:11

Well after what she had just ate, I don't blame her for having a fag tbh

Smoking would be the least of my worries if my kids where watching that brain rot

FermezLaBouche Tue 13-Nov-12 22:14:21

Like it or not, smoking is a perfectly legal habit.
If you're worried about your children seeing it and being tempted to try, all you can do is educate them on the possible horrible consequences of it and hope they make the right choices. I'm one of four. My brother (26) and sister (16) smoke but my other brother and I do not. we drink like fishes instead

Rushyswife Tue 13-Nov-12 22:14:31

Woah Suburbophobe and badger i said I was a bit shocked not that it was causing me grief! It's pretty clear from the title of my post that its a particularly 'deep' aibu!

Bugger - I meant THAT!

Is it permitted to eat testicles in the workplace?

No it's not, Badgers

You have to consider nut allergies.
