Almost like a favourite film, if it's on I have to watch. It's a celebrity one.

A Killers song on the radio just made me think of it.

If you can guess which one it is, I wonder if you share my sad existence enthusiasm?

No one? Oh.

<looks around sadly >

Wow, just come back to this and loving all the fave episode comments, bringing it all back.

DH asked me to put on here about the one where a scottish guy called 'Bob Caulder' keeps randomly saying his own name and is then seemingly a bit too enamoured with a drag queen called 'Cherry Bakewell' (he's staright and married --and middle aged--)

PS I also LOVE Homes under the Hammer, Escape to the Country and Relocation - what I life I lead!

Ruffles - that Margi Clarke one... It was Jasmine Lennard (skinny no-mark who one allegedly shagged Simon Cowell) who was chucked off. She had a row with Marcus Collins, then Benidorm lady stuck up for him. Then JAsmine threatened to glass Benidorm lady.

no way shock she is a loon though she was on celeb big brother a complete loose cannon. I have seen the episode they just said they pulled out who knew CDWM could be so violent

Yes it was.

I remember the bloke who kept his cornflakes in the bathroom.

Was the snake one the episode where the snake pooed on the table?

moondog Sun 21-Apr-13 22:25:54

Yes, she was well weird.

Wannabestepfordwife Sun 21-Apr-13 21:34:38

geek I had forgotten her I think she was called farunda her clothes looked like she bought them from a specialist catalogue

cocolepew Sun 21-Apr-13 21:33:30

Hmm I can't really remember Geek. He was married with a young baby and was a knob <helpful>.
Then there was the Italian hairdresser with the photo of his wife in handcuffs and her arse on show.

Wannabestepfordwife Sun 21-Apr-13 21:33:03

hazel I thought she was fascinating still don't understand why she decided to cook so many dishes. The Italian estate agent on the same one made mine skin crawl he was so slimey

GeekLove Sun 21-Apr-13 21:24:41

coco
Was it the one with the block who kept taking the piss out of everyone and who kept his cereal in the bathroom?
I got the feeling he never cooked but felt it had to be easy as it was a women's job.

GeekLove Sun 21-Apr-13 21:22:07

I remember the snake episode. Especially when the misoginist said with pride that he had never read a book. I also remember the older women who kept going on about how beautiful she was although it was hard to tell as he default expression was of a bulldog chewing wasps.

HazeltheMcWitch Sun 21-Apr-13 21:18:22

Ooh, I liked strange thing lady. She was an anthropologist or similar, wasn't she? I could have nosed around her house forever.

I remember watching one with Nadia from big brother. Every time she opened her door to guests I kept thinking that the street looked familiar. I then realised they were filming in my DDs road and could see her front door and car. It was not Nadias house it was one of the film
crews house.

Wannabestepfordwife Sun 21-Apr-13 20:45:59

walking chyna was hilarious was even more amusing when the man on the next night had a tee total night.

I remember the strange thing as well

WalkingEasterEgg Sun 21-Apr-13 20:42:23

My absolute favourite is the one with drunk Chyna but for anyone else remember a woman making a pie with a face on it called "strange thing"? That is my close second (I'm a loser) xx

moondog Sun 21-Apr-13 20:14:28

Fantastic.
Thanks Hazel!
Oh have just remembered that other goody.
That weird humourless bloke with a goatee and all those stinking animals.
Then the women guests found a cat poo in the house and one started gagging.
He was foul.

AViewFromTheFridge Sun 21-Apr-13 20:12:21

The burping mayoress was from East Lancashire - the object of her desires calle himself Sunbed Jonny I think.

My favourite one is the snake one - it was such a great combination of people! Think it was from York, and as well as snakewoman there was an older lady who kept flaunting her body, a ridiculous chauvinist and a softly-spoken playwright - I love it. I bet the researchers have great fun matching these people up.

CoalDustWoman Sun 21-Apr-13 20:11:28

The camp bloke on the road kill episode is a rampant dogger, got found out my his wife and is now shacked up with his boyfriend.

None of these were a surprise to me when i found out, I have to say.

Gerrof Sun 21-Apr-13 20:06:25

Yes to Harry Hills wonderful commentary on YBF. I love it where he says people on the videos look like random slebs like Benny from Crossroads, Judy Finnegan etc.

Gerrof Sun 21-Apr-13 20:05:08

X posts, just been searching for that. Good old Mike from Birmingham.

Gerrof Sun 21-Apr-13 20:03:08

Haha that episode is o. 4OD, series 12 episode 20, Mike from Birmingham.

cocolepew Sun 21-Apr-13 19:59:45

I remember the one were there was a young guy on it who thought he was some sort of high flying millionaire. He was a pretenious (sp) knob. When they went to his flat the ladies took great delight in finding his bath was dirty. I think he was particularly horrible to one lady in particular.

HazeltheMcWitch Sun 21-Apr-13 19:52:58

clicky here for some cheesy pocketed joy

NB series 12, eps 17-20. Mike is 20.

Southeastdweller Sun 21-Apr-13 19:51:13

I liked the one in Liverpool where the vegan converted someone and the vegan lady cried when he told her he wasn't going to have dairy from then on because of what she told him.

The Christmas one in York is another favourite, I think because I loved Maria's menu and she reminded me much of myself us both being a little pretentious. I think I cried when she did when she found out she won. Her husband seemed nice - does anyone remember him knocking on the neighbours' doors asking for an egg?

I agree that the people are too knowing now. The earlier ones are so much better.

cornydash Sun 21-Apr-13 19:48:32

oh thanks hazel. That jasmine is awful - she was vile on celeb BB as well.
