Sean's Stories

Wow. It’s not like the Express to create a harrowing news story from nothing.

To save you the time in searching for and reading this article – something I like to believe is beneath followers of my blog* – I’ll let you know the source of the headline… Twitter.

I only checked the Express website in order to carry out research for my own.

A journalist was paid (presumably) good money, to write about a few tweets from viewers, claiming how graphic and violent the ITV drama was.

Oh, and yes, I do see the irony of me writing about something somebody wrote about something somebody else wrote.

This is a TV series based upon the real life story of a man who slaughtered his entire family. What were these tweeters expecting? Last of the Summer Wine?

Giving the subject matter, I would be concerned if anyone found Wednesday night’s episode amusing. If some viewers were left disturbed, surely that means the cast and crew behind the series did a good job!

If it’s good old fashioned, wholesome primetime television they’re after, I would reccomend Netflix. I’m sure they can watch The Waltons or some other warm and cosy treat, making them truly believe that bad things don’t happen and we live in a fluffy world.

Ray from The Undateables, receives a special Leeds United gift.

Like Leeds fans worldwide, I’m not at all envious…

Of course, I did get out of the hospital bay and am now home.

Claire and I are working our way through all the episodes of I’m a Celebrity, which we missed. There are loads, but are making excellent progress and will have probably caught up by tonight’s installment.

One thing I have noticed, while watching our marathon, is that the celebrities’ primary complaints seem to revolve around the poor quality of sleep and food.

Poor souls! Sleep deprivation and an undesirable diet. It’s almost as if they are spending a spell in hospital… apart from the fact they’re not in pain and are being paid five and six-figure fees for the privilege.

Stop your moaning, celebs, and man/woman up!

So, the lineup for this year’s I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! has been revealed.

• Adele Roberts
• Caitlyn Jenner
• Ian Wright
• Nadine Coyle
• Andrew Whyment
• Jacqueline Jossa
• Kate Garraway
• James Haskell
• Roman Kemp
• Myles Stephenson

How many of these names do you recognise?

Don’t feel bad if, like me, you haven’t heard of most of them. I hardly think that being aware of the existence of these so-called “celebrities”, is anything to be proud of.

One of those names that I had not heard of before today, is Roman Kemp.

Despite not knowing who on earth he was (before searching Google), his name jumped out at me, for obvious reasons!

It is going to sound really weird, everytime I hear Roman’s name mentioned on the show. There is only one Roman that I know…

After reading today’s news, Roman might not be going to Australia anyway. Some offensive tweets have been dug up and have come back to haunt him.

What a rubbish episode of Who Wants to be a Millionaire last night! There was no excitement or thrill. It was a waste of time and ruined my entire evening!

The reason for my disappointment? Nobody lost any money.

I am sure I can’t be the only one who takes pleasure in watching contestants becoming greedy, only to lose tens or even hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Either that, or crashing out early, by being a bit… well… stupid.

LOLz.

This is why I could never watch the show live in the studio. Not only would I be unable to hide my hilarity in some poor sod losing a fortune;  when it comes to participating in the “ask the audience” lifeline, I would pick the wrong answer on purpose.

If 81% of the audience were meanies like me.

No contestant won big money Sunday, but at the same time, no cash was lost. Crap.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
