Possibly The Best Thing About The 1998 World Cup
28 January 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I really did enjoy FANTASY FOOTBALL and David Baddiel and Frank Skinner resurrected the format for the 1998 world cup , or as it`s known in America the soccer world cup .

Truth be told I can`t remember much about the tournament except for the fact that Scotland once again went out in the first round after a really poor display , and I can also remember little about the show itself except for the appearance of Brigette Nielsen .

Dane Brigette and French musician Jean Michel Jarre were invited onto the show to discuss their countries performance in the tournament earlier in the day but within seconds of their appearance it became obvious Brigette Nielsen had been drinking heavily . She kept interuppting the conversation with Jarre then suddenly stood in front of the audience and started shaking her ..... well " twin strikers " I suppose football fans would call them , much to the delight of the males in the audience . Not content with this Brigette went over to Baddiel and Skinner and started to thrust her cleavage in their faces . " Sit down Brigette . You`re making a fool of yourself " whined Frank to which Brigette retaliated by sticking a Danish pastry in David`s face . The commercial break came up and Brigette was missing from the second half of the show much to the disappointment of myself who loves to see drunk people make fools of themselves on chat shows
