Now this has no intention of upsetting any of those who like this show, but I don't like it. It isn't because I hate any of the women or anything but I don't like the format. I do admit I am the sort of person who does find daytime TV bland, with the exception of the educational children's programmes I used to watch. I will give credit though and say that it is not as bad as some of the confrontational shows airing, and I like Denise Welch and Jane McDonald, but this is quite faint praise. Firstly, I don't like the layout of the show. I like a show that talks about current affairs, life in general and several issues that are worth discussing but it is the way the women interact that bothers me. They talk over one another and contradict each other, and maybe I am being a killjoy but I find that incredibly rude. Secondly, is it just me or does anybody else find the audience incredibly annoying? I know Jeremy Kyle, Maury and Jerry Springer have annoying audiences who prejudge and swear at the guests, but the audience is like being present in a very loud audience for an entertainment show like American Idol or The X Factor. Thirdly, while I like Denise and Jane who both have likable and big personalities, I am starting to find Colleen bland and I have never liked Carol, though I can't put my finger on why that is. Fourthly, the pacing, very uneven at times, there are parts when it drags. Fifthly, I don't like the theme tune of the show, I find it somewhat generic. Sixthly, some of the guests, Kaye Adams was bossy and annoying, there was a man who has a prejudice against "fat people"(I wish people would stop going on about weight, I mean it is important to be healthy, but judging someone by their height, weight and looks rather than their talents and achievements is becoming a tired out cliché), and Lesley Garrett is a lovely singer and has an exuberant personality but she was far too nice for this show. Overall, I don't like it, quite frankly I find it bland and boring. Sorry! 3/10 Bethany Cox
