I have every respect for womanhood, but this part of it really does take the biscuit. Bad enough when the awful Kaye Adams (Surely 'Hayley' from Coronation Street's sister) was on it, it descended even further into the tripe stage with her departure (She's now taken to mentioning 'her baby' every five minutes when she guests on 'Countdown'). Awful over-the-top laughing at anything only slightly amusing, crap items about the 'ex' (incidentally, on that score, I agree with everyone who says McGiffin only got the job because of 'her' ex, Chris Evans) (wonder what took him so long?), wrinkles or 'the top I bought a Woolworth's' etc etc provides a dreadful hour on the telly. The programme makers ought to be ashamed of themselves, but of course even though it makes money for them, they probably can't stand it (Remember Gerald Ratner, anyone?)and head to the boozer whilst it's on. The quality dramas that used to be on in this slot with fine talent have been swapped for...this? I only gave it a 'one' because there isn't a minus - 1.
