The series earned the dubious distinction of earning the most Ofcom complaints of 2011, when the media regulator received 2,220 complaints after Wright made a misjudged joke about a murdered Scottish teenager during a newspaper review. This came only two months after Wright was forced to make an on-air apology the day after hosting a controversial phone-in about Amanda Knox titled "Foxy Knoxy: Would Ya?" following her successful appeal against her murder conviction.

This show is complete rubbish, produced by dummies, hosted by dummies, and watched by dummies. Part of me appreciates the fact they are trying to raise awareness of important issue etc... but they just do it in such a lame way. They view EVERY single stupid issue, as a true/false, yes/no, right/wrong, kind of issue, and 99% of the time, its not! For that reason alone, they always miss the point, they always make themselves look like a bunch of idiots, and they always annoy me.
I don't particularly care because its daytime TV, and daytime TV is aimed at housewives with no brain. But the fact is, these housewives are like the backbone of the UK. If they are bright, they won't watch the show. And if they are a bit thick, then the show should educate them, but it fails at that.
So basically, it fails as entertainment, and it fails as education. So the only people who actually enjoy it, are dummies who think they are watching some cutting edge political news program, when really, they are just a bunch of nose pickers, watching a guy with a fake tan and a stupid face.
