Trivia

Rock drummer Phil Collins, who was tricked into taking part and wore a t-shirt with the slogan "Nonce Sense", subsequently claimed the makers of the programme had "serious taste problems" and took legal advice. He claimed the show would "probably now affect many celebrities' willingness to support public spirited causes in the future and it's not difficult to see why". See more »

Freakin' Great!
21 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Who ever put that review as 'of bad taste' is not all quite there... its so funny, genius and fantastic you could watch it until your eyes are square! not to mention the rest of the work he has done on the rest of the series...all is as good as Morris' standards. if you think that it is 'awful', 'distasteful' or 'sick' then i can only think of one thing to say to you: "go to hell." thanks. it had to be said! i think that the way that so many people complaining was a complete joke...i would like to make a shout out to all the people that actually did that: "haven't you got anything better to do with your time? what are you trying to prove?" thanks for reading my heart-filled review on the matter...cheers
