love it
19 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

omg i love burnistoun it is the best programme ever, it is so funny, I wonder sometimes where they actually come up with this patter but its brilliant, the reason for my post is basically hoping that maybe one of the cast members will read this, I especially love the sketch in the elevator, the it's raining sketch and also the sketch where Kelly mcglade is being interviewed by the burnistoun herald, I was hoping that you would read this as I would love to see a sketch where Kelly McGlade auditions for xfactor (solo or in the band) and also more sketches of snide looks, keep up the fantastic work Thanks P.S I love burnistoun x
