How come Mumsnet gets the lovely Idris and we got Giles Brandreth?

Apparently some of the questions were x-rated and had to be deleted tchgrin

Grandmothers also like sex on legs talented actors!

Suppose tat is the way the cookie crumbles !
Think we are delicate little flowers !

Riverwalk Wed 18-Dec-13 14:39:02

They think we're old women tchshock

To be fair Mumsnet were most envious of Michael Palin and Sir David Jason and a fair few others. But we will be doing our level best to get lots of sex on legs some very interesting guests in in 2014.

You might have to offer more than cake - in the words of Calendar Girls "considerably bigger buns"??tchgrin

CariGransnet (GNHQ) Wed 18-Dec-13 15:57:23

We don't have an issue in that department blush

Moving swiftly on...

Do let us know if there are people you would particularly like to "talk" to in a webchat

Riverwalk Wed 18-Dec-13 16:03:27

So what are you offering Cari? tchwink

Lona Wed 18-Dec-13 16:23:06

Actually Cari, I'd quite like to have a nice chat with Hugh Jackman if you can sort it! tchwink

Brad Pitt is 50 today! Has he been offered Gransnet membership?

Anne58 Wed 18-Dec-13 17:50:06

"Bigger buns" ? Humph, I can barely manage an Amaretti biscuit tchblush

Nonu Wed 18-Dec-13 17:52:27

OOOOER , Missus , I rather like Big Buns !

Anne58 Wed 18-Dec-13 17:56:02

I would be a great disappointment then, although in their defence they are rather "pert". tchgrin tchblush

Nonu Wed 18-Dec-13 18:02:44

You may well tchblush young lady.
Where is the Scotman with his kilt AKA ?

Ana Wed 18-Dec-13 18:05:24

Didn't you watch 'Luther', jingle? tchshock

jinglbellrocks Wed 18-Dec-13 18:08:06

He apparently has just played Mandela in the film.

I never know their names. hmm

Mishap Wed 18-Dec-13 19:21:39

Riverwalk Wed 18-Dec-13 21:17:08

jinglbellrocks Wed 18-Dec-13 21:17:40

Did wonder about John Humphries.

Ana Wed 18-Dec-13 21:19:08

jinglbellrocks Wed 18-Dec-13 21:23:59
