I did not find it particularly funny, but think she takes herself a bit too seriously, and cannot take to her. I am ashamed to say I was pleased to see her taken down a peg or two last week when she got tangled in her boa, she had been a bit too confident.

Several old proverbs come to mind - mainly 'Pride comes before a fall'. Her claim to fame is sleeping with famous men - big deal. She now has to prove herself and so far has totally failed. Hope she is first out.

That awful Curry woman was first out. grin

Doesn't sound like she's too bad a person in her normal life.

I did not know much about her before, apart from the Sven thing, so was surprised to find that,as you say jinglej she is not a bad person. I should not be so quick to judge on scant info.

Well Nancy was featured in the telgraph magazine some weeks ago where she went on and on about how fabulous she was and that everybody thought so! so i was quite pleased to see that ' pride does indeed come before a fall'. is that schadenfreude? never quite sure what that means.

Oh susiecb I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought it was funny -I also had tears streaming down my face, it was like watching some galumping great girl dance. They made it to the next round[!] but I think that was due to Anton Du Bek not her as he is a bit of a character. Sorry jinglej I'm not a fan and if you are going to constantly put yourself in the public eye you have to have a thick skin.

The clip they showed yesterday was a bit funny.

Apparently on Saturday, I said to DD, "Oh she's good, isn't she" and DD thought, "Err, no! she isn't", but was too kind to say it out loud!

I have got no taste! grin
