There seemed to be a bit of a buzz on Twitter of the many Partridge moments but probably nothing significant enough to change the ratings (or lack of!) too much
I have sort of enjoyed the show with Richard though (and even Helen), I find they genuinely seem interested in the guests and their stories as opposed to Steph just going 'Yeah, yeah, oh yeah' and basically sticking to her script
They do seem to have silently dropped the £1,000 viewer phone in feature unless that is just because Steph is away
I thought Helen was good, her delivery felt refreshing. I find Steph often reads the autocue and then adds a question or statement, like she’s saying what she thinks about the topic coming up, which sort of interrupts her flow.
They have dropped ‘4 For A Grand’, I think they finished it the week before the Christmas break.
Not really surprising though, Plumbs don’t even sponsor the show anymore, now being sponsorless as they were at launch.
“Nostalgia’s cool, but it won’t help me now, the dream is good, if you don’t wear it out.”
Interesting comment over on the Digital Spy ratings thread, apparently during a podcast Jacqui Smith who appears quite often on the show mentioned they send a taxi to her home in Great Malvern to take her to Leeds then back again, a 300 mile round trip of 3 hours each way! (for a 90 minute show)
