Welcome to my Friday’s Rants from the Soap Box in my Living Room. A small space in the week where I can have a chunter about things that have made me twitch with annoyance or made me question if the world has gone mad or not….
I also linked up with MummyBarrow for her Ranty Friday. You can find her blog and link up here if you’d like to join in. A good rant can be therapeutic.
On my hit list this week:
The new “reality” tv programme “Splash” that starts this weekend, on ITV, where celebrities are taught to dive, by Tom Daley. Before you all yell at me in Tom Daley’s defence, I must say that I think he’s lovely, I admire him, he’s achieved far more than I ever will, he’s an Olympic star, he’s an amazing diver, he lost his Dad recently to cancer. I don’t have a problem with him, at all. I know he was harassed on Twitter, and hasn’t had the easiest of times, I am NOT a Tom Daley hater.
I do however, wonder if ITV has lost the entire plot?? A programme about celebrities, learning to dive? On prime time weekend TV? I can’t decide if they think we’re entirely desperate, or if it’s just me being mean, and millions of people will tune in to watch various “celebrities” belly flopping into a pool, and humiliating themselves, as they usually do on these programmes?
