Yes to Come Dine With Me SA! I love this show!
AKA's roast panel doesnt inspire confidence shem, the whole thing sounds like a yawn fest.  I hope they will surprise me.

Ditto your Yes! to Come Dine With Me Timone - it was fab. Light and carefreee. 

I loved Candice - so sweet and generous - and Crystall's pure reality sletty.

The weird thing with her is that she genuinely seems to be like that - I can imagine she's the same behind closed doors - except she'll look VERY different without all that caked-on make-up. Unrecognisable I'm sure!

I found Gert-Johan's house too cold and grey, brrrr... too much influence from that devil child of his.
