    IT'S AWFULLLLL. I mean I usually love camp men but the presenters of this channel are just beyond belief. Especially the guy that keeps dancing.
    Erm, not that I willingly watch it...it's just my brother loves it...he is weird. *giggles* there was a bidder called 'sexbumface' once though, that kept me amused for many seconds.
    Seriously though who would bid on that, except for bored gullible housewives?

    But it's good post night out fodder, although not as good as the mighty bid up!

    Anyway, what I wondered was whether people had actually ordered owt?

    I've not bought anything from them; I don't have enough in my account to debit, but my uncle buys from those two a lot. I guess it must be OK if he still buys.

    My watch strap broke last week and will cost £40 to fix, so I bid on a watch a few hours ago. however... no return call. I just wondered if this was common practice for lots that didn't make what they intended.

    I'd say it was probably just one that slipped through the net. I'd only worry if they take your money without sending the watch.

    I doubt they let the auctions make too much of a loss anyway, personally.

    Blatantly... how can you not? Watching some ex regional TV presenter enthuse about towels for fifteen minutes. Fantastic.

    And bid up has Orange Man. I think he's on now, the crazy loon.

    Sob! but for once the watch was subtle and not the usual bid up/price drop bling chunky shite!

    I quite liked it.

    ...You could always go for the Joan Rivers hour on QVC. If she's doing watches I'm sure that they'd be just as subtle.

    Ah, he's good, but Orange Man just has the edge.


    He glows. Quite literally.

    No chance! But I guess you quite a bit younger than me and don't have vivid images of Peter Simon presenting Blue Peter - shudder!

    Plus Andy has been the 'anchor man' ( ) since bid up went live, They used to have a few funny page on their website where by he denyed being the love child of Alan Partridge, and Steve coogan denied having farthered him!

    Back of the net! Premier Leagure!
