I know we’ve had a champions series before but who would be open to future series starting to see returning contestants? I would love to see some past contestants getting another shot. Another champions series would be great but sometimes the champions aren’t the best/entertaining contestants from a series.

I’d probably rather not in fairness. It’s tempting but I’d rather see new folks given the opportunity. They could always do a short alumni series, with some of the funnier people who didn’t win.

I think I'd rather see an ultimate losers episode than another champions one. Get the worst ever 5 and see who is the worst of the worst.

I recall reading somewhere that Alex Horne said the reason they can't do this is because it would look very racist.

This is a little old, but I found it on Reddit.

The bottom 5 there wouldn't make it look very racist.

Bare in mind the different number of episodes per season. If you do average:

Though it would be a good season.

It would be funny as strawberry float though.

No discussion on last night's episode?

Johnny Vegas having a meltdown in the lockers task was great. :lol:

Unfair (but funny) to mock Daisy for the paddling-pool-dive thing, though. I knew exactly what she was talking about, and I thought it was quite a well-known thing.

I definitely knew what she was on about, they used to make jokes about it in cartoons all the time! :lol:

Does anybody else find Daisy Mae very irritating?

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Generally she seems likeable enough. None of the contestants have annoyed me this season yet.

Except for the prize task where they all seem to have agreed "bring in something really gooseberry fool".

I thought I wouldn’t take to Johnny Vegas as I don’t think I’ve ever liked him in anything but I’ve found him to be brilliant in this.

The good thing this show has done is convinced my wife to watch it with me. She loves Daisy May Cooper so is watching this series with me, and because she’s enjoyed it so much we’re watching them all from the start! Currently up to season 3 and just seen the bastard balloons.
