However, I note that Danniella Westbrook has now expressed her condolencesm so it's not her.

Channel 4 News showed a clip of her. Good god she looks rough now compared to how she was when she was with that East 17 chappie. :o

Edmonds used have a Saturday evening show, 'The Late Late Breakfast Show' where members of the public where challenged to undertake a dare selected from a 'Whirly wheel', a sort of spin-the-dial device to select the challenge.

The dares were various stunts, that if inexpertly done, could be fatal, but should be safe under expert supervision.

One week's stunt was bungee-jumping from an exploding box suspended from a crane, Houdini-style.

The unsuspecting member of the public plunged to his death during rehearsals.

At the inquest it was revealed that the supervisor of the stunt was completely out of his depth and BBC's health and safety precautions were minimal.

TV people regard the general public as fodder. You usually only get on TV if you are prepared to do something dangerous or humiliating, although some talent shows do actually encourage talented performers; they used to be freak shows too.

They still are freak shows. Reality TV IS the modern freak show.

Well, we all know from watching Kyle that trial by television is contemptible.

Posthumous trial by Her Majesty's Press is much better.

Trial by peers - work dodgy, daytime telly watchers.

He must have upset someone. His entire TV existence has been cleansed from all platforms and he's been pretty much memory holed. The speed at which he's been judged and executed is astonishing.

Stalin was good at that.

Aye.

I reckon it was The Gideons.

Replacing the desecrated Bibles in half of Manchester's hotel rooms every week must've cost them a fucking fortune...!
