    Be nice to see if Asians, Africans, Afro Caribbean or other people of colour get offered parts to participate in the Emerdale TDF

    It reads like some harebrained Nigerian scam email scattered with grammatical errors, and who says 'inbox me' and expects to be taken seriously? 1/10.

    I've lost 10kg especially for this! I no longer look like a stunt double for Daddy Pig :wink:

    It's television, so I'm surprised they don't grab a load of scrawny wild eyed junkies as all pro cyclists must be on drugs.

    I suppose for it to look 'realistic' they will have to get you some replica team gear. What's the budget?

    Cue a barrage of beer-gut clad dads riding Ribble road bikes screaming "hold you're liiiiiiiiiine!!!!!" :D

    Apparently she's been inboxed to within an inch of her life and can't take any more. I don't think I need to wear lycra to look a fool on TV.
  • Tragically it appears to be true.... it seems her inbox has been well and truly filled :shock:


    Maybe it was her invitation to be 'inboxed' by sweaty men in lycra wielding carbon-fibre exotica wot did it.....

    Nothing to do with this programme, I was filmed for a programme about restoring a classic car. Thankfully I was edited out and didn't appear in the final cut. Very happy about that. Why would anybody want to appear on TV?
