From the "expert" they brought in to talk about Ricicles being 51% sugar or something.
and her rubbish little counterpart?
The Expert said "No, it's only associated with dental problems. Fat is the thing that usually gets...stored."
Bill Turnbull, of course, just sat there grinning like an imbecile.
And they moved on. Misinformation, on the licence fee!
i thought she got more of a grilling than most of the mp's get.
to people who absolutely do not want to be publically served.
So you end up with stuff like Breakfast which is neither a chat show nor a rolling news service.
Somebody says something clearly wrong and idiotic, what do you do? Because, keep it light! Keep it light or they'll go to ITV!

Susannah Reid should be left to do it all on her own 7 days a week.

Sugar gets turned into magic pixie energy juice inside you, which is stored only as tummy rainbows.
See I can learn from breakfast TV too
Wheres my ricicles!! ;-)
Unfortunately loads of people think that you can eat sugary yoghurts and lose weight because they're "98% fat free!!!"
It would be nice if Auntie was on the right side with this one.
Bill Turnbull: NOT a public service
