Cue the dodgy knees exemption from some of the tasks!
However for those that he eligible to compete in there are thousands of fans who will vote to see him surrounded by various football agents(cochroaches,meal worms etc )

I'm not happy with the amount of criticism levelled against 'Arry. It should be higher :wink:

Haha his knees wouldn't allow him to stand up for a few hours to watch training so I very much doubt he'd put himself through the jungle.

He'll be appearing on Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls next....

Used to love watching "celebrity" every year, but given it a miss the last two or three years due to the celebs becoming real z listers who no one has ever heard of. Might watch a bit this year if HR is on it, I think he's a great character.

I don't watch any of these shows apart from my research into the habits of the lower orders. George Orwell was right,television lowers peoples' standards. :wink:

I'm currently reading Bill Bryson's: The Road To Little Dribbling

Chapter 11: Cornwall begins with:

For some time, I have believed that everyone should be allowed to have a dozen or so things they dislike without having to to justify or explain to anyone why the don't like them. Reflex loathings. I call them.
Mine are:
1. Salmon-coloured trousers and the men who wear them
2. People who say 'Stonking'
3. Tasting Menus
4. The parents of any child named Tarquin
5. People who give their telephone number so rapidly at the end of long phone messages that you have to listen over and over and eventually go and
fetch someone else to come and listen with you, and even then you still can't get it.
6. Calling an invitation and invite
7. The BBC red button
8. Most book reviewers...
9. Colour names like taupe and teal that don't mean anything
10. Writing 'mic' instead of 'mike' for microphone
11. Meryl Streep when she is being adorable
12. Saying that you are going to 'reach out' to someone when what you mean is that you are going to call them or get in touch with them
13. Kettles that don't have a little red light to show whether or not they are on
14. Radio 4 afternoon plays
15. Harry Redknapp


Even an American knows the truth.
Keep an open mind, but not so open that your brain falls out.

So that's 50% of Fulham supporters covered too then.

I do love a Bill Bryson book.
