Just seen a trailer for Sleb MasterChef, stats on Wed.


What is a "sleb"?
Couldn´t find the word in my OED! :shock:

Just catching up on this.
I have heard of John Barnes but none of the others.
Doesn't seem to be a car crash so far, but I wouldn't serve a sauce with coleslaw.

That Telegraph article's behind a paywall so can't read it, but if that's Phil Daniels in the pic, he's famous as a Popstar, as an Eastender and I seem to remember him appearing as a character actor in everything that was going in the 70s, although the character was always a cheeky chappie cockney.

John Barnes played for Watford before he was famous, his initial signing fee was a full set of Watford football kit.

I couldn't read the article either. I believe that Sam Quek is (or was) an England and Great Britain hockey player.

Sorry about the paywall, I had not realised it was there.
Two episodes tonight, why?

I have heard of 5 people on that list, but I don't read gossip mags or trashy newspapers and I don't watch reality TV.

I have heard of Greg Rutherford though ;)

When Center Parcs first opened, way back when my kids were small, we went for a weekend and John Barnes and his family were in a villa nearby. He was absolutely lovely to my kids. Great ambassador when not all footballers were getting a good press!

I've heard of 10 of them.

John Barnes always comes across as a really nice chap. Despite his football celebrity, he's always seemed very grounded.
