Does Tyra Banks drive any one else crazy? This show wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for her, so I am thankful for that. But every little thing about her hurts my poor brain, from the way she says ‘wHo will be eliminated TonIggggggggHT’ at the start of every episode, to the way she has to be the oracle of every thing, if Tyra doesn’t know it it can’t be true! I found the part with the Dragon in tonight’s episode particularly annoying. Grr.
I have found a really neat and fun web site that lets you create ‘number plates’ for fun. Take a look at 4plates.co.uk to see it in action for yourself. I am seriously considering buying a load for friends and family as Christmas presents, I think these are great little Novelty and Funny Number Plates gifties…my niece would love one with her name on it for her bedroom door, but I can think of several uses for them for pretty much every member of my family. I even think they’d be a great thing to give to any members of any sort of team you are involved in, be it a sports team or just a group at work – you could buy one to sit on the desk of every one in your office with cute little slogans or sayings on that reflect their owner, the possibilities are endless with this fun service. Just enter all of your desires in to the form on the site, what you want it to say, what font, size etc…choose from one of the 100s of backgrounds and logos already available and if they don’t have a design you like you can email it to them and they will add it! Plates will usually be dispatched within 24 hours!

Shepherds pie, apple pie and cherry pie, a feast for a starving celeb, but no. These pies, Brian was told turned out to be mealworms, cockroaches and green ants. He chomped on through as many as he could, fishing stars out, whilst one million flies were dropped on him. Ewwww!

8. John Lydon’s Beat The Birds, Series Three
It was the former Sex Pistol v 12 ostriches, as John Lydon, covered in thick black molasses treacle, collected ostrich eggshells that contain stars.
When he heard what he had to do, John said: “You’re joking, these things kick and scratch like buggers. I’m going to get hurt.”
Living up to his image, he didn’t seem frightened as he talked to his new two legged friends whom he referred to as “budgies”.
7. Joe Pasquale’s HELL-O-COPTER, Series Four
Comedian Joe Pasquale faced the most dramatic Bushtucker Trial to date when he had to unravel a series of banners on a ladder dangling from a helicopter above the ocean.

And after collecting several stars he said: “I need to have a pooh.”

4. Burrell’s Temple of Doom, Series Four
Former Royal butler, Paul Burrell, went “to infinity and beyond” in his memorable trial. He squealed and gasped his way through, delving into a rock face full of creatures to get stars.
“It’s rats, it’s rats, it’s rats!!! Oh my God, oh my God it’s rats! Oh my God!”
He then shouted out: “Ah, they’re biting me! Ah ah. Move over darling, move over darling, move over darling let me get the star. I don’t want you I only want the star.”
3. Carol Thatcher’s Highway to Hell, Series Five
Producers built a high-wire roadway suspended a terrifying 100ft above the ground in the jungle canopy. Carol had to drive a specially built red postal car along the horrific highway, delivering a mail bag of stars into 10 boxes strategically spaced along the length of the tracks.
Carol succeeded despite not having a driving licence: “Look, I warned you I didn’t have a driving licence. I don’t drive, I take taxis. Call me a cab.”
2. Fashâ€™s Eel Helmet, Series Two
For the celebrity who’s been there and done it all, Fash had to place his head in a water tight, clear perspex box. The tank was then filled with water, and eels were released via a shoot every 30 seconds.
Fash looked visibly shaken, when Ant told him: “It’s probably one of the toughest trials to be honest with you.”
