Ellie's sexy dance moves

23rd February 2017

Scientists have invented the perfect move to attract the opposite sex and Ellie has smashed it...

Other stuff going on today on the show...

A list of the most boring jobs has been revealed and anything legal gets the number one spot. Ben then said, imagine being married to someone with the most boring job and hearing about it second hand… His handy tip is to ask at least three follow up questions to make it look like you really care. Sometimes he takes notes.

Ellie missed most of the Brits because she was trying to reconcile her relationship with her mother after Ben insulted her choice in budget hotel. Ellie’s Mum has said she can’t stay with her now in the hotel because of their comments. Ben has tried to make it better by getting a card for Jill for her birthday tomorrow. You can see the card on FB/twitter, it’s ridiculous. Jill then tweeted that a bottle of prosecco might be needed to close the rift… demanding!

Ellie is the girl on the train

20th February 2017

Ellie was furious at the weekend because the blatant disregard for train etiquette when she was coming back from Edinburgh. She had to move to let another lady in to the seat next to her and they had a quick chat. Ellie then said 'sorry I'm going to have to be boring and sleep because I've only had a few hours' sleep'. Ellie shut her eyes and then ten seconds later the lady asked her another question… she opened her eyes slowly to emphasise she was sleeping and then shut her eyes again. Ten seconds later the lady asked another question… ELLIE IS SLEEPING PLEASE LEAVE ME ALONE!

Ellie then revealed she likes to use the train as a setting for an imaginary movie. She stares out the window puts on some emotional music and just imagines an award-winning monologue. Turns out she's not the only one as Karen rang up and says she does the same thing, and imagines she's in music videos. Specifically Will Young's music videos, which we all thought was a bit strange.

Ben is having a parenting dilemma. They have reintroduced the naughty step but Nick has turned it around on them after they found him having a nap on the naughty step. Nick now goes to the naughty step when Ben and Jess annoy him, thus giving him all the power. He won't leave the naughty step until they give him what he wants. Evil genius.

GAME WHEEL at 7.30am
This week on the Game Wheel you can win a trip to Selby Superbowl for a game of tenpin bowling for a family of four.

Today it was Fake News. Which of these two stories are fake? 1. a family took their dog in for plastic surgery so it looked more like the dog from The Mask. 2. Liam and Cheryl are planning to call their baby Jim if it's a boy because Liam's favourite movie is The Mask. Story two is fake and Samantha was our winner.

SCREEN STARS
We started our new competition to win 2 tickets to the Vue every morning at 6.20 am… Screen Stars. Today, 'Eat my shorts!'. The Simpsons was the answer and Hannah was our winner.

PANIC
We started our new game Panic to win £25 if you can name 5 things related to the ‘Panic List’ from your chosen subject. If you panic, you will receive a panic button!

Today Rachel gave it a good go but couldn't name five Michael Jackson UK number 1s.
