Fifty Shades Darker drama

15th February 2017

Ben and Ellie both exceeded at having an awful Valentine's Days. Ben bought his wife 'the mug of love' which she described as his 'lowest moment' and then he panicked, bought flowers and got told off for buying flowers at Valentine's prices. Oh, and Nicholas smashed Jess' iPad which he left for her to find in the morning because she had gone to bed early. Ellie was really ill so was sat with her hot water bottle, in bed, alone. She had said earlier that 'she just wants to be held'. Then in an act of true love her Mum turned up at the door with comforting treats and a cuddle (worth noting she lives in Notts).

Ben had set up a Valentine's surprise for Ellie… to go and see 50 Shades Darker. With him. 'Unfortunately' Ellie was ill so Ben had to go alone like a total weirdo. His review was absolute garbage. His main issue was the lack of plot (no sure people go for the plot) and what is Christian Grey's job? Ben wants it as he seems to do no work and just have a great time.

GAME WHEEL at 7.30am
This week on the Game Wheel you can win a pair of tickets to see Elton John at the First Direct Arena in York.

Today it was The Baffler. What flies without wings? Not including Westlife. We had loads of answers we had to accept; flag, kite, hot air balloo. But the answer we were looking for was time and Richard 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, 'So Mowgli went away and hunted with the four cubs in the jungle from that day on. But he was not always alone, because years afterward he became a man and married'. The answer was the Jungle Book and Jo was our winner.

Today Carl smashed panic in record time naming five days of the week in French in about three seconds.

Valentines Eve show update

13th February 2017

Ellie had a bit of a tragic weekend. She went home and a new lock and alarm has been installed at her house and no codes were given to Ellie. She then was in a bar alone and the minimum spend was £5 on card so she had to get two drinks. The bar was pretty full and she heard a couple snooping for seats say 'no, there's two drinks, there must be more someone else there'. There wasn't. Then she convinced a bunch of 17 year olds in Maccies that she deserved to skip the in the queue because she was just getting chips and there was just her. Ellie thought she swindled them but Ben pointed out that they probably felt sorry for her as she has become Bridget Jones.

With Valentin's Day on the horizon we have found the least romantic story of all time. Ellie's brother rang her up to ask if he could give his girlfriend and old teddy that her ex boyfriend gave her five years ago. WHAT?! Ellie's Mum now feels so bad for the girl she's gone out to buy a present for her from Ellie's brother.

GAME WHEEL at 7.30am
This week on the Game Wheel you can win a Minster FM pen!

Today it was the Fake News. There are two news stories, one is fake and you have to work out which I fake news. Today the stories were: a new app has been released which gives you £10 for reporting other drivers who park illegally OR China is replacing building with forests because the air pollution is so bad. Story 2 was fake news, they are just putting shrubs on the roofs.

SCREEN STARS
We started our new competition to win 2 tickets to the Vue every morning at 6.20 am… Screen Stars. Today, 'I love you Molly, I always have. Ditto'. A moving performance from both of us. And Maggie was our winner.

Today Jo gave a valiant effort naming 4 different types of melon but couldn't quite make it to five.

Tomorrow Ben has a Valentine's surprise for Ellie and Cat (we're nervous) and we are talking about Jill Brennan friend of the show's love life.

Friday show update from Ellie B

10th February 2017

It was Lie Detector Friday; a Valentine's special. Gemma asked if Ellie had ever sent a Valentine's card to another friend's boyfriend. She said no and got electrocuted, maybe that's why she has no friends. Ellie was also asked if there is someone in the Minster FM office that she wanted to send a Valentine's card to. She said absolutely not and got electrocuted again. Nightmare.

We spoke to the lady going on the blind date today with Helijet and Devonshire arms. She likes the sound of Carl so far but she is looking for a Tom Hanks kind of person so we will see how they get on, on Monday morning.

GAME WHEEL at 7.30am

Today it was the Three Second Theme Tune (a slight variation of Three Second Soundtrack) and today it was Blind Date. Helen 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, 'This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off'. Despite Ellie having no idea how to pronounce Nostromo we managed to get a correct answer and Barrie from Selby was our winner.

PANIC

Today Andy started well but didn't quite manage to name 5 Royal parks in London.

On Monday we will see how the blind date went and Ben is going to try and make Valentine's Eve a thing. Ridiculous.
