Sharleen from Texas destroys Ben

8th March 2017

This morning we had Sharleen Spiteri on the show this morning telling us all about the new album and how York has a terrible pyjama selection. Ben got her to play panic naming five Texas albums and, of course, she smashed it in about five seconds. We also relived our favourite moment from the Texas gig last night, after Ben managed to squeeze five Texas song titles into his introduction, Sharleen came on stage and dubbed it, 'the worst introduction they've ever had'. See all the videos from the evening on the facebook page.

Ellie's car is in for an MOT and service on Thursday so she has had to do some pre-work on the car because the windscreen wipers started flopping about. Ellie went to Halfords to buy some new wipers but didn't want to pay £4 for them to clip on the wipers… So she went outside and realised that the way she had been clipping on her previous wipers was because the hinge had been broken the whole time. So then she had to set up a YouTube tutorial on the bonnet whilst stood next to the guys that would have fitted them for her. She did it though and they have changed her life… they are so quiet.

Ben and Harry had an awkward moment in the pool yesterday. They were both swimming and met in the middle of the pool and awkwardly stopped to have a chat. Then Ben weirdly went in for the hug even though they were both in speedos and the whole thing was so awful Ben had to leave immediately.

GAME WHEEL at 7.30am
This week on the Game Wheel you can win a pair of tickets to the Living North Spring Fair at York Race Course.

Today it was Fake News: You can now order pizza with your shoes or McDonald's is stopping McFlurries. Which is the fake news? The answer was McDonald's, they are not stopping the McFlurries - just changing the ice cream machines. Graham was our winner.

Tomorrow we have Collabro on the show, the BGT winners and we are making them take on a Stack Attack challenge between the four of them… we think it will get competitive.

It was the aftermath of the Woga night on Saturday and Ellie is still nursing the hangover after staying up with Ben's wife till 3.30am chatting but neither of them can remember what about. Jess had made a proper spread of food but Ellie caused chaos when she brought down some chips for Nicholas and Ellie dived straight in thinking they were part of the canapes. They looked a lot like patatas bravas…

Ellie B's daily blog bit

28th February 2017

The show started with a bold statement from Ellie that pancake day is better than your birthday. Her reasons being that as you get older the presents dry up, you start dreading getting older, whereas with pancake day the older you get the better. Ellie used to be limited to three pancakes when she lived at home and now she's independent she can have allll the pancakes.

It's world book day on Thursday and we were struggling for ideas. Ben suggested that Ellie go for Victoria Beckham since she released an autobiography called 'Learn to fly' or maybe Bridget Jones as she has lots of frumpy clothes… Ellie said she couldn't compromise her integrity as an English Lit student and would come as something like the Hungry Caterpillar, since it's the foundation of literature.

GAME WHEEL at 7.30am
This week on the Game Wheel you can win tickets to see Rule the World, a Take That tribute, at York Barbican on Saturday April 29th.

Today it was Life in Lyrics: These days everything changes, but pray tomorrow is the greatest day. The answer was Take That and Cath 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, 'He's no monster Gaston, you are!'. The answer was Beauty and the Beast.

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!

Rita gave it her best shot naming five members of the Kardashian family but didn't quite make it. Then burned Ellie by saying she doesn't have time to watch that rubbish, even though she loves MIC and has a dog named after her… pot kettle black Rita!!

Tomorrow we will discuss how we got on with our Dirty Hero Obstacle Challenge… hint, we're going to need some help!
