Fashion City drinking

7th April 2017

Ellie was at Fashion City York last night for the launch of their fashion village. There was free prosecco so Ellie saw a lot more of that than the fashion but the words 'distressed denim', 'embroidery' and 'statement pieces' came up a lot. Ellie started badly, getting ready in 15 minutes and having to iron her top with her straighteners. If you want some style inspiration go to the Minster FM instagram story and have a look at twitter for the catwalk looks.

Ellie is off next week to a hen do which she is very worried about as it's a t-shirt affair. They have all had to get pink t-shirts with black writing on, but she has no idea what they say. Awkwardly, she doesn't really know the bride or the bridal party so what on earth is going to be on the top for Ellie? There can't be much of a nick name because they don't know her. They are going to Edinburgh so Ellie is being asked all the questions so Ben suggested they might have 'tour guide' written on the tshirt, or maybe she will be the only one with the tshirt so they remember she is there in the first place.

It was Lie Detector Friday and after Ellie's fashion extravaganza last night, Ben asked her what she thought of her Mum's style. She said great and got electrocuted. Ellie got electrocuted before she even answered what she thought of Victoria's sense of style and then Cat of the News came live into the studio to grill Ellie. Ellie got electrocuted and tried to smooth it over asking where she got the outfit from. It was awkward.

GAME WHEEL at 7.30am
This week on the Game Wheel you can win a family pass for the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.

Today it was The Big History Quiz and it was a lesson in why you don't just google things. The question was, who invented the steam train in 1784? Ellie was looking for William Murdoch but was forced to accept James Watt amongst other. Beth was our winner who had also googled the same answer as Ellie…

SCREEN STARS
You can win 2 tickets to the Vue every morning at 6.20 am with Screen Stars. The 80s week came to end with this, '
Well, that's the story. So if your air conditioner goes on the fritz or your washing machine blows up or your video recorder conks out; before you call the repairman turn on all the lights, check all the closets and cupboards, look under all the beds, 'cause you never can tell there just might be a gremlin in your house'. Ellie didn't blank out the word gremlin so it was all very easy. Alan from Tadcaster was correct with Gremlins.

PANIC
Play Panic to win £25 if you can name 5 things related to the ‘Panic List’ from your chosen subject at 8.15am. If you panic, you will receive a panic button!

Today Sue had a go at naming five Britney Spears songs but could only get the one unfortunately!

Next week Ellie is off on the hen do so Ben will be flying solo! See you after Easter!

Which is the best Motorway Services?

30th March 2017

We started the show accidentally discussing out favourite service stations. Ellie's is Woodhall simply because it has a Starbucks and is on the M1 on her way home. The overall winner seemed to be Leicester Forest services and Ben thinks it's worth Ellie driving past her house in Nottingham to have a stop off and drive back. J21 on the M1 if you fancy a gander.

We had drama at the gym yesterday when Ben and Ellie went training for Dirty Hero. The first issue was Ellie only had swimming kit but they decided they couldn't go swimming together because it would be too weird. Then they both wanted to go to the steam room afterwards but didn't want to bump into each other. Ellie went in and because she couldn't see anything, she spotted a space right next to the door so just sat down. Unfortunately the only other person in the steam room was lying down next to her with their face very close to Ellie's derriere. Ellie couldn't move and couldn't look round but then had a horrible feeling it was Ben so was trying to listen to their breathing to see if she could recognise it. Thankfully it wasn't Ben.

Ellie had jean drama this morning when she has put on jeans that don't feel right. When she got to work and they were falling down she thought she would check and they're not hers… they were in her wardrobe so who knows where they have come from. Ben reckons she's taken them from York Sport by accident… If you are missing a pair of jeans give us a call.

GAME WHEEL at 7.30am
This week on the Game Wheel you can win tickets to see Rock of Ages at the Grand Opera House on Tuesday 18th or Wednesday 19th April.

Today it was Bandety Blank: REO Blank. The band was REO Speedwagon and Trisha was our winner.

SCREEN STARS
You can win 2 tickets to the Vue every morning at 6.20 am with Screen Stars. Today, 'go go gadget legs!' from Inspector gadget, who Ellie called Mr Gadget and caused all sorts of problems. Luke was our winner.

PANIC
Play Panic to win £25 if you can name 5 things related to the ‘Panic List’ from your chosen subject at 8.15am. If you panic, you will receive a panic button!

Today Vanessa tried to name five Celebrity Big Brother contestants. It was a bit controversial as she didn't give last names so we had to disqualify some of her answers and she only managed two.

Tomorrow it's Lie Detector Friday and it's Ben's turn to be put to the test. If you have any questions let us know!
