ED Balls has made the news for accidentally kicking Susanna Reid in the head. But which annoying TV stars genuinely deserve it?
If he had to kick someone from Good Morning Britain, it’s a shame Balls didn’t choose Richard Madeley. He’s been a twat on daytime television for years and doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of retiring, but a hard enough knock to the head might render him unconscious for a few blissful minutes.
Steely-eyed silver fox Paul is one of the most arrogant people to have ever appeared on our screens, dispensing revered handshakes as if he is Jesus healing the sick rather than a man who is quite good at making cakes. A big punt from Ed Balls might knock some of the swagger out of him.
Everyone on Loose Women
Watching Loose Women is like eavesdropping on a table of pissed-up women in a Wetherspoons, slagging each other off and arguing for the sake of it with no clear point. It’s a mystery why it’s still on telly, and is so rubbish that its own viewers regularly call for it to be cancelled. If Ed Balls could turn up on set and give them all a kick in quick succession, like a ninja, it would get millions of new viewers and probably win a BAFTA.
Having appeared on I’m A Celebrity and briefly hosted a chat show, Dorries counts as a TV star and if anyone needs a boot to the head it’s her. She and Ed would have been in parliament at the same time and it would have been difficult to kick her there, so he’s probably itching to do it.
What is it about cooking on television that turns some men into absolute bellends? Ramsay deserves a massive kick, and it would be extra-humiliating to bronzed, hyper-masculine Gordon if it was delivered by a pudgy politician who appeared on a camp dancing show. Put the boot in Ed, he’s very annoying.
The Compare The Market meerkats
Mildly amusing when they first appeared on screen in 2009, these irritating animals now have a complex backstory and a growing family, and all because of an incredibly lame play on words. All of them need a big kick in the head, especially the idiot wombat nephew Carl. Perhaps not so much a kick as a ‘thorough stamping on’.
