“They were ten times worse than that”, said Debbie Henderson, 35, a member of the losing ‘No-Hopers’ team on last night’s edition of TV’s Eggheads quiz show.
Ms Henderson, an administrator from Grantham, Lincs, was adding her voice to the ongoing debate around the smug, arrogant demeanour of the general knowledge boffins that make up the eponymous ‘home team’ on the show.
“They were nothing like the smug shits they come across as on TV. In fact they were ten times worse. That CJ De Mooi – what a drama queen! He was constantly rolling his eyes when anyone got a question wrong, preening himself between takes, and minced off in a total strop when that one that looks like a paedophile got a tennis question wrong”.
“Then the one that looks like Wolfie’s Mum off Citizen Smith – is it her by the way? – wet herself with excitement when she guessed a pop music question right and insisted that filming was stopped while she got the bloke with the stupid sideburns and cocky smirk to clean her up”.
“I tell you, it was only when the posh one started giving Jeremy Vine a hand job under the desk – she thought I couldn’t see but I got the measure of her – that I thought there’s at least one of them that’s got her feet on the ground. You go girl!”
