Did anyone else, apart from Maddie, catch Murder Most Famous yesterday? Why would you? It's on BBC2 at 1.30pm weekday afternoons for a week. Why?? As reality shows go it's a good one, and deserves a better time-slot.
Anyway, I heard about it a while ago, so made a point of watching it yesterday, and will remember to record it for the rest of the week. It's rather good. Minette Walters is in charge of five celebrities, who are given tasks and challenges to help them write a crime novel. The celebrity with the least potential each day, will be kicked off. There are some good writing tips - on the website as well as the programme and you can keep track of the celebrities writing progress online.
Of course being a 'reality' show it's a bit dramatic and over-the-top, but on the whole it's good fun and I'm hooked, even though 'crime' isn't really my forte, writing-wise. I'm so glad one particular celebrity went yesterday though - right at the beginning he said...'oh I don't read books.' WHAT??? That's like a top chef saying he doesn't like to eat. Crazy.
Anyway, catch it if you can. Never mind about work...
