Perhaps the only people foolish enough to get a GMTV phone-in question wrong (e.g. ‘Who lived in Sherwood Forest? A Robin Hood B Shrek C Peter Pan’*) were the people who thought it was worth £1.80 a time to enter. It’s a scarily large number: 25,000 raising £45,000 each day.
But it’s not just the phone-in side that looks dodgy. Check out Kate Garraway picking the short listed out of a hat. She’s quite blatantly looking at the entries before choosing the winner. I’m not saying she’s looking for the name of a mate, but shouldn’t she turn her head away and at least put on a show of picking a winner at random?
*Answer: Robin Hood, stupid.
