You might love Charlie Brooker, you might loathe him, but the fact is he and his show are really quite remarkable, because it really takes apart the horrendous products of modern television and really hits home the issue of shoddy mainstream journalism, something that many of us let easily slip by.

So Jim Davidson has apparently won Celebrity Big Brother and the nation is split. There are those who believe he is a racist, misogynistic wife-beater who should never have been allowed back on TV, others who see him as a changed man who should be given another chance and some, probably the majority of the CBB audience, who just see him as a middle-aged comedian.

Ben Shires

A little known fact about me: I once spent an entire school year, Year Ten to be precise, sporting Martin Fowler from Eastenders' jacket (here's Martin's face when he first saw the offending item) The reason it's a little known fact is because I've done everything in my power since then to suppress it. But perhaps now is the time to finally face my coaty demons and then zip it for good.

What I have done is sex. Even as a female comedian. Against all odds. It's a miracle. I haven't had sex with enough people to call it academic research (unfortunately), but just about enough for a theory to emerge from my funny little brain.
