Anyone else listening to this? I actually quite like Patrick and Gaby but they're just not working on radio today. It's making Alan Carr look like the saviour of Radio 2. Oh, well... thank heavens for the off button.

I just think the format of the show is soooo silly! I can hardly believe that a slot that used to house Gambaccini is being used for this tripe. All these silly women ringing up about what they are wearing, or their cosmetics..... grrrr Twisted Evil

I hadn't actually realised that these two were depping until I happened to catch it while going out to get my lottery tickets this evening but you know what?

They actually made this dreadful format for a radio show almost listenable. Just for once I wasn't tempted to wrench my in car radio from the dashboard and throw it out of the window.

I just can't understand why Radio 2 need to bring this sort of dross to the schedules. That's why we have local radio stations

Gaby obviously needs the work. She doesn't get any telly work these days so I'm sure it's a case of taking anything that's going. It's such a shame that the Radio 2 controller deems this junk as being a suitable vehicle for her talents.

I get the feeling that the current Controller, Radio 2 isn't much better than the previous Controller, Radio 2. Is he of the view that the bulk of his target audience are unthinking morons? Perhaps he is - or perhaps they are!

Cool

It's like Bob Harris was used like s**t before Russell Brand.

I thought this pairing was absolutely awful, I listened for as long as I could bear to and ended up feeling like throwing the radio through the kitchen window. Happily I just switched it off, I'm no good a glazing!

I just don't understand how the tag line " Going Out with Alan Carr only and Emma Forbes is there. Patrick Kielty and Gabby Roslin are both named. It just dosn't add up. Either name Emma or just remove her, and let Alan go solo?

Patrick isn't too bad. I saw Gaby the other week on Celebrity Cooks Challenge and used to present CIN with Wogan. She seems to be creeping back like Emma Forbes and Liza Tarbuck have. Is Radio 2 a place to recreate your career?
