Apparently I'm ...........Smile


40% Spooks' Ros Myers
30% Radio 1's Jo Whiley
30% 6 Music's Lauren Laverne

You love TV thatís sharp and well-crafted so you probably enjoy home-grown British comedy. Films are important to you and youíre probably ahead of the crowd when it comes to technology. (Don't think so....Smile )Youíre likely to love spending time online -whether itís finding out more about your favourite personalities and interests or organising your social life!

I don't watch Spooks..well I did for the first couple of series and I haven't listened to Jo Whiley for a very long time....so..... Smile

Do the quiz here..

I'm a little happier

Congratulations!
Based on what you've told us, if you were a BBC personality, you'd be

40% QI's Stephen Fry
30% BBC One's Sherlock
30% Radio 4's John Humphrys
Youíre probably up with all the current news stories, tracking them throughout the day, from radio, to TV to online. For you, TV should provide intellectual dramas, wonderful music and quality documentaries. Radio is likely to be at the core of your day, and stations like BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4 provide the sort of stimulation you need with the wide-ranging content you enjoy.


I was worried I'd be some soap character Rolling Eyes

People say I'm a clone of Chris Hughes from Eggheads and I must admit there is a passing resemblance both in appearance and personality and we both live in Cheshire and we are both interested in transport issues
I do get annoyed at times however when I buy a new shirt and about a month later I see Chris wearing the very same shirt in even the same colour on the show
Bearing in mind what they say about twins natural empathy I'm beginning to wonder whether I have a twin brother and nobody has told me!

Well, I am,

40% BBC One's Sherlock
30% David Mitchell from Mitchell & Webb
30% Dalek from Doctor Who

Odd since I watched none of Sherlock, none of Mitchell & Webb and haven't properly watched Dr Who since the days of Colin Baker mid 1980s.

Just shows how out of touch the BBC is with some of its viewers/listenrs Very Happy

Yes, that was worrying. So I've tried again swapping preferences and now,

40% QI's Stephen Fry
30% BBC One's Sherlock
30% Radio 4's John Humphrys

Well yes I DO like Q1 when I see it (accidently when flicking) but as I said before I've NOT watched Sherlock, and I don't listen to Radio 4 EVER.

OK, if I HAD watched Sherlock maybe I would have enjoyed it (when is it repeated?) but I put Radio 3 as the most listened to radio station and they've ignored that.

OMG!.....

40% Radio 2's Elaine Paige

30% Ashes to Ashes' Alex Drake

30% BBC Breakfast's Susanna Reid

You probably like to sit back and relax with something like BBC Radio 2 on in the background - who doesnít love to hum along to a good song on the radio? You can feel all the cares of the day fading away. And a bit of a laugh listening to witty banter from your favourite DJ doesnít go amiss either! When youíre not tuned to the radio great, British, feel-good TV probably hits the spot for you.

Yeah right, that's me.

That's funny - that's what the blurb said about me!

I think that the range of results is rather limited (in fact I know they are, because several people on another forum came out with the same)

I didn't much like the result, so I did it again with different answers for everything- same result! Spooky!

This is mine!


40% Newsnight's Kirsty Wark
30% Radio 4's Charlotte Green
30% Radio 4's Sandi Toksvig

Wonderful music......chance would be a fine thing and I can't stand the music on Radio 3! Radio used to be the core of my day until JW lost Drivetime, Richard Allinson lost his Saturday Show and things got worse and w o r s e......

No, Helen, because even before I googled Susanna for a photo I remembered seeing this vision one Saturday morning

I know it's personality rather than clothes sense, but I'm sure that you both have the personality to know that that does not look right (and I don't just mean what they've drawn attention to)

Spooky, Ron. I'm just the same as your wife!

Based on what you've told us, if you were a BBC personality, you'd be

40% Doctor Who's assistant Amy
30% Getting On's Jo Brand
30% Waking the Dead's Dr Grace Foley

You probably seek your own path through life, and this is reflected in the TV and films you watch. You tend to be loyal - once youíve found something you love, you stick with it, and watch every episode. Quirky and unusual storylines appeal to you, whether itís comedy or drama, because youíre an individual.

Actually, I'm surprised she didn't come out as 40% Amanda Redman, 30% Susan Jameson and 30% Lynda Bellingham, cos she's addicted to New Tricks Laughing
