    I just watched a ''Very'' advert with someone called 'Sam' and her doing stuff [which is just an advert] ... but people in the advert seemed to react to her like she was someone significant...

    Anyone got a clue?

    And on a more general note... I have no idea who a lot of ''celebrities'' are these days... a lot of these reality shows leave me cold, not got a clue who they are.

    I must say I agree. Luckily my kids are able to identify these people for me but then I instantly forget them. I still don't know who Joey Essex is. I am struggling to make sense of the BBC advert featuring the teenage boy in the amusement arcade who is joined by his mother. I don't get what the heck it is advertising.

    I've heard his name [have I got the right gender?]

    But I couldn't pick him out of a crowd.

    ..but on the plus side you've got all your own teeth.

    I probably could, given a photograph, a SAKO TRG 42 Finnish long-range sniper rifle and a 'double-0' licence.

    It’s not intended to be an advert. It’s a Christmas ‘thi g’ designed to explain to us all how we should keep our nearest and dearest close at Christmas.

    Apparently, it has made some people emotional. Not me.

    Many thanks for the explanation, foxtail. I must say the "excerpt" for want of a better word has made me emotional ……..very cross...…. because it drags on forever and delays the start of the programme I have switched on to watch.

    I thought the sad boy thing was just a promo for watching BBC this Christmas. It was the launch of their Christmas programmes.

    I'd be sad too if I had to watch BBC programmes over Christmas.

    To be honest it makes me emotional every time I see it because it reminds me of how I let work take over my life and neglect my kids (pre-breakdown). When I return to work I’ve vowed to change my ways. I also liked the dad and the dancing daughter last Christmas.
    I don’t know anyone from Love Island, Hollyoaks, TOWIE or Made in Chelsea but my kids would know them all.

    I solved that by not having kids. Now I just neglect myself.
