Default Comic Relief - Red Nose Day

Is anyone doing anything, will you be sporting your red noses this Friday?

I just watched Victorian Dragons Den on BBC i-player, Harry Enfield as Deborah is hilarious.

I wouldn't say I love her as she is a bit in your face half the time, but she can be pretty funny sometimes.

I totally agree. I also wonder where the money goes after it has been collected. All these major charities have massive PR and chugger companies working for them all taking a piece of the pie before what's left is given to those in need and even then how do you know it goes to the most deserving? To be honest it seems to be more of a PR opportunity for Z list celebs than anything else. Just my view...
