"Well I never."

I am back from most excellent adventures in France and Spain. Full post and selected pictures to follow.

In the meantime, I bring amazing news to these shores. The French version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? has an fourth extra lifeline. Contestants can replace the current question with a randomly selected alternative of about the same level of difficulty.

Amazing.

Right. Day off so am bounding off to frolic in the sun.

I think they've used that option ('the flip') in the UK version, but only on celebrity editions. I don't know whether they're extra generous because it's all for charidee, or because celebrities are by definition thickies.

Yes. Celebs. The poor loves. They are not usually the sharpest tools in the head.

On the other hand, they don't have to spend several hours battling with BT's internet tech support helpline, so it all evens out. Or something.
