And will Cameron Diaz ask the BBC to make the HD more soft focused than it is already!

Aside from my absolute dearth of experience in TV and my IT-centric CV I fancy my chances.

Surprised Cruise can reach the pedals in a car.

I wonder how many attempts they'll give Cruise to record the best time?

I imagine Cruise will be pretty good actually. He's known for being focussed, and I'm sure I read something about him getting some genuine race experience when he was prepping for Days of Thunder.

They'll tie wooden blocks to his shoes like Short Round.

That new Diaz Cruise film must be awful if they're making them hawk themselves aside from on the chatshows

Funny you should say that because they ARE on the One Show tonight. Not in the studio though, they mentioned something about coming live from the UK premiere...

An advert in the TdF coverage today suggests they're on GMTV soon as well (missed the day though).

The one show appearance was painful to watch. The presenters in there at the moment are so unbelievably useless they make adrian childs look like a professional. The first question directed to cruise.... "What do you think about internet dating."

I'm just catching up on this series and just watched the motorhome episode. I am pretty sure that the forum's very own shoelessjojaxon was stood behind Andy Garcia during the interview. Am I right?

Totally agree. It was horrendous & hugely embarrassing.

Apparently Cruise and Diaz's new film has bombed alarmingly in the states and is losing money hand over fist which is why I am not in the least bit surprised they are getting desperate to plug it over here on the likes of third rate crap like The One Show!!!

With GMTV and Top Gear added to The One Show on their list of desperate appearances, they only need to do This Morning to get the set!!

I watched a review of "Knight and Day" or whatever it was the other day and they actually thought it was an okay film. Does look **** though so it's no surprise it's tanked.

That's better... That was dangerously close to being a back-to-how-things-used-to-be episode, and I quite enjoyed it.

I thought that was a brilliant episode all round - even the star in the car bit was entertaining. The Senna bit at the end was simply excellent, and you could tell that Hamilton was properly in awe of that car, and everything that it stands for.

The Senna tribute was the best piece they've done for a long time. Loved it.
