    If I could have a Christmas present this year, it would be for the coronavirus pandemic to disappear for good.

    Re: Diana BBC interview

    Speaking of Martin Bashir, I was sorry to hear about him being unwell with the coronavirus - I hope that he gets well very soon.

    Re: What films have you been watching lately..

    I have looked on the Sky EPG and saw quite a few the Christmas films listed on there - I was thinking whether during the early hours of the clocks going back an hour on Sunday morning, I might watch...

    Do you know, I feel like that at the moment as well. Isn't this the time of year when Boots and Argos have their Christmas catalogues out? - the latter who have now scrapped their traditional...

    I have looked on the UK Game Shows website but couldn't find anything - was it similar to game shows like Busman's Holiday?

    Likewise, I could never have predicted at least 43,579 people in the UK could have died from something that wasn't even in this country this time last year.
