Seems to be a lot on telly about fat people recently. A program on Channel Four last night made fat people eat skinny peoples food and skinny people eat fat peoples food. Who would have thought watching someone else eat something they don't normally eat would make such compulsive viewing? Channel Four executives obviously. In my opinion they were wrong and shots of the two freaks in various states of undress only made me feel ill.

On the other hand I quite like programs about people to fat too move. I suppose it is the freakshow thing.

So Independent readers what are your guilty TV pleasures. Please don't lie and claim you have one just for the news...

I watched that programme and I got what they were trying to do but... I just felt like I didn't really need to see it (but then again, I don't really like Big Brother).

My guilty pleasure?

Children's T.V, especially the educational programmes on in the morning, like Numbertime. That, and Disney.

I watched that programme, and I understand the theory, and if it works good on them, make people healthier, they give them healthy eating plans and stuff they don't just say "swap diets".

My guilty pleasure is Eastenders... I watch it to make myself feel better...

"My life could be worse, I could live in Walford..." it;s like my mantra

I love cartoons... not all cartoons mind, but the action adventury ones. And currently feelk guilty in that I have really got into Harry Hills TV Burp.

I was in the room then other night while the wife was watching the Chinese channel, and found myself drawn fascinated with the music video (in Chinese), of a popular chinese recording artists singing an upbeat country and western style line dancing ditty while dressed as camp cowboys with stick on facial hair.

Once when I was in china I stumbled accross a dubbed version of 'A Bridge Too Far' and found myself unable to change the channel until I could discover if Sean Connery was dubbed into Chinese with a Scottish Accent (he wasn't).

UFO documentaries. And ones about ghosts. I don't even know why I watch them any more given nowadays I think both are a pile of shite.. maybe just force of habit.

I like Market Kitchen on UKTV Food, my wife and I watch it nearly every night. It's a really tough addiction to break.

Hmmm, since I moved into my new place about 8 months ago I haven't bothered getting a tv license, and don't feel that I'm missing much really. However I used to adore countdown! haha. What with working full-time I couldn't watch it anyway now even if I did have a license :(

In The Night Garden. One glance at the Haa Hoos reminds me why I take nothing stronger than caffeine and aspirin.

That, and Sir Derek Jacobi doing the voiceovers.

"Isn't that a pip?" One of these days, I'll catch myself saying that in public.

The Tumbleypoos are the best. Though their lack of morals disturbs me, because they all drop their trousers and then start making out, no matter who else is around.

Endless repeats of panel shows on Dave. I've seen most of the episodes before but I keep watching them again. I think it's because it's late, I'm tired and I don't want to watch anything that requires concentration.

I also keep catching myself watching Inspector Gadget or Fraggle Rock on the kids channels, also late at night when I'm tired. :)

I don't own a television - haven't done since early 2000. I got rid of my last one just before Big Brother first aired, which only serves to confirm that I made the right decision :)

Most Haunted. Especially when Derek gets possessed!

Interestingly, there also seems to have been an explosion in cookery shows. They are everywhere!

My guilty TV pleasures are Come Dine With Me and Deal or No Deal. I can never get bored of them.

Thankfully, as I am fat and dieting, I missed that one last night.... Phew!!!

This is possibly because I was enjoying one of my best guilty pleasures, American Crime Drama -CSI, CSI:Miami, CSI:NY, Law and Order, NCIS (My fave!). I also love Saturday Cooks on the old beeb, but, my small boy kind of insists on CITV at that time of the day, unless I get serious about things.

Have you looked to see if the cookery program is on bbc iplayer? I know they have masterchef and market kitchen there.

Why are we being addressed as Independent readers? Not everybody in the world is, you know.
