    I have just been reading that on the program This Morning a knife thrower was trying to see how many knives he could throw at his assistant in a minute, and he went and drew blood. They had to switch to the adverts pronto,
    Did anybody see it?

    Heard about it on the radio only. Apparently he hit his assistant girlfriend in the head, though not too 'badly'. But it had Fern screaming etc.
    It's classic moments like that which you need on some recorded format. Let's hope she sues him then maybe we can have that Troy Mcclure Simpsons' voiceover dude show it on Police, Camera, action.

    Excellent. I hope it's available as an AVI/MOV/MPEG somewhere.

    I saw this!:eek:

    The poor girl, who before the stunt had described scars she carries from previous "accidents", was walloped on the top of the bonce with a knife as the thrower was approaching a new record, I believe. Anyway, he kept throwing and she was terrified - the fixed grin began to melt away, she cowered and leaned forwards to try and avoid any more knives. She was bricking it!

    The knife thrower eventually stopped with about 5 seconds left to go. Fern dashed on and checked out the girl's cranium - "Oh look, she's bleeding!" - while Philip Schofield, in a classic Alan Partridge-esque style, declared "Marvellous! Marvellous! How many knives was that?" or words to that effect. Sorry I can't quote verbatim what was said but you get the idea.

    Anyway, "Now let's go to the news..." while we viewers chewed our fingernails waiting to find out about the girl's head. After the news we returned to Fern & Phil, who as well as issuing a "don't try this at home" directive assured us she was okay and "head injuries bleed more than other injuries to the body". Great, thanks Phil!

    I had to go out at this point so I never saw if the girl was brought back or not..........it was great telly, though!:eek: :D

    Hi,

    Maybe some enterprising sole at ITV could release an uncensored version of all these "unique" moments that "This Morning" has given us.

    Highlights would have to include:
    - the gay wedding (behind-the-scenes aftermath special)
    - the above knife-throwing accident (producers/TV executives fly-on-the-wall special, complete with live audio commentary feed)
    - the "Let's Try Viagra" (in the style of "Big Brother")
    - the "How To Check For Male Testicular Cancer" special, with special strapped-to-Fern's-head camera footage!
    - the original stripper/flasher on Fred's floatable Weather Map
    :rotfl: :rotfl:

    What do you think? Any more moments that should be added, from the cabinets of "This Morning"?!

    Wasn't there also a "Check for Breast Cancer " spot with Dr. Chris and a page 3 model? John Leslie was also in attendance.....

    I think I remember the Viagra one - the couple involved were interviewed at the start of the show, then went away, the chap (oops, no pun intended) took some Viagra, they spent an hour in bed somewhere, and at the end of the show got interviewed again to ascertain whether or not something had come up....

    Maybe this is all a figment of an over-fertile imagination......

    Good idea, though, Pooch, about a This Morning Uncut Special - except a lot of these TV folk can't really laugh at themselves, Richard Madeley just makes me think of Alan Partridge.......doesn't like jokes against himself......

    I saw one once where Paul Daniels was doing this escape trick and he was in something like an Iron Maiden and he only had a minute to get out before it shut and pierced him to death. He took over a minute and the door shut and there was a gasp from the audience and the faded the show out. Then the news came on. Loads of people thought it was real and there were a few complains.
    I think some where miffed it wasn’t real.:laugh:
    I thought it was one of Paul’s best trickles ever.:smashin:

    They don't need Alan, just get Madeley back on...:D :laugh:

    Watch some Alan Partridge and then watch some Richard Madeley - the genetic link is clear for all to see!
