Jane McDonald quits Cruising with Jane McDonald!!

Recommended Posts

All good things come to an end, or so they say, such a shame a popular show like this has to be one of the things that end.

I think she'll be back. I think she has overestimated her skills as a singer ( yes, she's good, but not that good). Once she isn't all over the TV the popularity of her singing shows will drop off.

I've just been given her autobiography as a late birthday gift- the giver was waiting for the paperback to come out, which it did on Thursday.

It will take me back to my childhood haunts in Wakefield.. 😄

Let's see, but yes the CV timing is a good observation..........

Hope we can understand Susan? Ouch! As a fellow Scot I really hope that’s a joke! Susan speaks very clearly , I’m sure we won’t need subtitles for all you Aussies that only enunciate in the perfect Queens English!   She’s nowhere near as funny as a Jane but that’s another story ....!

Maybe Jane Mac can be the star act on Fred Olsen Line ships, given her apprenticeship some decades ago as a ship's cabaret singer, no I did not say on the Titanic !!! She would fit right in with the demographic on Fred🤣

 

I did watch most of her shows on TV, quite entertaining, although her laugh got to me sometimes.

I canna understand the Jocks.   I had to stop watching that TV show 'Shetlands'   I had great difficulty taking in the lingo with those broad accents.  Och aye the Noo.mars.jpg.a53970f6f77409c9e2bdd7bcecd53ec2.jpg

Did these hail from the Highlands ? Ye olde fried Mars Bar.

In Hamish Macbeth, they had some characters with a much broader accent, Like TV John.

And I have trouble understanding that thick dialect mangling of the queens English from dahn unda! Haha guess that makes us even 😉 Susan is hilarious in her own mind only! And hope she doesn’t try to sing!

Never tried or seen a deep fried mars bar either! Probably a myth like corks around your hats!

I have never heard of her. Perhaps the show will be more on cruising and he ships and ports than herself.

Stayed in South Queensferry with cruising friends from Glasgow, and the chippie there was selling them! 😁 We don't know if anyone was buying, though...

There can be people with corks in their hats but it was a thing of yesteryear, most people would find them irritating bumping around in your face, fly/bug spray or cream is much more affective nowadays.

Saw a you tube video of her at the comedy Festival, she was okay but not side splitting funny. I think she may work well as a presenter.

No not Susan Calman 🙄 dont find her funny or right person at all. Not sure who would be might be good to have had a Male host for a change. 🤔

Not a myth at all. If you want something a little different, our local chip shop offers battered Terry's  chocolate orange segments !

With Michael Portillo you would need sunglasses for his choice of outfits? yellow trousers anyone ?? No he's pompous beyond belief and doesn't seem to relate well to people The one and only Billy Connelly was totally brilliant on his travel programmes such a shame he is ill and couldn't now manage. He was funny intelligent and had that special something that made people all over the world warm  to him. Perhaps I could suggest  Kevin Bridges? at least he's funny!

Billy was always funny and is such a nice guy as well. Met him on the street once in the Rocks (an area on Sydney Harbour), I just said "G'day" as he was walking by, he stopped and had a quick chat which was totally unexpected.
