Gest Wearing Out His Welcome in the UK?

Posted By on Sun, Apr 29, 2007 at 4:00 AM

"How many times can a guy say 'Holy focaccia' before it ceases to be funny? Once."

Oops. The early reviews are in on former Memphian David Gest's new British TV show. And, like Gest himself, they aren't pretty.

From The London Mirror: "Plumbing new depths of pointlessness, ITV's Sadly, This Is David Gest swiftly established itself as the worst programme of the year. OK, I made up the 'Sadly' bit.

"Minutes into the first instalment of our hero's staged fly-on-the-wall-to-wall-boredom series, the message was clear: Come in Mr Gest... your time is up! Setting up home at London's Grosvenor Hotel, David was 'determined to cash in on his UK fame while he's still hot property'.

"In another wild over-estimation of his popularity, the I'm A Celebrity weirdo declared: 'Why not stay where you're loved?' Where would that be?"

Well, we here in Flyer.com-land say that would be Memphis, of course! Come on, DG, you know you miss those Gus' Fried Chicken lunches.

And if you must, you can read the whole bitchy review here.
