OK! TV is the latest addition to the bewildering circle-jerk that is Richard Desmond’s media empire.
candid carrie you just need a bit of love you sound so bitter what has josie and john done thats so bad sorry dont understand you my heart goes out to you
Great to read such a positive response to Josie Gibson.
re the JJJ Court thread... unfair to accuse my fellow court-mates, who make their views known to one an all who care to read them, there are a lot of haters out there, including disgruntled AT members (banned ones) and others that we see on twitter on a daily basis. Accusations without proof are totally unfair.
Why are there so many nasty people about. I find both Josie and Kate to be lovely women but Josie definatley has the better personality. John James is a lucky man and so are Channel 5.
Actually I think we agree on most things. :-)
Its a shame denise van outen backed out of presenting this show, would of make a much better job than the current women presenter, as it is its to much like the show it replaced. I liked her in the Apprentice but unfortunately she is not good at presenting. I agree with the majority of the comments that Josie Gibson was a natural on the show, just going on all these comments shows how popular she is even the few negative comments shows they have gone out of there way to read about someone they don't like, they seem slightly obsessed to me.
why do the haters feel the need to keep writing about a couple they dislike. Josie is popular on everything she goes on, the Losse Women panel loved her (know this for fact) People have slated John in this comment panel, why he doesn't deserve this. As for the gay stuff, people seriously need to look at the rubbish they are writing. If you don't like this couple, thats fine, jog on and let the JJJ crew enjoy what we know is genuine
When one thinks of cross-promotion of Desmond assets one thinks of a strident salesman with a lot of sh1t to sell saying eating sh1t is both good for you and perfectly normal, loudly and at every opportunity, until enough people believe him.
sad sad sad that the new stateman allowes this rubbish from haters to be printed all we poeple want is to enjoy john james and josie to have the right to be who they are in the eyes of us who care about them
I wish josie and john would just
Buzz off neither has anything real to offer and she will destroy oktv
single handledy the ratings say the show is already a flop.
loved article it just proves what a great person josie is lovely personality shining throughout her segment... I see a few haters on here. why would these stupid people go out of their way to read an article on someone they don't like and take time to right rubbish about it? jealous much !!
Fake Fake Fake!!!!
@Sheila that comment is laughable, you have gone out of your way to make a comment about a couple you don't like, that in itself shows how popular they are.
I think Josie was really great,loved watching her on OKTV.Just wish she had a longer slot,she is like a breath of fresh air.I wish the haters would leave JJJ alone.
omg i come on to see how many comments got added after mine and wtf, there are some nasty people out there omg.
why do these people read and comment if they dont like someone soooo annoying. Josie was the main part of the bloody show ratings will be high on Wednesdays then any other day of the week !.
Josie did amazing, she needs to be on more often one night a week is not enough xx
What is wrong with you nasty people. What did Josie Gibson ever do that is so bad that u speak of her in this nasty way. Josie is a very caring kind and warm lovely person.. She like anyone else wud like to make a better life for herself and her partner John James. She has just started out hopefully in a long term career. Give her a break people she's doing really well has so much to give on our tv screens. If your not a fan of hers then why says hateful things about her. Surely you could hold ur nasty thoughts and just allow her to do something that she really wants to do with her life. Shezha39 is a good person with only the fans best interests in heart. Live n let live people. Josie Gibson Rocks!
Loved Josie on OKTV on Wednesday and wish that she had a longer slot. She was very funny and raised the show when she was on. I only wish that they had her on more.
yeah and watch this space cuz Caziebear is ur next super talented celeb lol. Like that one Caz? x
Love Josie! She deserves a more often place on the show, and can't wait to see more of her on TV! She was born to be on our screen! Love love love Josie Gibson xxxxxx
I agree with this article about the boring-ness of OKtv, what a load of drivle. Josie Gibson's 5 min slot was a breath of fresh air - she's so natural and relaxed. With her what you see is what you get. Hope to see more of her on our TV screens
The only part of OK TV worth watching was Josie Gibson Hope to see much more of her on the show We love her xx
I agree with a lot of the comments about the lovely Josie Gibson, I think she is a star in the makeing such natural talent and when you watch her you always have a smile on your face, all the best to her xxx
OKTV is almost the same as the previous 6.30 Channel 5 show with the exception of a new red sofa and for one night only per week the naturally funny and very watchable Josie Gibson. If she was on every night i'd watch every night!
I can't understand how anyone could hate on Josie Gibson, shes a complete star who has raised and gave lots of money to her charity clic, goes out of her way for her fans, and hasn't got a bad bone in her body. I watched Josie on OKtv and Loose women, she was very funny and a complete natural, how anyone can say different is beyond me
Couldnt stand watching grosie Josie on BB, she was a bone idle, scruff that got lucky. Hope her and the ugly gay aussie will soon leave the country.
@maria why are u even reading and commenting if you dont like her, you are nasty she is actually really pretty so go get ur eyes tested and funny the best one that was in BB clearly thats why she won with 77% of the vote.
why do people keep persisting that john is gay he isnt get over it. If he was why did he fall in love with Josie he could have had Mario he had plenty of opportunity when mario was throwing himself at every man walking in there and if you got the chance to have him in ur bed you wouldn't kick him out jealous desperate minge
i think some comments on here are disgusting if you feel so strongly about disliking josie don't read write or talk about her so much . She is a lovely bubbly girl with loads of personality.
WOW! So many jealous people on here today aren't there, don't worry hopefully your lives will get better soon. Josie is a lovely person who is getting the success that she deserves and I'll enjoy watching it all unfold :)
@maria comon then lil miss perfect if ur so god dam hot lets see ya. You can't have much intelligence if all u can come up with is nasty schoolground comments about Josie Gibson. Grow up ur being silly! Jealousy is a disease yanno and it's incurable. Feel quite sorry for ya.
It's nice to see a real person present on TV that hasn't had their regional accent clipped. Her laugh was infectious and what a pretty girl all natural instead of being a painted butterfly. But on the whole OKTV was nothing more than a rehash of its predecessor but with a name change. http://www.carinsurancehq.net/
no need to be nasty to the two nicest people to have come out of bb house good on them i hope they continue with all there great work and have an amazing life that they deserve and to the haters "jog on "
Have to say that this is all so funny, when Josie comes on screen I find her cringe worthy and endearing in equalk measures......hence great for TV!
Don't think her and John James are fake, just think they will grow apart naturally over the next couple of years that's not to say they aren't infatuated with eachother at the minute.
Love to see more of Josie for pure entertainment....Kate is like cardboard...useful but boring...great chemistry with Matt and Josie
josie is amazing a true natural on the tv so funny wish her and john james all the best for the future. haters can jog right on why bother writing about people you dont like get a life you sad twats.
I really enjoyed the show the reason being that Josie was on and I will watch every wednesday. There are some seriously nasty comments on her jealousy is an evil thing all I can say is good things happen to good ppl and josie and john are amazing kind and friendly ppl, there are a beautiful couple and deserve all the happiness they get.
Josie Gibson was brilliant on OK!TV she is so genuine and down to earth, as well as being so funny. She has such a captivating personality that is why so many people admire her. She definately needs a longer time slot on the show - 5 minutes is nearly not long enough. Well done Josie you are a star xx
Good piece, Steven. The truth is that cross-promotion,in all its tackiness and dishonesty, is just getting started in the UK. Ofcom's plans to relax the rules on local media ownership, can lead to a situation where all the papers, TV and radio in a single area belong to one company. Aside from the very worry democractic consequences, we can expect a veritable feast of cross-promotion.
At DemocracyFail we are equally concerned about the introduction of TV product placement. Like cross-promotion, it is insidious and pernicious, and will have far more worrying impact than many people imagine.
If you will forgive the "product placement", we have blogged on this recently at http://democracyfail.wordpress.com
Not sure the New Statesman is used to such childish behaviour on its comments page. The article is actually about cross promotion in media. But I do admit I do love Josie.xx
We live in a very sad society when malicious nasty people feel the need to negate positive comments about a lovely couple who have done nothing but good (raising a lot of money for charity) since they left the BB house. Fact of the matter is that is amazing in front of the camera and I for one wish her every success with her future presenting career. To the sad jealous people posting nasty inarticulate comments here, find yourself another platform please.
We've been exposed to cross promotion for years, Sky News being a prime example of it where the Murdoch message, news inc and industries are unfairly promoted.
Steven Baxter: do you ever feel slightly...misunderstood?
how refreshing 2 c a young lady on our tv screens that knows the true meaning of gratitude..josie gibson is a diamond among costume jewellery,she has the sparkle that draws u in 4 a closer look,never loses its value & if looked after will last 4 yrs 2 come...continued success 2 u josie u a an example of how good things happen 2 good people
Ppl leave neg comments about josie, needs to get a life, jealous of Josie cos shes a natural funny, sense of humour nd beautiful inside and out. Best pearson to win out of all the winners of bb. Good luck josie, dont let haters get to you. You deserve the best and you got alot of support with all ur fans that love you and that's millions! xx
y do people think they have a right to leave nasty comments about a lovely girl like josie she has done nothing wrong all she wants is a better life for her and john james xx
@Lou Yes, you're right to say we've had cross promotion for years in the Murdoch media. When I said "just getting started", I should have added "on an unprecedented level".
I should have also made the point that cross-ownership is increasingly encompassing other media, such as publishing and the internet, where it is often less obvious who owns what. We need to review the rules.
seek them haters out and take them for slander john and josie give a lot of love good honest couple
dont worry friends what comes to my mind is you reap what you sow john james and josie are growing stronger
Patrolling the murkier waters of the mainstream media
