When simon first took over i thought "oh blood.y hell" as he was a huge annoying prick on channel 4s pop thing, and im a big Mark Lamarr fan, but he gradually won me over and now i prefer it with him. simon and the rest of the panel knew she was high as a kite..Its a shame we dont get programmes like buzzcocks, mock the week, 8 out of 10cats etc on prime time on prime channels instead we have to go hunting for them at 11'oclock on bbcthree or something and they dont get the respect they deserve. No one in the general public knew she was on drugs at the time it was before it all hit the papers and she was still seen as someone to emulate. and the most telling part was him saying "this isnt a quiz show anymore its an intervention!This is a tumblr dedicated to the fantastic, hilarious, sarcastic, amazing wonder that goes by the name Simon Amstell.You probably won't see a lot of original posts on here, but I know from personal experience that it's nice to be able to click onto a tumblr, and find lots of relevant pictures all together in one place.Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... oh its been going for 13yrs which surprisd me They're both hysterical, such cutting wit ...Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. I wasn't sure when Simon took over, Mark had made the role his own and was so sharp I couldn't imagine anyone bettering him..." and her saying she was off to meet pete docherty after the show and simon saying "dont do it amy he wants to sell you drugs! He was hysterical and she just kept on laughing at him and asking for a drink... He made his name as an interviewer on some teen music programme, where he routinely ridiculed ego-inflated pop stars. Amstell dated Kele from Bloc Party for a few years.
While Simon struggles to make his mum realise that her new boyfriend Clive might not be the right man for her, Grandpa has discovered something that will leave Grandma in a panic.
On his comedy DVD, Amstell makes a comment that we should treat religious people who say "I'm christian/mormon/muslim/whatever" like a child who says "I'm a helicopter".
A pat on the head rather than a "how ridiculous" in reply.
Amstell, who devised Grandma’s House following his departure from Never Mind The Buzzcocks, has opened up about a kiss he shares in the first episode of its new series.
In it, Simon kisses actor Oliver Coopersmith, who plays Mark, a boy Simon spends the night with and later finds out is younger than he thought he was.
