Giving me the needle.

Byline: KEVIN O'SULLIVAN

The Great British Sewing Bee... the programme that changes lives. Yeah, right.

After too many weeks of unmitigated tedium, Claudia Winkleman's stupefying bore-athon suddenly had me in stitches.

So what have the contestants achieved since participating in the sizzling series that didn't grip the nation? Cliff has started a men's sewing circle. Simon has made a cap out of his own tweed. Julie has sewn her grandson some pyjamas. David has run up some curtains for a friend...

I'll have to stop there to calm down. But what a rollercoaster ride they've all been on!
