MANY excitable holidaymakers; THE TOP TV TOPICS with paddy shennan, the man with the remote.

Byline: paddy shennan

MANY excitable holidaymakers can resist everything except temptation - especially temptation which comes in bottles, cans and beer pumps.

Panorama: Plane Drunk (BBC1, Monday) said arrests of passengers suspected of being drunk at UK airports and on flights have risen by 50% in a year.

And reporter Tina Daheley didn't have to look too hard to find evidence of temptation - and people giving in to it. She arrived at Gatwick at 6am for a flight to Barcelona, and found the pubs open and many people boozing before breakfast. And the VIP lounges? They're open as early as 4am and you can help yourself to alcohol. I know there is such a thing as responsible drinking, but shouldn't there be less temptation put in front of us?
