THE listing for C4's Britain's Most Luxurious Hotels on Sunday said it would feature Amanda Holden and Chris Evans.

So imagine my concern when it opened with a hotel worker promising: "You will see the celebrity that everyone wants to see, in their underwear at breakfast."

Thankfully, it turned out he'd been speaking generally, not specifically. In fact, Chris only popped by to give Chewton Glen's sommelier a PS7000 bottle of wine to try.

As for Amanda, we were told she had been invited to be the VIP guest of honour at the hotel's Halloween party.

At first I thought that was a bit harsh. Then I remembered Amanda has spent the past 14 years cackling like a witch on Britain's Got Talent.

That kind of misunderstanding was bound to happen one day.

Clarification: Charles and the Women Who Could Have Been Queen is just another royal documentary from Channel 5.

And not, as I'd first hoped, a recently discovered Roald Dahl follow-up.

A FEW weeks ago I suggested the main problem with This Time with Alan Partridge was that Alan's odd little ways and brainfart outbursts were no longer unusual or shocking in the modern TV landscape.

As such, I am indebted to Richard "The dog has to die" Madeley for ramming that point home during his most recent shifts on Good Morning Britain.

It's a mesmerising spectacle, outdone only by a new Monday to Wednesday sideshow I'm calling The Many Exasperations of Susanna Reid.

Poor Susanna. Her new work motto must surely be "Goodbye frying pan, hello fire".
