I loved the show as a child and felt I could not do it justice.

Quite a nasty piece of work. Not the sort of person you'd want to have dinner with.

As I was leaving this morning, I said to myself 'the last thing you must do is forget your speech.' And sure enough, as I left the house this morning, the last thing I did was to forget my speech.

We are in the stickiest situation since sticky the stick insect got stuck on a sticky bun.

You're about as useful as a one-legged man at an arse kicking contest.
