Three ladies from the Jurassic era of lifestyle TV return

In 'From Boom to Bust', Trinny and Susannah stripped away the foundation to reveal their true inner selves

They always say that women over a certain age are, in televisual terms, extinct. Well, it seems that science is going to have to get back to the drawing board. Palaeontological reports are coming in from last night of strange terrestrial sightings - sightings of creatures whose skeletal remains were long since thought to be fossilising in the Jurassic substrata known as US cable. And not just one. People caught fleeting glimpses of the Trinnysaurus and the Susannadactyl while others say they saw a Nigellatops chomping greedily in her own pastures. But they can't quite be sure.

Long known for being mountainously rude to dumpy women in cheap clothes, they’ve now turned their guns on themselves

What a great review for boom to bust, the most stupid thing TV Executives have done yet. These sad Women need to get over themselves and give up. We are all over them.

It was funny and entertaining. I'd like to see more of it.

I hve never left comment on anything but this was rubbish and self indulgent. Channel 4 needs a new commissioning editor!

It seems to me these Women are coping two other Women who do a great budget styling show on P&O ferries and dress the unemployed for real with thier Hollywood Look For Less show I watched at Butlins last year. As far as I know they have been hoping to get channel 4 to do a docu-soap about the important work they do to help style the Nation. So sad TV always choose the fake when we all want the underdog to make it. Complete crap TV and I managed to watch only 10 mins before switching over.

I loved both of these shows. Trinny and Susannah were genuinely funny and deserve to be back on our screens. They are so much better than that Gok person. As for Nigella - food with sex appeal, what more could you want?

It is a shame they did not find a unique idea for the content instead of coping two normal women who work hard to help style the old, unemployed and those not so well off. It made me sick. The only good thing about this is they used thier own money to make fools of themselves. Bad TV you can tell by the fact no National media picked up on it. Alison
