Really going to miss Ed China, new guy is ok though. The mouthy shyster who runs the show is annoying as hell!

Funny that Edd left the show because velocity wanted to take out the workshop pieces but the first one was back to the old ways and no mike trying to fix things like in the last series. Hope Edd comes back with his own show.

I would agree, except in the case where the original designer asks you to do it. In that case I think it was a great idea. New guy aced it too, I like him as much as Ed.

Was expecting the show to be a Turd…….Ant is a different personality to Ed, BUT Props to him, I think they got rid of the wrong half of the old Duo…Should have Ant and Ed doing a show.
