The Official Unofficial Podcast of Tumble on BBC One, Episode 2

Beth Tweddle on BBC One's Tumble episode 2


In the News

This week Jessica and Emma Bailey recap episode two of the BBC’s new show Tumble. We consider these important topics:

  • What time to arrive at the BBC One studio if you want to be in the live studio audience for Tumble.
  • Would the American post-Olympic tour benefit from hiring the Tumble creators?
  • The tear-jerking, beauty of the “Butterfly” performance by Beth Tweddle featuring some of our favorite junior elite gymnasts from the British squad.
  • Which gymnasts (hint, Simone Biles) should wear Lucy Mecklenburgh’s green leotard from this week’s show?
  • We speculate on the veracity of the incompetence demonstrated by the celebrities during their practices.
  • Does Sarah Harding have poor cardio or is she just unaware that her mouth is hanging open throughout her performance?
  • Claudia Fragapane gave great advice and the English champions from the commonwealth games
  • Was the romance storyline between Kristin Allen and Bobby Lockwood just a ruse to throw us off of the H Watkins and John Partridge, romance?
  • Natalia Ilienko shed tears after the show.
  • Determine that everything in life should come down to a “Vault Off”
  • Nadia’s triceps.
  • Alex cuts off Louis Smith and Jessica is enraged!
  • Is the quality of this show greatly improved because of the variety of professionals from different gymnastics disciplines: acrobatics, circus, artistic etc.
  • Two contestants were members of the Royal Ballet – not normal humans, these are super athletes.
  • We predict Amelle will be the last woman standing.
