I thought Phil and Kirsty's skills as live 'presenters' were non-existent.  Actually, it was pretty cringeworthy.
 

As for the chart itself, well, I guess it's hard to be objective when it comes to matters of 'best' and 'worst' because it's all down to personal preference.  I personally love urban areas but these are mostly seen as undesirable. 

 

Middlesbrough isn't all that bad...I've been there a few times and while the town itself is a bit run down, the people are some of the friendliest I've met in the UK.

This is just cheap TV and another example of continously bashing audiences with programmes that make them feel second-rate or dsicontent if they don't measure up.
 

I would like to see a programme that shows people how to be content with who they are, how they look, where they live and what their home is like.

i tend not to believe what shows like this have to say since they rated Weymouth (my home town) as the UK's worst place for youth related crime/violence. total bollocks.
I reject your reality and substitute my own.

Hmmm... it would be a very dull, short programme!
