  • User AvatarJames { Like some others before me I have only just heard the sad news about Daniel. I’m a long term lurker on here, never posting, but enjoying immensely the analysis particularly around X Factor. I’ve just logged on to read the analysis of this year’s live shows for the first time in a year and read with huge sadness about Daniel no longer being with us. We never spoke but I feel I got to know him through reading his articles on here. I’m so so sorry about what happened. Daniel’s site kept many of us entertained and engaged. He and the forum for discussion he started will be much missed. } – 1 November 2019 at 12:07 am
  • User AvatarLinda { With Strictly starting last night I came back here and am so shocked and saddened to learn of Daniel's passing. I learned so much about how to read TV shows and media's manipulation of audiences from him and I loved reading this site weekly. Thank you for all the good times Daniel and Andrew. } – 22 September 2019 at 12:52 pm

  • User AvatarM8 { Spending the evening watching the festivities with family and friends, the way it should be I’ll be having one in your honour Daniel, in the pimp slot as suggested above. Hopefully you’ll be enjoying the night with all of us from the best view in the house! } – 18 May 2019 at 7:42 pm
  • User AvatarTpfkar { I came here today to express exactly that thought. Although I’ve always been into XFactor more than Eurovision, I haven’t really bothered following Eurovision at all this year. I just haven’t been able to get into it without the sofabet previews - with daniel at the heart of them. I’ve always thought that absence doesn’t make the heart grow fonder; it simply reveals how fond it always was. So Just one question for tonight: if we raise a glass for Sir Terry in song #9 when do we raise one for Daniel Gould? I think for me it has to be the pimp slot- he made it a ‘household’ expression and the ultimate sign of XF producer favour. The hours he’d put into analysing running orders were something else. So I’ll be toasting him during the final song tonight. Please feel free to join me, unless anyone can suggest a better song to choose. Best wishes to all } – 18 May 2019 at 4:39 pm
