Was just (half) listening to the Ken Bruce show when he abruptly threw the lady pop master contestant off and switched to a music track, Coming back on air he said that person was obviously not who they said they were or something?

Anyone hear what happened as I missed what the lady contestant had said ...

I heard that. No idea what happened. Did she swear?

Missed it too! Went out to get the post and bits and pieces after the first round. Came back and the second round was just starting, I thought it had been a long song in between!

Still there on iPLayer...laugh Nice put-down by Ken! I guess the research team found it less amusing.

I HEARD THIS AS I WAS DRIVING TODAY. QUICK EXPLANATION OF WHAT CAME OVER THE AIRWAVES: SECOND CONTESTANT ON POPMASTER. SHE SOUNDED...ER....VERY WELL SPOKEN AND ELDERLY! AFTER ESTABLISHING SHE WAS RETIRED SHE THEN WENT ONTO DESCRIBE HOW SHE SPENDS HER RETIREMENT.....PARACHUTING, DOING TANDEM SKYDIVES ETC. IT SOUNDED ABSOLUTELY GENUINE ACTUALLY. AFTER ALL THERE WAS A WOMAN ON MORNING TV LAST WEEK WHO WAS TELLING EVERYONE THIS IS WHAT SHE DID. ANYWAY, KEN BRUCE DIDN'T HANG ABOUT...HE STATED HE WAS ONLY INTERESTED IN HAVING GENUINE CONTESTANTS ON THE AIR, SAID 'ALL THE BEST' AND PROMPTLY CUT HER OFF!!
IT WAS HILARIOUS ACTUALLY. HE PLAYED A RECORD THEN FOUND ANOTHER CONTESTANT TO PLAY.

IT REALLY THREW HIM AS HE THEN MISCALCULATED THE SCORES OF THE CONTESTANTS, FORCED A TIE BREAKER, THEN HAD TO ADMIT ONE OF THE CONTESTANTS GOT A HIGHER SCORE ANYWAY AND SO A TIE BREAKER HADN'T BEEN NECESSARY!

SORRY YOU MISSED IT...HOPE MY EXPLANATION HELPS.

Just listened again. That was obviously a man. I'm just surprised he made it past the researchers in the first place!
Would have been interesting to find out what he would have said if they hadn't pulled the plug!
