Quotes of the Year

Here's what the stars had to say about the year in TV:

"Jordan's so desperate to be a pop star, but she needs to know it takes more than looking good" - Javine

"Little Britain. I love it. Matt or David? Ooh that's a difficult one. They're both great." - Amy Nuttall ( Chloe in Emmerdale)

"I love Extras. The one with Les Dennis was just hilarious. Little Britain is great too." - Kenzie
