Rob: It's a singing competition! You have to perform a popular song from your favourite band - and I'm going to win! Feifei: You? Are going to win? No offence, Rob, but I've heard your singing voice, and, well, I'm not sure... Rob: What are you trying to say, Feifei? Feifei: All I'm saying is that there is a fat chance of you winning the competition! Rob: Right! So first you make fun of my singing and now you're calling me fat! How cheeky! Feifei: No Rob, no. I'm not calling you fat - I'm saying that the likelihood of you winning the competition is very small. Rob: Oh right, yes. 'Fat chance' is an English phrase to say something is not very likely - I remember now. Feifei: Right, well while you calm down, let's hear some other examples of this phrase. A: I bought a lottery ticket for tonight's draw - and these are my lucky numbers! I'm definitely going to win! B: Fat chance! A: I hope it's warm this weekend - I want to go fishing. B: Well, fat chance of that. It's the middle of November! I auditioned for a role in a movie, but there is fat chance of me getting the role - I saw loads of famous actors auditioning too. Feifei: This is The English We Speak from BBC Learning English and we're talking about the phrase 'fat chance'. This is a noun phrase that means a small chance, or possibility, of something happening. It can be used in a full sentence, and also as a standalone phrase. For example, when Rob said he was going to win the competition, I could have just said 'fat chance'! Rob: Hey! I think I've got a really good chance! I've been practising hard and I've even taken a few lessons! Feifei: OK, Rob. Well... good luck? I suppose... Rob: Well, Feifei, when I win the £5000 prize money, there's fat chance of you getting any of it. Feifei: Wait, £5000? Rob, hold on! I didn't mean it! Thanks for joining us - I've got to go and apologise to Rob. Hopefully he'll share his winnings! Bye!
