I'm overjoyed Lynne and Cerys are still in.
The new evil one Marc Bannerman has been behaving oddly on itv2 I see, first telling strange jokes for no reason and then assaulting a toad with a mop...
Trial people today - Anna and Rodney.
"The gossip is it's all a set-up, that they (Marc and Sarah) agreed Marc would go in and flirt outrageously with someone."hmmmm .... not sure that his ashed-faced appearance for the tabs was put on, meself. In other news ...
- Ant 'n' Dec say Malc was scared "He changed his mind after seeing the medic, who briefed him on everything in the jungle. The medic tells you what to look out for and what is poisonous," Ant said. "Odd that he changed his mind after that."
- Right Said Fred moan about being too sexy for jungle
- Lynne's boyf gets cross about her editing
- Janice and Lynne demand mouthwash

B&TG gets better every week. This week, the makeovers! Whoo hoo bleurgh. Yes the geeks looked 'better' afterwards but they also looked like everyone else. Well except poor Mario for whom nothing was done as far as I can see, he looked worse 'after' than 'before'. I love Nate and Scooter and think they should have been left alone, beards and bermuda formal wear and all.
Wednesday, November 14, 2007
In other news... next weeks Beauty and the Geek is makeover time WOO. No one will scrub up as good as Wes did.

McLaren, 61, said he left the show because it was 'fake' and 'fixed'. The former Sex Pistols manager said: 'This is not a reality show, it's a fake. They know who's going to win and lose. There are about 550 people in the jungle. It might have been a jungle once upon a time, but now it's a film set' claims McLaren.
No! A reality teevee show more of a film set than a real jungle! Fixed by the producers! I'm sure poor Malcolm was shocked to his very soul by the very idea of media manipulation.
Meanwhile in the jungle, Anna R-R is crying already. Bless.

Cerys Matthews ~ YAY 'cited. Cerys to win Cerys to win Cerys to win Cerys to win
Gemma Atkinson ~ soapstar superstar
Janice Dickinson ~ YAY mad. Janice to come second
Jason "J" Brown ~ 5IVE
John Burton Race ~ tv cooking show type
Lynne Franks ~ ab fab type
Malcolm McLaren ~ malcolm mclaren type
Marc Bannerman ~ eastenders type
Rodney Marsh ~ football type
I'm sure there will be others coming later... *crosses everything for Biggins and Hopkins The Evil One.*
Thursday, November 08, 2007
- Anna Ryder Richardson: TV make-over expert, best known for her stint on BBC1's Changing Rooms.
- Gemma Atkinson: Bikini-friendly former Hollyoaks actress who takes on the mantle of this year's obligatory tabloid 'babe'; unsurprisingly used to illustrate most of the papers' coverage today.
- Rodney Marsh: Soccer star turned pundit; fired by Sky Sports after a "tasteless" on-air joke about the Asian tsunami.
- Koo Stark: Former girlfriend of Prince Andrew - one for the Daily Mail crowd.
- Malcolm McLaren: Punk impresario - this year's John Lydon.
- Janice Dickinson: Self-professed 'world's first supermodel', recently seen on America's Next Top Model and something on Living; unkindly described as "ageing" by the Mail this morning.
- Cerys Matthews: Former lead singer of Welsh band Catatonia.
- Marc Bannerman: You remember, he used to be in EastEnders as Gianni di Marco. Tastefully told the Mirror this morning that he had been "nibbling on his cat's bollocks" in preparation for eating kangaroos' testicles.
- Katie Hopkins: The Apprentice's superbitch.
- Jason 'J' Brown: Was in boyband 5ive, a late-90s popular beat combo.
- Christopher Biggins: professional panto artiste and former Rent-a-Ghost favourite.
- Richard and Fred Fairbrass: Lead singers in Right Said Fred, still big in Germany; prepare yourself for endless variations on the 'we are too sexy for this show' theme; being seen as one person by the programme, like Samanda were in Big Bro.
- Lynne Franks: PR guru and the alleged inspiration behind Ab Fab.
- John Burton Race: Who, you might ask? He is a Michelin-starred chef, apparently.
Christopher Biggins? Malcom McLaren??? Koo Stark should be good value.

He goes around in a black balaclava when he's about to perform, like something from the IRA, so he doesn't catch a cold."I hope Rhydian doesn't go out of the X Factor tonight he needs to stay for amusement.
Michael Barry says: "Rhydian told me they sent him an email telling him to arrive between 11am and 12pm - and sent everyone else one that said to arrive at 10am. Then they show him being told off for arriving late. It's a nasty way to treat a talented young man."That makes me laugh the thought they told Rhydian a different time so they could film him being late and arrogant.

OK yes so I know it's all in the edit and we don't even see the half of it. But why was it edited to make Jeremy and Jane look so bastard useless when they were The Chosen Ones? And indeed why bother to go through the whole of the last 8 weeks with challenges and such, when Raymond could've just decided in week 1, as his main criteria seems to have been who cooked the ponciest food. Yes he has chosen to go into business with a man who thinks cooking on the telly is scarier than fighting in Afghanistan.
I feel robbed.

Big Brother's been hijacked!
Many celebrities have caused chaos ON Big Brother, but in January 2008 - for the first time ever - a rogues gallery of stars, slebs and boffins will be seizing control to actually BECOME Big Brother.
From dictating tasks to interrogating inmates and controlling nominations the great, good and ghastly will be ripping up the rule book, holding rewards to ransom and generally creating mayhem alongside the REAL Big Brother in 'Big Brother: Celebrity Hijack.'
Their willing hostages? A houseful of Britain's most exceptional and extraordinary 18 to 21 year olds.
Over the next few weeks Big Brother will be combing the UK's hottest young artists, athletes, scientists, musicians, entrepreneurs, fashion gurus and dons in every other field to assemble a cast of pure prodigies.
If you're aged 18 to 21 and think you've got the talent it takes, make sure you come back here later this week for full details on how to apply.

Fabulous episode description from Gothamist (warning spoiler for dog episode in case you've recorded it). And Gothamist has this mouthwatering note ....
And next week is the episode where someone gets kicked out. There were suspicions that the designer would be booted because of some portfolio discrepancies, but based on the previews, which included Kayne saying, "I don't understand" what's going on and Robert replying that there are very strict/clear (we think) rules about what they can and cannot do. So it sounds more like the removed designer is doing drugs, sabotaging someone else or something along those lines.
Saturday, September 29, 2007
Liam looking like he is glad he was on BB this year and not a previous one...
I'm disappointed tonight that I have seen no one (Peter Brame) on X Factor from Fame Academy as rumoured. Nice to see that Ricardo is still being employed on shampoo ads though. They should get him on Celeb Scissorhands.

In better news I'm watching America's Top Model 8 on you tube. Happy days! I hope Runway comes back to Sky 3 soon two weeks off is bad.
Saturday, September 15, 2007
But but but, that said, Mr Mardy-Arse Jeremy and what-is-she-doing-with-him Jane should've gone, for Jeremy's abject failure to know what's in season, adapt to anything he doesn't like and being in a perpetual sulk. Oh and making shite food despite not even keeping to the rules. Most of all for Jane's enabling of Jeremy, it's like Sam and Jacqui, what is it with these women making so many excuses and trying to cover up and work around their partner's useless self-obsessed immaturity?
Oh and while we're complaining, why is Your Fried not on BBC iPlayer this week hmm hhmm hmmmmm bah.
Thursday, September 13, 2007
Dominic Littlewood from morning tv with the lovely Lilia.
Letitia Dean from Eastenders with the lovely Darren
Kelly Brook from being photographed in her underwear with Brendan. See what they've done there? Ha ha.
And the 'let's laugh at who they've put with Anton' this year goes to Kate Garraway. Just as long as they make it to a week where Anton gets to wear a catsuit I'll be happy (and pointing and laughing).
In my new favourites list comes Alesha Dixon with Matthew Cutler and Penny Lancaster-Stewart with Ian Waite.
I'd love Camilla to win this year she's with a young bloke (Gethin Jones from Blue Peter apparently) so there's a chance.
Gabby Logan and her husband are paired with James Jordan and his wife Ola. I don't like them two (J&O). Boo them. Boooooooo. I dislike Vincent (Stephanie Beacham omg I hope she hits him) and Flavia (Deano Wicks!) too. So hopefully none of them will win.
Ooh I'm excited.
Thursday, September 06, 2007
More at DS... Katie Hopkins (boo hiss hurrah) lined up perhaps for Cirque De Celebrité or IACGMOOH. I lasted all of 2 minutes watching Cirque De last series.
Jacqui: "We don't know about costing, food or service but we give great atmosphere."
Go Bolton, Martin and Emma are saved - tho no thanks to BadMans Tom and Nicola hogging all the ovens. Looking forward to another chance to laugh at Sam on the hilarious-named spin-off "You're fried" (geddit?).
In fact they should get their own jazz drumsticks shoved up their arse after last night's2 performance, where Sam was too busy getting his drum kit out to do any cooking (even if he could, which he can't) then blamed his chef-underling for the evening's disaster and sacked him. And and and flippin Jacqui, instead of telling him to pull himself together and stop pissing about, strokes his arm and his ego and mops his poor brow and tells him how brilliant he is, then turns up her perkiness to 11 in an effort to cover up the horribleness.
But instead of just chucking him off, Sam and Jacqui go into the challenge with 2 other couples, and probably they will survive because they make good telly whereas the Bolton couple are less photogenic and so will probably get closed. Bah bah bah.
1. as voiced by Edouard laPaglie - look at the front of his 'arse

Lee Ryan ~ Mad one from Blue
Barry McGuigan ~ Boxer bloke
Abigail Clancy ~ Abigail Clancy! Yay! Britain's Next Top Model loser/runner up and Scouse drug WAG. Will probably cook chunky chips.
Rosie Boycott ~ Newspaper journo type
Jim Davidson ~ Foul 'comedian'
'Challenge' Anneka Rice ~ Jumpsuits etc
Paul Young ~ Wasn't he on Celeb Masterchef?
Kelly LeBrock ~ Woman in red?
Brian Dowling ~ YAY! Will Narinda make an appearance to plug her book?
Obviously as a reality tv fan I'm happy there are two reality tv people in there.
In other news... I hate Rebecca from Britain's Next Top Model and was quite happy that Brian won BB. I was not happy that evil pig Liam came third. Urgh. I hope Monkety-Tunkety gets deals though...

I hate this week and all these twists just to get out who the people behind BB want out. They've just made it up as they went along, they haven't done what was announced on BBLB, they just changed it all.
By all this I mean SAVE TRACEY!
I'm not exactly believing this unbelievably contrived Liam and Amy thing. I hope she tells him to feck off and soon. Ziggy and Liam are the enemy they must be destroyed... mostly Liam, I'm trying to recruit for my anti Liam club.
Wednesday, August 01, 2007
In boring 'house not hair' news Liam is in the HWH/house next door as Shanessa (god help us) won the jack in the box task and is in the main house and she chose Liam to go next door.
Monday, July 30, 2007
Oh yeah Kara-Louise (the one that's not a glamour model or stripper) and David (the one that's Scottish) are now in the main house.
Sunday, July 29, 2007
The female house next door-ers aren't any improvement though. Sigh... no sign of Pete Burns or anyone from Castaway.
Ffs she's come out of the diary room................. oh she's forgotten something LEAVE ALREADY... Carole, Liam and Welsh newbie with odd name are talking about her and Gerry's crying etc and she's in the next room like she's back but she's not. LEAVE!
I can't believe she's still there even though she's left. Stop stalking us poor viewers and LEAVE!
Then she went again then came back... bored now. Channel 4 and digi spy both said she had left so it was official. I'm very annoyed.

RUMOURS that PETE BURNS is to be sent into the Big Brother house are circulating.Probably just a lovely rumour...
It is claimed that Pete — who starred in last year’s Celeb BB — has been in secret talks with producers.
There is also speculation that two new contestants will enter the house tonight. A Channel 4 spokeswoman said: “There’s nothing to report.

I hate BB twists that don't start right away. I already hate the woman involved just because she was on a programme called 'Balls of Steel' that sounds highly annoying.

become the show's creative director, coaching contestants in choreography and stylingaccording to bbc news.
So we're back to the Louis and Sharon show... grrreat. Of course this may all change in the next few days as Simon Cowell gets bored of Louis again.
We are thrilled to have Louis back to the X Factor," said Paul Jackson, ITV's Director of Entertainment and Comedy. Viewers will see the story unfold on screen when the series returns later in the year.
I can see it now, Simon looking sad and saying 'we've made a terrible mistake' just like he did with Ray on last years XF and those replacement acts on Britain's got talent.
In other news... BB was funny last night with Nicky and Charley competing over who could dress more slutty around Liam and this was after Liam saying he liked more aloof women. Michelle Bass would be more aloof compared to those two.
Thursday, June 21, 2007
Liam! He's been there 5 days, I feel sorry for the others who may have got the money on their 5th day but now they've been in the house weeks and they're all bored with each other so give the money to a newbie.
Liam! He'll probably win anyway. I can't believe anyone in the house really is meant to believe that there's now no prize money... anyway as all BB viewers and housemates know you can make more than that by appearing in the mags, well if you can take off your clothes or be in a 'relationship' with another housemate for a few months. Liam can do both of them so he didn't need the money.
I don't know who 'deserved' it, I would of given it to Tracey she could have financed her coach holidays to Amsterdam for the rest of her life with that.
Wednesday, June 20, 2007
Poor Gerry, his monkey was put in a condom last night... poor monkey. Chanelle's Betsy was as well but Betsy obviously enjoyed it as Chanelle wasn't upset (for once).

I need a warning for Britain's got talent if on turning over from Dr Who you are confronted by fake blood, as someone who has become the most squeamish person ever in the last few years I can't take such things. Worse was to come though... that child singing... she's on the front of the Sunday Mirror today! If she wins she is going to give her money away to African children... that opera bloke will have to come up with something to win over her.
A new BGT 'scandal' today. Fancy inviting a tabloid journo for a 'sordid sex session'. Tsk and all that. Anyway forget BGT I see a new show 'search for the next kit kat doll' it'd be a hit in my house.
Saturday, June 16, 2007
The others... Liam seems too normal for BB (which probably means as he's a bloke he'll win) and Jonathan seems too rich. I love the way people think him (Mr Moneybags) and Carole should get together, I bet he'd be very upset to hear that (his friend on Big Mouth said he'd be more interested in Charley, well duh). I liked the way Nikki (BB7 not BB8 one) kept slagging off Billi (the other newbie) on Big Mouth in front of his family and friends.
There are now too many people you just know there will be 5 left on the last night and it will be stupid and rushed, plus it will probably be 5 blinking men.
Poor mad Shabnam 80ish% vote that's not right.
The new ones are currently in the rainy garden seemingly (mostly no sound) practising YMCA for a task.
Britain's got talent is rubbish I am now watching a bit of it and it is bad. Mini musical singers and ghastly pre teen dancing. Urgh urgh urgh. Today I am mostly thinking about this . Both The Sun and The Mirror went with 'Britain's got pervert(s)'.
Friday, June 15, 2007

I'm not watching Britain's got talent it seems strange. It's a reality tv programme (sort of), people are talking about it and I'm not watching it. Hmmmmmm. Something is odd about that. It's no pussycat dolls.
I've decided who I hate the mostest, that would be Ziggy, actually I'm not keen on any of these men in the house (especially feckin Seany grr). Just rename it Big Sister and ban men I say. Me and Nicky would be happy then. You can tell Nicky used to be larger. Obsessed. With. Food.

Katie Hopkins, a contender on BBC One's The Apprentice, has been fired from her real job, her employer has confirmed.
The Met Office, where the 31-year-old worked as a brand consultant, said she failed to pass a probationary period.
... spokesman also denied reports that Katie was earning £90,000 as a brand manager for the organisation.
After bowing out of the contest, she sold her story to a Sunday newspaper, giving intimate details of her love life.
and why oh why oh why does the Met Office need a 'brand manager' at however may thousands a year? It's the Met Office, it does weather, as any fule kno. Do you get a better quality of weather if you order it from the Met Office?
Saturday, June 09, 2007
Seany 'are you ok'?
Ziggy 'no I'm straight'
Lesley has left the building (boo hiss). I'm quite annoyed and extremely unsurprised.
It is a bad day
But if Lee wins it will be as predictable as when Connie won. Actually I really don't care who wins I just wish it wasn't finishing.
Over on Grease... if evil Michelle wins I will be horrified. Oh how I hate David Ian, it's just like his support of Siobhan in how do you solve a problem like Maria? last time. A quick google tells me he has cast Siobhan in Grease... good grief will the evil never end? Funnily enough she's only in the rubbish role of 'straight-laced cheerleader Patty Simcox who has a crush on Danny' probably because she is rubbish.
Thursday, June 07, 2007
Anyways Sir A fired Lohit (mr dull) and Tre. Bah @ firing Tre, although he did make a bit of an arse of himself at the interviews, insisting he was a global business tycoon when it turns out he helps out in his dad's businesses and works out of his spare bedroom, sorry, his 'home office'. But I liked Tre, for all that he was a dreadful bullshitter.
And then there was Katie. Who had put on her application form, by way of evidence of her ruthlessness, that she had stolen someone else's husband. Who Sir A told was selected for the final, but then put her on the spot about whether she would actually move to London. And then she seemed to bottle it, as she had inexplicably failed to sort out how she would manage to do the job, before applying. Which seems to confirm Sir A''s suspicions that she wasn't in it for the job. If she really wanted to work for Sir A, surely as an alpha female she'd've got the practicalities of it all worked out before going on the show? Her subsequent appearance on You're Fired was vomit-inducing, as she turned up in a nice frock with her hair down and simpered her way thro, trying to overturn her previous image as posh arrogant snob. Well it didn't work hah. She said people stop her in the street to congratulate her. If I ever see her in the street, I will hope I have my trusty knitting needles to hand ...
So, a Simon & Kristina final. I don't like either of them (Simon a bit nice but dim, also a bit of a scary stalker when it comes to his encyclopedic Amstrad knowledge and Kristina's 'how dare you call me a feminist' reaction has never endeared me to her, nor the fact she is a professional pill pusher). But hey it beats the carp out of the racist-blonds fest over on C4.
Another vote bites the dust then...
How different from Shipwrecked where the stupid racist posh girl (thinks slaves are a good thing, sorry, thought slaves were a good thing, she changed her mind after being on the front of a tabloid) is up for Shipwrecker of the year! Did I hear wrong on Shipwrecked that the prize next year was 100 grand next year????
Emily Parr has been removed from the Big Brother house for using a racially offensive word to another housemate.
The 19-year-old from Bristol was taken out of the compound at 0330 BST and was forbidden from having any further contact with the 11 other contestants.
This week's eviction vote has been suspended, in which Emily was nominated along with Shabnam Paryani.

Shipwrecked still hasn't finished... Tiger Island's Ben Lunt was at the back of every shot (in the audience) of the judges on Grease Is The Word though (and Louis, Naomi and umm that other one) but mostly Ben Lunt and the amazing big hair he seems to have now.
Channel 4 has halved the cost of eviction voting for Big Brother and said it will not make any profit from phone services on this year's show, which begins tomorrow.From Media Guardian.
The cost of calls to vote for Big Brother evictions will drop from 50p to 25p and Channel 4 has axed text voting altogether.
A 10p donation to charity will be made for each vote cast, with the remaining charge covering the costs incurred by Channel 4 to administer the system.
Channel 4 said text voting had been axed because mobile phone operators cannot process SMS messages within a time frame suitable for the voting procedures on the programme.

Asia won Search for the next Pussycat Doll hurrah she beat nasty Melissa. Robyn said all 3 finalists were 'in touch with their inner Pussycat Doll'. As they seem to have spend most of the series forgetting to put their clothes on on top of their undies before going on stage, I fear we are all in danger of bing in touch with the finalists' inner pussycat dolls.
And talking of pussycats (heh did you see what I did there), George Galloway is reported to be the new BBBM presenter. This news makes me very happy, as it will help me stay away from the whole sordid BB8 mess this summer. Even better, Chris "where's the off button?" Moyles is going to be doing it later in the series. No BBBM for me this year.
Meanwhile, tabloids say:
YOU'RE SIRED! Apprentice blonde's passion for married man
Apprentice' star Tre advised to cheer up taking advice from Syed would be such a great career move
and big brother news is everywhere, but I can't be arsed.
Friday, May 25, 2007
Speaking of mad googly eyes, I'm now obsessed with Katie Hopkins from The Apprentice (Wed, 9pm, BBC1) - the bitchiest, most venomous contestant in the show's history. Apparently played by the old Spitting Image puppet of the Queen, wearing a blonde wig and glowing pale-blue contact lenses, Katie enjoys sticking the knife into her fellow contestants so much, she can't help smiling as she slags them off to camera. I can't help imagining if one of the others accidentally fell down the stairs, and lay at the bottom in a broken-necked comatose heap, she'd stand at the top grinning like a carnival mask and frantically rubbing her mimsy till the ambulance arrived. There's something unholy about her, like a possessed Ermintrude. Lord help Sir Alan if he finally decides to fire her. Her head'll start revolving and spewing green vomit. Here's hoping Nick Hewer carries a crucifix in his pocket.
Qu'es-ce que c'est le 'mimsy'?

Big Brother news: as the whole world knows by now, C4 and Enditol have been told off in a very stern voice over Shilpagate. I find the suggestion they might be forced to show Jade allegedly reciting an allegedly racist alleged limerick. Perhaps she could go back into hiding and maybe safe-house share with Katie?
Big Bro starts all over again next Weds. Say goodbye to your summer, indeed. I may have to go and spend a few weeks in a tent to avoid temptation.
Sunday, May 20, 2007
I'm hoping Big Al is voted off Castaway tonight I'm desperate to see how much weight he's lost and I have hated him ever since he said he was going to join the Tories when he leaves... nasty castaway Tory Clare recruiting on the BBC. Tut.
Daniel left ADWD/Joseph I was beyond happy to not have to see his smug smiley face again.
On Grease odd things are happening, swapping the couples around and them all being solo from now on. I want Alison and Kav to win but I smell a horrid Michelle conspiracy led by evil judge David Ian. Oh it annoys me that they split up Alison and
Over on everyone's favourite show (well it should be) Chelsea is in the final for the hunt for the next pussycat doll and on American Idol poor Melinda is out making way for tiresome beat boxing Blake and Jordin who spells her name funny.
Thursday, May 17, 2007
30th May apparently.
I'm more excited about who will 'win' (I have no idea what they win) Castaway. Joe Chicken, Young Al or lovely (ish) evil (ish) Jonathan? The even more exciting bit is when they get voted off and weighed that is my favourite bit.
Who will win Shipwrecked? and Shipwrecker of the year? Probably be Ben Lunt... I'd like Fiona to win something... anything. I read Louis is now dating Naomi I am shocked to my very core (whatever that means).

And hurrah also for young people's alcholic beverages - who knew VK had caffeine in till I couldn't sleep after drinking 4 bottles of the stuff down the student's union tonight? So I go up and yay a repeat of the Deadline final was on
Thursday, May 10, 2007
I had high hopes of Jadine at the beginning, things have gone quiet on the Jadine front lately which is hopefully a good sign that she'll come to the fore later on. I also like Tre. He's my kind of arrogant git (ie not posh and not sneering). Disappionted in Ghazal, she's a bit poor. At the start of the series Sir A warned them not to come out with the 'I'm like you Sir A, I'm just a poor boy from a poor family' line; now I think he should also warn them off the 'give me a chance Sir A, make me team leader line'. Someome spouts that in the board room every week.
Apprentice rules question: are they banned from looking stuff up on t'internet on their blackberries? That can be the only explanation for why no-one googled 'nigella seeds'.

Rubbish Gerri was unsurprisingly fired from the Apprentice this week. But stand by for another "do these people not watch the show?" moment as the girls (some of) decide to raise money by sellng
Deadline had a double sacking last week, maybe they will mirror the apprentice again with a blossoming romance this?
But JOSEPH JOSEPH JOSEPH or whatever it is called is the best thing ever. I'm fairly sure one of the curlies will win and probably Rob, I am fond of Seamus though as he is 35 and everyone seems to hate him. I like Keith too mostly as he works in Tesco with his Mam and girlfriend, which is slightly different to Rob (already working in musicals) and Seamus (asked to sing with Madonna at Live 8).
Other reality tee vee I am enjoying includes deadline (even though it is encouraging my Abi Titmuss love), shipwrecked (I'm looking forward to tonight's as it seems male Jo gets to visit the other island so hopefully more airtime for male Jo) and search for the next pussycat doll which is brilliant (the choreographer seems to be Just Jack from W&G).
And omg what is happening on castaway they are bullying my Jon.
Jonathan spends the next few hours watching Hassan as he struggles down the hill to Banishment Beach, passing commentary on his every move.That made me laugh. But all the camp have turned against him except young Al and maybe Joe Chicken. Ken went absolutely mental.
Hassan pushes doggedly through, spitting down at Jonathan, who has been sitting on the beach waiting.
"It has to go down as a classic moment in my life," Jonathan says.
Over on American idol Sanjaya was ace this week I couldn't stop smiling and sniggering, it was nice to see him actually be good again. I like this
Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton was asked during a WOKQ-FM radio call-in what could be done about American Idol finalist Sanjaya Malakar.How do you solve a problem like Sanjaya? I'd like that programme.

My not-gay son is now a big fan of the weekly Andrew LW advertorial that is Joseph. I am scared that we might have to go and see the flippin' show (on which I am word perfect, we did a performance of it at school).
The Apprentice of course rocks. Hurrah for Rory getting fired last week, I always particularly enjoy the posh ones getting shafted. Ifti had to go, too. I am liking Tre in a panto-villain way (and he does seem to do some work and get stuff done). I hope The Boring One doesn't win this year, whoever that may be (see "Saira was robbed by Tim" and "The Badger was robbed by Michelle"). So far Jadine is being shown as this year's "feisty woman who will get slagged off for being a pushy ball busting bitch" but tis early days yet.

The BBC is moving reality show Castaway from its Sunday night slot after ratings dropped to just 2.1 million.I don't mind the BBC1 show being broken up in to 3 in fact that's a good thing, but I don't want to lose the other two days shows if the BBC3 shows are scrapped altogether.
The hour-long programme has been going out weekly at 2100, but will now get three half-hour slots at 1900 on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday nights.
I'm really enjoying it, it is true I have a high threshold for people doing nothing as I watch a lot of reality tv but it's good if you watch it, especially the BBC3 shows which has 58,000 viewers apparently. I have no idea if that's bad, I mean, it's BBC3 home to all the quality 'ooh I'm too fat/ooh I'm too thin' shows. Castaway is a million times better than 'help my dog is as fat as me' and that's a fact!
I'm glad that Jason was voted off, I don't want anyone else to go though as it's meant to be castaway and not BB. Also Jonathan is reality tv gold.

A London Olympics hopeful, a bankrupt entrepreneur and a quantum physicist are among the fresh batch of contestants vying for a job with tycoon Sir Alan Sugar.From this is London.
Predictably I'm quite interested in
Natalie Wood, 29, who recently lost six stone on a WeightWatchers diet.
Also I'm amused she's called Natalie Wood.
SirAlan is still moaning on about people not being on the apprentice to become tv stars... umm it's a tv programme and now it's on BBC1 there will be even more tabloid interest plus the last one you chose you sacked or something. It's quite a lot about becoming famous-ish now I'd say.

Music mogul Louis Walsh will no longer act as a judge in the next series of The X Factor, ITV has announced.I'd be happier if Ben Shepard was leaving the ITV2 show. I don't really get the Kate hate, it's not like she's Davina or someone bad like that. I hope the new person won't be Cat or Fern.
The Irishman will continue to manage acts off-screen, while two new judges will join regulars Simon Cowell and Sharon Osbourne.
The show's host Kate Thornton is also being replaced and is moving on to present new programmes with ITV. A new category will be introduced to the show's revamped format, while the age limit will also be lowered.
A big urgh at the age limit being lowered. Hideous fourteen year olds? No ta.

From The Mirror.
ITV was last night bracing itself for a huge slump in income as all its money-spinning phone-ins were axed after a string of voting blunders and quiz show cons.I'm looking forward to DOI being decided by a raise of hands.
Today's editions of This Morning and Loose Women will have no telephone competitions and the screening of Saturday's semi-final of Dancing on Ice was plunged into doubt as bosses pulled the plug on polling lines.

Yay Emily still in DOI I know she's not that good but all those Richmond Hill viewers have phones. Also her partner is lovely. The lovely Daniel. Lovely. Duncan and Clare are quite evil.
I've seen two episodes of beauty and the geek and I am hooked. I was watching Shipwrecked's little brother (hutcam diaries) and it just came on. Oh dear. I'm in love with Josh. Oh dear. I'm quite astounded at the Wes makeover.
In other news: a new series of Castaway starts on Friday. OMG. I loved Castaway 1, so looking forward to it.

"If [Cat Deeley] wants to make huge sums of money in one of the few countries that didn't sign up to the trade agreement," he declared to reporters, "then she doesn't care about aid at all. Cat's turned her back on us. Good luck to her and her capitalism." ...
Assuming Patrick was not unveiling a hilarious new comedy character - a parody of a particularly slow-witted sixth-form activist - his position seems confusing. After all, in 2004, he filmed a pilot version of Deal or No Deal for the US network ABC, which announced the show would premiere in March of that year. Alas, the network decided to can it at the last minute - a merciful decision for Che Kielty, no doubt, and one which would ultimately free him up to focus on more ethically unimpeachable jobs such as presenting Celebrity Love Island.

BBCi gives fans watching on digital television the ultimate access to all the action from inside the Fame Academy from 7am to 1am every day, by pressing the red button.Oh good. I do like to watch 'celebs' eating their tea. I love FA it's like Big Brother and Pop Idol combined thus making it the best thing ever.
The celebrity students are:Rowland. Should be fun. Hopefully less naked than on 'trust me I'm a holiday rep'.

Wayne's effort was v. poor, more Primark than Fetish Wear Designer of the Year. Giles seems to be turning out to be a bit of stereotype homosexualist fashionista who doesn't like women. Poor Monika had a vile cold and got the wrong measurements so made a too small bra, but she still rocks and should've won. If she doesn't make the final it will be a travesty. Luke won the challenge, Fatz got chucked off, not surprising as her knicknacks were too small and her bra a bizarre shape. How on earth do you manage to cut your clothes too small to fit a catwalk model? And how come you don't leave a good margin just in case, like my mum taught me during her futile attempts to teach me dress making.
I suspect much toupe tape was used to keep those bras in place. You can tell my taste in unmentionables is more M&S than S&M by the fact that during the catwalk, I was most worried that the knickers they made were going to be scratchy and/or give the poor models thrush. Cotton gussets, people, cotton gussets.
Julien's hair is looking very fetching this series. Kelly should ask for the name of his stylist. And his colourist, I fear she's still letting Cousin Terry loose on hers.

ITV1 has confirmed that chef Marco Pierre White is to appear in the third series of Hell's Kitchen, which returns as part of the channel's summer line up.It's celebrities... are there any left?
The show, which will see White training a group celebrities in his kitchen, will air over a two-week period in the summer.
Over in American Idol land... sigh... Cat Deeley is still in the UK version only and apparently the bloke from an old UK boy band who didn't get through the last round was only shown here!!!!!!!! I want to see the proper American version ffs. If they want to encourage people to download it and not watch ITV1/2 then they are going the right way about it.

The forthcoming Dancing On Ice tour has been branded a "rip-off" by fans of the show.
A family of four will pay around £200 for their tickets - but will then be asked to spend extra cash by voting for their favourite couples via text message once they're inside.
One fan told the Daily Star Sunday: "It's a great family show but what normal family can afford all that? It's a total rip-off. And to get people to text when they are actually there really tops it off!"
From digi spy. Talking of dancing on ice. Kay Burley still in it. Bad bad bad.

Ooh pic of 'Jack'
He's actually called Chris Sligh.
My fave bit of AI so far I think is the person telling Simon Cowell to go back to France! Then when the presenter told her he was English she said he should go back to 'British'! Must be Danielle Lloyd's cousin or sumfink.

BB-ish news: I did enjoy seeing Danny Tourette being made an idiot of on Buzzcocks. He wouldn't know punk if Danbert Nobacon hit him over the head with a jug of water. Which I wish he would. Roll on next week's with Preston teehee.

"What is the world coming to" news: Shilpa to meet Queen and Tony Blair. Sense of Perspective, anyone?
Thursday, February 01, 2007
WHERE DOES this year’s unprecedented furore leave the future of Big Brother?
I’ve always said I’m not as keen on Celebrity Big Brother as I am on the real deal “commoners” BB. What started as a fun spin-off to raise money for charity has spiralled out of control and I wouldn’t mind one bit if it was ditched so all the focus could be on the summer show.
Since I’ve been doing this column I’ve had letters asking me why I bother with such “rubbish” as Big Brother but I honestly believe it has something to contribute about the way we work as people and society.
And I was tickled by Channel 4 TV chief Stuart Cosgrove’s comments that it should come to Scotland.
Brilliant concept. Bring it on.
There ain’t a format in the world that is so tired it can’t be jazzed up by putting a kilt on it!

Writer and broadcaster Janet Street Porter, TV presenter Gail Porter and comedian Sean Hughes have been given full access to working wards in Barnsley General Hospital to experience first-hand the daily challenges of being a National Health Service nurse. The celebrities will be taking part in this life-changing experience of operating as auxiliary nurses-in-training for two exhausting weeks at the hospital.FFS. If Janet SP had approached me with a camera crew while I was having my labour & caesarean section, I'd've told her to feck right off.
Janet Street Porter, known for her strong opinions on the NHS will be assisting expectant mothers, helping the midwives with births and c-sections in the maternity wing.
Oh yeah big brother etc etc. Shilpa won, Jade's had a breakdown and gone into the Priory, Jo says it's ruined her life and is being comforted by Fergie (!) and Danielle got dumped by Teddy and her modelling contracts.
Anyway we're so over that, now on to exciting news wot I heard on the wireless this morning: Celebrity Apprentice! With Jo Brand! Thank you tv deities for smiling on me.

Davina was a harsh one to Jo then. Shame Jade didn't get the same treatment. Or Grace. Or Lisa. Or any other of the many BB bullies but then the media didn't care about those ones as they weren't in the celeb version. Davina gets harsh when it hits BB in the pocket non shocker. Just one more day of Danielle on my tv. Hurrah. Good riddance.
In American Idol land someone called Sundance Head went through. That's a good name and he has a story, his Dad was a singer who was knocked off the number one spot by The Beatles. They also put through a bloke with a big beard and long hair who looked like a young Fidel Castro. Fun!

Shaun Williamson (it'll be like Night Fever all again)
That's all I know so far.
In BB news... voting cockup all votes cancelled open again tonight.

Cleo won Ian's treat;a donation to his chosen charity. You're in the BB house, ask for a giant inflatable dog or something a bit more interesting. At least get something you could share like chocolate.
Lucy is fresh from boarding school and has strong opinions on everything from nuclear war to cake decorating.I'm sure her parents are overjoyed she's the new Jade.
Describing herself as a "traditional girl" with "traditional values" the 18-year-old from York shocked fellow participants in the first show of the series by saying that black people were "like, really bad".Lorenzo is apparently one of the blokes who were thrown off Coach Trip last year for 'partying' in the early hours one morning. I remember that, Brendan was outraged!

No crowd tonight... booooooooooooooooooo! I think no booing and no crowd would upset Jade more than booing so maybe that's good. Just a shame Danielle won't be able to hear the boos. I blame Danielle for everything, she's just the most two faced person ever. In my humble opinion!
I dislike Jade Goody. I just know that if she was in the same room as me I'd have to leave. Why? because she's too stupid to know she's stupid. But some people obviously find something in her that's entertaining so they watch her.
The night her and her vacuous family were shoehorned into the BB house with Davina gurning and squeaking excitedly "Our Jade's back" was a sad TV moment. What ever happened to the BB I knew and loved. The social experiment. Putting strangers in a house together and watch them integrate? Celeb BB was fun. You can't keep on a front for days on end so we got to see something of the TRUE celeb personality. But we all know Jade's true persona. It's been there for all to see. It's not racism but ignorance.
I was however extremely disturbed to find one of my very own children siding initially with Jade and her 'Mean Girls' gang. She said "I hate Shilpa" Why? Only after a lot of heated discussion and questioning did I get out of her that she disliked her laugh and way she held herself. On careful examination of the whole affair she agreed that it was wrong to be so vehement about someone because of the way they walked, talked and laughed. When Shilpa cried she said "Cry me a river Shilpa" I was horrified. When someone cries we go to them, ask them what's wrong. Care about stuff and try to sort it out. I want to feel that I am a champion against injustice and my kids follow me. Stand up for the meek and mild. Be brave and bold and don't follow the crowd. It's been a learning curve and to her credit she now from her own free will and observation can see what went wrong and that the trio of Mean Girls really are just that... MEAN.
The BB house lacks back bone in any form. H from Steps can see what's wrong but can't do anything about it. Jermaine is a love poet of uselessness. Dirk doesn't really care. Wants to get home to his urinal. Cleo is really poor in my estimation. She quite obviously doesn't like Shilpa but she pretends to. She sits on the picket fence so tightly its a wonder she doesn't get splinters.
And the three mean girls have regressed to the age of 10 giggling and patting each other on the back for the 'clever' things they say.
Entertainment? Bring back Jackie Stallone.........
