Anthea, 52, is said to have told a friend: “I’m devastated, but the support of Grant’s daughters is keeping me going.”

A source said: “She is going through a hellish time and keeps crying on the phone. She needs a bit of space to think and clear her head.”

Anthea Turner Meets The Fans One At A Time In Her Lemon Of A Show

FORMER GMTV and children’s programme Blue Peter presenter Anthea Turner was getting set to wow them in the aisles at a Preston, Lancashire, theatre next month. The gig attracted only two tickets sales by the start of last weekend and a “few” more went yesterday.

Grateful to the Lancashire Evening Post’s excellent Weird World for the pointer, writes Bat E Bird.

Anthea was said to be not too popular with GMTV co-presenter Eamonn Holmes, now Sky’s am anchor. Little Miss Tippy Toes springs to mind, adds AGW in the forums.

The Daily Express today confirms what we all knew, Anthea Turner, 49, does not have too many fans out there and is no longer a bums on seats attraction.

Her plan to tour with a one-woman stage show is down the toilet after dismal ticket sales.

Anthea, 49, a former Blue Peter and GMTV presenter, was to be the Perfect Housewife on stage. Cashing in, she hoped, on the TV show of the same name.

Two shows were planned , one in Preston and the other in Grantham, more would have followed if those had sold well. Only a handful of tickets at £16.50 went in Preston and the cut-price £12 tickets at Grantham have sold just over 40.

The shows were to include “10 things Anthea can do with a lemon” The first show was to have been tonight at Preston’s Charter Theatre. But a theatre spokesman said: “The ticket sales were terrible.”

Anthea’s agent said:

“The show has been postponed because Anthea has got involved with a North American TV show and had to fly out at short notice. It was not because of poor ticket sales.”

No, of course not. The North Americans in the far reaches of Canada needed a ray of sunshine. Or is Anthea off to crack the US? Well, how else do you follow Preston?

I’m A Celebrity Watch: Katie Price Is More Hated Than Baby P’s Mum

katie-price-dumps-alexI’M A Celebrity Watch: I’m A Celebrity’s Katie Price is hated by all, loved by Alex Reid, hated by the entire country and replaced by a bikini…

On last night post-Katie Price show, Anorak began Bikini Watch – keeping a tally of how it was before the big holes left by Katie Price and her Jordans were plugged with other contestants.

After 2.8 seconds, we saw Sabrina Washington in a bikini, followed five seconds later by soon-to-be-ejected Lucy Benjamin (get ‘em while you can), and 11 seconds later then we saw Stuart Manning with his chest out.

At the end of the show, having heard Katie’s flat drawl expwain mi weaons fur leeevin’ ther jungal, there was not enough to for Benjamin to say what a wicked time she’d had.

It’s a good fist at replacing Katie Price, but for the papers it is too little and to, well, little. Though no longer on I’m A Celebrity, Katie Price dominates the tabloid chatter. The news round up:

Peter Andre Heads Home To Australia

jungle-andre1LOOK out girls and gonads, Peter Andre is heading back into the ITV jungle studio, where the first laid hands on Katie Price.

The Star says:

“PETER Andre will make a sensational return to the I’m A Celebrity jungle to bury the ghosts of his past… He is determined that the jaunt Down Under will help mend his broken heart.”

Is this the same Peter Andre who has moved on? A source looks to set things straight:

“It’s going to be a ratings winner. The public loves Peter and they’d love nothing more than to see him back in the jungle.”

Indeed, sending Peter Andre back to a small brightly lit clearing in Australia is high on many music fans’ wish list. If we can achieve it with love, then let us do so. Peter, we love you. We really love you. We also love Noel Edmonds, Anthea Turner as we once loved Victoria Beckham and Madonna. Love is about letting go, Pete. That’s real love.

Talking Dirty Makes You Impotent

talking-dirty-makes-you-impotentGENNADY Cheurin of the Russian town of Yekaterinburg, research manager of the Center of Ecological Safety, says talking dirty leads to impotence.

Says he:

“Men were allowed to use these words only 16 days a year. Afterwards, it was strictly prohibited to use them. So whenever men use these sacred words for no reason in their daily life, this immediately leads to sexual dysfunctions, i.e. impotence. If a woman uses these words in her daily speech, she slowly begins transforming into a man.”

Osama bin Laden Mistaken At Airport For Russell Brand

AT Manchester airport, face-recognition machines are in operation.

The Telegraph has seen an internal email:

“Update on the calibration – the facial recognition booths are letting passengers through at 30%. Changes appear to have been made without any explanation [or] giving anyone a reason for the machines [creating] what is in effect a 70% error rate.

“[The fact that] the machines do not operate at 100% is unacceptable. In addition it would be interesting to know why the acceptance level has been allowed to decrease.”

Robbie Williams Is The Aliens’ Ambassador For Planet Earth

“TAAAAAAYYYYKE me to your leeed-der!” sing the aliens, having been taught the language by Robbie Williams.

With neither Barack Obama nor John McCain yet declared leader of the world, and the Labour Party with no fewer than 17 leaders at any one time, the aliens’ demand may spark as much confusion as it does dread and wonder.

But before the invasion, rich and single Robbie Williams needs to meet the space hoppers, which Michael C. Luckman, director of the New York Centre for Extraterrestrial Research, says might happen.
