In Pictures: The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile Is Golden

THE Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile, on Victoria Embankment in central London, was people running a mile for charity. This is the kind if distance Britain once ruled the world in. But Seb Coe now wears a suit and the Golden Mile is best left to such athletes as former Rolling Stones shagger Jo Wood, pro-am “Paki” dancer Anton Du Beke, Lyvita lady Fern Britton, Eddie Izzard, polo for commoners champion Jodie Kidd, F1 heiress Tamara Ecclestone, eyebrow wrangler Lizzie Cundy, sop actors from Emmerdale, Coronation Street, Hollyoaks and Eastenders and Mr “If he loses the electisn we are f*****” David Cameron.

No, not John Terry and Ashley Cole. It’s not that kind of sports relief. This is the day for those celebs who realise that marathons should be best left to Ethiopians and the Mile is what makes Great Britain Great…

Hollywoaks Removes Jamie Bulger Storyline

FOR those readers who recall when Madeleine McCann’s disappearance caused EastEnders and Coronation Street to rework plots and stand on a box to shout how much they cared for the child, Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks will not broadcast scenes that feature incidences similar to the James Bulger case.

The soap opera aimed at the hard of understanding, reality TV show bookers and men on registers who live in coastal caravan parks looking for bit of Sunday morning flesh thinks its viewers will take its plots for reality.

The plot was to feature two characters living under false names after bullying a child to death. But James Bulger’s mum complained, and production firm Lime Pictures “agreed to amend certain aspects of the storyline.”

X Factor In Pictures: Alexandra Burke Storms The EU

X FACTOR: Alexandra Burke, last year’s show winner, continues her scramble to climb as high up the EU Celebrity Mountain before the quota laws* kick in.

* Under EU law all EU members states are allowed only 5 celebrities. Alexandra Burke will never top the UK’s Noel Edmonds, Leona Lewis, Simon Cowell, anyone from Hollyoaks and Kerry Katona, and will be forced to emigrate to Austria and sing-off against the country’s fifth most popular Nazi.

In the meanwhile, Alexandra Burke performs on stage during the Little Noise Sessions at the Union Chapel in London. In pictures:

I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Sacks Katie Price

sam-foxTHE year is now divided into TV shows: And November means I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!, staring Katie Price in the sack and out of a bikini.

While the BBC’s care home-focused non-dancing dance show Strictly Come Dancing – does anyone allowed to operate the remote control watch it? – ITV follows the X Factor with another hit.

The show features the following celebrities, who would once have been called “personalities” and before that “VIPs”:

George Hamilton – Does the Hollywood legends know the sun cannot reach the jungle floor? Big risk that his tan might suffer. Expects a deep mahogany giving way to light maple as the show progresses.

The X Factor Fixed It For Me

6623193WE’RE down to the final…24 in the X Factor, the pro-longed advertorial for Simon’s Cowell’s School For Music (please, sir, can we have no more).

These are the final 24 – the last 24 people in the UK to have not appeared in the grand final of a reality TV singing contest.

But hold a moment. It seems that the X Factor is less a school than a borstal, a last chance for jobbing wannabes to hit the big time and enter decent society, or clinch a walk-on part in Hollyoaks and/or a stint holding their enlarged chests in a lads’ mag:

Stacey McClean – a former player with pro outfit S Club Juniors.
