Square Bashing

‘THE first visitors to David Ginola’s Priory Lite will no doubt be the cast of EastEnders fresh from their hammering at the hands of Coronation Street.

Breast Newcomers

The BBC soap won just one award last night at the TV Quick awards, while Corrie walked off with four including the title of Best Soap.

Shane Richie won the award for Best Soap Actor for his portrayal of Albert Square’s Alfie Moon, but Best Actress went to Tina O’Brien, Weatherfield’s Sarah Platt, and Corrie also won Best Newcomer and Best Storyline.

The Mirror says the judges’ decision is yet another blow to a series ‘already reeling from a ratings slump and criticised for dreary storylines’.

But awards ceremonies are like buses – and EastEnders will not have long to wait for the Inside Soap awards, at which (after a campaign of vote-rigging that would make even George Bush blush) it is expected to take away the top prize.

Anyway, we all know that it’s not the winning, it’s the turning up in a revealing dress and showing off your cleavage to the waiting cameras that counts.

And the winner is…Hell’s Kitchen Jennifer Ellison, whose barely covered breasts dominate the front page of both the Sun and the Star.’
