Street Fight

by | 27th, October 2005

‘AFTER the National TV Awards must come the National TV Awards party. And the Sun was there to see what occurred when “fuming” Coronation Street stars trotted up to London’s Funky Buddha nightclub.

A mouth as pretty as Charlotte’s head

Mortified at losing out on the best soap award to EastEnders, despite thrashing it in the “ratings war”, Corrie’s Jane Danson, Shobna Gulati and Kate Ford reacted badly.

An onlooker explains: “The Corrie lot just turned up to have their pictures taken and quickly left.” And..? Come on. We thought they were “fuming”. Surely there was a fight? No? Pah!

No wonder Corrie lost out to the London-based show. An angry EastEnders cast would have torched the place and murdered a barman in splendid revenge.

These Coronation Street stars came, sulked and left. But at least they did have their pictures taken. As did Bad Girls’ Nicola Stapleton, who can be seen falling out of her gold lame dress.

Nice try, Nicola. But we’ve seen so much flesh at these telly dos that there is the danger of us being a little tired of repeats. A brawl would have been better than a breast – even it had been just a few chucked buns or harsh words.

It’s a pity Cheryl Tweedy has not yet appeared in a soap – the Girls Aloud band member has a reputation for throwing her weight around.

Now, as the Sun says, Tweedy has moved on from rowing with toilet attendants and is taking on Charlotte Church.

As is the way with Iraq, ratings and bird flu, to the Sun’s jingoistic mind this is “war”. And the first volley has been lunched by Tweedy. As the pop strumpet says: “I don’t know who she and her scabby boyfriend think hey are. He’s a posing idiot who looks like a girl. And she’s not even gorgeous.”

He’s Gavin Henson, Welsh rugby’s bottle-tanned answer to David Beckham. And as for Church not being gorgeous, well, is there anything worse than that?

Tweedy thinks there is. “She’s a nasty little piece of work with a fat head.”

That’s a bit more like it. The Corrie babes could learn a lot from Tweedy. If you’re going to have fight, you need to have fighting talk.

And a decent script…’
