Best In Shows

THE National Television Awards, rightly billed in the Mirror as the “telly Oscars”, occupy the Mirror’s front page.

The warning is of a “GLITZ ALERT!” And ready and willing to be bedazzled by the orangey glow we turn the page and note that Noel Edmonds and his Deal or No Deal show have won the award for Most Popular Daytime Programme.

In Oscar terms, this is right up there on the glitz-ometer with the Oscar for best technical lighting in a foreign language drama. And we applaud Noel long and loud into the night.

And we learn that Top Gear has scooped the gong for Most Popular Factual Programme. The show’s presenter Jeremy Clarkson has a few words for Richard Hammond, his co-host. Says Clarkson: “Richard knows we’ve won and he’s absolutely thrilled. Now he’s won he thinks he is Napoleon and can conquer all of Europe.”

In his weakened condition, Hammond may even think he looks good in a sky blue silk negligee. The telly awards are less about who wins what as who wear what, or wears the least.

And the Sun leads with a girl called “Emmerdale’s Roxanne”, who dressed in a sky blue silk negligee would not look out of place below a red light in downtown Bucarest.

Other soap babes line up to show that they are blessed with showbiz’s three Ts in abundance. They are all vying for our attention.

Perhaps one day of these fine actresses can be like Coronation Street “legend” Julie Goodyear and tell the world, via the Mirror’s pages: “The day I found out that Pat Phoenix didn’t like wearing knickers”.

It’s the dream…
