Britain’s Got The Cheeky Monkeys

Not the Mirror’s editorial staff, who watch the ITV talent show so their readers don’t have to.

And today’s front-page telly news is that the Mirror has met up with the Cheeky Monkeys, a preteen dance double act, consisting of embryonic Sue Pollard clone Krista Hayatt, aged 9, and Charlie Dixon, a nine-year-old boy with a taste for Touche Eclat.

The age is all. If the Cheeky Monkeys were any older, they’d be sectioned. But they are very young, and so a hit with sweaty palmed men in caravan parks, mums and dads and the Mirror.

Pictured with their legs pulled up behind their little blonde heads, the Cheeky Monkeys resemble a pair of humanoid bookends from the very depths of Ikea hell.

But you have to like them because they are young, blond and cheeky little monkeys. You WILL like them, although not too much, and not in that way, even if they are performing their dance to Mika’s Lollypop song, the lyrics of which go:

Sucking too hard on your lollipop,
or love’s gonna get you down,
sucking too hard on your lollipop,
or love’s gonna get you down.

It’s not just good honest family entertainment – it’s front-page news…
