Mel B to clutter up X Factor on a permanent basis?

ANYONE who watched the X Factor over the weekend will still invariably be a ball of irritated tension after seeing Mel B bray her way through her awful, awful judging appearance.

Despite being a largely talentless boor (okay, she’s sold millions of records, but that doesn’t equate to any kind of ‘quality’ because, as the old adage goes, a million flies ’round shit can’t be wrong), she pooh-poohed, sneered, belittled and generally acted in a manner that one could only describe as cruel.

Woman falls through glass table (video)

THE kids are playing. Mum is grumbling. Mum is flogging snacks. (Typical!) Mum is falling face first into a glass table. Someone is filming it and giving out advice on preventing trips by tidying up – but not on looking where you’re going. You – you despicable so-and-so – might be sniggering:

After the Olympics tears, dama and talent the X Factor is disqualified

IS the X Factor suffering from the Olympics, where real jaw-dropping talent, high drama, great backstories and tears were in abundance? What can the X Factor do to make itself relevant? How can the scrap for phone votes and a contract to wipe your arse on Simon Cowell’s black toilet roll be portrayed as struggle when you’ve just a man with no legs run around an athletics track?

Well, this year wannabes can sing their own songs and even – get his – play instruments. Not autotune. Instruments. Things made from wood and brass. No, not Gary Barlow. Although if you blow into his left nostril while holding your thumb over his right ear he sounds like Kenneth Williams spotting Barbara Windsor’s washing line.

The producers could portray judge Mel B as a nasty cow, encouraging her to dish our pre-arranged Scary comments.

Or they try laughing. Harry Hill is writing a musical based on the show. It will have to be heavy on the funny, lampooning the self-serving, self-aggrandising, selfish judges and their pompous looks of cod shock and amazement.

Celebrity Big Brother: at last it’s back (launch night photos)

CHANNEL 4’s decision to get rid of Celebrity Big Brother seems ludicrous. Last night, C4 broadcast Superscrimpers: Waste Not, Want Not, a programme seen by 1.19m people. This was followed by 24 Hours in A&E (2.05m) and a truly pisspoor show called Sex Story: Fifty Shades of Grey (968k). Over on Five, the Big Brother launch was seen by 2.6m. Although 3.5 million saw the launch show last year, the figure are still decent. For all its up and downs, CBB is one of the best reality television shows ever.

It’s the show that gave us:
