Westlife. All is forgiven

THERE hasn’t been much bad TV out of me lately.  Reason being, I’m just back from a trip to Japan.

Luckily, a late night flick around the channels granted me this clip which I carefully transported home with me on my flipcam.

Precious cargo indeed.

I don’t know how I got it through customs to be honest. I thought we were on high alert?

In photos – Denise Welsh beats off Frankie Cocozza to win Celebrity Big Brother

CELEBRITY Big Brother has been won by embarrassing, self-pitying mum Denise Welch, who beat off the challenge of bewilderingly untalented X Factor renegade Frankie Cocozza, likeable Welsh rugby player Gareth Thomas, a thong (?) of good looking women with only two settings – dull and disagreeable – Reservoir Dogs 2’s Michael Madsen, a desperate Natalie Cassidy and someone who isn’t Mark Wright from The Only Way Is Essex. All in all it was lots of telly with some terrific highlights that made us wonder why Channel 4 ever ditched it. Chuck in a bigger budget and the Big Brother could go on for ever….

National Television Awards 2012 – all the winners and photos

THE National Television Awards are presented by – literally – Dermot O’Leary a man so on-message he comes with an SMS  display inserted behind his eyeballs. The  NTAs are the populist awards voted by the real people (that may or may not be you) who prefer the Daily Mirror to the Guardian, Benidorm to the Dordoyne and think Jeremy Clarkson really should be the Prime Minister. Reality TV and soaps are the stars. Spotting the difference may be the most hollow debate since  heated discussion about whether Rebecca Loos was posher than Victoria Beckham. The other debate is Carol Vorderman’s eye. Do the breasts let you see it?

Celebrity Big Brother: Natalie Cassidy and Michael Madsen star in Reservoir Dogs 2

CELEBRITY Big Brother highlight of the night: Natalie Cassidy sucks up to Michael Madsen,the actor whose career walked out the Reservoir Dogs premiere and slipped on a banana skin, (Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home), skidded on a turd (Species 2), fell belly first off a high diving board (Kill Bill: Vol 2) and landed face first in a custard pie (Piranhaconda, which, like Reservoir Dogs, has yet to have a sequel). Says Cassidy:

“I’d like to do a gritty drama with you, Michael. You’ve not seen my body of work.”

A body of wok that includes: EastEnders, followed by (sliiiiiiip!) Celebrity Driving School, Eurovision: Making Your Mind Up, Natalie Cassidy’s Diet Secrets (Shhh!), Celebrity Mastermind and Strictly Come Dancing.
