X Factor: Manufacturing Frankie Cocozza Into A Shagger Not A Singer

X FACTOR wannabe Frankie Cocozza is “wooing” 16-year-old Amelia Lily. It has been decreed that Frankie is to be this season’s cheeky bad boy heart throb. He’s scored a part in the soap opera.

Yesterday a source for the ITV show told The People:

“Frankie and Amelia are an item it is early days but they are enjoying one another’s company a lot.”

But Amelia is off the show, so look out for Frankie moving on.

The Daily Mail adds:

News of the union comes just days after it emerged that Frankie enjoyed a late night romp in the house Jacuzzi with 26-year-old Kitty Brucknell.

Beavis And Butthead… They’re Back.

I AM the great Cornholio! I need T.P. for my bunghole! Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh. Hmm. Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh hmm hmm hmm.

Huh. Huh huh. Like shut up.

Anyone around the age of 30 will either find that hilarious or absolutely baffling. For the former, you’ll no doubt be aware of the fact that Beavis and Butthead are set to return to our screens and, from the teaser clip that’s been online for a while, it looks like it might be better than it ever was (with Mike Judge learning some real deal skills while making the wonderful, wonderful King Of The Hill).

Anyway, the new season starts October 27 on MTV and now there’s a proper trailer to whet our vile appetites. And it looks really, really great.

Did Phil Vickery Cook The Great British Bake Off Squirrel’s Root Vegetable?

THE final of BBC TV’s The Great British Bake Off featured the buccolic images of a squirrel with massive primary sexual characteristics. Not an endangered red squirrel, sadly, but one of this invasive American greys.

Intriguingly, while you saw X-rated family entertainment, another BBC cooking show spotted opportunity.

Who Wants To Have Dirty Sex With Amanda Knox? It’s A TV Debate

WHEN we told you that Matthew Wright was asking jobbing opinion experts on his The Wright Stuff TV show on Channel 5 if they would have sex with Amanda Knox – a woman whose life has been damanged by a wrongful conviction for murder – we did not tell you the results.

Wright says he likes “dirty girls” and would. Chris Biggins offered no firm decision. Kelly Hoppen said she hoped Knox would give any money earned from telling the story of how her life was undone to charity. (But anyone earning money from talking about Knox can spend it how they like.) And Liz McClarnon told us that she Botoxes to her armpits and would not have sex with Amanda Knox.

The X Factor: Satanism and Drug Animals

THIS year’s X Factor has been more a case of breaking up the commercials with as little actual programme as possible. This of course, means that we’re all in the mood for buying things rather than buying into the soap opera that is ostensibly WWE For Girls.

That’s not to say there haven’t been a whole heap of stories surrounding the contestants of the show.

For starters, it transpired that Lascel Wood had starred in a grot-flick and that Goldie Cheung was one big joke. And now, we’ve got an apparent anti-Satanist stance and mondo drug hoovering.

X Factor Victim Day: Luke Lukas Is Not Robbie Williams’ Son But Nu Vibe Might Be

THE X Factor leads the Sun’s news agenda, as it must on a Monday. News is that Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams are not cynical middle-aged stars using the X Factor to further their own careers as they snigger up their sleeves at hapless pop pretenders in a money-driven contest. They are in actual fact top blokes.

As we are told:

Why Goldie Cheung Left The X Factor: A Village Reacts

GOLDIE Cheung has left the X Factor. The Tina Turner / Yoko Ono hybrid has walked out on the show. This is the same Goldie who walked out on show last week. Back in September, the Daily Mail told us:

Goldie quits X Factor … for making fun of her and using her as a ‘joke act’

One week on and the Daily Star tells readers:

X FACTOR star Goldie Cheung today reveals the reason she will quit the show tonight – her love for her two young sons.

We hear form a “neighbour who lives close to Goldie, her husband David Webb, 52, and two sons aged eight and ten in Lathom, West Lancashire”. Can it be that Goldie is banned from talking to the media? And get a load of the language uses by this unnamed neighbour:

“Everyone has been wondering why she quit. There’s been a lot of speculation about it ever since it came out. But the truth is she just couldn’t bear to be away from her boys. It’s very rural and quiet here. Goldie is very down to earth, she does the school run, goes to the local shops and is a real bubbly character.”

Radio Presenter Mark Esterhuyse Signs Off With F*cking Outburst: Audio

INTRODUCING South African radio’s presenter Mark Esterhuysen. The 23-year-old on Talk Radio 702 Eyewitness News has been sacked for an on air rant in which he said the F-word 13 times in just 40 seconds.

The self-declared anarchist’s one-man argument referenced Julius Malema and the country’s right-wing Afrikaner AWB party, police, his blog and being stuck on the “graveyard shift”:

“Good morning, I’m Mark Esterhuysen. F*** racism.

“F*** the pigs who killed Andries Tatane. F*** the AWB. F*** racism. We are all wild animals meant to live free. F*** capitalism. F*** fascism. F*** this f***ing wage slavery graveyard shit. F*** domestication. F*** Malema. F*** the state. F*** the petrol economic growth on a finite planet. This is the only f***ing planet we have.”You can hear the incident here. Unsurprisingly contains NSFW language.Direct link.He added: ‘If you don’t agree with me please see my blog. Peace, love, respect, anarchy.’ Esterhuysen’s employers at the Johannesburg-based 702 Talk Radio station have confirmed he had been fired following the outburst.”

RIP David Croft: You Were Rarely Funny

RIP David CRoft. You wrote the sit-coms that marked time spent in front of the telly. You wrote You Rang, M’Lord?, Dad’s Army, Are You Being Served?,Grace and Favour, It Ain’t Half Hot Mum, Hi-de-Hi! and ‘Allo ‘Allo!. Anyone who has seen those shows will know that they were not always funny. In fact, they were rarely funny. Remove the exquisite Dads’ Army from the list and the show are forgettable mush of missable telly watched because there was nothing else on the magic box. If you stick anything on BBC 1 millions will tune in and zone out.

Croft’s skill was to create sympathetic characters and notice that a killer line is not a smug cue for the scene to end. The only current comedy show that comes close to Dad’s Army is The Inbetweeners, a look at adolescence through knowing eyes. Both shows are nostalgic and display warmth for the subjects.

NANCY Grace is no victim of nominative determinism.The US TV host is on Dancing With The Stars, showing her moves and boobs. Egads! What are the odds that her chest would fall out of her clothes on primetime telly?

The Orlando Sentinel describes Grace as someone who “will exploit anything for ratings — we’re talking slaughtered children, abused spouses, you name it… who has made an entire career out of turning other people’s tragedies into entertainment”.

Host Tom Bergeron quipped:

“On the European version that would be perfectly fine.”
