WHEN Iceland closed the air above the UK and Western Europe, birds sang and the skies were full of larks and emptiness. Then the skies reopened. The planes returned. and Ito World logged the changes in air space and created what looks like a sperm for each flight. Not much action over France and Spain but you get the idea…

Torvill and Dean’s Dancing On Ice Tour: Pictures And Pain

READY for Dancing on Ice, The Tour? Sorry. Ready for Torvill and Dean’s Dancing On Ice Tour? Dancing On Ice’s pro-celebrity ice dancing is the coldest show on the telly. It’s a soulless, frozen waste watched by people:

a) Who have mistaken it for proper ice dancing on Sky Sports 3

b) Tuning in to witness a celebrity decapitated

c) Fans of the celebs able to look past the eye-burning costumes and the doddering star moving with all the fluidity and grace of a constipated fridge to back their idol.

Britain’s Got Talent’s Christopher Stone: The Hairless Angel’s Sympathetic Back Story

CHRISTOPHER Stone is Britain Got Talent’s Hairless Angel, a singing “sensation” who the Sun says is the victim of bullying. Here’s Christopher’s sympathetic back story that will maybe see him pip Tia Brodie to the prize to sing for Her Majesty:

Says he:

“I was bullied from day one until the day I left. Day in, day out. It started off being physical and became mental afterwards – but the mental bullying was worse by far.

“Bruises heal but the pain from mental bullying doesn’t just go away.”

Stone is the singing accountant. He is also a product of Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester, where he studied after leaving the “atrocious” school in Harrogate, scene of so much bullying.

Britain’s Got Talent: The Spanking Shakespeare, Streaking Pig And Lady GaGa

IT’S Saturday. It’s Britain’s Got Talent. In tonight’s show a woman is spanked while reciting Shakespeare. It’s patriotic. It’s educational. It’s a short, sharp jolt. The Mirror calls it “astonishing”. It meant to say “ass-tonishing”. But the Mirror thinks Gordon Brown will win the election and might actually be astonished.

And there’s a Lady GaGa impersonator, and a pig. Make your own jokes. Any good gags and you might win the show…

As for the spanking bared bard, the Mail tells its readers – its readers! – the “act of spanking is more often known as a sexual fetish”. Whatdymean fetish? It’s bloody normal! It’s Great British spanking.


Picture 1 of 4

The Mail produces four images of the spanking for your disgust and digestion.

Adrian Chiles Loses £1Million On GMTV

ADRIAN Chiles has been robbed of £1milion. The bloke-next-door-styled TV diva has left the BBC under a cloud. The story goes that he had a hissy fit at talk of replacing him on The One Show’s Friday night slot with Chris Evans.

So, will it be the ordinary bloke who can read an autocue without laughing and mocking the content of the thing he’s trailing (now, John Craven visits a homophobic windmill in Stroud)  or the man whose TFI Friday show was a hit and who in his pomp enlivened a moribund telly schedule? Tough call.

Or is it? Chiles become the byword for early evening rebellion on the telly by wearing Frank Bough’s hairy knickers as a beard.

Britain’s Got Talent Is For Mum And Dad’s Dead Ambitions

BRITAIN’S Got Talent was once a simple contest. Monarchists vied to perform for the Queen. And we tuned in. Then Susan Boyle failed to win and everyone wanted to be like her and, er, not win the show. The latest talent to wear the mantle of “Boyle Wannabe” is
Chloe Hickinbottom.

Boyle. Hinkinsbottom. When Ivor Catheter get t he guts to sing, we’ll have a Dickensian Gang Show.

Having crooned and warbled her way through White Cliffs of Dover, the song made famous by Vera Lynn, and thereby secured the granny vote, Hinkinbottom says:

“Now I’ve got through I can show off my voice more… I’d really like to be a professional singer like Mariah Carey or Susan Boyle.”

Britain’s Got Talent: Tobias Mead’s Assault On Dance

CAN Chloe Hickinbottom (move over Humperdink) be this year’s Susan Boyle and come second in Britain’s Got Talent, beaten by a bunch of photogenic dances? The show that gives the biggest TV thumbs up to monarchy since Prince Edward played his joker (first price is a chance to perform for Her Maj at the Royal Variety Show) has also tossed up Tobias Mead. Toby will “BEAT HATE MOB”. So says the Daily Star.

How’s his background story coming along?

But an emotional Tobias revealed that just like Billy Elliot, he had to sacrifice a happy family life and a football career to pursue his dream of becoming a professional dancer – with his brother even threatening to beat him up.

Promising stuff. Says Tobias:

“My dancing basically ripped my family apart. It was the spark to a big flame that has meant I haven’t spoken to either of my two brothers since I was 18.”

Britain’s Got Talent: Before Hyping Chloe Hickinbottom Let’s Destroy Susan Boyle

THE fourth series of Britain’s Got Talent is upon us. Along with Harry Hill’s TV Burp and Curb Your Enthusiasm, it’s the best show on the box. But before the show, and ten-year-old Chloe Hickinbottom who croons Vera Lynn’s White Cliffs Of Dover, here’s a chance to cast more aspersions on the mental wellbeing of last year’s runner up Susan Boyle.

The media’s aim is to create a cautionary tale on the perils of fame. The media will build Boyle into a crescendo of pain.

The Express leads with news of “fears” for Boyle. The Sun also tells of “FEARS for SUSAN BOYLE’s fragile mental health”.

‘Emotional’ Susan Boyle ‘Enchanted’ By Man At Nice Airport
The Media Manipulates Images To Make Susan Boyle Look Weak Minded
Susan Boyle In Airport Rampage

SuBo was due to perform at the Logie Awards in Australia. But she pulled out “without explanation”. No word on why, then. So, let’s guess.

She has been plagued by problems since she came second in Britain’s Got Talent last year.

Problems such as being a hit and making lots of money?

The last time she was in the first class lounge she put on a weird show – polishing shoes and dancing with a mop at Heathrow airport in January. The land of the didgeridoo may have proved too tempting for the lass’s strange shenanigans.

She’s introduced herself to the media at large in traditional fashion. Cleaver was driving a Land Rover Freelander when she was pulled over by police less than a mile from her home in Northenden, Greater Manchester, in the early hours of Monday March 29.

Emma Chawner Is Back On The X Factor

EMMA Chawner, jobbing TV fatso and ridiculed X Factor loser, is spotted in the queue for the show’s Manchester auditions.

Says reader Bat E Bird: “And I’m sure she’ll win this time.”

That’s the spirit. And if she doesn’t win, then at least we all get to laugh at her. Although, thanks to Susan Boyle, who broke the grip of this sneering world”, Emma will not be mocked.
