She is good isn't she. Simon Bowel's comment about her last week, along the lines of "There's 2 things I love about you ... plus your singing" was a bit crap though don't you think?*

* I should explain that my kids watch X-Factor, not me.

Excuses excuses

When you ask your heroes for their autographs, do you always add, "It's for the kids, you know" ....????


You know when you get about ten days into the wall-to-wall World Cup and your football-hating other half admits defeat and decides to follow the team with the best-looking players..?

I watch it every Saturday and I even watch the Mon-Fri catch-up programs. And I voted to keep John Sergeant in just so I can continue my fantasy about the cute Russian girl. So there!

(Sometimes I need to watch some light-hearted tv as a respite from listening to fantastic music all weekend.)

Is this "Strictly Come Dancing" some kind of SM version of the Come Dancing my auntie Jean used to watch?

S&M with the Russian cutie who I have just discovered is called Kristina Rihanoff. Nice!

Q, E and indeed D.

Yes Joel, this is a variation on that programme, although if we explained it and went on to tell you that it's claimed to be the most-watched show in the world, you'd probably think we were making it up. I know Japan is famous for its extreme TV shows, but until you've seen an ex-rugby player doing the cha-cha-cha in tight trousers and a sequinned pink shirt, you don't really know the true meaning of pain and humiliation.

Not dis-similar to the average Salsa club night.
