Celebrity UK Televison Snippits
As the Strictly Come Dancing controversy continues I see that in an online vote on the Sun website 77% of voters (when I looked today) say that John Sergeant should not have resigned. See also our post here.
I'm A Celebrity
While the television show I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here wasn't on ITV1, because of international football, two new contestants were moved into the jungle. They are David Van Day from the due Dollar and the irritating Timmy Mallett - remember Mallett's Mallet? Both desperately need a career boost.
Mallett has been sent in to wind up his other jungle mates. He said, "I’m aware I can be rather abrupt. I don’t suffer fools terribly easily. The discomfort of seeing this could be quite great." He's one annoying bloke. Photos etc on I'm A Celebrity unofficial blog.
Top of the Pops
The Christmas edition of the previously defunct Top of the Pops show is to go ahead. The BBC will broadcast two editions: one on Christmas Day and the other on New Year's Day. Simon Cowell has said that he would like to buy Top of the Pops and resurrect it on ITV.
The replacement for Fiona Phillips on GMTV has now been announced. It will be the Sky News presenter Emma Crosby. She said, "I am very excited to be joining Britain's leading breakfast programme and working alongside Kate Garraway, who is a great talent."
The Telegraph reports, "Jonathan Ross should never return to Radio 2, according to BBC staff and presenters who are angry about the damage that the 'Sachsgate' scandal has done to the station." Use Telegraph link to read the full story.
