Yesterday Theresa May shocked the press, members of the opposition and the general public by announcing she is calling for a general election to be held on 8th June 2017. In a televised speech she claimed she originally had no intention of doing so but certain circumstances had forced her hand. The fact The House of Lords has stated they will block any decisions the conservative government make over BREXIT, Jeremy Corbyn's constant knocking of her and anything and her handling of BREXIT and being slated by SNP's Nicola Sturgeon have all been factors in her decision. The Prime Minister... Continue reading

At the weekend millions of us tuned in to Britain's Got Talent 2017 on ITV and weren't disappointed. However many were disappointed at the word of 8year old comedian Ned Woodman. Cute 8 year old Ned Woodman looked like an angle but had the skills of a seasoned comedian that knocked presenters Ant and Dec plus judges Amanda Holden, Aleshia Dickson, David Walliams and Simon Cowell off their feet. He likened Amanda to a dog, poked fun at Aleshia's dancing, called Simon a cross dresser and asked who out of Ant and Dec was the funny one. While the audience... Continue reading

Last weekend The Voice Battles took center stage. Over two nights we saw Will I Am, Sir Tom Jones, Jennifer Hudson and Gavin Rossdale pit there team members against each other in order to weed out who wouldn't be going through to the next round, the Voice Knockouts. All four coaches were allowed one steal to create their perfect team. We witnessed some great duets and mostly saw the right artist go through to the knockout stage. We also saw some who thought they were certain of a place getting a reality check. Boastful Kit Rice was so adamant he... Continue reading

On Tuesday night Calum Best was evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house just three days shy of the final. Remaining house mates Bianca Gascoigne, Coleen Nolan, James Cosmo, Jedward, Kim Woodburn and Nicola McLean all face the public vote for the win. Kim Woodburn has played the game well switching being 'Mrs Doubtfire' and Cruella de Vil at the click of a finger. Her rants are random and exhausting but make avid viewing. Last night she stepped her game up another notch when we watched her calling Nicola and Bianca all the little bitches under the sun. She certainly... Continue reading

In a shocking eviction twist last night, Jamie O'Hara lost his place in the Celebrity Big Brother house. Having endured negative tweets, face to face nominations and a cringing court case the house mates were summoned back to court for one accused to be sentenced. Jamie was instructed to enter the dock and handcuffed for sentencing. Amidst gasps of disbelieve Jamie was informed viewers had been voting to save, he received the least votes and had therefore lost his place in the house. He left handcuffed and via the back door while his house love Bianca Gascoigne whittled on about... Continue reading

Jessica became the 7th house mate to leave the Celebrity Big Brother house on Friday night closely followed by Speidi's shock eviction.

Bianca, Calum, Coleen, James C, Jamie and Nicola all nominated Jedward and Kim. Kim Nominated Nicola and Jamie while Jedward also nominated Nicola McLean but then committed the cardinal sin of nominating Calum Best. Calum appeared visibly angry with the boys as they had tarnished his no nominations record. Calum turned from the level... Continue reading

Nomination, save and Joker cards were used to determine who would face the public vote this week. House mates took turns to choose a card which would tell them whether they'd be nominating or saving a fellow house mate. Choosing a Joker saw them having no say in the nomination process. Once nominated or saved, that house mate could not be chosen again. Speidi could not be nominated due to their eternal nomination while James Cosmo was safe due to his eternal immunity. Speidi nominated Kim Woodburn, Nicola chose Jedward, Jedward selected Bianca and Coleen Nolan nominated Jessica. These four... Continue reading

Stacy Francis was the sixth house mate to leave the Celebrity Big Brother house during last night's live show. She received a reasonable reception. It was revealed by Rylan Clarke on BBBOT last night that prior to Stacy's departure a bombshell had been dropped during an interview task. Apparently Bianca Gascoigne was ousted as having a secret boyfriend on the outside as Big Brother played a coded conversation between herself and Nicola McLean back in to the house. Awkward!! Jamie O'Hara was not impressed listening to Bianca's excuses. He stated 'You did say you were single though' and was forced... Continue reading

CBB Nominations have been played to the house mates so they know who has nominated them and why.

Having eternal nomination, Speidi will be joined by Kim Woodburn and Jedward who by far received the most nominations, Also up for the public vote are Coleen Nolan, Jamie O'Hara, Jessica Cunningham, Nicola McLean and Stacy Francis. On hearing each others nominations you would have thought tantrums and tears would have ensued but the only person to kick off was Nicola... Continue reading

During Friday nights live show, Chloe Ferry lost her place in the Celebrity Big Brother House. Once gone, Big Brother gathered the rest of the house mates in the task room to participate in a task that would open a huge can of worms. The house mates were asked to nominate one fellow house mate that would be immune from all following nominations. James Cosmo received the most nominations and was granted immunity taking him in to the CBB final. This blessing came with a curse as James was asked to pick who would receive eternal nomination. He chose Speidi... Continue reading

Even though we only see a small edited program of every 24 hours in the Celebrity Big Brother house, it does appear Kim Woodburn is content to be vile for no apparent reason. No one seems exempt from her nasty rantings. Her hatred towards Nicola McLean is dumb founding, with outburst's including name calling of vile, nasty, bitch, cow. According to Kim, Nicola is a Mafia boss and the other house mates do her bidding but we've seen nothing to back this up. Surely Big Brother wouldn't edit out Nicola holding the horses head would they? Known for being a... Continue reading

All hell let loose at the weekend in the Celebrity Big Brother house. Friday's eviction show saw Angie Best being the first eliminated by the public vote. Soon after Emma Willis entered the house proclaiming the weekend from hell had started. She introduced three new house mates in the form of How Clean Is Your House presenter Kim Woodburn, Geordie Shore's Chloe Ferry and ex Apprentice contestant Jessica Cunningham who carried a wreath of skulls. Introductions over, Emma asked the house mates to nominate who they thought was the dullest house mate. After a lot of jibes and taunting it... Continue reading

Two days ago we were informed by Rylan Clarke of Ray J's departure from the Big Brother house then last night the news that Brandon Block had walked was reported on BBBOTS. Big Brother has told us little more than Ray J has left due to medical reasons however, much has been reported in the press as to the reasons why. Ray J had been nursing tooth ache for three days in the house while producers allegedly did nothing. The pain eventually got too much and Ray J was taken out for treatment on a tooth abscess. This still doesn't... Continue reading

The Voice started it's voyage on ITV last Saturday night and despite reservations the format hadn't changed too much. We suspected grand entrances from the judges and contestants being subjected to critique that might put them off singing for life but there was none of that. The only things to have changed was Tom Jones firmly back in his seat, Jennifer Hudson and Gavin Rossdale have replaced Boy George and Paloma Faith and if nobody turned for an act, they would leave the stage having never looked the judges in the eye. Will I Am, as always, was on form... Continue reading

Celebrity Big Brother has kicked open it's doors for the 2017 extravaganza. The comic book themed house has said hello to 7 CBB All Stars consisting of former house mates and 7 New Stars. The All Stars happen to contain the vilest duo ever to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house, Spencer and Heidi Pratt. Some might say Pratt by name, pratt my nature! Speidi, as they are jointly know entered the house in 2013 along with Rylan Clarke, Razor Ruddock and Claire from Steps. The couple were obnoxious, self centred and seemed devoid of any human emotion when spreading... Continue reading

It has been reported that Will Young has quit Strictly due to personal reasons. The singer song writer who rose to fame after winning Pop Idol in February 2002 despite having a verbal altercation with judge Simon Cowell. On Saturday night Will danced a Bangla inspired Salsa choreographed by his Strictly professional partner Karen Clifton. Critiquing, Len Goodman questioned as to whether there was enough Salsa content to which Will disagreed stating there was plenty of traditional moves. Any avid watcher of Strictly will know you do not confront the judging panel, a fact that seemed to bypass Young. Len... Continue reading

Just 48 hours after Jason Burrill's shock win of the regular Big Brother, door have opened again to a new paint job and fifteen new house mates in the form of celebrities. (I use the word 'celebrities' very loosely about most but not all entrants.) At the age of 67 Biggins is the oldest celebrity BB house mate. If you're known by just one name no introduction is needed. Lovable Biggins is an avid fan of the show often appearing on BBBOTS so will already have a huge fan base. Ex apprentice candidate Saira Khan was second to enter the... Continue reading

It is rumoured Christopher Biggins has been offered £150.000 to enter Celebrity Big Brother. We all know he is a super fan of the program often sitting on the guest panel of BBBOTS. Biggins entered the jungle in 2007 and came out the winner so we all know he has the capacity to hold his own and do well. TOWIE's Lewis Bloor could enter BB as the modern day Lothario. Not much else to say apart from he will be mixing with some huge characters and could get swamped. Beth Chapman wife of Duane aka Dog the Bounty Hunter is... Continue reading

During a twisted carnival task Zoltar the fortune telling machine, told Andy and Jackson they were the most memorable house mates while Jayne and Jason found out they were the least happy. Zoltar next called Alex and Sam who have always been very popular in the house. This led Jackson to say, 'It's gonna be a good one.' Nothing could have been further from the truth as Zoltar informed them they were the least favourite house mates and would be evicted immediately. Shocked doesn't cover the out poor of emotion that ran through the Big Brother house. All house mates... Continue reading

Last night Sam Giffen had a difficult decision to make after winning 'Save and Replace' in a task. Horrified at the thought of doing so Sam went on to save Jayne Connery and replace her with Andy West saying he was going purely on Andy being immune from nomination during Big Brother Annihilation Week. Now Andy joins Laura Carter, Jason Burrill and Jackson Blyton for the public vote...one of which will be evicted. Laura was appalled with the fact Sam had not opted to save her. What makes her believe she is entitled to a place in the final above... Continue reading

The very last nominations for 2016 have been made and you just knew it wasn't going to be a simple case of going in the BB Diary room and giving them anonymously. Big Brother played all nominations back in to the house knowing full well paranoia would yet again ensue. Jason received five nominations but was most appalled at Jackson's. Laura got four and took her annoyance out on Sam for nominating her. Jackson received three while Jayne was nominated twice. Both Jackson and Jayne seem to take it in their stride. The above four were thought to be facing... Continue reading
