TV Weekly: Ender The Dance for Cassidy

This week, a look ahead to some TV highlights including a royal affair on Channel 4, also a look at the queen of the ITV Celebrity Jungle – Kim Woodburn! And of course Natalie Cassidy is the latest to leave Strictly Come Dancing.

Described by one commentator on LBC as “A Bucket of KFC” the actress – soon to return to EastEnders – was the latest celebrity to leave the dancing competition. One LBC Listener also described her final dance as looking like a ‘Baby Hippo’ dancing around the stage..

Hollyoaks’ Ricky Whittle – surrounded by controversy (see further down TV Weekly for more on that) – who had been tipped to win the series was also in the ‘dance off’ – which surprised many. However his first performance was ‘poor’ and was seemingly saved by a better final re-dance. While some may suggest it was the public showing a lack of support due to his off-screen goings on, its more likely due to the lack of effort put in on the show in the original dances.

She’s A Celebrity – Keep Her In There!

If it wasn’t for Kim Woodburn this series of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! would have been a bit of a bore. As we’ve said in our reports earlier this week Kim has what the majority of the younger ‘television presenters’ lack these days – a personality.

Kim speaks her mind, is a little bit saucy, has no inhibitions and can laugh at herself. Isn’t that right luvvie? She thinks her hairdo is her trademark, it looks like a pineapple of course, and she doesn’t mind looking a bit rough on-screen. I’d love for Kim to win, she’s just what GMTV needs…

And Now The Bad News…

Reports reach us that one of the least liked faces on television – with so many faces you’d think one of them would be popular – Fiona Phillips is returning to a screen near you this Christmas on ITV. Thanks Channel Television, thanks a bunch…
