The X Factor

Janet Devlin forgot her words on Saturday. The writing was on the wall after that, wasn’t it? I can really empathise with her. She’s only young, and singing live in front of millions of people must be a huge challenge BUT … a singer who forgets their words? A good voice and a good memory sort-of go hand-in-hand, don’t they? At this stage, any little mistake will be punished – unless you’re Misha B of course, who seems to be teflon-coated …

I did laugh at a tweet I saw on Saturday night. I thought I’d ‘favourite-d’ it but I hadn’t, so can’t remember exactly, but it sort-of said words to the effect of: “Shock horror. Marcus’s Sob Story considered SO bad it couldn’t be broadcast. That’s upstaged Misha B.”

Come on Little Mix, that’s what I say!

PS Marcus and Corrie’s David Platt: separated at birth?

MasterChef – The Professionals

Some good chefs this week, but I only whipped through it as I haven’t had a lot of time I’m afraid (click on This Week’s Complete Blog if you’re reading this from a link and want to know why).

Young Apprentice

Week 5: Deodorant; nice.

‘Raw’ sounded like meat, and the tube looked like (sorry!), a willy in the advert – all pink. At least they clearly showed the product in the ad though, unlike ‘Vanity’, which looked like something that had fallen out of a down-market Christmas Box Set.

Shark-repellent Bat-Spray - Young Apprentice - Jane Reynolds' weekly 'TV Times' review‘Your scent can change, but you don’t have to,’ their voice-over said. In other words, ‘Even if you spray our stuff under your armpits, you’ll still be the same geeky person.’ Not quite the right message, perhaps? When the dancing girl sprayed it across the room I had a flashback of the ‘Shark-repellent Bat Spray’ from the original Batman film of 1966.

In their pitch, Lizzie patronised the Executives by saying that they didn’t understand what it was like to be a teenager. Er, we’ve all been there love. Ooh, the arrogance of youth!

Harry H delivered a cracking pitch – as ever – and there was never any question as to who was going to win this task. Gbemi was fired because she was responsible for the design. She’s a designer. That doesn’t bode well for the future, does it? (Young Apprentice Ep 3 BBC1 9.00 pm Monday)

What else?

There’s something called ‘Money’ on this week. It’s the first of a three-part Series and it’s about how to get rich. I’ll be watching. I’ve tried every way; read every book; work seven days a week and I’m still poorer now than I was Twenty years ago so am very keen to know what else I can try!

(Money Episode 1 BBC2 9.00 pm Tuesday)

One of my Twitter followers @DundeeDelboy is on Come Dine With Me this Friday at 9.00. There’ll be a review here next week!

Radio Times

Jeremy Vine’s Radio 2 Series Sounds of the 20th Century is on 1985 this week. It’s the best thing ever on the radio. (See TV Times 30th October for a full review).
