Celebrity Big Brother is about half way through and it's been quite an interesting series. The favourites keep changing and we are seeing a different side to these celebs. Who might win?
Big Brother finished with Sam winning and the series with Dexter and Gina seems like a distance memory. CBB started on the 22nd of August and 13 housemates were put in the house. We have already seen Danielle (Her main issue was the fact nobody knew who she was!) and Ron (up against strong characters) be evicted from the show.
Newmarket Nights is a great idea for a fun trip out – an evening of horse racing followed by live music. When I saw The Kaiser Chiefs name crop up, I was drawn to the occasion. I’d seen them supporting Green Day at The Emirates a couple of months ago with my Kaiser mad cousin, and the fact is that lead singer Ricky Wilson is adorably crackers. As Yorkshire lasses we take clan pride in this nuttiness. It’s only a year since the People’s Republic of Yorkshire came tenth in the medal table at the Olympics. The fact is (puffed out chest) the Yorkies are good at stuff.
Big Brother has been an interesting and strange series with loads of twists and secrets and lies. Now with only 4 weeks to go, I take a look at who might be crowned victorious.
From fake housemate Michael to the secret house with Dexter and Gina, this series has been one to watch. I have enjoyed all the twists and turns and think it's got better as the weeks have gone by. With one of the potential favourites to win leaving this week with Sophie, Sam and Dan up for eviction, the final five is bound to have a couple of surprises.
Paul Liddell has become something of an international act. He is currently playing gigs in Germany and Belgium and recently crossed the pond to play in the USA. By all accounts it's going very well. Hardly surprising, given his reputation as a superb live musician and his absolute artistic integrity. I've seen him perform live just once when he supported Matt Cardle in Birmingham. It isn't nearly enough.
Paul has a new single coming out in early September. It's called THE ENDS OF THE EARTH and is his first with new label Regulus. He isn't one for mushy love songs, preferring to take a wry, yet entertaining look at what is happening around him and shine a spotlight on injustice and society's other ills.
When Matt Cardle wrote LOVING YOU, he intended to record it solo. That was before he ran into Melanie Chisholm at this year's Isle of Wight Festival and was struck by the notion that it could be tweaked to make a great duet. Melanie (Mel C. of Spice Girls fame) has duetted successfully before, most notably with Bryan Adams on their 1998 hit When You're Gone. She has a voice that lends itself to harmonies and the collaboration with Matt works extremely well.
Series 9 of The Apprentice has been a fun and interesting series with a bunch of clever candidates that have now been whittled down to 6. But which candidate will be Lord Sugar's business partner?
Lord Sugar along with Karren and Nick have been whittling down the candidates who have failed at different challenges. There has been some brilliant tasks this series including the dating website and the caravan task and the farm shops. A lot of the ladies went first and the last two weeks we have had big characters Jason and Alex leave who will be missed in the show.
Now we have 6 candidates who have all done well in different tasks and could all potentially get the 250,000 investment.
