“Celebrities” Dance For Sport Relief

Girls Aloud warbler Kimberley Walsh will be judging the prancing for Let’s Dance For Sport Relief this weekend, (presumably because Cheryl Cole. dare we say, soon to be Tweedy again) is in contract to ITV.

Walsh will be joined by cheeky northern comedians Paddy McGuinness (last seen up to his eyeballs in stilettos and fake tan on Take Me Out) and Jason Manford (last seen on…er… 8 Out Of 10 Cats).

A motley crew of other “stars? desperate for more exposure include Steve Jones and Claudia Winkleman, Katy Brand, Rufus Hound (who looks like a thin version of the Street Fighter 4 character Rufus incidentally), Linda Robson, Lesley Joseph and Willie Thorne (yes snooker player Willie Thorne).

Flying the flag for twinkle-toed hospital stars and Rosie Marcel and Luke Roberts from Holby City and Charles Dale, Tony Marshall and Ben Turner from Casualty. Yeah, I’d not heard of any of them either.

Probably likely to be more successful because of their Olympic backgrounds are Mark Foster, Iwan Thomas, Leon Taylor, Dalton Grant, Heather fell and Jamie Baulch. Sam and Mark (remember them from Pop Idol Season 2? Me neither) are down to perform.

Those expecting a bit of an Angela Rippon moment won’t find it with news presenters Matt Barbet, Ellie Crisell and Louise Minchin. Damn it, I want Trevor MacDonald and Paxman, not a Channel Five presenter and some BBC News Channel nobodies.

Oh yeah, and there’ll be darts players Bobby George and Tony O’Shea who’ll be doing more exercise this weekend than they’ve ever done in their lives.

Shaping up to be a pretty dire evening. Brace yourselves.
