Dire Summer Telly… Let’s BBQ a flock of sheep…..

Summer TV viewing can be pretty poor at the best of times, but promo ads for 2015 summer ‘entertainment’ aren’t making me want to sit inside watching the telly….. (other than the ‘Summer Fate’ promo for  Emmerdale, but that’s another story..)

Flockstars – celebrities teamed up with a trained sheepdog to “compete in a series of sheepdog trials testing skill, technique and discipline in a bid to win the coveted Flockstars’ shield.” Coveted????? COVETED?????

I admit to watching One Man and his Dog when I was a nipper, but this show leaves me uninspired. I expect they will have to introduce killing and cooking whatever the dogs round-up to keep viewers.

Which brings us neatly to B.B.Q. Champ – “A team of ten contenders from across the country will compete against each other to become the first BBQ Champ and while Myleene Klass hosts the series, Man vs Food star Adam Richman will judge, alongside British chef and restaurateur Mark Blatchford. ”

I love a BBQ myself… my ancient gas grill rusts happily in the garden awaiting it’s next outing, if the rain ever stops. But watching other people BBQ without the smells, camaraderie and a cold beer? Not for me I’m afraid. Perhaps it’s all a plan to make us turn off the TV and go outdoors.

I imagine this show will resort to Mylene Klass bikini shots like I’m a Celebrity to keep viewers interested.

Or here’s an idea….. maybe they’ll combine the shows and have bikini-clad celebs with sheepdogs catching food, which then they BBQ for Adam Richman to gorge on until he explodes.

Now that’s worth watching! Crack open a beer and fire up the barby!

On Emmerdale this Friday, May 9th

Hi folks! No updates for ages, but things are starting to pick up. I hope.

I have a brief visit to Emmerdale and The Woolpack on Friday playing an Elvis Stripper to entertain the hen party!!!! Don’t worry, you won’t see too much…. Me in a white jumpsuit is quite enough.
Just a short scene but hopefully memorable.

This isn’t my first Elvis. Far from it….. Here’s a couple of pics from my Live Bait Theatre days and the wonderful Elvis Presley is Alive and Well and living in Sackville by Charlie Rhindress
