Last week saw the start of the new drama Mrs Wilson. This is based on true events which follow the life of Alison Wilson who uncovers many secrets about her husband after his death. Wife's keep popping up all over the place and Alison feels she has got to get to the bottom of this mysterious life her husbands seems to have living, unknown to her.
Alison Wilson is played by her granddaughter Ruth Wilson whom you may recognise from dramas such as The Affair and Luther. I watched her being interviewed by Graham Norton where she discussed the awkwardness of watching this with her father. She said how she felt a little embarrassed that in the series she would actually being filming scenes where she would be giving birth to her own father so that's a slightly different thing to talk about around the dinner table eh?
I think she's great though in this and who else could tell the tale, she is perfect for it especially with that inside knowledge of her own family. It has three parts and the second part airs this Tuesday on BBC1 at 9pm. You can catch up on the BBC iplayer. It is definitely worth a watch.
Malique was the second celebrity to leave the jungle tonight after Noel Edmonds also got kicked off. I feel Noel was a loss really, I found him really entertaining so I was sorry to see him go. I don't really like seeing anyone go in this series as they are all really lovely and I think they have bonded well.
Malique and Noel did well in their trials, really brave so they can be very proud of themselves. Who will be next? Poor John Barryman has had a fall and a trip to the hospital but I believe his is ok and due to return so that will be good. I wonder if he has a song for when he comes back in, might not feel up to it but I struggle to think that anything would keep that man down.
I think Holly has really settled in to that presenters job, I'm actually loving her and Dec together, bit of a refreshing change. Maybe it will have to be Ant, Dec and Holly next year. I do like a laugh and this gives me quite a few every evening. Great series.
Oh my blood was boiling a little at Strictly tonight. The public obviously want Ashley out and the judges are keeping her in. Anyone who comes up against her and Pasha in the dance off now will be going until it gets to a public vote. She is great but she is a professional dancer which the public are protesting about now. Not sure why they bother even having a dance off as it's going to be so predictable. The judges can't let them go because they are good dancers so it's a stale mate situation really and won't be solved until the final.
The other thing with Strictly that drives me mad is the fact that they need a change of presenter. I never liked watching Strictly before and I think I've worked out why. Tess, for me is a bit over the top. I know she teamed well with Brucey and yes I think they did work well together but please BBC next series can we have a change?
Right that' me needing a brew to calm down. I will be back for Music Monday tomorrow so until then you all take care.
