I know I'm a bit late getting this post out.....for those waiting for it at 7pm well it's now 9.10pm oops but then I'm sure that people are not waiting by their pc's or phones in anticipation for me as I don't consider myself that huge yet.....notice I said YET!
I'm actually watching the BGT Final so I'm gonna bring the result as I'm putting this post together. I'll give you the SPOILER ALERT warning now. Until we get there. I do realise if you're reading this tomorrow or in a few months it's not going to have any excitement value at all but just humour me.
While we are waiting I will mention that I watched the final ever episode of Peter Kay's Car Share. Did we finally get the ending we all wanted? I know when the final series ended before there were numerous complaints and campaigns stating that he really couldn't leave it the way it was. This time I can say it was brilliant, so funny and I melted when they held hands at the end. Yes they seem as though they will live happily ever after....taking it slowly though eh?
It was the end of The Split this week too and I felt exhausted at the end of that. I have really enjoyed this series and I hope it does return. I thought Hannah surely would work it out with Nathan even though he totally lied about this dating thing. He did know that she wasn't being completely honest too about the Great Dane (Christie). Nathan did give her a kind of green card to go and find out what she really wanted. She popped off to Christie though didn't she? I think this leaves it well set up for another series and would like to know whether it works out with him. Hopefully we'll get to find out.
So who's going to win this Britain's Got Talent Final then? I'm never usually that bothered but it's got me this this year. There are a lot of good acts and I'm struggling to find a favourite. just as I think that I've made my mind up I go and change it again. I'm also thinking what would the Queen like? I love the comedian Micky P Kerr, Robert White and Lost Voice Guy, it's a brilliant year for comedy and it would be great to see the first win for a comedian.
I like the D-Day Darlings and they got me all emotional especially with the war veterans making an appearance....oh just beautiful.. I think if I keep mentioning all the acts I like I'll have probably mentioned them all. I'm not sure about the Diversity Juniors or DVJ, don't get me wrong they are brilliant but I just think we need something a bit more original. The Diversity thing has been done and not also sure it's fair on the other contestants but that's just my opinion..
Will it be the chap who balances the other chap on his head? OMG I think I stopped breathing with their performance, we don't want the Queen gasping for oxygen on her night out but they are very good.
Here we go.........The Result.........I honestly wouldn't mind any of them to win.........oh my favs are all going out.......looking good for Lost Voice Guy.........yay it's going to be a comedian......
The winner is..........LOST VOICE GUY!!! Well done........brilliant.
He so deserved that.........the Queen will love him I think.
Congratulations to the BBC for a great show.
Thank you for reading today........join me tomorrow for Music Monday. but for now take care.
I haven't actually watched a lot of tv this week I must admit. I've been too busy but I did catch a good chunk of The Chelsea Flower Show. It is one of my favourite times of the year and although I've never been to Chelsea I am kind of happy to skip the crowds and watch it on the telly.
As a florist myself I was pleased to see Mary Berry there picking up tips from Royal Wedding florist Philippa Craddock. I also liked the information she gave out on different flowers for wedding anniversaries. It was a great show, the Queen managed to hot foot it from the wedding to appear there and there were some very beautiful and inspirational gardens. I now look at mine and feel ashamed....happens every year. One year I feel I may have to go to Chelsea and then kidnap a great gardener to come and turn mine into something amazing.
My other great watch this week was A Very English Scandal. This is a drama starring Hugh Grant and Ben Whishaw and follows the Jeremy Thorpe scandal in which the MP was tried and acquitted for conspiring to murder his former lover Norman Scott. Poor Norman is not going to be silenced is he? He will not go quietly and that's a huge problem for Mr Thorpe. This is written by Russell T Davies who is also responsible for Doctor Who and Torchwood amongst many others and this has started off as a great drama. I'm looking forward to following the story further tonight at 9pm on BBC 1.
The Split continues to be one of the best dramas around at the moment. If you haven't watched it then go and play catch up on the BBC iplayer as it is brilliant. Nicola Walker is amazing and manages to put her talents to so many successful tv dramas and all with very different characters. Stephen Mangan is naughty liar in this and every relationship here is going through the mill but then it is a drama about family lawyers so what do we expect? Oh Hannah you may have to just fall into the arms of your dutch colleague......will she won't she? We'll have to wait and see.
Well that's it this week......I am catching up with Innocent on iplayer so I will review that next week. Be good to yourselves and have a great week. feel free to join me tomorrow for Music Monday.
