Well I finally caught up with it, yep I am going to admit that I have actually quite enjoyed Britain's Got Talent. It is funny and there is some great original acts which I love to see. there is also the 'oh my goodness, why did you even turn up' people but without them it wouldn't be such an entertaining show. they do more than I do anyway and actually give it a go.
There is also some great talent from outside of Britain. Now this used to be a bit of a grudge of mine because it's BRITAIN's got talent so why are people allowed to enter from other countries. Apparently they queue to do the British version as it's the best so I've had my mind changed on that one.
I'm glad because otherwise I wouldn't have witnessed the very eccentric and very funny......Neils Harder from Amsterdam who was an average magician really but it didn't really matter as his personality won him through. Big respect to Ant for volunteering to take part in his act, I'm not sure I would have felt so brave, but hey it's magic.
Issy Simpson, a cute 8 year old magician definitely put Simon in his place didn't she? A brilliant act and one that makes you wonder 'how did she do that?'
We also witnessed a beautiful dance/acrobat act from a lovely couple who had come over from China, just amazing!
Jonny Awsum, originally from Derby (had to mention that) was such a funny end to the auditions this week with his comedy musical act including Ant and Dec. I carried on singing that song for a while after.
I love the acts which you think are going to be rubbish and end up being the best. So I am hooked, I just hope the performing dogs stay away a little but I have to say the lady who showed us and the panel how to do 'Doga' did turn out quite funny in the end. I will keep watching I think, a converted viewer. I will not go back to X factor though.....never!!!
We saw the final ever episode of Broadchurch and I enjoyed this series, if I'm honest though wasn't totally blown away with the ending. It wasn't going to be anyone obvious but it didn't come as a great surprise either. I can't knock it though. It has been a brilliant drama to watch throughout and I personally think there was an opportunity for it to carry on really but obviously not and what do I know, I'm just a girl that drinks tea and talks about stuff all week.
I watched the great Billy Connolly in a lovely show called Billy Connolly and Me - A Celebration. It consisted of his classic work, some unseen footage and testimonies from some of his devoted fans. It was lovely to see which of his work had inspired people and had an effect on their lives. It's good to see he maintains a great sense of humour through his condition. I will always love Billy myself, he is just so funny and I have laughed till it has physically hurt. An amazing man and an inspiration to all.
Blimey Dennis Quaid was everywhere this week, I half expected him to just walk into my living room or look up at the breakfast table and see him munching on a bowl of coco pops. He was on the The One Show, The Nightly Show with Dermot O' Leary and with Chris Evans on Radio 2. Nice fella, not seen anything from him for a while and that's probably why he's been on everything, just in case we have forgotten who he is. Not sure about that Nightly Show, are you? It's shown late for some I suppose but it has had a different presenter every week, some being better than others but the jury's out on that one.
Hospital People was a new mock doc which started this week and is based around a hospital, obviously as the title says. A wide range of funny characters played by Tom Binns who also co writes the series as well. I'm chuckling which is a good sign but not belly laughing yet. I do love the porter Ian D Montfort who believes in psychic healing until he has to have a procedure himself, he tends to lose his psychic ability. These types of comedy shows do tend to just go very popular all of a sudden so watch this space, another one to watch. Will it turn out to be as popular as The Office?
Ah and lastly The Durrells has returned. A great start to the second series. I love this family and admire how Mrs Durrell copes with not only the kids but all these admirers. I know Spiro has lent her some rent but I wish someone would just donate a few tins of paint. I'm no decorator by any means but I'm thinking about nominating her for DIY SOS. It looks so beautiful though in Corfu and it's going to be fun to see them cope and hopefully make some cash, maybe not with catering though eh? Dodgy scotch eggs haven't gone down well. So glad it's back and can't wait for more.
Well done to everyone who ran in the London Marathon, you are amazing for such a massive physical achievement and also for raising money for charities you feel so passionate about. Congratulations, and I have a bubbly foot spa here if anyone wants to use it.
Thanks for reading and I will be back tomorrow for Music Monday tomorrow. Take care for now........
