Winner Takes All(en)?

Missed 'Lily Allen and Friends'? Regrettably not.

BBC3 - new look, new schedule. One headline-grabbing part of which is the aforementioned so-called chat show; could we have a new Parky for the MyFaceBebook generation? No, I'm sorry; it was utter shite. That's 42'25" of my life I will never get back. Apparently, ~50 audience members walked out of the recording - what, not all of them? Was there something wrong with their legs? Good grief.

Whilst I have previously admitted that she can just about hold a tune and, to be fair, does capture a certain element of the modern LDN zeitgeist, she's no Russell Harty. The most entertaining bit (and stay with me here) was when she asked her interviewee if he had ever thought of calling his child "Cuba Gooding Junior, Junior" and proceeded to get the giggles. Yes, that was the funniest bit. Please make it stop...

(On another note, in that ad up there for BBC iPlayer, hasn't she been Photoshopped to within an inch of an ungodly, if somewhat intriguing, liaison of Anna Friel and Natalie Imbruglia? Anyone? Bueller?)
