Lost in music with Bay DJ Darren Milby

IT seems everyone is talking about X Factor at the moment. I promised myself I would not watch it this year, but sadly it’s too late and I am addicted.
There are some big shocks this year after two of the favourites have been sent packing – cry baby Austin and Laura.
I am still amazed Daniel the old codger is still peddling the sympathy vote and managing to resist being slung out. The other one who annoys me is the gobby one Rachael who has a mouth like the Mersey Tunnel.
The big scandal this week was the fact that the only one with any real talent – 17 year old Diana Vickers, had to pull out of last Saturday’s show due to ill health.
The last time this happened on these reality shows was when roly poly Rik Waller had to pull out of Pop Idol because he had a throat problem.
He didn’t just miss one show, because he couldn’t perform on one live show he was disqualified from the entire competition. If I was him I would be a bit upset that Diana is allowed to continue in X Factor. Maybe they used it as an excuse to get rid of him to reduce the catering bill!
I loved the fact that Mariah Carey was a special guest and billed as some kind of superstar mentor to the finalists. Yet I felt her performance was not up to the same standard as most of the contestants.
Talking of reality TV, my favourite one returns this Sunday – I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. I don’t know why it brings me pleasure watching the rich and famous suffer in the jungle eating bugs and doing unpleasant bush tucker trials.
It’s always a surprise who is going in, but we heard a rumour that Simon Webb from boy band Blue will be in the jungle this time. Simon came to The Bay last year for an interview and was a really nice guy.
We gave away tickets to see him in concert and before the show he came and met our winners personally, so good luck Simon.
I was watching the football on the TV on Saturday and it was a surprise to see Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow in the crowd. I thought they did not get on.
As you can imagine this has started an abundance of rumours. Maybe Take That are looking for a support act for their new tour.
