BONG!....

Quote
Eurovision Song Contest organisers have named all the national jury members for this year's competition.

BONG!

Quote
The UK's five-strong panel will be headed up by TV vocal coach and former Fame Academy judge Carrie Grant.

BONG!

Quote
It also features soprano Laura Wright, music producer Steve Allen, DJ Candice McKenzie and writer/composer Gus Gowland.

BONG!

It is the first time jury members have been revealed ahead of the contest in a bid to create more transparency.


This is only news if Cary Grant is going to be a judge.

A bid to create more transparency in a competition that is famously (and rather refreshingly) biased.

Cary Grant would merely require some voodoo to be a judge. Barry Grant on the other hand...

No, because it's the BONG (Not News) thread, ergo almost nobody has heard of them apart from their friends and relatives (That's sort of the point).

There's actually a chance that Wow is more likely to have heard of the soprano and composer than many of us (I'm basing this entirely on the fact that he has a long beard and wears a Tilley Hat).

Katie Price has announced she is splitting up with her third husband Kieran Hayler after accusing him of having an affair.

The reality TV personality and model posted the news on her Twitter account.

"Sorry to say me and kieran are divorcing him and my best friend jane pountney bee having a full blown sexual affair for 7 months," she wrote.

A spokesperson for the star refused to comment on the story.

Refused to comment?  Katie Price?  That will be the fucking day.

I do feel quite sorry for her. She's six months pregnant and he's been shagging her oldest friend.

I don't like her, but I do feel quite sorry for her.

Bong! Stylishly-dressed, well-groomed and slightly camp man turns out to be gay.

Just a shame he felt he had to deny it for so long after being hounded by the press about it.

In other 'news', the cartoon Thor is to undergo gender reassignment. She will still be called Thor though, not 'Thoress' or 'Thorita'. Why do I have visions of Thora Hird soaring upwards on a Stannah stairlift in a horned helmet?
