Digital Spy: Anna Williamson's Showbiz Peek at the Week

By
Christmas cheer is in the air folks. This Morning looks like Santa's Grotto even with its very own red nosed reindeer Coleen Nolan (oh dear, never mind reindeer!), the Loose Women are gearing up for their annual knicker flashing, and even Katie Price and Peter Andre seem to have jumped on the season's greetings bandwagon with cryptic Twitter messages to each other.

Shame ol' Jeremy Clarkson had to spoil the Yule Tidings with his barrage of bilge on The One Show. And it didn't stop there. Now I love Jezza C, controversial and grumpy he may be, but I've always liked him in a 'Dad with a Saturday morning hangover' kind of way, but this week he has just gone one step too far. Some opinions really should never be vocalised, and as bad as the comments on the strikers were, the suicide accusations were just plain ignorant and cruel. Sensationalising for the sake of it; and I thought it stank. Come on Jezza, get back to being grumpy and teddy bear-like please and leave offending the majority of the country to perhaps after your book has sold out.



This week has been a telly marathon and we've been glued to the semis and finals of some of our most watched and adored shows. And Signed by Katie Price. I happened to stumble across this 'talent' show this week as the so called winner was being 'signed'. Now having met this bunch of girls and boys right at the beginning of the series, I can honestly say that they were actually most charming and naturally pretty/handsome. Seven weeks on and OMG, I seriously didn't recognise the eventual winner Amy (oh and HOW much faffing 'acting' in deciding by KP did that take!). This once very natural and beautiful young lady had been transformed by what appeared to be Danny Le Rue's styling team and was barely recognisable! Even though I'm still unsure as to what the show's 'prize' is - something about being a brand (hmm whatever) - I have to say, this Amy is charming, has a brain and could do a lot with her life. By all means milk the moment, but I pray that Katie does the right thing, realises from her own errors and doesn't ruin this girl. There's only room for one Jordan so leave it at that. Please.

Sad times in the Williamson household as my favourite show this season bid farewell for another year once again. I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! yet again promised to deliver, and with the 'fittest' final ever, they certainly didn't disappoint. Mark vs Dougie - thank you ITV for providing one for the ladies. It just wouldn't have been the same having Willie Carson's B-cups being flaunted in those final hours.

To a woman embarking on a pre-Christmas diet, watching Dougie and Mark gorge on their final meal was pure torture. Such was my jealousy at their committing carb-o-cide, I found myself doing the Homer Simpson drooling noise - with actual dribble.

Even though Dougie took the crown as jungle king, it's going to be Mark that'll truly clean up from his Oz adventure. With already a couple of high profile shows in the bag, we better prepare ourselves for a Mark Wright-dominated 2012. And you know what? I wish him nothing but the best. He's a doll - and that's something I honestly didn't think I'd be saying four weeks ago. That's showbiz, huh?

The X Factor 2011: Results Show 9
The X Factor finalists FINALLY being styled the way they should. No more random Kat Slater/Tinkerbell/S&M ensembles... just really flattering well put together looks. Hurrah!

Kelly Rowland's exposed body leaving nothing to the imagination during her performance... I'll be honest, I'm totally jealous *reaches for 5th jaffa cake*.

Chrissy and Fatima exposing themselves as the biggest Peter Andre fans ever (and seriously wishing he'd expose himself to them). Get a room ladies! Sarah Millican clearly taking up a residency on The Graham Norton Show - I wouldn't take holiday if I were you Graham... you know what'll happen!!

Seeing as it's Christmas, it would be rude if I didn't mention the fantastic Dame Edna who I'm working with at the moment. We're soon to open in panto in Wimbledon this week - eek! After a two-week rehearsal period, where I've fast developed incontinence due to the sheer laughter inflicted, this legend is fast becoming one of my most favourite people ever. If you haven't got tickets to come and see us, please do if you fancy some festive fun. Blatant plug I know, but if only to see the great Dame Edna in her first ever panto, it's worth the ticket price. Word of advice, just don't sit in the front row!
