Tom Is Crowned King Of Strictly

Posted: 21 Dec 2008 03:33 AM CST

After last weeks voting blunder by the BBC, Tom was last night crowned King of the ballroom..

Following last weeks voting scandal that saw him scrape through, Tom Chambers, 31, won the dance off last night.

The former Holby City actor had been given the lowest score by the show's judges for his first two dances after being allowed through to the final after last week's fiasco.

In the final three with Rachel Stevens, 30, and Lisa Snowden, 36, Tom saved his best dance for the finale.

Making it to the final two with Rachel, Tom put on a show-stopping showdance which finally gave him the chance to be like Fred Astaire.

Judge Arlene Philips said “All I can say is WOW..you have the ease of Fred Astaire, the rhythm of Gene Kelly, the drive of Jeremy Clarkson and the posture of Daniel Craig walking out of the sea.”

Craig Revel-Horwood called the performance as “you are like Bisto gravy truly: you saved the best ’til last”.

Tom said to Camilla Dallerup after winning “Tonight is about you because you deserve this more than anyone”.

The show has been tinged with objections from many dance fans that this series is more of a popularity contest than a dance contest, fans have been simply voting for whom they prefer rather than the best dances as Tom showed last night with two mediocre performances early in the show, including one trip.

Premier League: Big Sam impact, but Adams and Zola in big trouble

Posted: 20 Dec 2008 04:14 PM CST

Saturday’s football results kept this season’s trend of topsy-turvy results going, as Sam Allardyce immediately set Blackburn away for their first win in a long time and will no doubt have the club’s relegation odds reversed before long. Villa maintained their Champions League aspirations at the expense of West Ham who are, along with Tony Adams’ rather shocking Portsmouth side, looking dangerously like a potential big-name casualty of the drop.

No word, though, on how Roy Keane feels about Sunderland’s big back-to-back wins so soon after his departure.

West Ham 0-1 Aston Villa: No luck for Hammers
Fulham 3-0 Middlesbro’: Murphy & Bullard star
Blackburn 3-0 Stoke City: Big Sam’s dream debut
Hull City 1-4 Sunderland: The Sbragia effect
Bolton 2-1 Portsmouth: Adams’ woe continues

Eurovision’s Not Ready for Risque, thinks Nortons

Posted: 20 Dec 2008 10:58 AM CST


New Irish commentator for the BBC to keep it clean in Moscow.

Having grown up with Terry Wogan as the Eurovision host, just as many thirty-somethings have, Graham Norton has talked about how he hopes to make his mark on the competition, but thinks he’ll be toning down his more risque style.

"”I imagine this year I won’t say very much because I don’t want to tread into Terry’s world too much,” he told the BBC Newsbeat team. “If I am lucky to do it again I might build my part.”

His Eurovision journey started this year as the host of the Eurovision Dance Contest in Glasgow, and will continue in the UK National Final where six contestants will face a public vote to decide who will represent the UK in Moscow when May 2009 arrives.

Sony To Take the Kink Out of the Home

PS3 Boss Looking To Tweak Human Nature.

Not strictly UK, but there’s a lot of interest in the PS3, and I couldn’t let this mis-quote from Sony Director John Koller go without a mention. He was asked about the harassment female avatars are reciving on the PS3 virtual world “Home” that users can live in.

Koller said Home is still in “open beta” and figuring out how to do moderation. “There’s still a few kinks to be worked out,” he said. “This is something we look to solve immediately.”

I think that the working out is something that human nature will continue to do!
