Glasgow band Attic Lights have updated the classic Dennis Waterman track "I Could Be So Good For You," and managed to avoid the pitfalls of making it sound like something from Little Britian. In the process we have a rather cheeky and bouncy cover version that we think will work great on Channel 5 when the new show airs, but it’s lost a certain amount of swagger and style in the process.
The new series will feature Shane Richie as Arthur’s nephew Archie, and Lex Shrapnel in the titular role, debuting during 2009.
In the meantime, this is the trick Channel 5 missed…

Coolio know’s what he is up to, as he confessed to LaToya Jackson. "If I’m not in the light, I jump into the f***ing light." The problem with this approach is while it might work on the more aggressive US Big Brother, that’s just not how we play cricket in this country.
The single line commentary from the Channel 4 highlights show that has been constantly repeated around The Dust’s offices sums it up…
While not up for eviction this week, a trip to the naughty spot must be on the cards, and an open nomination will seal his fate. Perhaps he’ll console himself with the news of Gangsta Paradise is on course for a return to the Top 40 this weekend, 14 years after its first release.

Budget superstore chain, Aldi, are launching budget holidays with four star accommodation
Aldi tomorrow will begin selling four-star holidays online which it claims will undercut rivals by up to 50 per cent. Aldi is planning to apply to the holiday market its cut-price approach to selling food, becoming the first supermarket chain in Britain to offer city breaks and beach vacations to cash-strapped consumers.
Paul Foley, managing director of Aldi UK said 2009 was the perfect time to launch discount vacations. "My belief is that people still want a holiday but will be more savvy and more likely to do research," he said.
"Everybody is considering what they spend on what and are right up for new ideas and probably Aldi in the UK is the most famous as it has ever been for value."
The first selection offered on the internet-only service includes city breaks in upmarket hotels in Prague for as little as £25 a night.
One week in a four-star hotel in Majorca for a family of four this summer costs just £1,409.
A bit of sun always helps cure those winter blues, fingers crossed the beaches won’t be as packed as that in the picture above..

A prison officer has been suspended after smuggling in McDonald's meals for inmates.Two prisoners were caught with Big Macs, medium fries and medium cokes. The prisoners - both convicted drug dealers - claimed an officer smuggled it in for them.
Belmarsh bosses are said to be furious that the food got in despite the jail in Woolwich, South East London, supposedly having Britain's tightest security.
The worry is if McDonald's meals can be sneaked into the prison, then what else has been? Burger King Whoppers, KFC bargain buckets or even..Sushi?

Sightings in Ireland of a mysterious lady has seen an influx of ghost hunters in the region of Co Tyrone.Over the past few weeks there have been many sightings of an apparition near the ruins of a remote farmhouse in near Coalisland in Co Tyrone.
Convoys of ghost hunters have flocked to the part of road where she was seen. The site has seen up to 60 cars parked on the side of the road at night.
Those who have spotted the ghost say it looks like an old woman with a sad expression.
Paranormal experts have set up thermal imaging cameras and high frequency voice recorders in the hope of verifying the sightings, which of course they will find the usual nothing.
Warren Coates, of the Northern Ireland Paranormal Research Association, said there has been a bit of previous:
“It related to a phantom female hitchhiker, who caused a stir five years ago,’ he said. ‘Drivers would see her on the side of the road with her thumb out. When they pulled up to offer her a lift, she would vanish. These sightings were about a mile away from the latest sightings.”
Desmond Donnelly, a Sinn Féin councillor, said: “At one point, there was a line of up to 60 cars on the road with people trying to spot it.
“If you ask me, it’s more likely to be a reflection of the moon on the river that flows through the area.”
All together now “Who ya gonna call….”
