Yes, telly viewers, ’tis Gareth Gates off-of Jordan, stuttering and Pop Idol.
Also doing the triple-sulko will be: Samantha ‘Smumba’ Mumba, Susanne Shaw (Hear’Say, Darren Day), lovely Saturday morning telly girl Sarah Greene, Aggie off-of How Dirty Is Underneath Your Bed, lantern-jawed tennisman Greg Rusedski, Michael Underwood who’s doing the ‘I’m a Celebrity…’ reporting on GMTV at the moment and, most excitingly – especially seeing as tight Lycra is involved – Tim Vincent. You know, the Blue Peter presenter, rumoured to be fragrant in the sexuality department and totally to die for.
But enough of that, let us tell you a funny story about when Samantha Mumba once came to the me-me-me office…
So, in she comes for an interview. Very lovely, funny, natural… haven’t got a word to say against her. Then, just as she’s about to go, she asks if she can use the me-me-me toilet, which, luckily, is clean and tidy. As we wave her off, someone nips in that loo behind her and there is the most enormous, unflushable bit of business.
To this day that sort of ‘survivor’ is referred to as a Mumba: as in, ‘Don’t go in there yet. I’m waiting for it to fill up again so I can deal with that Mumba.’
