Jake's Celebrity Fame Academy diary

FA Diary: Monday 10 March, 2003

What a weekend! As well as raising about £170,000 for Comic Relief we have lost a couple of great Fame Academy students!

First of all Saturday Show's Fearne was voted out by her fellow students after singing Travis' Driftwood on Saturday night.

We chatted to her on Sunday morning, and I got the impression that she had taken life in the Fame Academy as far as was possible! We all felt that Richard Park the Academy Headmaster was quite harsh with Fearne, saying that she wasn't quite up to the pace of the other students... but we were proud of her.

After chatting to Ms Cotton on the Sunday morning, I was back at the Academy in the evening to chat to expelled funny girl Jo Brand!

She was great value and I dare say quite chuffed to be out of the place because early the next morning, on a very cold Monday, England Rugby Star Lawrence Dallaglio arrived for a bit of a Tug-O-War competition with the remaining 6 students - we also grabbed a chat with him in the CBBC studio!

Big gossip Moment! Ulrika is a bit emotional at the mo, but enjoying the Academy experience, Doon and Ulrika have had a bit of tension between them, and Will is late to bed EVERY night!!!!!!

Another update ASAP, keep on watchin' and don't forget you can always e-mail the show on

FA Diary: Wednesday 12 March, 2003
Back at my flat, 2230

What day of the week is it again???

After a really busy few days full of live shows, probations, expulsions and not too much sleep we have lost a few more students - and my bearings.

John Thomson left on Monday night after an interesting few days at the Academy... beaten Ulrika on the student vote! Then, the following night, the Swede finally had to bid farewell to the teachers and fellow students.

Awh - consolation cuddle with Ulrika. See the latest pictures from the Academy

If I tell you that I proposed to her, gave her a flower, asked if she fancied me and checked her breath, then you will understand the kind of interview that we had on Tuesday evening!

As well as a bit of a chat, I can also exclusively reveal that I got her to sign a very special, limited edition RND03 towel - used exclusively by the students!

The great news is that we'll chuck it into the FA prize pile. Details of this new competition to win the towel coming soon!

Sad news - over the next few days we will be saying goodbye to a couple of other students in the run up to the big finale on Friday. I'll be live from the Comic Relief studio at BBC Television Centre on Friday afternoon...... with red hair!!!

Don't forget to keep on watching the show, click here to check the times. Today we were joined by Lamar and Tracy Beaker on CBBC... and if that kind of stuff isn't enough, then I was also gunged live on TV! So even if the singing is a bit ropey, at least see me make a fool out of myself for charity!!!

Later guys.

Ooooh - nearly forgot. Don't miss the new Celeb FA pictures you can download to your desktop.
