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
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
Another update ASAP, keep on watchin' and don't
forget you can always e-mail the show on firstname.lastname@example.org
FA Diary: Wednesday 12 March,
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.
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
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!!!
Ooooh - nearly forgot. Don't miss the new Celeb
