Did anyone have the misfortune to watch last night's All Star Impression Show on ITV1? You had to see it to believe it - car crash tv which was so breathtakingly bad it needs to join the Sam Fox / Mick Fleetwood hosting the Brit Awards Hall of Fame. ITV have had their arses whipped big style this christmas by the BBC's scheduling of EastEnders, Gavin and Stacey, The Royal Family to name but a few. With the exception of Coronation Street and Harry Hill's TV Burp, ITV have got it very wrong with their christmas scheduling, especially showing something of this ineptitude on primetime tv Boxing Day night. Hosted by Stephen Mulhern, we were introduced to various 'celebs' impersonating other 'celebs'. Claire Sweeney, star of 60 Minute Makeover and Park Hampers adverts staggered on and 'impersonated' Stacey Soloman. Who? Oh yeah, the girl that came 3rd on the X Factor. Someone called Steve Riks (?) gave us Russell Brand. Well, he overly thrusted his crotch in every direction to emphasise the point that Russell likes a bit of rumpy pumpy (I nearly wet myself at that). Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, Sally Lindsay gives us Dannii Minogue - yes that's her in the photo.. I know, the resemblance is staggering. Although at first you think she's Liza Minnelli, it's only when she superimposes Dannii's Melbourne accent with her own Gorton accent, do you fully appreciate the horror still to come. There was Bobby Davro and Les Dennis sat in a bath impersonating Chris Tarrant and Gary Barlow (not an obvious comedic link there), MacKenzie Crook and Ian Lee doing Steptoe and Son (very current characters I see) which scares you in a kind a paedophile-looking way, Jerry Hall doing Katie Price in her Texan drawl and perhaps the most disturbing... Tim Healy and Paul Daniels doing Ant and Dec. If you didn't watch it, try downloading it on iPlayer and see if words fail you and start dribbling and asking Matron for more tablets....
