It appears that Deal or No Deal star Noel Edmonds has signed up to be a celebrity judge on Simon Cowells new reality show Got Talent. As this show is open to under 16s and Simon Cowell is involved with the G-A-Y nightclub, Noel Edmonds should think carefully before appearing on this show.

Its disappointing that Benny and Bjorn have decided to associate themselves with the X Factor show. We must hope they take no part in the judging and just keep to mentoring the contestants. They should take no part in deciding who is voted off as the rejected contestants may have to appear at the seedy G-A-Y nightclub.
