Blackpool Illuminations Switch On

?Not what we wanted here? - Local - Blackpool Gazette

It's that time of year again. Blackpool Illuminations start in a couple of weeks. After last year's switch on by Robbie Williams, this years ceremony will be performed by.......Keith Lemon.

Who? I've never heard of him. Has anyone else?

'He will be joined by singers including Pixie Lott, Joe McElderry, Olly Murs, Scouting For Girls and Beverley Knight.'

I've heard of all of them. They are bigger stars than him, so can't one of them switch the lights on?

I had the same thought too when I heard it ... thought it was just me who was out of touch.

Keith Lemon isn't real.

He's a character created by Leigh Francis.

Probably the most successful comedians of the last ten years, with the Avid Merrion character, and the series Bo' Selecta!

Critically acclaimed, and hugely popular with audiences.

Quite a coup for Blackpool.

I should imagine he'll be a big draw.

He does Celeb Juice on ITV2, I find him funny.

He will pull in the crowds, he has got better with age I think.

Try and imagine if Englebert Humperdinck had had a child with serial killer Aileen Wuornos.

Can belt out a tune, has a liking for tattoos, and is a little bit mental.

guess anyone with an Indian father who changed his name from Ranjiv to Englebert/Gerry and a Floridian serial killer lesbian prostitute as a mother would be a 'little bit mental ' specially if they came from Stoke

(Stoke is Derbyshires equiv. to Lancashires Bacup , think 'Dueling Banjos')

hope that explains things Eric
