T-Mobile Unveils Royal Wedding Ad

The Royal Wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William is less than two-weeks away now, but before the happy couple tie the knot on April 29th we can expect William and Kate – The Movie (Channel 5, 3.55pm, April 24th), more shameless merchandise and a plethora of TV specials across all the main networks.

I personally can’t wait until the big day, but I know there are many people out there who plan to make a point of being as far way from London and a TV as possible for the much anticipated nuptials.

So for those of you who are slightly miserable here is a little treat, which surfaced on YouTube on Friday evening.

Royal Wedding – T-Mobile Ad

The advert part of T-Mobiles Life is for Sharing campaign follows the hugely popular advert filmed at Heathrow airport on October 27th last year, featuring unsuspecting members of the public.

Heathrow Airport – T-Mobile Ad

Not surprisingly this latest attempt to spark fun into the mobile phone industry, featuring very accurate lookalikes of the Royal Family (Prince Harry and Camilla have to be personal favourites) has already pulled in four million views, half as many views of it’s hugely successful predecessor.

Who’s your favourite lookalike in the video? Are you looking forward to the wedding of the year? Post away your comments below….

TV Preview: Jersey Shore

If you thought that the imminent demise of Big Brother would spell the end of reality shows featuring fame hungry wannabes, horny young exhibitionists and self-obsessed individuals, you were wrong, because MTV’s latest stateside hit Jersey Shore is heading to the UK.

Since it launched in early December, Jersey Shore has rapidly become the most talked about show on American television. It has made celebrities of its stars including Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and broken records for its high ratings. The final episode, which pulled in 4.8 million viewers, was the top-rated programme amongst 12-34-year-olds on the night, while the series was the number one original cable series for the month of January. It’s already been commissioned for a second season too.

Stephen Fry scoops two awards at the NTAs

Stephen Fry was the big winner at the National Television Awards tonight winning two awards.

Fry not only received the Best Documentary award for his series Stephen Fry in America, but also took home the Special Recognition award for services to television.

On hearing the news Fry said: “I really am completely staggered by this, I had no idea this was going to happen.

“I have the highest possible belief in television at its best. I think of it as the nation’s fireplace, about which we can gather together and be lit by its light and warmed by its heat.

“It can make us feel better about each other. And it can make us feel better about ourselves.”

Doctor Who also won two awards Best Drama and Best Drama Performance for David Tennant who bowed out of the sci-fi hit on New Years Day.

Other winners include Gavin and Stacey, Loose Women and The X Factor – with Ant and Dec also taking away two gongs.

The night also saw the return of Jedward who performed alongside Vanilla Ice, while fellow X Factor star and show winner Joe McElderry performed Don’t Stop Believing.

The awards now in their 15th year were hosted by Dermot O’Leary at the O2 Arena in London.
