Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

Simon was pleased to announce some breaking showbiz news this morning. It’s been announced that Disney’s The Lion King will be coming to Sunderland Empire in the autumn!!! I’ve always wanted to go and see it so I can’t wait. I also managed to find the full shortlist for this year’s National TV Awards nominations. I was lucky enough to bag tickets to last year’s show and it was brilliant. I think the toughest category will be Best TV Detective, which sees Idris Elba’s character 'Luther' go up against the one and only Benedict Cumberbatch’s 'Sherlock'.

Also on today’s show was day 2 of our Singing in the Rain competition. I’ve been practising my singing talent all morning considering yesterday I sounded awful. I’m getting better!! Hopefully by the end of the week I’ll be good enough to try out for The Voice! If you hadn’t heard, for one week only we’re giving you the chance to win tickets to Singing in the Rain which kicks off at the Empire next week. All you have to do is guess the song I’m the rain?? Today I chose to perform my all time favourite song 9 to 5; I’d say I did it justice, it was pitch perfect!

Planning a little break away after the stress of Christmas and New Year? You might want to think again as research out today describes how organising a trip takes longer than the break itself. According to Teletext Holidays, Brits spend on average 18 days planning a holiday but only 6 days actually enjoying the holiday itself. The first 2 days of their holiday are spent trying to relax and unwind and the last 2 days are filled with thoughts of having to go back to work. I thought Simon would enjoy this bit of information seeing as he’s planning a little holiday of his own in a couple of week’s time and now has all the stress to look forward to. I’m not bitter........I hope he enjoys his ‘relaxing’ time off, (nice for some).
