Who would be your X Factor wildcards?

10th October 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

It’s the start of the X Factor live shows tomorrow and earlier in the week we found proof that East Boldon’s Lola Saunders had been picked as Cheryl’s wildcard. It would seem that on Sunday night’s Extra Factor a clip was played showing the final 3 girls rehearsing in the X Factor house and in the background you clearly see Lola walking past the glass door!! With this in mind we wanted to know who you think deserves to be the wildcard for each category. Personally I don’t really think it matters who the wildcards are, because to be honest Andrea Faustini will win it hands down. He’s absolutely amazing and I don’t think anyone can beat him!

Don’t forget to tune in next week: not only have we got X Factor’s Kerri-anne from Teesside on the show letting us know how she feels about Cheryl not taking her through to the live shows, but we’ll also be chatting to 80’s legends Spandau Ballet!!!! It’s also the last week of £1000 Minute. We’ve already had 2 winners this time round (both female I should add) and we really want to end on a high and make someone else a grand richer!

So much for enjoying a nice lie-in on a Saturday morning.......Simon and I have been roped in to doing a cheeky little Breakfast Show stint 6-8am just because you can’t get enough of us!!!

Enjoy your weekend everyone.

Who sings Tiger Feet?

Here’s what you missed........

Thankfully I’m feeling a little bit better today. My running nose seems to have stopped and now I only have a little cough, however Simon is now complaining of feeling a tad under the weather. I can only apologise for passing on my germs, but no doubt Simon will make a mountain out of a mole hill and he won’t have just caught a cold he’ll have a major case of man flu and will need to be quarantined.......he’s a bit of a drama queen.

My dad told me a joke the other day and I’ve been dying to tell it to Simon and seeing as he was feeling poorly I had the perfect opportunity to tell him my joke and cheer him up. I’m not the best joke teller because if I find it funny, I normally start laughing before I’ve told the punch line. Now get a pen and a piece of paper because you want to write this one down. Firstly, don’t act like you’re telling a joke, just pretend you need to know the answer to a question:

“Who sings Tiger feet?” and when the other person says “Mud” You start singing “That’s right that’s right that’s right that’s right....................”

Absolutely hilarious and if nobody laughs then you need to find more humorous friends!

Happy Birthday Simon!

Here’s what you missed........

Simon Grundy is officially 45.......but you didn’t hear it from me!!!

I searched high and low yesterday to find him a present that I know he would appreciate and ended up buying him some VW camper van cufflinks and a book to keep him entertained during those long meetings he always goes on about. The best thing about the book is that it’s called “The Bored Stupid at Work Doodle Book” and it’s full of puzzles, games and things to colour in. So when he’s sat in a meeting and he starts to nod off he can just pretend he’s listening but actually he’s just doodling. Not wanting to blow my own horn but I am a pretty good present buyer – I nearly bought one for myself too, but the majority of meetings I have are with Simon so he’d know straight away what I was up to.

Also on today’s show we gave away yet another Sun FM mug however these one’s have a fancy new design. They’re still extremely breakable and will probably fall apart in the post but at least you’ll know they once looked pretty.

Tune in tomorrow for another chance to win a cheap bit of china, and also for another chance to win a grand! Remember it’s not here long so don’t miss out on your chance to win big.

We have a WINNER!!

Here’s what you missed........

That’s right, there’s another lucky Wearsider who is a grand richer thanks to the £1000 Minute. Vicky Bennett from Fulwell managed to answer 10 questions correctly in 60 seconds and instead of using the money to pay bills, she’s going to treat herself to some fancy shoes and new bags!!

You’ve probably noticed I’ve been sounding a bit like Darth Vader recently, mainly due to the fact I’m full of cold and I’m feeling really sorry for myself. My immune system is pretty poor and now that autumn is officially here I was of course one of the first to get a seasonal cold. I’m fed up of it now! I’ve tried Lemsips, nasal sprays, hot baths, and Vitamin C however it won’t budge! Thank you for all your advice on Facebook and Twitter; so far it would seem I need to go home, have a ‘Hot Toddy’ and practically bathe in Vicks Vapour Rub, which I despise with a passion. A huge thanks goes out to Graham on Facebook who kindly told me I needed a big spoonful of man up mixture.......Now I suppose you’re right Graham, but if the tables were turned and Simon had a cold, it wouldn’t be just your average cold, it would be ‘Man Flu’ and it would be deadly!!!!!

Speaking of Mr Grundy, he’s kindly reminded me on a few occasions that it’s his birthday tomorrow, no doubt that’s all he’ll talk about in the morning! I suppose I better go out and buy him a present or else I’ll never live it down.

Here’s what you missed........

I apologise if you’ve missed my witty banter but I’ve literally been snowed under with Style Awards duties and thankfully all the hard work paid off. Everyone had a fantastic night and safe to say, my head was banging on Saturday morning, I can’t believe it was over a week ago!

Onto new and brighter things this week; we nearly had another £1000 Minute winner this morning! Laura from Witherwack got 9 out of 10 and will now and always despise the phrase “What you talking about Willis?” Everyone’s heard the phrase before, but did you know it was from a TV show called Different Strokes?? Laura didn’t so she didn’t win a grand! What a perfect way to kick off her working week!

A survey out today suggests that women spend 11.5 hours a week doing housework which mainly includes changing sheets and cleaning the toilet, and apparently men only do 6 hours a week with their main responsibility of taking out the bins. It caused a very heated debate on Facebook; the majority of women commenting said they actually do everything and their husbands do nothing. Whereas some men suggested their wives only spend 11.5 minutes doing housework, and 10 of those are spent supervising and pointing out things that need fixing!!

Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow for your chance to WIN a Sun FM mug......if you haven’t heard, nothing could be finer, than Sun FM cheap china!
