Caking it
Just received this by email:
My name's Holly and I'm e-mailing from Lion Television. We're making a brand new entertainment show for the BBC and I was wondering if you had a few minutes to talk about your cake decorating.
It appears to be for real, and obviously I'd like "the chance to win big cash prizes", but do I have "what it takes"? I certainly don't have any desire to be publicly humiliated on live TV, which unfortunately is what I suspect it will involve. Still, I suppose there's no harm in talking to them...

A more plausible imminent TV appearance may be as part of the studio audience for "Street Cred Suduku" [sic], as I've just applied for a couple of tickets from SRO Audiences. The fact that they're still using the term "Street Cred" (which I thought was infra dig these days) suggests they don't have any, so it should be right up my street.

I seem to remember catching Street Cred Suduku (sic?) on TV and thinking it looked pretty poor. Unfortunately I can't remember what made me think that. I think it was something like getting two very different shows and pushing them together as hard as possible and then wrapping duck tape around them to stop them falling apart in the way it really should. I think they needed more duck tape.

Of course, that could be me making stuff up because I have the memory of a goldfish and an occasional inability to separate dreams and reality (no, really).

I thought it was a new show? Or have you just seen trailers for it?

In that case I've either had prophetic dreams of the future of TV or more likely I'm just htinking of a different show. Though having actually stopped being so lazy I suspect http://www.ukgameshows.com/page/index.php/Street_Cred_Sudoku is what I am thinking of which implies it was broadcast first ok UKTV G2 last year. SO I guess this is a second series or something? I dunno. I'll leave you to do the rest of the google and wikipediaing and the rest.
