So Frankie is out of there! After allegedly boasting about cocaine-fuelled sex sessions and weeks of bad behaviour, he has been asked to leave the show. It was only a matter of time, I suppose.
So what happens now? Well, one rumour floating about is that The Risk are to return, but this is more than likely a joke about their seemingly infinite number of lives. Another is that a selection of ex-contestants from this series will be "put to the vote" and the most popular will return. Yet another is that nothing will happen and nobody will go this coming weekend. That would, however, mess up the Sunday night results show, leaving show-makers with even more dead air to pad out. Maybe they could still do that thing where they read out who's staying in the competition, still take twenty minutes to do so, but just read everyone's names out.
Or how about this: Get them all to sing a song of their choice, then put each performance online available for download, as normal. But this time, whoever gets the most downloads is immune from elimination next week. Or something like that.
One last question: despite him being a bollo role-model, how long do you think it will be before some group of arseholes launch a "Frankie For Xmas No1" campaign? Sigh.
