Look, I haven’t blogged in about forever, but this week, I was horrified by something on twitter that I couldn’t sum up in 140 characters or less.
For the past five days, I’ve been given access to Chrissie Swan’s twitter account (@ChrissieSwan), to send out tweets while she’s in the jungle on I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here. For the most part, it’s been an enjoyable experience. Cracking gags about celebrities sticking their heads into piles of poo, and being confronted with a meal of an ostrich sphincter. Most of Chrissie’s followers have responded well, sending messages of encouragement and support. Not all of them, however.
Now, I should clarify, that most of the tweets I put out under Chrissie’s name, I signed off with my own twitter handle. I thought that should make things perfectly obvious that it wasn’t my beloved La Swan tweeting, but my own depraved self.
I think of Ella Hooper as my TV sister. She has a new album out this week, her first solo venture, and it would be great if you bought a copy. She is such a prodigious talent, and an absolutely delightful human being. The album is called In Tongues and features the singles Haxan, Low High and The Red Shoes. It has been getting a lot of airplay on ABC digital station Double J, and nobody deserves more success than my beautiful TV sister, the radiant Ella Hooper.
