Peter Andre

Dang, should have been more obtuse.

MsAspreyDiamonds Fri 14-Nov-14 15:16:03

I was going to suggest Simon Cowell although he is more like scrooge so can't imagine him switching on the lights....

Piffpaffpoff Fri 14-Nov-14 15:19:24

And it's caused uproar....

LoveVintage Fri 14-Nov-14 15:34:31

I am not surprised, I thought they would have learned after getting Mark Wright last year! Why can't they just get someone local to do it. Would it really make that much difference to the turnout?

Boney M are performing on Tay St too, as well as having the chocolate festival... I was planning on going with DM to the chocolate festival, but Perth is going to be pretty packed with the orange wonder there me thinks

We get the Singing Kettle!! Pfft!

Redcoats Fri 14-Nov-14 17:23:11

OP you re the worst clue giver ever smile

I'm quite jealous though, we don't have an official switching on, they just come on.

I love that article - dumbing down of the city gringringringrin

See, the words chocolate festival would be enough to get me to Perth for the day. Instead they give you, at no doubt enormously expense bloody Insania and a badly mimed Mary's Boy Child.

I may have to go to the chocolate festival. Only if I can avoid The Orange One though.

We have Danny Mac and carley Stevens from hollyoaks
(Never heard of them) and music from Ray Quinn.

I will stay in and watch strictly.

ConsiderablyBiggerBuns Fri 14-Nov-14 20:06:47

Please all count yourselves lucky - we got Chico (off of crap ages ago on X factor).

I don't think it is fair to say Simon Cowell is Scrooge.

He does a lot for charity. I remember once he gave a family a high five figure sum of money, though annoyingly I can't remember what for. I know he has millions but he didn't have to do it.

He also has sent the men who rescued the dogs from the kennel arson attack on holiday and gave money for the rebuild.

"A vulgar character from England" - Why blame England for the orange one?

stargirl1701 Fri 14-Nov-14 20:22:56

Love the article 'vulgar character'.

It struck me, at the Hallowe'en parade, that the shops ought to stay open late on these event nights. The store owner from South Street moans that the there won't be any extra trade as her shop will be closed. Keep it open then!

Figster Fri 14-Nov-14 20:24:01

Ha he switched ours on last night in a town in outskirts of bristol the Christmas light floozie!!

Do you have an Iceland?

neddle Fri 14-Nov-14 20:31:17

You know, I actually guessed from the title before I clicked fgrin

Figster Fri 14-Nov-14 20:37:35

Maha he's on children in need at the moment mincing it up how does he still have a career? Seriously

Fuckerysmuckeryboilsnspornery Fri 14-Nov-14 20:46:51

"A vulgar character from England" errr, vulgar character from Australia thank you.

LoveVintage Fri 14-Nov-14 21:03:55

grin needle

Oh yes, there is an Iceland, no doubt he will pop in there for his shopping on his way to the bus station.

chanie44 Fri 14-Nov-14 21:27:44

I bet his fee is 89p.

KoalaDownUnder Fri 14-Nov-14 21:36:38

He's a vulgar character from England, thanks! (Born in London, moved to Aus at age 6, according to Wikipedia).

Am just relieved that you're not sending him back here - I thought the title meant Perth, Western Australia for a minute!

Piffpaffpoff Fri 14-Nov-14 23:01:06

I'm not in Perth but quite close by and we have an Iceland. Maybe I should stake it out....(by the way, those adverts are AWFUL)
