Celebrity Big Bruvver

IT'S been a while, folks, but I'm back with another batch of cheeky blogs on the world on TV.

Let's start with Vinnie Jones.

Never forgiven him.

Not for being a member of the Crazy Gang at Wimbledon which brought football into more disrepute than a global warming expert in the middle of the worst winter for many years.

Not even for copping a feel of Gazza's crown jewels in THAT infamous football match.

Nor for making a subsequent movie career based on violence.

But for completely ruining Juggernaut in X-Men 3 - The Last Stand.

It was the worst of the three X-Men movies due, at least in part, to what some fans consider mis-casting.

His one-dimensional portrayal of Juggernaut - a complex character in the comic books who has been on the side of the angels - was a travesty.

Jones is now in Celebrity Big Brother and, apparently, is favourite to win and favourite to walk although I'm not sure how he can be both.

No-one can tell me if he is favourite to get a red card.

Jones has an abysmal discipline record in football and has capitalised on his image in film and video.

Yet he is, amazingly, a role model.

It's a strange world when a man who has made his name through violence on the pitch and on the screen - and sometimes in real life - should be considered a celebrity worthy of adulation.
