There's probably nobody who's bothered, but the official list of contestants for the forthcoming series of If I Eat Bugs Can I Have A Daytime Chat Show has been released, or leaked, or someway come into the public domain. There's a few music-related celebrities in reduced circumstances involved - Little Jimmy Osmond, crushingly, would be the most famous of them, but it's interesting to see that Anthony Costa from Blue has decided to go straight to has-been without the awkward solo records in-between, which might be wise. Jenny Frost becomes the second former Atomic Kitten to head for the jungle - and lets face it, what a success it was for Kerry Katona winning the last-but-seventeen series.

Also going: Kimberley Davies, one of the few former Neighbours not to have tried making records; David Dickinson, who might at least be as spectatcularly horrific as he was on Dealing With Dickinson; Elaine Lourdan, someone who was ex-Eastenders; Sid Owen, another ex-Ender but with perhaps the world's smallest pop career well behind him (Copies of his only single, Good Thing Going, are actually cheaper brand new from Amazon than they are second-hand); Carol Thatcher, who is the closest thing in real life to Rosemary's Baby; and Sheree Murphy, apparently from Emmerdale Farm but whose most recent TV appearance seems to have been "Granada Reports - playing herself."

We suspect you can now forget completely about this programme and go about the rest of your life.
