Gordon in the morning: Surprise all round

Whoever would have thought:

GUTTED Olly Murs hasn't heard from Robbie Williams since The X Factor finished.

Runner-up Olly, who sang with Robbie live on the show, has tried to contact the star twice.

Olly said: "I'm a bit disappointed Robbie hasn't been in touch.

"I texted him to say Happy New Year and congratulations on getting engaged but heard nothing back."

In other news, Hilda and Reg Snipton are gutted that Derek Batey has never sent them a Christmas card, despite having seemed quite friendly when they met on the set of Mr & Mrs in 1974. "He said he would keep in touch, but after that - nothing."

In other news, Harvard Dubois is gutted that Avril Lavigne has failed to respond to his offers of marriage. "I'm really upset. She looked at me through the TV in a way that made it clear she was hot for me" complained Mr Dubois, as he was pulled, naked and carrying a spear, from Ms Lavigne's wheeliebins.

Gordon does have a pretty interesting story, though, if it's true: Lady GaGa is managing to lose money on every date she plays:
A source said: "The gigs are losing money hand over fist because they've spent a fortune on pricey costumes, technical equipment and elaborate set designs. She spent £500,000 on one stage alone. But Lady GaGa gets what Lady GaGa wants. Her wardrobe is huge and she wants to shock - and that costs serious money."

Really? Shocking costs serious money? I think someone is confusing 'showing off' with 'shocking' there.

Given that touring is where modern mainstream acts are supposed to make their money, that might be a bit of a problem right there.
