‘Chinese Embassy Breaks Silence On Jedward’
Probably the funniest Sun headline of the year appeared after the Chinese ambassador complained about shrieking fans of Jedward, the limply camp shriek-haired tone-deaf brothers now amalgamated into one name who are currently enjoying their millisecond of fame on the 1960s talent programme ‘The X Factor’.
They joined a professional entertainer, Jim Carrey, at the turning on the Regent Street Christmas lights, where the theme this year is Disney’s A Christmas Carol (I’m sorry to purists who thought it was actually Dickens’ A Christmas Carol). This is a new motion-capture film which replaces actors with dead-eyed plasticky puppets. And these are the Regent Street lights from above.
