Local Impersonator Hangs Up His Hat (Retires)

Breaking entertainment news just in…. One of Beckworth’s less well known, or funny, local impersonators (and street cleaner) has announced he is to take immediate retirement due to the untimely sad death of his hero, and subject of his entire act. Nick Parsnips says he could probably never again perform his tribute to Nicholas Parsons without crying, unless fans force him out of retirement… Which I have to say, having seen his act the last time he performed it over 15 years ago, is highly unlikely. I wish him the best in retirement, the high street will be a very slightly less tidy place without Nick smoking a “rolly” whilst leaning on his broom and shouting “i’m live from Norwich” or “you’ve got one minute to get past me without deviation” to the puzzlement of passers-by. I would like to extend my sincere condolences to Mr Parsnips’s wife for putting up with him and especially to the family of TV and radio legend Nicholas Parsons. Christine Batley.

Crisis Talks At The Big House… News Just In

Exclusive breaking Royal news just in… Today a nervous Prince William joined his brother Harry, his Dad Charles, and beloved ancient Grandma (The Queen) in “crisis” talks to iron out details of how he and his American wife Meghan Markle could stop being Royalists and become parliamentarians or nationalists or something… The talks took place away from the glare of the tabloid media at the Queens holiday home in Slocombe (“Randy Bulls” static caravan park) and were said to have gone “well” despite Mrs Markle failing to get through on the phone… But i’ve been in contact with a close friend of one of Randy Bull’s security guards who said the outcome may have been cordial but there was lots of screaming, crying, fists thumping during the talks… Then they found out that was just Prince Philip trying to get into the Queens caravan. The security guard, who was listening at a window, says Mr & Mrs Markle demands include wanting to be able to market being “ex” Royals to make lots of cash, as they “want to out Beckham the Beckhams”… The ex-Prince is hoping to launch his own brand of of male grooming products (and wants to take style tips from Mr Beckham, such as getting tattoos and wearing vests), and Mrs Meg wants to get business advice from Victoria so she can launch a jewellery brand, Markle’s Royal Sparkles, to sell fake crowns, orbs and tiaras, etc. I wish Mr & Mrs Markle good luck and every success, especially with the cheap jewellery. Christine Batley.

The Real Reason Princess Meghan & Her Husband To Step Down From Royal Duties

Exclusive breaking Royal news just in… Today everyone woke up to the sad news that Prince William and his wife Meghan Markle are to step down from Royal duties and become just plain Mr & Mrs, but i’ve been in close contact with a close friend of Meghans to dig deeper and find the truth behind the headlines… Mrs Markle’s confidant let me know the real reason they want to retire early and move to the USA when I was promised to keep the truth secret. But being an investigative journalist means I must betray their trust and let my dear readers know the truth. Especially as the real reason is so banal. Megan’s lady-in-waiting said that whilst Mrs Markle wants to spend time with her baby son George not working for the rest of life is primarily so she can spend time with her Mum when her Mum retires in the next few months. Her mum, German President Angela Merkel, has always been very close to her daughter and Mrs Angula is said to consider son-in-law Prince William as her own flesh and blood, especially as he’s of German descent. Therefore he’s happy to get learn a trade and get a “normal job”, perhaps plumbing as he loves pipes, to support his new extended family. It is said that William’s Dad Prince Charles is livid as he’d always hoped his son would become a gardener like himself. I personally wish Mr & Mrs Markle good luck and a happy life together. Christine Batley. Deputy Chief Royal Retirement Reporter. Beckworth And Slocombe Herald Incorporating Nightly Gazette

Labour Blame BBC For Losing Election…

Latest Political Fall Out…. Yes Labour has announced that they lost votes not because Corbyn was a frail leader or that many of its supporters wanted to leave the EU, but because the BBC were bullies and always slagged off left wing nutters within the party… Meanwhile the pathetic Lib Dems blame Labour for losing (work that one out), the Brexit party blame a poor turn out on Amazon Prime showing a Grand Tour special on Thursday evening keeping its supporters from voting and the Conservatives believe Channel 4′s attractive ice sculpture got them elected, but they still want to close it down… And the BBC… And ITV…

Breaking Breaking News… Local Celeb “Robbed” Of His Crown

Breaking jungle based reality TV news literally just in as it happens… If you’re watching I’m A Celebrity live like me you will know that local celebrity Jack Agoogoo has come second as we saw Eastenders‘ Peggy Mitchell (Actress Jackie Tossa) crowned Queen of The Jungle. Some would say she is a worthy winner but not all. Jack’s sister Nelly has just texted me from Australia “the smug cockney cow better keep out my way as I had bet a weeks wages on Jack winning.” Before adding “He was f****ing robbed and I want a recount” If there is a recount i’ll let you know, but congratulations to Jack anyway. Christine Batley.

Local Celeb Likely To Go All The Way In The Jungle…

Breaking jungle based reality TV news just in… If you’ve been watching I’m A Celebrity you’ll know that our very own local celebrity, Jack Agoogoo has been working his “magic” on the ever so dull reality show by offering back rubs and happy endings to the lady contestants… And in an exclusive smutty text message to yours truly (from a sneaked in mobile) Jack told me he believes he’s on course to go all the way on the show… I thought he meant he liked his chances of winning the show but when he texted back he said he meant getting his wicked way with some of “the birds” on the show… Before adding even the lesbian one! Good luck to Jack, he certainly puts the reality into reality TV! If he does raise a jungle fever i’ll let you know. Christine Batley. Deputy Chief Celebrity Reporter.

Local Celeb Excels On “I’m A Celebrity” By Doing Nothing…

Breaking jungle based reality TV news just in… We’re just a few days into the show (or is it weeks? i’ve lost track as it seems to have been on forever…) and our very own local celebrity, Jack Agoogoo is winding the “happy campers” up by dodging all chores and challenges, especially the ones where you eat kangaroo cock, by having a forged “medical exemption” and by sleeping most of the time. The only time Jack has been seen joining in is when he’s tried to seduce the ladies with his Kajagoogoo renditions… Still he’s more exciting than the other Z-listers, none of who’m i’m heard of apart from Kendall Jenner, the American heiress of the Kendal Mintcake fortune. If anything actually happens in the camp i’ll let you know. Christine Batley.

Name Change Brightens Up Tedious TV Debate

Breaking political news just in from yesterday evening… Our beloved PM Boris Johnson showed his true mettle and raised the political temperature last night during the rather boring political televised debate with aged communist & vegan sympathiser Jeremy Corbyn. After answering a few stupid questions about selling the NHS to our American cousins, his favourite hair products and tax breaks for the deserving rich, Boris stopped to announce he wanted to, quite literally, spice-up the crass BBC programme. He proceeded to don a fetching long dark wig and declare he would only continue debating if host, Emily Matron, and Comrade Corbyn called him Posh Spice, or Posh for short. They quickly agreed and the debate continued with a certain added gravitas. Let’s hope viewers saw that Posh (Boris) deserves to be voted back into number 10 at the election so sanity can return to these shores and we can make Britain great again. Christine Batley.
