I don't want to put the kiss of death on this, but, to my pleasant surprise, we live on Boss Street and we've not had any noise or disruption (apart from the waste of our licence fee) from Lame Academy....

Thought I would share this, which I've been forwarded from a colleague's intranet where it appeared last week. Never have I been so pleased to be outside someone's target audience age range:
"Free Television Tickets For Comic Relief Does Fame Academy On BBC3
"We are inviting fun, lively, noisy people to join the audience for the LIVE performance of Fame Academy on BBC3. This is going to be a fun night out and one NOT TO BE MISSED.
"The companion show hosted by CLAUDIA WINKLE MAN, takes a more in-depth look on what goes on in The Academy and the live performances of 'the students' (celebrities in the House, they are called 'students).
"Claudia will be talking to the 'student' who has been thrown off the show by your votes and there will be special guest/bands from the music world to chat about the performance of the 'student' and discussion about the goings-on in The Academy.
"Where - The shows take place at St Olaves School, Tooley Street, London SE1 2JRT. The School is at the bottom end of Tooley Street near Tower Bridge.
[Dates and times deleted]
"NOTE: We do need people for next week so if you are free, please can you help us out for Wed, Thurs and Fri
"4 TICKETS PER APPLICANT - We will be doing 2 shows during the evening and hospitality will be offered to you during the break between the 2 shows. [LR - that explains a lot]
"The age suitable for this show is 18-35 . As all members of the audience will be seen on camera will want you all to DRESS TO IMPRESS.
My mother is 60 and is addicted to Fame Academy, so much so that a recent (and quite rare)daughterly offer to spend the evening with her was unequivocally turned down in favour of her staying in and watching Fame Academy!
(Mind you, this is the woman, who, when I was travelling in SAmerica and managed to get to finally ring home, said, 'Home and Away is on, call me back in an hour).
