We have just returned from the Totally Boyband press conference. As hoped, there were pastries and orange juice — and chandeliers.
But no booze.
The members of the boyband are:
2. Lee Latchford Evans!!
3. Danny New Kid!!!
4. Jimmy Constable!!!!
5. Bradley S Club!!!!!
We asked a question at the press conference. We wanted to know whether they thought they were going to come out of the series looking like anything other than complete laughing stocks. Dane Bowers told us to kiss his arse. And we all know where that leads — with Dane sticking his toe up your mimsy. :(
The men in the band are very serious about what they are doing. "I want people to see what I'm about," Bradley said. "I want people to see what I'm capable of as a producer." Dane Bowers is "just looking forward to getting back to music". "Nobody tells us what to say, what to do, or what to wear," Lee added, as if that was in any way a good thing.
The TV series will be very funny. It starts in September, there's a single out at the end of October, and the band are being managed by Jonathan Shalit (although obviously bear in mind that he won't be telling them what to say, wear or do).
