Edwina Currie, Bobby Davro and Lembit Opik

In November of last year, discussing Lembit Opik's prospects after losing the Lib Dem Presidential election, I wrote:
He now needs to take himself more seriously in order to persuade others to take him more seriously. He has a Westminster seat to retain and will no doubt return to the Lib Dem front bench soon.

Otherwise... As I write this, Neil and Christine Hamilton, as if in dreadful warning to him, are appearing on Hole in the Wall.
Today The Daily Dust reports:

Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway returned to our screen last weekend to shine a little light on a very dark and dismal Saturday night’s viewing. As part of their regular “Ant vs Dec” feature, the boys are this week having to each produce a charity single, with the winner being the one with the most downloads by Saturday night.

Team Ant is made up of: Nicky Clarke OBE (OBE?…services to “hairdressing” apparently), Bobby Davro, Edwina Currie and Anthony Costa. They chose to sing the old S Club 7 classic “Don’t Stop Moving” ...

Team Dec are: Brian Conley, Liz McLarnon, Jonathan Wilkes, Yvette Fielding and Lembit Öpik. They are singing Wham favourite “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go”.

Sometimes I wonder why I bother.

Still, it's all for charidee. The Daily Dust has the links if you want to listen and download the songs.

They appear to have swapped songs. I'm not sure this changes anything.
