I fucking hate the phrase ‘the elephant in the room’ but tonights Children In Need actually need to eat it. The press have already shown all the footage where Jimmy was involved, but why should this annual event suffer form the depraved actions of an individual and the failings of those around him.

Whilst I don’t agree with charity – that’s another discussion – but I fully support people’s efforts to try and make things better for vulnerable children. I do hate the conveyor belt of smiling ‘celebrities’ where some see it as a career move rather than what it stands for – offer them a paid gig on the same night!

Fucking eat that elephant and let the fundraising commence.
