Gest who’s popping up at Jackson’s séance?

For anyone that cares, psychic medium Derek Acorah will attempt to make contact with Michael Jackson on Sky1 tonight. And David Gest, a huge admirer and friend of Jackson’s, will attend. 

There are two specially-commissioned shows airing – Michael Jackson: The Search For His Spirit (9pm) and Michael Jackson: The Live Séance (10pm).

Both programmes will be presented by broadcaster and music fan June Sarpong. I worked with June back in our Kiss FM days and she’s a wise old head on young shoulders – always has been. That’s why I’m very surprised to see her name on these shows. I never thought it would be her kind of project. Still, a girl’s gotta eat.

So if you tune in, what will you get? According to the press release, the programmes "aim to give fans a final chance to connect with their hero, himself a firm believer in psychic ability." Derek Acorah will lead proceedings in the hour-long live séance taking place in Ireland. The venue was familiar to, and previously inhabited by, Michael Jackson so his attempt to contact the music legend will have an added twist.

Stuart Murphy, Director of Programmes for Sky said: “There is an insatiable appetite to find out more about Michael Jackson. He was an extraordinary figure and the curiosity surrounding his life – and his death – stretches well beyond fans of his music. These programmes will explore whether it is possible to make contact with Michael and will seek to give his fans new insight into their idol.”

June Sarpong commented: “I’ve always been a huge Michael Jackson fan, he truly was the King of Pop, and I was shocked and saddened by his sudden death. I think viewers will find this programme intriguing and will want to tune in to see what happens. It’s the first time I’ve done anything like this but I’m open minded and can’t wait to see what Derek uncovers.”

Writing in his blog, Derrne Brown said of the planned live séance: "Can you honestly imagine anything – anything – more anus-invertingly unpalatable than this? I hate myself for drawing attention to it." I kinda know where he’s coming from…

Today I am mostly lovin’ –
Hearing the word ‘w***er in an episode of Tim Roth’s US drama series Lie To Me on Sky1. The premise? An old sarf London mate of Cal Lightman’s (Roth) turned up to call in a favour. It allowed for a great deal of UK words/phrases to make their way into an American series ("We were West Ham fans at a Millwall game"). In addition, one scene called for Tim Roth to slip into his American accent – nice twist. 

Today I am mostly hatin’ – Sorry Darren Gough, but your Costcutter advert is cringe-inducing.
