Granville To Host Baftas

The Granville Theatre on Ramsgate's trendy East Cliff has been picked to host next year's Bafta Film Awards, it's emerged.

The surprise move came as the Academy announced that that bloody awful Noel has been nominated for a gong in this year's 'so what?' TV Baftas to be held next month. Also nominated in the ho-hum TV section is local Thanet soap, Bling House.

The much more prestigious film awards, which are usually held every February at London's Odeon Leicester Square, have moved to the Granville in honour of Ramsgate's new-found millionaire status, and the fact that local film and TV star Mr Richard Eastcliff lives nearby. Mr Eastcliff was unavailable for comment, due to a prior engagement with some lamp posts, but a spokesman said: "I'm sure he'll be delighted."

I've had more awards for my crinkly bottom than you've had hot dinners, Eastcliff, and don't you forget it.

Reminds me of that joke about Santa having a mince pie in his bottom and his doctor saying "Don't worry, I've got some cream for that."

Might be the Noél reference.

Sorry, should have said:

"I have more awards in my crinkly bottom than you've had hot dinners etc..."

Rather better comic effect, don't you think?

Maybe then, we could tot up the scores.
