Poor Jamie Oliver. Having signed up as the frontman for Sainsburys, Asda has accused Jamie of being a "fake cockney"! This happened after Jamie had his chestnut and bacon recipe featured in a Sainsbury's ad before Christmas. Apparently, Jamie was accused by Asda's new marketing chief Rick Bendel of using fake Cockney accent to persuade people to eat them. Anyway, such controversies are bound to increase Jamie's popularity as a TV chef.

Talking about Jamie, was I in for a shock and disappointment when I switched on my telly to 8TV last night at 9.30 hoping to see what twist is Jamie delivering. What I got facing me was a lady with braces on her teeth which people call "Ugly Betty". Boohoohoo!!!!

Ugly Betty is based on a old Columbian telenovela Yo Soy Betty, La Fea (My name is Betty, the ugly one). The original was very, very funny (and also very sad...), not sure about the English version.

Personally, can't wait till Channel 5 shows it (I, unfortunately, live too far south of the causeway to get 8TV - just TV2 and TV3 and a bunch of Indon channels).

But yeah, I would have preferred Jamie Oliver over Ugly Betty.
