Performer Scottee has a few radical ideas up his sleeve and the latest goings on take shape in the form of the Burger Queen Contest! I went down to The Royal Vauxhall Tavern this week where the contest takes place every Wednesday throughout June. I heard the first heat was a riot, this week Judges included Paloma Faith, Timberlina, the Cock n Bull Kid, The Broken Hearts, the girls from Tatty Divine and the girl with the hula hoops on Britains Got Talent Marawa all presided over by the fantastic Amy Lamé from Duckie.

Scottee thinks it's about time we had some healthy role models on the scene, 'fat is a politic not a dress size' the contest is open to all, the slant is towards finding 'the perfect fatty to enter the final'. Throughout the evening Scottee and guests performed with insight. Tmberlina did some great songs on her banjo, Scottee did an emotional piece with black tears dripping down his face and Jude Bean presented a video diary of her weekly meals, a total hit! Meanwhile the contestants got ready for their own turns.


Two of my friends entered this week Angel Rose and Oozing Gloop along with Nina Neon and Roberto Palfrey. Nina Neon was the overall winner this week and brought the house down with a dialogue of commentary centered around her wheelchair.

Angel Rose performed her unique take on life, death and glitter.

Oozing Gloop mimed an emotional track from Hedwig And The Angry Inch.

Next week round three of the heats continues!
