Gardener's Got Talent

It seems that today we are likely to receive some bad news and some irrelevant news and a whole load of gardening celebs will now be auditioning for Strictly Come Dancing.

In order to cheer us up and to demonstrate his talents we have a little video from Chris Beardshaw. You really MUST have your sound on for this...

Thank you Chris for coming to us in our hour of need.

NB: (There might be a problem with Blogger so if you can't play the video now try again a bit later.)

The Sock would like to thank members of the Sockerazzi and the Unofficial Chris Beardshaw Fan Club for contributing pictures. Absolute dedication to the cause.

Oops! Did anyone spot the deliberate mistake? I'll bet Fat Rascal did!

Fat Rascal said...

I didn't, I am not myself this morning as you know!

I was enjoying it too much anyway, but now I've got another excuse to watch again!

This may be your best yet!

I was most disappointed in that I couldn't access the video of CB. Is there an icon or sumfing I should click on? I tried the obvious ones, but no joy.

I still look in on your great blogs everyday, even tho I don't have uk tv. Sad or wat!

Keep them coming, they are much enjoyed!

Arabella Sock said...

Hi Hiltop. You clicked on the triangular play button in the bottom left corner presumably?

Otherwise I can only suggest you try again later - it works for me.

Arabella Sock said...

Actually you are right hiltop it has stopped working for some reason.

I'll investigate!

VP said...

It worked for me earlier.

I take it that's not the deliberate mistake then?

Xrkupff?!

Arabella Sock said...

No thats not the mistake. It has started working again!

Mr Beardshaw doesn't know his left from his wight... but the geezer's got natural wythm!

Arabella Sock said...

Hey Joe not so Slow!!! Well done.
Another thing the gorgeous pouting CB and I share in common. We don't know our left from our wight!

VP said...

Would that be Isle Of Wight?

hiltop said...

It's working, and it's very silly! Good oh!

emmat said...

okay so now, the music's working, but Chris just stays still. However, this does have a certain "wooden" humour of its own....

Arabella Sock said...

when you say "stays still" does that mean the picture doesn't even change?

I don't think that Windows movie-maker is much cop but I don't know what is causing the problems.

I'm going to evening classes in September to improve my photoshop knowledge as I am so far self taught. Hopefully I will find out a bit more about animations using that.

emmat said...

yup, the picture stays still.
I can't believe there is anything they can teach you about Photoshop, I am in awe of your skill skills.

Fat Rascal said...

Maybe you'll learn how to get him to do the Macarena and the Lambada?

VP said...

Or YMCA?

granro said...

He works perfectly for me!

Well, he's a bit wooden, but I assume he's been having lessons from Bill and Ben.

Arabella Sock said...

He does need to loosen up a teensy bit Granro. If we are going to enter him for Strictly Come Dancing he will have to up his game!

jane said...

He can't do any worse than Dermott Gavin anyway.
What about Chris Beardshaw is a gardener to the tune of John Ketley is a weatherman?
