Snippets: The Voice; Nigel Lythgoe; Dancing on Ice; Strictly Come Dancing.

West End star, Kerry Ellis, didn't make it through in The Voice, which does seem incredible until you think about what they're looking for - West End vocalists are a very different breed to pop singers or recording artists.  I remember the first time I heard Joe McElderry on X-Factor - amazing vocal but I thought, he's not a pop star, he's a musical theatre star - and what's the only album so far? Classics. I'm sure Kerry will continue to wow audiences in theatre land and probably have a much longer career than anyone from The Voice will. But I'm looking forward to seeing the show more than ever now, if that's the calibre of vocal they can afford to let go!

A chat with Nigel Lythgoe ... and a snippet of Sebastien Foucan and exciting news from Dancing on Ice, as it seems that the four Olympic champions, Robin Cousins, Katarina  Witt and Torvill & Dean are all going to perform together on ice this series!

The planned Ubisoft video game of Strictly Come Dancing has been pulled, as BBC bosses fear it may not meet our expectations -  a new one is being planned and more details will be announced shortly.
