Hello and welcome to today’s edition of A Slice Of Soap. As some of you may know, last year I was sadly forced to end my original Friday fun feature ‘Gus Watch’ due to actor Mohammed George leaving EastEnders. I toyed with the idea of a similar replacement – nearly coming back with ‘Dev Watch’ – before concluding that Gus Watch was one of a kind.
So, in honour of our hero Gus, each Friday I will present a Caption Competition. Now, before you all get excited, there is no physical prize. Instead, there is something far more worth winning: it’s better than Nando’s! It’s better than X Factor! It’s better than winning the lottery! It’s The Gus Smith Seal Of Approval. Albert Square’s poet gets another outing and here he is:
Before anyone gets all pedantic on me, his speech bubble is a thought bubble, technically speaking. But as this is a soap blog, I wanted to do something that put people in mind of soap bubbles (cos this is a soap blog), so I’ve used a thought one instead.
This week’s picture is EastEnders’ Janine. I’m sure you all know the rules by now. Just leave a funny caption by clicking ‘add a comment’. The winner will be announced next Friday. You can enter as many times as you like. I’ll kick off with my contribution….
"Ewwwwwwww! Who let Minty in here?"
That’s it for me, I’m out of here. Join me on Monday for a full preview of your favourite soaps. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me.
