I read this in my local library and it's really, really nasty. It didn't make me laugh, it just made me sad. :(

Loved the wedding and loved this book - have bought 5 copies for friends and they have loved it too. You would have to be quite dull and prudish not to see the funny side.

Format: Hardcover
In the old sit-com, 'Hi-Di-Hi', Ted, the third-rate camp comedian's most celebrated act was his various impressions of famous people on the toilet.
We the viewer never actually got to see this performance as the camera would always pan away to the holiday camp audience laughing over their pints of brown ale while sweaty Ted went through his performance.

Spool forward to the 21st century and we have Alison Jackson basically doing exactly the same act through the medium of photography.
I'm not against her work because of any prudishness on my part, or any desire to stand up and defend the famous and wealthy from embarrasment. The fact is, her photos don't strike me as funny or in the least bit satirical, since they seem to make no commentary or critique on the celebs or public figures involved.

Oh look, it's Simon Cowell with his bum out, getting a tattoo! Oh look, there's a strip-o-gram at William's stag do (As though none of us had that mental picture anyway.) Oh look, it's Camilla in her underwear drinking a glass of wine (yawn)
Yes, very realistic lookalikes, and cleverly angled shots to make them as similar to the real people as possible... But what is the point?

Come back Ted, let's see your Queen Victoria on the toilet again.

An appropriate day to be reading this Royal Wedding spoof: April 1st. If you are getting a teeny bit bored with all the hype - and believe me even in Spain the Sunday supplements are getting into a frenzy about the upcoming Royal nuptials - then sit down with this new book and enjoy looking at Alison Jackson's hilarious account of Kate and Wills' romance.

PS Next to come: the 2012 Olympics?

Format: Hardcover
I always enjoy a good giggle and I thought that this book would provide a little light relief from all the serious publications available in the lead-up to the Royal Wedding - but I was VERY wrong! It is not at all funny. In fact, it is nothing but gutter rubbish! There is absolutely NOTHING clever about it and the photos are of very poor quality (very fuzzy and grainy). I can't think of anyone that I would want to give it away to, so it is going in the bin!... It's a sad waste of money!

I'm fairly broad minded and thought from the front cover that this book might be a nice present to send as a laugh to some friends who are "royalists" however when I received it and quickly flicked through it, I offended by some of the images. I was expecting smutty - I really wouldn't have minded that and I promise you I'm not a prude, but I would urge caution if you are buying this for someone else.

A great coffee-table book, if not a bit irreverent, which brings a smile to the hardest of faces. So lifelike it's hard to think they are lookalikes. Great fun book.
