THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

Emily Bronte’s Love Island

(As told on the Daily Mash.)

THIS year’s Love Island, as befits one of the most romantic stories ever told, is to have a tie-in novelisation by none other than Emily Brontë. Read the excerpts:

Chapter One

Arriving at the island, I feared I should never see Heathcliff again. He had departed for sea, or perhaps the Army. My heart was wrecked like my father’s ship on the rocks, but I then I ascertained there were some pretty buff guys I might wank off.

Chapter Two

The climes are far more clement here than the bluffs and moors of Yorkshire, so I slipped into a bikini. A bequest from a maiden aunt before the voyage had seen a prudent investment in implants, making me 34EE.

Chapter Three

The wit of the discourse at the poolside bar is effervescent. ‘Is Transformers a true story?’ asked Cheryline. ‘I believe it is a fiction like those of Edgar Allen Poe,’ I contended. And was well rewarded with a charming compliment from Brayden, who proffered ‘You is well fit, babe.’

Chapter Four

After a childhood and marriage vexed and tempest-tossed, I have decided to make a gift of my heart to Brayden. Or is it Marco? Or Jaxyn? I fear I am having great difficulty telling them apart! Either ways, I boned one of them on top, so should not depart yet.

Chapter Five

As the snake in Eden, in this very paradise there is a succubus straight from Hell itself: Anna. She has her eye well on my Brayden, as I lamented in the diary room while calling her a bitch. But my spirit burns too bright for this Love Island, and I keep my eye on the 50k.

Chapter Six

Brayden and Anna’s close but scandalously false relationship caused me to fall into a terrible faint. I thought I might expire of the vapours, when a rough growl erupted from the sunken garden. It was Heathcliff, my love! He was not dead but had been coupled with Sally. ‘**** off Brayden, you milksop’ he said, whilst getting right up in his face.

Chapter Seven

Deserved winners, Heathcliff and I have engaged a celebrity PR firm while we take in the marketing opportunities. Ours is a passion that will last longer than the limestone which underpins the Yorkshire Moors. Or about four to six months while we get our book out.

 

TOP TEN OF THE DAY

Top 10 best and worst UK seaside resorts ranked for perfect beach getaways

Bamburgh in Northumberland, with a population of just 400, scored 85 out of 100 for its spectacular setting, sandy beaches and good value for money accommodation

Despite its small size, Bamburgh’s impressive castle dating back to 1120 was a winner with visitors who also admired the expansive beach.

The survey of 4,000 Brits by consumer watchdog Which? to find the UK’s best seaside resort put last year’s wooden spoon winner Skegness at the bottom of the pile again with a score of 48.

However, the Lincolnshire destination was seen as family friendly and one visitor called it “unpretentious”.

And Butlin’s which has a holiday park in the town leapt to its defence.

It said: “It is a lovely place to visit and enjoys enduring popularity for generations of holidaymakers.”

Other larger resorts in the bottom 10 included Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, and Ilfracombe in Devon.

Rory Boland, editor of Which? Travel, said: “The results of our survey show that bigger is rarely better, with smaller, less crowded resorts taking the top spots over better-known destinations.”
