Week Clue
1 Hello, I'm Knickerbocker Glory, and I'm so excited. "Ice" could scream. But pay attention to the small details if you want the big scoop. Just like a Knickerbocker Glory I'm full of layers from my tippy toes right up to the cherry on top. You can call me a frozen delight, full of sugar yet a little spicy. And I'm here to entertain the nation. I want to squeeze a little zest into the competition. I get a golden buzz out of performing and just being here is a maxi challenge in itself. I just hope you all love me. My stomach has churned fruit. I hope I don't freeze on stage.
Wow, last time I nearly came unstuck. I managed to cruise through round one without melting under the pressure. With so many ingredients to juggle, I hope I have the recipe for sweet success again this week. This isn't an all star talent show, but, yes. I can juggle. Not a lot, but if I had an assistant, then maybe. I have a little 'confection' to make. I dabbled in a little magic here and there. I love the illusion of what is real and what is not, like, I was magician Blaine's instructor. This pudding is just kidding or am I? Time to put some magic on the dance floor, but it's not a race. I am a dish best served cold.
The guesses sure have been wafer thin. I'm the coolest thing in this competition, but when I think back to the little sprinkle of things that got me here, it gets me all whipped up. The early days were so so terribly busy. I was spending mornings on the floor and the evenings in the midst of a ball, but there were plenty of fun times in the PM with the MP. Oh what a QI? I've also sliced it with the best, making food shapes with superstar DJs. Classical Knickerbocker Glory dame. It was a carry-on and took some topping. Okay, these legs are jelly and I'm all set for stage.
Last time, the panel tried to get the big scoop. But can I sweep up the competition again? I love to entertain but it wasn't always that way. This sweet treat had no intention of being famous, fame just came knocking on my parlour door and it's got me all into a whip. It even got me working on ice cream sundaes. What a drag! I'm best served up on a summer's day by the sea. From Birkenhead to Brighton. But one of my favourite seasons is Winter. Face it, that sounds familiar. I'm so sweet butter wouldn't freeze in my mouth, but I keep getting cast as a villain. I've just given you quite a serving there, what a treat.
