“I would have said get out of this business immediatel­y.” Actor Johnny Depp on what he would have told his younger self. “I just don’t want to come last, really. If we get no points I’ll be disappoint­ed, but anything else is going to be a win. All I’ve got to do is not go on and fall flat on my face and hit a bum note.” Lucie Jones, the UK singer in the Eurovision Song Contest. “A bunch of X Factor rejects? That just says it all. How horrible is that? Isn’t it just a colossal waste of money not to take it a bit more seriously and try a little harder?” Katrina Leskanich, who won the Eurovision Song Contest for the UK 20 years ago. “Freud’s theory was that when a joke opens a window and all those bats and bogeymen fly out, you get a marvellous feeling of relief and elation. The trouble with Freud is that he never had to play the old Glasgow Empire on a Saturday night after Rangers and Celtic had both lost.” Sir Ken Dodd.
