Sir Paul wasn't picked

There has been outrage over the revelation that the BBC has not broadcast a section of the Voice because the judges didn't turn around, and the BBC knew that this would cause outrage.

"We admit it," said show producer, Sam Pling, "we can't broadcast this segment of the show, it completely ruins the credibility."

What has caused the outrage, controversy and amazed incredulity is that for a laugh, former The Beatles singer-songwriter, Paul McCartney went on and sang Hey Jude while playing his own guitar.

"Oh yeah," said Sir Paul McCartney. "I went on that show for a bit of a laugh you know. Me and Sir Tom go way back. We're in the Singing Sirs on a Wednesday afternoon. That's a group of OAP ex-singers with knighthoods. I thought he'd see straight through me."

"It's a bit embarrassing," said Sir Tom. "I should have realised it was Sir Paul. I didn't turn because I thought it was dreadful at the time. All wailey and scratchy."

The same opinion was given by Ricky and Kylie but not Will-I-Am.

"I'd have turned around," said Will-I-Am. "But I play this annoying game where I turn at the last second for dramatic effect, but sometimes the song runs out before I expect it. I'm just a nob really."

The most embarrassing thing for the show was that Sir Paul McCartney had sung the song Hey Jude in exactly the same way as he did at the London Olympics.

"That explains that," said producer Sam Pling, "McCartney was shit at the Olympics too."
