It’s the friendship we never, EVER saw coming, but Michael Buerk and Tinchy Stryder‘s bromance is probably the best thing we’ve seen in the I’m A Celebrity jungle all series.
We don’t care how it happened – we just care that it’s GENIUS.
Last night, this gem of a relationship took a turn for the incredible as Tinchy taught Michael how to spit a rhyme or two. Otherwise known as RAPPING.
No honestly, this REALLY DID HAPPEN. And it’s IMPORTANT NEWS, alright?!
Michael, 68, distracted from rumours that he wanted to walk from the jungle by admitting he didn’t really have a clue about rap.
Anyone actually surprised by this? Probably not, no.
He said: “I know zero about rap, thought it was done by sinister looking men in hoods and shades.
“I don’t really like the sound of it, don’t understand it, there is no tune to it. Is it all about style?”
Well, you’ve got to look good when you’re rapping about girls and, erm, whatever else people rap about right?
Tinchy was on hand to dish out his top tips though, and advised the broadcaster to use rhythm and flow in his work.
So, how did Michael’s rap go? A little something like this: “I’m Michael and I’m real cool, stuck in the jungle, feel a real fool. My pants are red and I have no bed.”
INNIT. SICK. MAN.
If that’s not enough to make a number one hit, why not add his rap about the rest of his campmates?
He sung/rapped/spoke: “Jimmy’s the name and football is his game. How about we dream of curry but we don’t mean Edwina; We’re keen on Kendra but wish she was cleaner.”
10/10 for rhyming for a start.
Michael did wonder if it “would be more original if I kept my existing and pompous, middle-class, stuck-up and middle-aged prig persona,” before adding: “I don’t think that Jay Z is quaking in his hand-tooled Gucci boots at this moment but at the end of a few days who knows what may happen.”
YOU NEVER KNOW (although we’d put bets on the fact that Jay-Z doesn’t even know what this I’m A Celeb lark is all about. Sad times).
Considering Tinchy called Michael: “uncool that he’s cool,” is it bad that we’re secretly hoping for a Tinchy-Michael collab a la that AMAZEBALLS Chuckle Brothers duet?
SOMEONE MAKE THIS HAPPEN and we’ll release our own rap.
“Our name’s Yahoo, we like the didgeridoo..” Erm, yeah. Maybe not.
