I think that this programme is absolutely brilliant, and a good way to use classic footage as a "hologram" image on the stage.

Also they are using the theme to "Bingo Night Live" - nice to hear that again too!

I only saw the first 5-10 minutes of the actual "act" but it looked pretty awful to me. A few gags bodged together, and the audience reaction didn't seem to fit - seemed like a victim of over-editing. Doubtless unavoidable when the act in question can't react to the audience.

I only tuned in for the jokes and the back-story, The hologram looked poor to my eyes (especially when the hands stayed stationary for a long time), and it seemed weird to me when they applauded the hologram at the end. I think it's the uncanny valley that ruined it for me. I found it easier to watch Frankie Boyle telling jokes in Grand Theft Auto (not that I'm a fan of him), because he walked around and gesticulated properly, and it's just like watching a cartoon. This just seemed stilted and disconcerting.

I thought there would have done something slimier to Monkhouse advert where there might have used his original script and added in bit n bobs etc.

ITV can't do bloody anything without the 'human angle' sob story. I thought they'd learn't their lesson after The Colour of Money, but no...

Grr... Why is some 3D compositing and animation being called a "Hologram". There was nothing holographic about it...

I watched a bit of it - slightly creepy, and the body animation wasn't really that good was it? If I'm honest PS3 games can look better.

Anglia (East) Look East
The sections where he was sitting at the Piano and his hands remained completely still was what seemed a bit 'off' to me - the lack of movement and the fact that because it was a 'hologram' they could only shoot straight ahead, limiting the camera angles didn't help either.
