Mika

ONE-HIT WONDER Freddie Mercury rip-off merchant who Steve Wright played to death in early 2007. Also, another summer holiday morning ITV fillers revolving around titular pest from Finland, whose pride and joy was a reindeer called Ossien, who was on some kind of quest, and whose arrival on our screens was always heralded by a chorus of sickly-sweet kids shouting “Miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiikaaaaaaaa!”. One episode featured Mika betting on a pigeon race along with some locals in backward reindeer-roasting village; ends up quids-in, but nearly doesn’t turn up to collect winnings. That was the level of excitement.
