Jolly Holly Willoughby

Holly Willoughby, who has taken over from Fearne Cotton as the host of the Xtra Factor, said that Simon Cowell had an unusual “presence” when filming. “I don’t fancy him, but he has a weird presence,” she told the Daily Star. “I mean, you have to in order to mentor people.”

A journalist then asked the TV host: “You mean he is a sort of Svengali figure?”

Confused by the question, Willoughby answered: “Is he from Svengal? I didn’t know that. Is Svengal in Africa?” [Digital Spy]

Oh! Hello to you! I am Chillor's sistor and I hope you don't mind but I have added you, since she has nothing but lovely things to say about you. Also, I have been to your website and the Marvin Gaye mash-up actually literally rocked my world. Hi!

ELAINE: He was my psychiatrist, you know. He knows all my patterns. In my relationships I always try to find some reason to leave, so as my doctor, he can't allow me to do this, so he's not letting me leave.

GEORGE: What do you mean - "Not letting you?"

ELAINE: He has this power over me, okay. He has this way of manipulating every little word I say. He's like a Svenjolly.

GEORGE: Svengali.

ELAINE: What did I say?

JERRY: Svenjolly.

ELAINE: Svenjolly? I did not say Svenjolly.

JERRY: George?

GEORGE: Svenjolly.

ELAINE: I don't see how I could have said Svenjolly.

JERRY: So maybe he's got like a cheerful mental hold on you.

Anyone could make the simple Senegal/Svengal mistake!
