There I was last night feet up with a cuppa ready to watch one of my favorites of the week and rugger me, they pulled 'Have I Got News For You' because of the EU elections.
To add insult to injury they then replaced it with 'Mrs Brown's Boys' - and a repeat at that.
Head must roll!

That's a shame as any appearance of Heidi on my TV is welcome and on HIGNFY too is a bonus.
I'm guessing she wasn't hosting the show but 2 out of 3 ain't bad.

Forgot to say, if you're a real fan set your recorder for the extended version it's 15 minutes longer, and worth the wait. I don't know if all regions are the same but here on BBC One Scotland it's normally on late, very late on the Monday (into Tuesday).
Here we have BBC Wales but having said that I'm sure I scrolled down to see what the other regions were showing.
Ah well, guess I'll have to wait for next week or my copy of the Private Eye to drop through the letter box.
Yeah, I'm sure it will be regional @Minivanman but the BBC site doesn't know my true location so may well have shown me what was transmitted for England as that's where my IP puts me. But does the storey (programme) change for you if you read the Welsh version?
I've no doubt that will change in time @RobPN, if they can't show it on Friday they can show it until the Election is over. Unless what you are seeing is a repeat, unless what you are seeing is a repeat.
Quite true, but I was just posting the info for future reference (that the longer version is on at that particular time in England).

Politicians should be prohibited from appearing on such shows period.
And HIGNFY has a lot to answer for in normalising and popularising the self-serving arseholes.

Is that really how you see it, or are you just being contentious.
As a long standing regular viewer neither the host, Ian Hislop or Paul Merton have ever in my view allowed anybody politician or otherwise to be anything other than open to ridicule should it be warranted.
Provide us with one clip to show otherwise and I'll take my hat off to you... or even better, eat it.
Over to you.
