Good, I was never a fan of that bloke anyway, he always seemed a bit strange to me and was in dire need of a shave Tongue

I think his downfall was the silly Big Brother programme - he should of stuck with horse racing.

I don't recall seeing that but I did see him in some wife swapping show thingy. He was so inconsiderate to the 'guest' 'wife' and plainly arrogant and rude. I think that was the beginning of the end for him.

The explanation was given by C4 today.  He was not sacked but simply not selected for the team for the new programme.
C4 puts their racing out to a production company and they asked a number of companies to tender for the contract.  All the companies pitching to C4 excluded McCruick from their presentation teams in their bids.

Which boils down to J Mc thinking he's more important to the world of horse racing than he actually is.
Think he was ill-advised to bring the case to court in the first place.
It has been said that all publicity good or bad is good publicity, maybe not in this case.
Are the other TV production companies forming a queue to employ him?, perhaps he'll be turning up on the chat-show sofa's for a while telling us how badly treated he was, but he should be careful, he does have a bit of a foot-in-mouth reputation.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

This guy must have been paid a fortune over the years, in my opinion he did well to last as long on TV as he did and it came as no surprise to most people that he lost the case.

Well down to earth with a bump for him then.
He clearly thought the normal way of life didn't apply to him and that he could walk all over people etc. Strange character. You behave like that to people, you get what you deserve.
Funny thing that, in the last 5 years I've seen the "what goes around comes around" thing catch up and bite many people. Clearly this chap is the latest.
