Jonathan Ross Quits

BBC News has announced that Ross is to leave the BBC.  Good riddance IMO.

I actually don't mind the guy. I'm not particularly surprised by the news mind you.

I liked him on the Film programmes but that's about it.  He has a very good knowledge of film, as does his brother Paul.

Re: Jonathan Ross Quits

Good News...... about time the overpaid, egotistical, self-centered, smarmy voiced, "i love me", so-called "personality", left the BBC.
Perhaps the BBC can now spend his wages, on some new (decent) programmes, for our entertainment, instead of providing a platform for his own self entertainment.

Don't sit on the fence Shutter, tell us what you really think Grin
Rumour has it that he turned down bigger offers when he joined the BBC.  One suggestion is that he will be signed by an American network.  Bet Oprah's quacking in her boots Wink

wrong thread, methinks....... but I get the jist of it......
as she is (or already has left) leaving too, I doubt it very much...... but the yanks are welcome to him.....
I just hope the legal system here does not requre an extradition warrant...............  (but there again, the yanks can always refuse his exit permit............. hopefully)  Roll eyes

Oh come on, I thought it was a good attempt at a funny Grin
I can't imagine him doing anything on the major networks as they already have established chat show hosts.  Maybe an obsure cable network may employ him.

Re: Jonathan Ross Quits

@journeys - but don't you remember Peter Brough and Archie Andrews?  They were a radio ventriloquist act when I was growing up.  ' Educating Archie' was a very successful Sunday afternoon radio show.  A number of well known performers started their careers on the show.
Unfortunately it didn't transfer well to TV as Peter Brough had a problem of keeping his lips still whilst performing - not good for a ventriloquist Smiley

Having said it shouldn't work on the wireless, how about a record? I had a record of Max Bygraves and Archie singing together something about, "Taking Legs Off Some Old Chair", to make another Dummy.
In 1951, Archie was kidnapped, millions followed the story in the press as if it was a real child. The person responsible sent an anonymous note saying Archie could be found at the Lost Property Office at Kings Cross Station. Archie made his last broadcast in 1958.

I know I am old enough ,is the wood worm coming out now?
