Topgear has become Pheonix Nights with cars !
Except Phoenix Nights was comedy genius.
Totally +1
Another vote from me. Phoenix Nights was written by Peter Kay and Dave spikey though. Without being spoon fed a good script, McGuinness is woeful.
Like Tony Hancock, do you mean? wink

Exactly, a couple of hours a week.

I think someone's bored. There can be no other reason for the dribble that's emanating from his keyboard.

You said the BBC were wanting to get him on every show, this isn't the case at all, so I'm not sure that it's my keyboard that has dribble on it.

The word is drivel.

That man again. What is it about him that has the BBC wetting itself to get him on just about everything? Genuinely don't get it.
I dont think they are wetting themselves. He has a high profile at the moment, and therefore when your wanting new gameshows to be a hit you get someone like him to present it.

They have done it with Michael Mcintyre and other presenters. You see them on one, and then suddenly its 2 or 3 shows.

There are a few comedians that are *all over everything* at the moment.

Josh Widdicombe, Romesh Ranganathan, Rob Beckett are three that immediately come to mind, plus of course Ed Gamble, new Great British Menu judge. ??!!??

Normally because these are light entertainment shows and therefore it helps having a vanilla comedian to present alongside someone else.

Nope, the word is dribble - quite deliberately as the man is dribbling. Thanks for the contribution though, genuinely more interesting than the drivel being spouted by other, cough, Users.

Well I will leave it there then as proving you wrong has got you rather upset.

You're absolutely on the money. I'm sitting in the corner of a dark room sucking on my sleeve and wailing between heaving gasps to make the nasty internet man go away.

Or not. Take your pick.

Gamble's a bit of a foodie. He and James Acaster have run a podcast since 2018 together where a guest orders their dream meal in a restaurant. I'd guess that if the hosts weren't interested in food, the format wouldn't be into its 7th series.

He's also diabetic so has to watch what he eats.

Deep joy. Think I’d have more fun scraping the cheese off my helmet and feeding it to the dog.
