After denying it (just yesterday!), Graham Norton has finally admitted he is going to take up Terry Wogan’s Eurovision duties now that Tez (say it isn’t true!) has called it a day.
Now that Eurovish has become a vile east vs west thing (with them winning every year because a. they’re desperate for it b. they all vote for each other where we would never be caught dead voting for say France and c. they’re cheats) with songs that aren’t even funny (except for Scooch – above with Tez *lets pristine tear run the full length of a fully made-up face*), we are officially over it.
It is still ridiculously one of the BBC’s biggest ratings smashes of the year, but also one of its pricier progs seeing as everyone else pleads poverty and we have to cough up the Queen’s ransom.
Anyways, the Beeb has done the only thing it could do on finding out that Terry Wogan will no longer be royally ripping the piss out of ‘Johnny Foreigner’ on an annual basis and recruited a gayer in the form of Graham Norton to oversee proceedings (honestly, what with a role in La Cage Aux Folles and this, Norton has become so gay he’s looped round and is probably straight again).
He released a statement saying he delighted, over the moon, blah blah blah and while we have a lot of time for Mr. N, lovely man, won’t hear a word against him andcetera but frankly *lip starts to quiver*… he ain’t no Terry.
