Adrian Chiles, who never met a famous person he couldn’t talk all over while interviewing them (preferably while being fawned over by that irritating Northern Irish bird who we thankfully can’t understand) is swishing out of the BBC to join the equally hideous Eamon Holmes on the GMTV sofa.
So, you get rid of witty pretty Penny Smith off-of GMTV and you bring in two men with skin like sausage meat who clearly think they are more important than anyone – up to and including the Prime Minister – who might deign to come into the studio.
The reason for Adrian’s hissy fit: the BBC have decided to get the party started on The One Show of a Friday with Chris Evans. ‘That’s it,’ said Adrian at the thought of getting an extra-long weekend every week. ‘I’ve had enough. I’m going to Hollywood.’ Or GMTV.
Well, love, you can fuck right off. And take the Belfast bird with you.
