You can still hear it if you listen: the sound of the Dagenham Girl Pipers coming through to the Blue Peter studio as they lit the last candle on the advent crown. But no more. The BBC is now in Salford and Oxford Circus and the iconic building, complete with the donut bit in the middle, is being sold as luxury offices and apartments. Well, it is handy for Westfield.
And what will all the ponces and cunts that buy luxury apartments in said block be after? Why, a Soho House of course! Maybe with a pool on the roof so they can bring their bastard children to ruin everyone’s fun. Perfect!
The developer has said that the new complex will pay homage to the building’s legendary past (which doesn’t sound very promising to us), and that ‘the partnership with Soho House is key to our promise that Television Centre will be the best serviced new community in London.’ *shudders*
