But, as I commented several weeks ago, long before the Alastair Stewart “event”, I find it hard to understand why ITV clearly believes in double-standards.
Alastair, whether we believe he should or shouldn’t have, lost his job over his tweeting. And the ITV management went somewhat public over it.
Yet, Piers Morgan can do what he wants. And appears to go unchecked.
Setting aside all sentiment, bias, favouritism or like/dislike for both Alastair and Piers, I just can’t (and never will) fathom the double standards at play.
It’s bizarre. Tantamount to suggesting that Piers calls the shots and is above the law and is allowed to say what he wants.
I don’t know anything about this show at all and, particularly, whether any parts of it are broadcast LIVE. If the latter is the case, I’d imagine the production team would de-risk any potential accidental jovial or other reference to Caroline by briefing the contestants on her sad passing.
Regardless of my own views above, it would anyway be otherwise unwise* if the production team withheld such info solely in the interests of making better telly!
In fact, the more I think about it, there are significant reasons (as many of you have already pointed out) to justify cancelling the ongoing season of Love Island.
Great being your co-presenter @BBCNuala - it's not a job I do very often, and it is very different from my usual gig! But here's a snippet of our conversation earlier, that I'll be sure to show my little girl - and how we handle conversations about the #coronavirus in Singapore: https://t.co/oZX4jAgHco pic.twitter.com/Kxhpefu8fI— Karishma Vaswani (@BBCKarishma) February 17, 2020
Given the space and height constraints, there is only one small change I would make to remove the “awkwardness” of the layout. Just over Charlie’s right shoulder (to his left, as we look at it) I would remove the right-angle back wall where the two studio screens meet, and introduce an angled segment of screen at 45deg, so that the set follows more of the form of the sofa area.
There will be a million reasons why this isn’t possible, but I’m just pointing it out from an aesthetic perspective as I’m not an engineer.
Oh, hang on. I am. I forgot. 🙈
BBC news presenters being offered big money to jump ship and front The Times’ new radio station, trying to hire the likes of Nick Robinson and Chris Mason. https://t.co/e6lbM4aNIh— Jim Waterson (@jimwaterson) February 15, 2020
If the rumors of Rico’s departure are true, and Mariko will also be having some time off, Sharanjit Leyl is going to be very busy!
I guess Karishma Vaswani (also based) is always on hand to help.
Yes, Asad Ahmad was the Thursday and Friday presenter, followed by Emma Howard, followed by Kate Gerbau (sp?), who had been drafted-in from Newsround.
For the record, Moira initially did Monday to Thursday inclusive, with Asad on Fridays only. Moira then only did Monday to Wednesday eventually.
After a while, along came Breakfast Briefing, presented by Moira and Rob Bonnet from the newsdesk, from 0600 to 0630, before Dermot and Natasha took over at 0630.
This was preceded by Moira alone on the sofa from 0600 to 0630, still called Breakfast Briefing, then eventually she was paired with Rob after a few months over at the desk.
You recall the amazement at seeing Michael Buerk sat on the sofa. Seeing Moira was even more surreal.
All of this during the Dermot and Natasha era, if I recall correctly.
Sarah moved to radio quite soon after the 2000 launch.
Jane Moore, with Stacey Solomon and Nadia Sawalha on today’s panel.
Just a hunch/speculation.

Hope this all calms down and “normal service is resumed as soon as possible”.
