Surprised it hasn't been revived really. They did a one-off with Trevor McDonald a few years back (was it Simon Cowell who got the book?) which seemed to be a pilot but it got no further.
Yes, and Simon Cowell was also the subject of the last one they recorded with Aspel in 2003. Psst, the "few years back" was actually thirteen years ago now.
Anyway, there was pretty much a This Is Your Life revival a few weeks ago when Rod Stewart was on The One Show because the whole programme was devoted to his life and they had a few messages from his friends and some reunions in the studio, and the model railways society he denoted the money too the other month came in as a surprise too. It more or less was This Is Your Life in all but name. Which is all to the good, because they should bring it back.
