Quite like the jacket. Joel Dommett wore an identical one on the last series of TMS.
Tarrant is obviously the wrong host. I think the theatricality brought by Matthew Kelly was what really sealed it as a megahit, lifting it above the naffness the format has on paper. (Harry Hill sort of focused on the naffness of it all).
Also a reminder that Chris Tarrant used to host everything in the late 80s/early 90s. Like the public, I wonder if he struggles to remember anything apart from TISWAS and you know what. I’m sure many modern viewers watching the movie Shallow Grave and the scene where Tarrant is glimpsed on TV hosting a show called ‘Lose a Million’, probably assume it was some sort of fake game show (pastiching WWTBAM even, even though it was several years before that) just for the film.
