From what I remember the STV show might have been more watchable.


You mean to say that John Barrowman singing in a put-on Scots accent, accompanied by backing dancers dressed as giant Tunnock's Teacakes and cans of Barr's Irn Bru (very BBC-friendly product placement, there...) wasn't the entertainment highlight of the decade/century/millennium?

Heresy!

ITV London’s new weather forecaster starts today - Sally Williams. She’s been a reporter for several years and replaces Martin Stew.


Not the first person I'd think of being the new weather presenter. She did take a long time off until a year or so ago and then was only part time when she returned. I suspect she'll also be the Environment Correspondent which was Martin's dual role.

Don’t be silly, Neil. Fires are not allowed in the studio. Especially camp ones........all that glitter is a problem.

Alastair Stewart is a news legend. Simply put. I’m uneasy with this random roster he seems to have. Although, we never know; perhaps it’s of his choosing?

He is 67 - past the early retirement age and almost at the general retirement age. Probably has enough pull with ITN where he can pick and choose what shifts suit him.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

His general retirement age would have been 65

There's a sliding scale based upon your date of birth

Okay, thanks. I was just going on Wikipedia.
