I’m not sure I like the idea of Dermot O’leary’s style of presenting hosting this, it’ll all be done in that ironic sarcastic style, I’d like to have seen someone maybe a bit older who is likely to talk about the older LWT stuff as if they’d actually watched it.
He's 45 years old! LWT had only been going for five years when he was born.
I can't see any problem with Dermot O'Leary presenting this.
Peter Kay presented Goodbye Granadaland. The Granada studios were completed in 1962, and Peter Kay wasn't born until 1973. I don't recall any complaints on here at the time about the choice of presenter.
Peter Kay is a TV geek (hence Britain's Got The Pop Factor...), and he grew up in the area: he was a natural, yet contemporary choice.
Dermot O'Leary is a different choice, and makes sense on paper. I would suggest that the guests are more important in this show.
