Wogan won't do it (he wouldn't anyway) as he suffers back and knee problems and rumour has it, he doesn't get on very well with Brucie.

Does he really have back/knee problems? I never knew that.

Blue Peter is a famous television show and Gethin Jones has a celebrity career outside of BP.

What does Gethin Jones do outside Blue Peter then? I thnk he's been on the National Lottery Draws a few times, but with so many different people who have been on that, it's difficult to remember them all.

Did you know he trained as an actor/musical theatre performer? A choreographer I know has been in shows with him.

Are you talking about Pete Hillier? Here's some information about him. According to that article, Pete Hillier is a choreographer and director as well as TV presenter.

Looks as though they're moving away from the pink/purple/gold colour scheme, by the looks of the new logo.

There's also poll on the (unfinished) website asking people what they thought of the new revamped set (which will get it's first screen-airing during the new launch show on Sept 11th). The site's using the new masthead and GVL3.

The main show returns the weekend of Oct 2nd..

So, a show about ballroom dancing should look more like a jazz club.

Not a ballroom then?

Riiiggghht.

Of course you meant the look of the set. What did you think I thought you meant? It still makes no sense.

Thank you for your concern about my ability to patronise; but all things considered I will do things my way.

Sound familiar?

Yes, it does. And I appreciate your honesty.

I do not attack anyone personally though.

I don't like the 'm' - it looks too much like "Corne" to me.
