Angus Deaton has been fired from the Beeb for sleeping with too many ho's and snorting too much coke. Who the hell presents Have I Got News For you now?!?!?
As you seem to have gone for "C"s (there's a double entendre in there), I'll suggest Christine Hamilton. At least they'll be able to ridicule her as much as Angus.Originally posted by encaser
I hope Clive Anderson takes over as he'd fit well. Or perhaps Clinton, oh, maybe he'd get pearls of abuse too.
They were probably more than a bit cheesed off with him. And it would have been wrong if they'd been any softer on him than they would have been on someone like, say, Jeffrey Archer.Originally posted by Lex
I suppose they had to do it to maintain the integrity of the show. But I thought Paul and Ian were a little cruel last week, they must have known that they were contributing to getting him sacked!
The point is that he was only dropped from HIGNFY because he is now unsuitable as a presenter for it. He is not unsuitable for other work (children's shows excluded of course). All the jokes on HIGNFY ended up being about him and he lost completely his credibility when mocking the guests each week - which is what the show is all about. That's why he was dropped from HIGNFY but not "barred" from ever working at the BBC again. Makes perfect sense to me. The BBC did exactly the right thing to save the show. In fact, they had no choice.Originally posted by PoochJD
I have to admit to being shocked that he was basically forced out of HIGNFY, and yet the BBC is still keeping him as a presenter. Surely that's the BBC trying to have all the cake, and eat it as well?!
Either he should have been allowed to stay on HIGNFY, or sacked completely, but not just dropped from one show.

OMG not Frank SKinner. Would that mean at the end of every show he would have a sing song with them all?
Um, "lead" is the word play yes, but it doesn't work the way you've put it there. It's an old pun, and you've messed it up good and proper. But you go with your version if it makes you happy.Originally posted by Sgt.Colon
No squirrel cos thats the play you see. Lead and lead.
