What is going on with British celebrities these days? It’s as if they know the gravy train is pulling into the station and are taking any old job to stay on our TV screens. David Walliams, for example, starred in Little Britain which has to be one of the most successful comedy series of all time. Yet this week he hosted a dire show on Channel 4 named Awfully Good showing crappy bits of TV from the past.
This follow Alexander Armstrong, of Armstrong and Miller, staring in Pimms adverts and a piffling quiz show named Pointless which has to rank lower than Jasper Carrott’s Golden Balls. Then there is Big Brother’s front woman Davina McCall pushing shampoo and fronting a forgettable rival to Who Wants to be a Millionaire named The Million Pound Drop.
I guess that, like the rest of us, with unemployment due to rise they think that they should just take whatever they can get. If their agents are listening then I need a cleaner for my flat and Ms. McCall may be suitable. As for the other two, if they are any good at plumbing then please Email their CVs to me care of Talking Bollocks.
