‘Good morning! And welcome to this week’s Friday Question - brought to you today from the arsehole of the internet!’
That’s how a qualified TV presenter might open proceedings if this was a television programme – but it’s not! It’s a blog which is hidden in an unread corner of the interwebs.
Today’s question provides an open forum for discussion of TV presenters of the past and the present. The ones who give you that warm glow every time you see them.
Perhaps you fancied Maggie Philbin all those years ago and looked forward to Tomorrow’s World on that basis?
Maybe you saw John Craven as a slightly stern but kindly Uncle?
Perhaps Brian Cant reminds you of your alcoholic Dad?
Of course, the door’s always open for discussion of the opposite end of the scale.
Maybe Steve Jones makes you want to peel your own eyes off with a teaspoon so that your retinas won’t be burned by the vision of his big wooden head ever again?
Maybe Alexa Chung’s vacant, sterile, ‘indie’ faux-kookiness makes you want to heave?
Who’s your favourite / least favourite presenter?
