Graham Norton to be the British Eurovision commentator? Terry Wogan stepping down???
After this year's Eurovision, where Terry Wogan showed extremely unsportsmanlike behaviour, I did call for Terry Wogan to step down as commentator. But to replace him with Graham Norton? Is that really necessary?
Don't get me wrong, I've always had a soft spot for Graham Norton. I grew up loving "So Graham Norton" on Channel 4 with Dolly Parton and that old lady from the audience who kept turning up. All very amusing in a Friday night comedy chat show sort of way.
But whereas Terry mixed wit, with knowledge and enthusiasm, I feel Graham Norton is likely to mix his "wit" with more "wit" and a lot of cynical sarcasm. Which is exactly the reason I wanted Terry to step down.
I supposed I should stop worrying and give him a chance but alas, Dear Constant Reader, I feel the time will soon be upon us when Britain withdraws from Eurovision thanks to the badly handled BBC running of the show and British people's cynicism.
