The Bad News and the Bad News

The Sock cannot believe how cruel life can be! The Unofficial Chris Beardshaw Fan Club were ecstatic that their untall gardening hero is to be presenting a new Wildlife programme this Autumn. The programme will no doubt be full of hedgehogs and we don't want any jokes about little pricks not when we have a big one on the horizon...

The incredibly bad news.....

Nasty Nick Knowles is presenting it!!! The sight of this man, who always has a slightly unpleasant unwashed look about him, makes the Sock feel ill. Really. To the point where she won't be able to watch it! And the man is ubiquitous these days. Why? Yeuch!!! Totally charmless and unappealing. Why couldn't they get Joe to do it if they wanted another mockney geezer?

Oh dear, poor Sock. It could have been worse .... they could have asked Bill Oddie!

I'm confused - does this mean CB's bowed out of the gig? Or is he an expert wheeled in from time to time on the programme?

VP said...

PS It could have been even worse than Bill Oddie - Kate Humble!

Nick Knowles -Shudder- at least he will be a counterpoint to CB's fabulousness.

I think Narsty Nick does the intros and cutie Chris does the intelligent stuff. Bill Oddie isn't worse - he is just a miserable old bugger but at least I am able to stay in the room when he is on. Narsty Nick is on a par with Christine!

Now I am wondering if Nick is trying to get into the gardening/wildlife/nature thing wholesale!

My 'adopted' son has applied for this and I got a little excited as I thought they could be the same programme.

The slight hope of some insider Beardy info out of the window then!

The link doesn't work - you'll have to search the Beeb for

'BBC One Goes To The Ends Of The Earth'

I am afraid Nick Knowles is one of my borderline boilers.
(google it!)

Arabella Sock said...

Ha ha! I googled all sorts until I came up with the right combination.
Oh nooooooooooooooooo Emma..
