BBC ORDER NICKY CAMPBELL NOT TO BE CHEERY SCOTTISH IRRITANT AS PARIS MOURNS

It is understood that the BBC have instructed Radio 5 Live’s breakfast show host, Nicky Campbell, to tone down his laugh-a-minute performances during the forthcoming week, as a mark of deference and respect to those killed and injured during the terrorist outrage in Paris on Friday evening.

Campbell, 85, is famous for his ‘hail fellow well met’ demeanor, his Mr Know-It-All persona, and his witty retorts to guests and co-presenters, which has led to mixed responses from listeners and interviewees alike;  with BBC sports correspondent, Gary Richardson,  calling him ‘wonderfully endearing and a joy to work with’, while irascible journalist and erstwhile Sun newspaper editor, Kelvin McKenzie, famously described him as: ‘that Scotch cunt’

In a similar move, ITV have asked morning show presenter, Lorraine Kelly, to stop being insufferably twee and not to pose for any bikini pics during the three day mourning period.

  1. Are you sure he’s 85? I thought he must be older since he knows everything.

  2. In actual fact, he could be 86, Bun. You know how vague Wikipedia can be about dates of birth. Tsk 😦
