Says the person who watches ITV quiz shows.....
Keeps the brain active. Anyway, the wife records it, and I just happened to be in the room when she watched it. Honest.

Seems strange, even if he joined on his 18th birthday, given the current training system with holds etc, that he would hit the front line by the age of 22. Most of the newbies arriving at Brize at the mo are much older than that.

Finish shift, put the jets to bed, leave the beer call in time to get to Snoopies in time for the Muppet Show....

camaraderie and management training all in one hit

peterperfect , those were surely 'bunny hops' from Gus Honeybun? Did you also ask that he waggled his ears?

I'm sure that having to cope with Gus was one of the tests for new presenters - some of whom didn't look too happy about the idea!

Beags, good point on the hops, I was confusing with the 'magic background' screen option kids used to write in for their birthday treat. I've now done a google-based refresher course which conjured up names of some of Gus' fabulous co-presenters: Gilly Miles.....Fern Britton, Ruth Langsford, Ian Stirling, Judi Spiers. To pass the test they all needed to have a wicked sense of humour and many of them occasionally came flying on various Westward/TSW TV news features down in the West Country. Gus is in his late 50s now and was last seen at Flambards Theme Park near Helston !!!

In reality Jeremy Kyle is an extremely intelligent and capable man who makes a good living from dealing with knobs. I doubt he himself finds it all that edifying.
