Come on, Wetten Dass gets bloody huge stars on which the Beeb can't even afford.
aaarrse. Iggy Pop is on Wossie's show tomorrow... Iggy f*@$ing Pop ffs.
In my opinion, Gottschalk is a 50s throwback - he appeals to an older generation who enjoy his smug condescension (thinly veiled as old-school charm) directetd particularly towards the ladies (I just cringe when I think of his obsequious 'charm' when J-Lo was on). He's Des O'connor, but less funny and less orange (not that Des cracks me up, you understand), and with a desperately 'whacky' dress-sense ... ach ja, did you see vot Thomas G. voss vairrring last night... etc. ad nauseam.
