Good riddance!
31 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The axing of the Big Breakfast was on the cards for sometime. It was destined to face the chop since they had wicked presenters like Paul Tonkinson, whose jokes were awful and lame, Richard Bacon, who can't even act properly. Amanda Byram looked awful as a presenter. The problem was that they couldn't bring experienced presenters. Johnny Vaughan and Denise van Outen were the best presenters of this programme - better than Chris Evans and Gaby Roslin. Paul Tonkinson - who the hell is he? Amanda Byram - what?! Well I believe Kelly Brook's curse struck the programme after her "shocking" sack, just six months in there. I believe it was the right thing that happened to the Big Breakfast.
