And now for something completely different.
8 December 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

In January 1983, television changed forever when the BBC launched this extremely cosy show. There had never been early morning television like it before. It was presented by consummate veteran Frank Bough (cardigan man), leggy blonde Selina Scott and Nick Ross. David Icke was the sports presenter and diminutive Russell Grant brought astrology into the mainstream. Scott left the show in 1986 and moved to "The Clothes Show", Bough left in 1987 to concentrate on presenting "Holiday". In fact, things went downhill for just about every one of them soon afterwards. Bough got embroiled in sex and drugs scandals that effectively finished his long and distinguished career, Scott crossed Donald Trump and no longer gets work on the TV, Icke became the subject of ridicule when he declared that he was the son of God during an interview and became sidelined and Russell Grant never appears on mainstream TV anymore. Only Nick Ross still works as a mainstream presenter.
