The Day The Laughter Might Die

A bit late with this, but Digital Spy reports, in a piece claiming Harry Hill is under consideration to present this year's Comedy Awards, "Graham Norton, Dara O'Briain, Piers Morgan, Al Murray and Jimmy Carr are also apparently in the running for the job."

A quick note to Michael Grade: If this story turns out to be true, and Piers Morgan is ever chosen for such a role, we will NEVER watch ANY ITV channel ever again. No matter how enticing your programming might become, even if TV Burp is broadcast as frequently as Emmerdale, it would be a matter of principal. ITV would be dead to us.

A quick note to Piers Morgan: You're rubbish. No-one actually likes you. It's worth mentioning at this point that there are a lot of celebrities often lazily dubbed as "celebs we love to hate", but when they finally shuffle off this mortal coil, like Jeremy Beadle, everyone feels a genuine sense of loss that their talent really had gone unappreciated whilst they were still around. Celebrities such as Paul Daniels and Jimmy Hill are likely to fit into this category once they reach the great departure lounge. You however are going onto the other pile. The one with all the racist comedians and murderous dictators. Yes, Pol Pot does count as a celebrity. If Piers Morgan counts as a celebrity, Pol Pot counts too.
