WE CAN REMEMBER WHEN IT WAS JACK ROSENTHAL AND UNIVERSITY CHALLENGE ROUND HERE

ITV have issued a statement confirming that they do intend to see if they can drop their standards any lower, with the news that they're signing up the Osbournes to present a chatshow. Now, it's just possible that nobody at ITV had the presence of mind to try and get hold of a tape of Sharon's awful US daytime chatshow; or maybe every copy of that show has actually been burned; every guest and audience member hunted down; every last reference wiped. But even so: it's obvious Ozzy can't really do the sort of quick-witted chat that a talk show needs, and just a glance at Sharon's Asda spots ("keep putting those chippolaties on") or her co-anchoring of Sky's Oscars debacle ("if I can't think of anything to say to cut the guest off, I'll just cackle instead") should surely have provided the warning from history?

The only real reason we can think of for this project getting a green light is that it was part of the deal to get Sharon back on the X-Factor. But surely that's a price too high?
