Gordon has a detail from the Williams/Ross interview that hasn't been in other reports:
"The differences [between Take That and Williams] we've had have just melted away.
"I celebrated by getting a Take That symbol tattooed on my right arm."
Gary! Gary! Look what I done... I done a tattoo off your logo and it's a proper one, with ink and everything. It's not like a transfer, like the other one I had done. Let me back in the band and I'll have your face done on my tummy. Pleeeeeeeeeaaaaasse, Gary.
From Williams to Walliams. Gordon has done an exclusive interview with David Walliams (it's quite hilarious, too - if you can ss the words "to read the whole of this exclusive interview, buy today's Sun newspaper" without giggling, you're made of stone.
Walliams has something to say about the current over-reaction of people to some jokes:
"This debate has always happened - 'Are comedians going too far?'
"Richard Pryor in the 1970s, Monty Python and Life Of Brian. The comedian's role has always been edgy.
"The idea that we want comedians to be on message, to be saying the right things - well, that's pointless."
Put through Gordon's filter, though, this becomes:
David Walliams on comedy's PC plague
Over the last couple of weeks venomous criticism from the politically-correct brigade has been aimed at other brilliant British comics accused of overstepping the mark.
Gordon, you really think the Mail - who started the whole Sachs thing and ushered in the new climate - are "politically correct"? Do you really think the people who didn't get the joke about the Queen and Phil on Have I Got News For You were complaining because they were "politically correct" and not merely confused and outraged from the Shires?
Still, interesting to see that The Sun hates this "brigade" and their venomous criticism. I guess Gordon is thinking of stuff like this:
Lately we've had Frankie Boyle attack Olympic gold swimmer Rebecca Adlington for having a face like someone looking in the back of a spoon.
Jimmy Carr then had a laugh at the expense of our injured soldiers.
Even our maimed boys could still kick your butt, Jimmy.
David Mitchell from the Peep Show thought a joke about girl-in-the-attic Anne Frank would get him some cheap laughs.
Inevitably, yes - that's from The Sun. Smeato's column, in fact.
Smeato's column is worth a read, by the way, for this wonderful example of what happens when you don't read back your own copy:
Like Walliams, Rod and Emu were notorious for jumping on folk.
They thought twice though when The Big Yin eye-balled them both with the deadly warning: "I'll break its neck - and your f***ing arm."
Now that's funny.
Morecombe And Wise used to entertain more than 20million telly viewers - more than The X Factor could ever hope for.
And they never felt a need to swear or be cruel.
So it's funny to threaten to break the arm of an elderly children's entertainer, and funny to swear while you're doing it, but not funny to be cruel or swear. They should let him write the BBC Editorial Policy guidelines.
