Gordon in the morning: (2) His masters voice

Talking of The Sun, here's an interesting little bit from the related items column on the right of the showbiz pages:

Ooh, that BBC - spending twenty two million quid on a series despite people not watching it.

Except, the story isn't actually about recommissioning in the face of "a ratings slump" at all:

Fans feared it would be dumped after the first series suffered an embarrassing ratings slump, despite the efforts of stars such as Tom Jones.

But a revamp has seen the latest — the second in a two-year deal with creator John de Mol — consistently pull in more than seven million viewers.
Not that the blurb is deliberately misleading. Oh no no.

Will this do, Mr Murdoch, sir?
