Matthew Wright has announced that he’s decided to leave his TV discussion programme.
The show has been a mainstay of Channel 5’s daytime output for almost 18 years. The broadcaster has said the show will continue.
So who should replace Matthew Wright and what should the show be called to keep the pun title tradition going?
We take a (firmly tongue-in-cheek) look at the possible runners and riders.
We apologise for the puns in advance
The Wright Stuff
Presenter: Jessica Wright
Would need minimal branding changing for Channel 5, and Jessica’s brother Mark (or even former footballer Ian) could easily stand in without upsetting the marketing team.
The Best Show on TV
Presenter: Calum Best
Could be an ideal vehicle for former Celebrity Love Island Contestant Calum, and researchers would love answering the phone with ‘You’re through to the Best Show On TV!’
The Daly Show
Presenter: Tess Daly
Channel 5 might have to increase the days it is broadcast to include Saturdays and Sundays. And Bank Holidays. Just to keep the gag going. But could be a small price to pay.
The Real McCoy
Presenter: Simon McCoy
The BBC News Channel presenter might well welcome the chance to host a programme where he’d be freer to make his views known on things like royal pregnancies.
Presenter: John Sergeant
The former Strictly sensation could combine his analytic news skills honed as ITV News’s political editor with lighter topics as he inspects a panel of guests views on the news agenda.
Presenter: Kit Harington
Game of Thrones star Kit Harington, in full costume, could highlight the day’s biggest headlines while his panel of guests criticise his selections with ‘You know nothing Jon Snow!’
