Oh for goodness sake! He really thinks it's his show when JW is on! Please, please can JW be on with another newsreader, one that doesn't sing, or laugh inanely at everything? Deadly is just embarrassing.

It can't be coincidence that it's always Deadly on news duty for the entire fortnight when JW is doing breakfast. Someone must have decided that's the way it's to be. Who do you think? Deadly or Johnnie?

Probably both, but it's too much. I'm on Classic FM today, far more relaxing than the Alan Dedicoat show. I wonder how many others have turned away, some perhaps permanently? Yesterday's "Deadlioke"was the last straw!

Unless I'm mistaken, Deadly decides who does when as senior newsperson.

Pesronally, I can't wait for Boggy to be back on breakfast.

Have to disagree,
I think Johnny and Deadly are great fun and really make my working morning more enjoyable.
Don't worry it's only 1 more day till the humourless and totally dull Lynne Bowles dominates the Wogan show, now that's what I call boring

I think LB is fine when with Ken but I think she is too much in awe of Terry. I really like her banter with Ken.

I must admit deadly does seem to go completely nuts when Johnnie is on. I like the bloke but it does get a bit much, I have to turn off the singing

Why does he think he should "sing" over Eric & Ernie?

Just plain wrong.

I've got to agree, I could do without Boggy and Deadly thinking they are funny or entertaining.

Terrys show seemed a lot better today when he was doing the show all by himself. Smile

I like Voice of the Balls. I think Johnnie and him are funny when they are together. Thats how Breakfast shows should be. Marsh and Nove are also good with Wogan.

Well it wouldn't do if we all liked the same things, but...Deadly is a crashing bore, and a ubiquitous one at that! Surely other "voiceover artistes" are available?

I like Deadly with JW in the mornings, it cheers my day up to listen to them!
Prefer Bobbie to the Bowler, she sounds a nice person.
