Well done ITV1. Since the late lamented passing of Fox TV’s Man V Beast, a show broadcast on ITV2 and still haunting my dreams, I have been disappointed by the quality of entertainment on our commercial channel. I should not have doubted. This evening saw a masterclass in entertainment – Vernon Kay presenting a police officer and boxing champion Amir Khan hammering nails into a lengthy piece of wood. I sat enthralled as nail after nail buckled under the sustained hammering from the fast hands of Bolton’s finest.
Thanks to Mr Grade and all involved. Just when I feel the bottom of the barrel has been reached you manage to pull up a few shards of wood and find a further level beneath.
