    I actually like the fact the guests are a little lesser known and different to every other show, it makes for more interesting viewing in my opinion.

    Glad he is returning!
    @ Barrie-They don’t have to be high profile clebrities to be worth while. However the Eagle and the Worm are the only ones I don’t know! The others are respected, implying they are D-listers is insulting!!
