He’s been doing shows on Absolute Radio during the Olympics from 5-7pm.
Awful, just awful. I remember him from when I was a kid on the TV, and even then not being impressed. He went away for at least 15 years but now he’s back. He was just the pits, his main gag seemed to be interviewing medal winners and repeating clips of tenuous innuendos again and again in his broken irritating voice. He even managed a few tumbleweed moments when even his co-presenter and production team were dumbfounded.
Is it just me? I don’t like Chris Moyles, but I can sort of see his appeal. I can let Chris Evans slide. With Vaughan, I’m driven straight past irritation to kicking the radio.
I used to think he was great on the Big Breakfast. Remember when all the tabloids had him down as being the ‘funniest man in Britain’ and everyone was raving about him, got a BBC chat show out of it – flopped. A sitcom on BBC 2 – Flopped.
Admittedly I haven’t heard him on Radio but I’m told he’s almost incomprehensible. Sounds like it’s been a long drawn out fall from grace.
