Johnathon Ross is to present a new ITV show, insiders have announced. Titled "Ross's Rollicking Rock and Roll Revival Revue", the show will be seen as a positive step in the 49-year-old's rehabilitation after the "Sachsgate" affair.
ITV bosses, always ahead of the game, have also signed Toyah Wilcox to head the cast of "Super Soccer Success Stories (sponsored by Simpson's Sausages)" for their summer schedule on Sundays. Other programmes will include remakes of "On the Buses", "Noel's House Party" and "Miami Vice" (set in Devon this time) and an as-yet-secret reality show - inside the Hadron Collider!
Michael Grade is (despairing) 62.
