Champagne corks popped at George Best's favourite watering hole, Blackpool's Yates Wine Lodge, when it was announced that the football legend was to be the new BBC director general.
The BBC decided that the new boss had to be totally different from the former, disgraced leader, Greg Dyke.
Following the popularity of ‘reality' shows, the BBC decided that their new leader would be picked by the public in a new show in which failed celebrities could eat, drink and just be their normal selves.
The show, called ‘I'M A DRUNK, IMMORAL CELEBRITY - SO GIVE ME SOME MONEY' was a huge success.
Judith Bird, who produced and directed the show, was enthusiastic about the public's response.
‘We had a huge problem in picking the most suitable celebrities', she confided.
‘You wouldn't believe just how many sad, failed people there are out there in ‘luvvie-land'.
‘But in the end dear George romped home with a majority of 20 million votes.' She enthused.
Mr Best was unavailable for comment, but his bar manager informed Spoof reporters that he would make a statement as soon as he sobered up
