Yeah, I've already read it and the Telegraph article a while ago and still it comes down to a case of do I believe him or not? I'm not sure if I do - the language he uses doesn't convince me -...

The 'Overnight' rating was 5.3m I believe, and also each TG episode normally gets between 2.5-3m views on iPlayer and is overwhelmingly the most requested show on iPlayer bar none. But I'm sure you...
