Most phone-in shows I've listened to over the years seem to attract their share of regular callers. Some are "marmite" characters and others you just know the voices you've heard before.

At the moment he calls under the name "Sterling from Swiss Cottage"

I think he stopped being heard under the name George when they tried to cut down on the regulars a few years ago.

Very true.

I would also be interested to see Loose Women's figures during School Holidays - I suspect they may see a dip then anyway.

Not your blood pressure meds though - you'll need them when listening to Victoria ;-)

The reason I was being so helpful if that I know people who proclaim to hate Victoria seem to comment on her more than those who like her or (like me) are indifferent to her.

Anyway as Station ID...

The figures aren't showing they are going to LBC though.

Not sure if it indicates he doesn't want to be in Salford - I imagine his commitment to presenting the football for ITV pre-dated any contract for this new 5Live show.

Bad timing that the show...

I was under the impression it was a LBC production and Sky was merely relaying it. Therefore it was LBC's choice of presenter - and Nick Ferrari is the obvious choice there.
