I watched an episode of Cowboy Trap this morning and both the Wife and I thought that Clive seemed to get on well with the Lady in the show.
I was unaware if Clive had a Wife/partner and just wondered if he and the Lady in the show had got together. A quick search and I found this thread.
If Clive was sacked purely because a few e-mails went back and forth between a Lady in an unshown show, then the BBC have turned into a complete joke.
They (the BBC) should have done something years ago when serious things were happening, not make an example of Clive for something that, on the face of it, was very trivial indeed.
