I remember him being in sarah jane and know he does do a lot of stage work which is good for him but not me,all this cowell shite or dancing on shite! I enjoyed his show with his different characters and I reckon my children would too. Maybe its an age thing that itv dont like/or a kiss cowells arse channel. Has russ abbot ever said why hes not on t.v as much.?
I'd imagine he's not on TV as much because he's considered a bit "passed it", and his act is seen as old fashioned now. But your right though , ITV is basically an extension of Simon Cowell's bottom these days.
