Anyone know if there are any plans to replace CJ on Eggheads? Will they just carry on without him or replace him via another series of Are You An Egghead?

Thank goodness for that. I may now watch the show. His attitude really used to do my head in.

Thing is I don't think he pulled that off at all. I think he was aiming for 'eccentric' and 'I love to hate him' but in the end he was irritating and boring - and he looked bored too.

You can tell that even Jeremy Vine was annoyed by him sometimes. I was too often like 'Oh, put your face straight. You're getting thousand in licence payers' for this; something you do as a hobby".

Apparently he's really nice in real life and it was a shame he didn't show his real life personality.

It was probably an act. However, he made Eggheads and it is a consistent success for BBC Two.

Not surprised he was losing his egghead status a bit lately as the contestant kept beating him

but the general premise is correct - I can't stand the show - and the eggheads get easier questions.

What acting? The arse? (Doh' I did read that after I posted)

I'll expect him to turn up in Emmerdale as Marlon's long lost brother soon then.

Does anyone remember him on the Channel4 decision making panel show Without Prejudice?

I loved that programme, shame it was short-lived.

He's not as bad as Judith. She must lose as twice as much as she wins, and even when she does win half her answers are guesses.

I like him best when he used to play keyboard for Sparks.

Yes remember that show and agree that is was a good one
Was always funny when they gave the money to the wrong
person who wasted it by buying a new watch/handbag etc.

C.J. will be missed. Whilst Kevin,Daphne,Pat and Barry are formidable-particularly Kevin- C.J,being the youngest,knew a lot about modern culture and music. He should be replaced by someone of about his own age-if someone in that age group can be found!
