Agree totally. Breakfast is woeful and is only watched because ITV is worse.They all need a re-vamp. Rachel is far too busy,(Countdown and The Gadget Show), to want to sit next to a sad old g*t who should be pensioned off. AND while I,m moaning...why do the BBC persist in minority descrimination? Are you a one-eyed negro dwarf? Come to the BBC and we will employ you ahead of English graduates who look great and speak English!
