SOCIETY is at a point where presenters of light entertainment television are regarded as wise sages, it has been confirmed.

28-year-old Stephen Malley said: “These people are in a million homes at once, they couldn’t do that if they weren’t special. Probably telly people are highly advanced space aliens.
“If Tim Lovejoy told me to cut my penis off I’d definitely do it.”
