Yes - my old showbiz chum and cheeky chappy de nos jours Jonathan Ross is back on the box tonight, following all that hoo-ha over SachsSexGate! BBC insiders tell me that he was on good form at the recording yesterday, despite every word being scrutinised by the D-G down.
Still, with reliably entertaining guests Stephen Fry and Lee Evans, along with Hollywood blockbuster Tom Cruise, what could go wrong? Although I do hear that he bottled out of asking our Tom the big question at the last minute. Something along the lines of: If you're not gay, why did you pick a name like 'Cruise'?
No worries about QI quizmaster Fry being out though. Back in his Cambridge days it was common practice for the young bucks, when asked whether they were on for a bevvie on a Saturday night, to respond gaily with the riposte: No, we're off for a Fry up!
