Collins really isn't known for his work for the BBC. In any case, the BBC is a public service broadcaster. There should be a range of broadcasts catering for different tastes and needs, not just mine, or yours.

agree entiirely, which is why I watch George Galloway and Kelvin Mackenzie on Question Time. Collins used to be on Bbc 3 or 4 if i recall and i am sure he would not want to be remembered for that.

Andy Kershaw did time i think for stalking his ex wife.Hes back sponging off the licence fee, too.

He did the first series of a Strictly Come Dancing spin off on BBC 3 but got the boot as Brucie didn't get on with him. That said, the vast majority of his money was made from Channel 4/5/Sky.

The whole story is just wierd, odd as even thought he does annoy people, he did come across as a nice genuine bloke especially in the documentary stuff he did. Guess you can never tell what goes on behind closed doors.

He has a job as a DJ. Whilst it's quite a cushy number, how is it sponging exactly? :unsure:

Justin Lee Collins isn't the best advert for Bristolians, to be honest. All his programmes seem to be rubbish ideas extending to an hour.

Correct me if I am wrong but he hasn't been found guilty yet and we've only heard one side. That said it doesn't sound good.

True, but it is some pretty weird-sounding stuff.

True, I genuinely wasn't indicating he was guilty, but I guess even if this all the information given so far turns out to be false it still indicates a less than healthy relationship for the story to be told in the first place, which is more the point I'm getting at.

I can't think of anything that would be a good advert for Bristol.





Apart from the Sonics of course.

He should be in the dock for that ridiculous hairstyle alone. But with a beard too?

If this is a court case, how comes the paper can report detailed stuff? Is that usually the case? I thought secrecy was paramount with the jury, etc.

The judge can say what can and can't be reported outside court but the general rule is usually that if it's alleged in court or in papers presented to the court then it can be reported.

The slapping part is the line crossed. He has massive insecurities and needs counselling and some help. (speaking from experience of this but not as severe).i don't think his career will be over as if it wasn't for this thread I wouldn't have known.Point being it's not setting the world alight.
