Tom Conti tells BBC we're his favourite
I was minding my own business on Sunday morning, doing the washing-up from the night before.
As is my want, I had Radio 4 on – tuned to Broadcasting House.
As usual they had a panel of celeb newspaper reviewers on. Somehow Paddy O’Connell, for it was he, fell to asking the panel: “what’s the best thing on the television?”
Quick as a flash, one of the panellists, the eternally rewarding Tom Conti, chimed, “Channel 4 News”.
It was followed by what seemed to me a slightly awkward silence, though not in my household!
