Kind of inspired by THIS well-known video, my friend and I like to play a game of "Who Is Secretly An Absolute Shitter When The Cameras Aren't Rolling?"

We had some disagreements, but we mutually agreed that both Rolf Harris and Bruce Forsyth are just as charming as they appear; and Jim Davidson and Chris Tarrant are secretly complete arseholes. I can just imagine Davidson throwing his tea over an intern, can't you? "It's bladdy cold, you useless fackin' traht!!"

The jury is out on Noel Edmonds and Neil Buchanan. It could go either way.

So Pit. Pick a personality and let's discuss their twattiness (or lack thereof).


Disclaimer: this is all just pure unfounded conjecture. Lawyers, pls.

Piers Morgan without a doubt. But that's not a secret.

Sure, Morgan is slimy. But I reckon he's the same level of slimy off-camera.

I'm talking about tantrum-throwing, groupie-fondling Me, Myself and Irene-level split personality, but somebody that is universally loved because they're so good at acting nice on-camera.

No way, Dickinson is a just good old-fashioned English eccentric. I can imagine him having Friday chippy every week, and saying "ooh cheap as chips" every damn time just because the staff get a kick out it.

I know Dan Harmon's not really a TV personality, but I hear the guy is really tough to work with. Like he'd throw a fit in the middle of the writers room and everyone would just shrug it off as they're so used to it.


Brilliant guy, though.

Letterman and Jimmy Fallon. Not that Letterman seems like a great guy on camera but god he just seems like such an ass and Jimmy Fallon seems so ingenuine, like there's no way he's anything like that in reality.

Bale is a good guy though, he just wants his deserved privacy and professionalism.

I like his work, but everytime I hear him talk I just want to punch him.

He is and he talked shit about Drew Carey's hosting of the Price is Right. He's a terrible old man.

OK, we seem to have Noel Edmonds bang-to-rights. I knew there must've been a reason he didn't get any work after House Party, but I assumed it was because people were worried he'd try to force Mr Blobby into any show they pitched to him.

Thoughts on Buchanan? On the one hand:



What a cheeky chappy!

One the other hand: frustrated failed musician... forced into childrens TV... always worked alone... never got any more work after Art Attack...

It all points toward utter twatlord, but I just can't bring myself to believe it.

Yea. I mean, it was obviously way over the top, but technically he was right.

And I'm pretty sure he apologized.


Also the visiting the shooting victims without making a whole big media thing out of it was pretty sweet.

I can't exactly remember what the other guy did, but no need to attack the guy verbally for minutes.

my mom's cousin used to work behind the scenes on the Price is Right when he was still hosting.

according to her he's an absolute pig.
