Adrian Chiles has quit the BBC after a ‘dramatic falling-out’ over his reduced role on the channel’s tea-time tossbag of nonsense ‘The One Show’.

Chiles has quit the Beeb after hearing of plans to give DJ Chris Evans the Friday evening episode of the daily magazine show.

The 43-year-old presenter has signed a £1-million-a-year deal with rivals ITV that will see the avid West Brom supporter fronting their World Cup coverage in the summer, and take the chair for next season’s Champions League, England home internationals and FA Cup action.

I couldn’t really care less about Chiles’ career, The One Show or ITV’s sub-par coverage of anything (this post was more or less just an excuse to post a picture of the lovely Miss Bleakley) but I will say one thing…

Surely now it’s time to get James Richardson on MOTD2?
