Spicks and Specks
Can't say I am thrilled to hear this.
S & S was one of my fave shows and Adam, Alan and Myf were the main reasons why it was so good.
Won't be the same... sad.gif
What do you think?

hmmm, interesting. I do think it was getting really old and stale. As much as I liked Adam and co they did need to rest from it.

Another problem is the lack of a big talent pool to have on as guests. If it is going to be all the same regulars again and again I won't be switching back on.

I loved watching S&S. I'll probaly give it a chance, but wouldn't be surprised if it's not as good as it was with the original people.

Yes just saw this on FB. Got really excited, then read there will be hosts and captains sad.gif now not so  excited.

They will have to choose some pretty great new people to replace the oldies.

I agree with this.  we all love this show, we still watch the repeats 7pm every night if possible.

I saw a 'poll' yesterday of who the suggestions were to  host it, I can guarantee you, some of the suggestions will turn me off it instantly, some I am 50/50 about.

I bet Hamish Blake will be on it somewhere!  It won't be the same, but I'm prepared to wait and see before I make up my mind.

Nooooooo! It just would not work as well with anyone but Adam, Alan & Myf. I would probably watch it though just so I could have my daily old woman whinge.

I have mixed feelings too. It is one of my fave shows but it worked because the mix was so right.
