Battle of the Unts, BBC2, Monday 19th January, 5.15pm
For the first time since we’ve known him Rob Warner has kept his gob shut about a story which should bring him great publicity. Why? Who knows. Maybe he got kicked off in the first couple of minutes. Maybe he won.hmmm, don’t think so, not unless all the questions were about King Arthur.
Whatever, it should be a laugh.
Originally Rob was auditioned to take part in a special extreme sports edition of The Weakest Link but the other athletes didn’t make the cut so Rob ended up in a normal programme.
What we do know is that Warner and Robinson got on very well, which is hardly surprising, they’re very similar characters. Over the top, larger than life, with a nasty streak which is hugely exaggerated for show.
Plenty of people who know him think Rob would make it on TV, Monday’s show is a chance to see how he comes across on camera.
Telly on, get the beers in we suggest.
