Wossy back in business fronting Friday Night With....

So Wossy's back in the presenting seat following his 3 months suspension for Sachsgate. But it doesn't look like his apology (to air tonight, BBC 1) was enough for the baying tabloid wolves who wanted blood - or at least some on-air sobbing.

Wossy instead trotted out the following apology: "There can’t be many viewers who aren’t aware this show hasn’t been on recently and the reason for its absence. I’m going to take this opportunity to apologise for what I said on the radio because being on the BBC and allowed this level of freedom to communicate with people is a great privilege. It’s something I’ve always enjoyed and I value enormously. In future I do intend to be more aware of the responsibility that comes with such a gift. But as the kids say, it was my bad, so I do apologise for any hurt or distress it has caused.”

....which sounds like a pretty textbook apology. So what if he stuck a couple of gags in about Russell Brand, or told guest Tom Cruise that he if he wanted more free time he should cause a scandal and get suspended from Hollywood for a few months. Isn't that what he was paid to do in the first place - take the piss and not mind it being taken back? Argh. Enough Sachsgate already!
