We Woz Robbied: Williams And Ant ‘n’ Dec’s TV Fix

They are the happy winners of a British Comedy Award for their Saturday night show Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway. It’s 2005, and the Peoples’ Choice Award – voted by you, the People – is theirs.

But they haven’t won, not really. It’s just that Robbie Williams wants to present them with an award so ITV have fixed the vote to ensure they win and that Williams enlivens another televised showbiz AGM.

It’s the Star’s front-page news: “ANT ‘N’ DEC TV AWARD FIXED – Show is fiddled to keep Robbie Williams happy.”

The pair have returned their prize, but the fear is that Williams will now go into a deep sulk and exact a terrific and terrible revenge by releasing more songs.

One man, one vote, say we. And if that man is Robbie Williams, then so be it.

But the people who vote for awards on TV shows, and who get the TV they deserve, want Catherine Tate to get the gong.

“Am I bovvered?” asks the Times on its front page, words hung over Tate’s head, words taken from one of her catchphrases.

And to employ another of her bon mots, we’d say she couldn’t give a f***…
