Mastermind – more exciting than you think
Good to read the great John Humphrys happily acknowledging just how sexy his presentation style is on BBC’s Mastermind. In an interview for The Guardian about celebrity breakfasts, Humphrys says he has two breakfasts per day. His first (“a large bowl of fruit, muesli and yoghurt, and a banana”) before Radio 4’s Today programme and then another one later on.
“When I get home,” he says, “I have toast with Marmite or blackcurrant and apple jam made by a nice lady who comes when I do Mastermind.”
Have to say, I’ve always thought Mastermind was absorbing viewing but nowhere near as exciting as Humphrys’s ‘nice lady’ evidently finds it.
