“Chewdren in Nade Speshoe” on the BBC Telly

How on earth did Nick Knowles get a job at the BBC? He just can’t speak properly.

(It's supposed to be 'Children in Need Special')

Can we break it to him that his schtick is as dull as dishwater while we're at it?

Still he has a point. Not nice but people with speech impediments shouldn't be chosen as presenters/announcers.

For reading the news, probably not. But it's an accent, not a speech impediment.

Anthony16 - 14 Nov 2012 14:20:48 (#9 of 168)

Never heard him. Where is the accent from then?

Awite, "Speshoe".

I'm just gonna have to send him a copy of my last C&D CD so he can get it right.

I suspect that gorblimey supremacist Knowles posts in here under the name n00bslayer

I used to see mr Knowles around Bristol. He dressed very carefully. Like he had a season ticket on the other bus.

I'm sure his wife will be delighted with your insight there.
