Matthew Wright always said to me that he would stop presenting The Wright Stuff when it stopped being fun. (I was the on-screen audience researcher from 2005-7).
Recently, it stopped being fun.
CH5's The Wright Stuff is to end after 18 years on screen as Matthew Wright is fed up with doing it now, poor sod. The show underwent a change of production company last year which has supposedly caused various behind the scenes problems.
I used to quite like phone in/topic daytime type shows, the BBC used to do one in the mornings, but Matthew Wright is not to my taste at all. Like a tv version of a Guardian writer, he is smug, pretentiousness and uber liberal and doesn't really represent what the majority thinks at all, although he always thinks he does. He also thinks he's always right.
Anyone a fan of his? Will you miss the show?
