    Default The Return of Jim'll Fix It

    Oddly, just after Sir Jimmy died, the BBC are reviving Jim'll Fix It... with Shane Ritchie as presenter. It's coming back for a one off this Christmas apparently.

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.

    It's broken already! Mind you, I'm usually wrong about this sort of thing and it'll be a massive success.
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    Shane'll sort it? (Actually, if Connery would host it, Sean'll Short It is even better) It's pointless resurrecting a brand that only works around the name of the man who it was based upon. What is the appeal of Jim'll Fix It without the Jim? This ain't frickin' Taggart.

    Who are the worst people who could host this show other than Shane Ritchie?

    "Alan'll Fix It. Children write in to have their wishes granted by family favourite Alan Rickman!"

    What about "Rix'll Fix It" hosted by Brian Rix, where every Fix It turns into a complete farce!

    "Silvio'll Fix It. In which former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi fixes it for young children, who happen to be female teenagers to have their wishes come true. Although most of their wishes seem to revolve around wanting to go to massive parties"

    Keef'll Fix It - Keith Richards gets people hooked on pharmaceutical grade skag.

    Given the army of Jimmy Saville impersonators out there, the casting is an outrage!
    Remember, just because Davros is dead doesn't mean the Dalek menace has been contained ......

    Thinking of potential Jims - there's Jim Davidson and Jimmy Carr. Both of whom would be absolutely splendid as the new Jim'll Fix It!

    Jimmy Carr: "Oh, that's your wish, is it? That's the one thing you want to come true in your life. The sole, single most important thing you'd ever want to do with your time on this planet and you want to meet Cher Lloyd. Oh very good."

    Jim Davidson: "That'll f***ing fix it!"

    If they need someone unknown to do it, they could get me to do it, and I'll present Sim'll Fix It!

    I reckon it would be the perfect show for Alan Partridge.

    It does sound like an Alan Partridge pitch, doesn't it? "Jim'll Fix It with Shane Richie and Jimmy Saville rendered in CGI!"

    I bet it'll be a mix of old fixes and new, with clips of Jimmy Saville to maintain the 'Jim' factor.

    They should bring back the 'This Is The Age of The Train' ads too, I loved those.

    Didn't they do something similiar the other year on Watch or something?

    Surely this type of program comes round every few years anyway. Isn't "Tonight's The Night" just Jim'll Fix It except they chickened out of calling it "John'll Fix It"?

    I think they should have got Jim Bowen in to host it.
