Along with the turning on of the lights in Oxford Street and the delivery of the tree to Trafalgar Square, the changing of the banner at The Richard Madeley Appreciation Society has, for the last decade, marked the official start of the Christmas season. What do you think of this year’s effort? Understated? I thought so too. The photographer tells me that Oddie was very truculent on the day of the photoshoot, refusing to don a fake beard. In comparison, the rest of the lads were in and out in next to no time.
I've had Christmas cards printed for all of my visitors but unfortunately I've lost your postal addresses. I'm really sorry about that. You needn't worry, however. So long as you send me your addresses, even if I miss the last Christmas post, I'll send Judy around to deliver them by hand.
