Watching the National Television Awards last night when the prize category "Star Travel Documentary" turned up.
Gosh, I thought. We really are in the proper 21st Century when there is a whole set of programmes about travel to the stars.
Sadly, it turned out to involve the tired old TV format of taking a Middle Aged Comedian (St Stephen Fry, Billy Connolly, Gordon Ramsey, Griff Rhys Jones, etc) and giving them a free holiday with a film crew which turns into an 8 week series.
Stephen Fry was so excited to win that he (a) turned up, (b) almost wet himself and (c) broke his Twitter silence. Here are his last two Tweets:
"Lordy lordikins, I won. Most lovely & surprising & too too blush-making. If you voted, I adore you & want to lick you everywhere xxxx "
"Oh gracious. I'm in a big emotional puddle. Simultaneously as happy as can be but also oddly disposed to burst into tears. I'm an old silly "
You've got to love him. No, really.
