The Government has announced that the current star of the long running TV drama ‘The Prime Minister’ is to step down due to poor ratings. The role will be taken over by a new younger actor from May and it’s hoped this will inject some much needed action into the show.
The role currently played by Scottish actor Gordon Brown has left fans feeling it has lacked direction since popular heartthrob Tony Blair stepped down in 2007. At the time fans were surprised that rather than have the PM regenerate as was normal, his assistant would merely take over without any fanfair.
Favourite David Cameron has made no secret that he feels eminently qualified to play an arrogant, overzealous character; popping up everywhere telling us all how to run our lives and save the world. Outsider Nick Clegg is thought to be a bit lightweight for such a big show but this exposure might lead to a role in the BBC soap ‘Doctors’.
Older viewers are hoping for a return to the shows hayday when the eccentric jelly-baby eating Margaret Thatcher made it one of the most popular shows on TV.
