Television centre, the landmark West London home of BBC television in is to be sold in a bid to rid the station of Graham Norton.
The Corporation said that after all other attempts to end the 6 year relationship had failed, they have decided to send Graham to West Africa on the pretence that he will be filming for Comic Relief, during which time they intend to relocate to Manchester leaving no forwarding address.
Entertainment law specialist Paul Walker told us “Graham’s contract is watertight. Unless he fucks up royally on air there’s no other way to free the broadcaster of its liability”.
The BBC is said to have tried other techniques to end the relationship, including not returning Graham’s calls, de-friending him on facebook and spending increasingly more time with Alan Carr, however Graham has not taken the hint.
A spokesman for the BBC said “I know it sounds harsh, but sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind. Its not him, its us. Besides which he'll probably be better off with someone else, and there’s plenty more pebbles on the beach. This is not a decision we have taken lightly, I mean digging up the Blue Peter garden is going to be a major ball ache.”
