Thanks to the rugby this is exiled to a hopeless slot to better reflect its unimportance in the grand scheme of things, with its irritating habit of making accusations about programme makers’ incompetence and then not bothering to check why they’re doing it. The annual moans about Strictly being too silly here again last week, but it’s not a dancing competition, it’s light entertainment, and if people wanted just endless dancing they’d still televise the World Ballroom Championships.

Creamguide's Pick of the Day
Top of the Pops
Thursday, 19.30, 00.00, BBC4
Well, many congratulations to Startrax for managing to be the least interesting performers on a programme that also featured Tony Banks from Genesis. If anyone wants to know why studio groups usually stay in the studio, that’s exhibit A. More visual splendour from Aneka, joined by a bewigged Legs & Co (mmm, brunette Sue and Lulu) and then even joining the conga to see the show out. We’ve skipped another week here so a few repeats, plus another sodding medley, but all good fun.
