Isn’t the old Craig Doyle enough?

UTV’s Julian Simmons has revealed what the station should be looking for as its main presenter when it launches here: “A bit of personality, a bit of oomph, like a young Craig Doyle.”

Craig Doyle, by the way, is 43. And it’s even more surprising to hear this comment when you consider that Julian himself is 62.

Quite why UTV would want a “young Craig Doyle” down south is beyond me.

After all, they seem to be quite happy with an “old Craig Doyle” up north...
