Terry Wogan’s knee

Monday, January 16, 2006 by

Terry Wogan’s new series,¬†Wogan: Now and Then¬†sounds brilliant. One aspect he won’t be resurrecting from his old BBC1 teatime show, however, is the knee-touching.

“That whole business used to drive me mad!” he says in interview. “It was the most irritating thing of all time. Of course, increasing numbers of PRs would say to the guests, ‘Touch Terry’s knee, everyone likes that’. When I’d see a hand reaching out, a cold fear would come over me. For God’s sake, get off!

“This time I’m going to make sure the seating arrangements are such that the guests are too far away to be able to reach me. We’ll have a bit of a hug to start, but apart from that there will be no contact whatsoever. “
