Who better, who ever better?

I knew Bill Turnbull was becoming a star when my mum (her again) said, during the edition of Strictly Come Dancing where he’d knackered his ankle and was looking ill, “oh, time to go home to your bees, Bill”.

So where now for the likeable freewheeling Breakfast anchor? Surely he’s in line for some kind of “promotion”, after all, it was Strictly Come Dancing that really launched Natasha Kaplinsky (and proved that nobody really likes Fiona Phillips). Man cannot live by being second banana to Dermot Murnaghan alone, so what do we see in store?

First off I’m seeing Bungalow Bill, a property restoration show where Bill helps a punter do up a one-storey house. Plenty of scope for his trademark wry asides and knowing references (“hmm, plenty of room for a beehive here!”).

How about some more ideas, as sensible or as blatantly improbable as possible?
