Tough man to please, my father. If I get a "it was fine" about a programme or owt else I’m doing, that’s heady praise indeed. He considers it his mission to keep my feet on the ground (not that it’s necessary – I’m hypercritical of everything I do anyway, so my feet are firmly buried a couple of feet below).
However, as a good Northern man, what he has always said is: "You’ve only made it when you’re on Coronation Street!" So thank you to former MSE team member Natasha, who tweeted me to point out the following clip…
(Listen to the TV in the background of the Grimshaws talking in the first scene)
PS. I think the clip that’s playing is an interview I did on whether you should repay your student loan – which is from a good, long while ago. So I presume the producers buy up stock footage of GMTV/Daybreak to use in the background.
