I'd much rather have Zoe Ball rather than Tess Daly, can't say I've noticed her babbling at high speed, she has her own style, I guess it suits some better than others. 

Don't think it would put people of watching the programme either way, I couldn't stand Bruce Forsyth but I just turned him out.

It's been interesting reading the comments, I hope we continue to have the option of 'traditional' and modern forms.

I totally agree with KT53 regarding catalogues, I find it so much easier to peruse the pages of a real catalogue rather than the online version.

As I delight in thumbing through the seed catalogues I got to wondering how much longer the ' traditional' paper version will continue.

I'm no Luddite, I love to use the internet for research but by the same token I then like to print off a hard copy for reference. 

Similarly with books, I can see the benefits and the logic behind e readers but I'd much rather hold a book to read.
