OK a bit of a delayed reaction here, but a few weeks ago he covered for Simon Mayo on drive time Radio 2.

And he just came across as a bit of twat generally.

all a bit "I'm fucking awesome, and i'm gonna let you know it"

YABU he's hilarious!

00100001 Mon 13-Jun-16 13:53:57

just take the first few seconds of the show "basically, you're all fucking idiots and I'm hilarious"*

*I'm paraphrasing.

Nah he's reet is Richard.

A different league to that dickwad Evans.

I saw him on a train recently and he was fit

Ooh, I'd forgotten about Richard Bacon. I used to watch him on that tv programme he did. Big Breakfast was it? He's always been a bit full of himself.

YANBU , he took over from Simon Mayo on 5 live a few years back and he was terrible , didn't matter who he interviewed the conversation always ended up revolving around him .

I thought no one else had noticed!! What a twat - he is beyond full of himself. Far more than Chris Evans - and that is saying something!!

Yy Words

I stopped listening when he was on. It was dreadful.

Going to go against the consensus here but I really rate Richard Bacon, I ised to love his late night programme on 5Live back in the day. And Tony Livesy for that matter, he's great too.

Shelby1981 Mon 13-Jun-16 15:19:09

can't bear him!!!

BertrandRussell Mon 13-Jun-16 15:22:37

I've never forgiven Radio 5 for replacing Simon May with him.

Interesting that he's back locumming on the BBC after all his "take America by storm" talk...........

No one mention blue peter, of course.

SheSparkles Mon 13-Jun-16 15:33:25

YANBU all he spoke about was himself and how he was shmoozing with slebs in the US

Didn't hear that but I did hear an interview he did on Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre podcast this year.

I thought he came across alright, was quite funny and self aware.

00100001 Mon 13-Jun-16 15:40:09

goodness yes sparkles! It's all like "yeah, I'm mates with X" and "when I was in this exclusive members only club, I met so and so, and now we're best buds"

annoying.

supersoftcuddlytoys Mon 13-Jun-16 15:40:10

I agree, Bacon's a knob. I heard him trying to defend this man on his radio show who had many children being debated by a woman who is worried about over population. He just couldn't, he was reaching for words and trying to be all philosophical. What a pillock!

Itslikeyoureadmymind Mon 13-Jun-16 15:45:49

You are so nbu! I hate him. I love Simon Mayo and really enjoy my drive home from work, then I turn on the radio and wank bucket himself is there, talking about how amazed he was to meet Sam Cam...

Musicinthe00ssucks Mon 13-Jun-16 15:55:10

I once saw him driving around Archway in a convertible like he fucking owned it (just after his Blue Peter nose candy scandal) he comes across like an arrogant twat.

00100001 Mon 13-Jun-16 16:54:47

I'm pleased to have found my fellow bacon-haters grin

Queenbean Mon 13-Jun-16 16:56:14

He got sacked from Blue Peter for being caught taking coke didn't he?

I thought you meant the Norfolk MP blush
