Simon quits

Simon Amstell has quit Never Mind The Buzzcocks! Can you believe that? Amstell has stated that he wants to concentrate on his stand-up after three years hosting the show. Apparently, BBC bosses are more than shocked. Amstell sent out a message to members of his mailing list on Friday night saying: "Here is some news, should you be interested in this sort of thing. I will not be hosting another series of the fun pop quiz, Never Mind the Buzzcocks. When I first took on the role, my only hope was to bring joy and laughter to the world and if I was lucky, put an end to war, disease and poverty. Now that I have achieved that, I plan to concentrate on my live work. Thank you. Please now continue to enjoy your life as best you can." It's looking rather likely that when the show returns for a new series, Simon will be replaced by a series of guests hosts. So who would be a good permanent replacement?
