Gosh, John - button it up
John Campbell has abandoned his tie. Bad move.
It sounds like the NZ Herald's resident entertainment rumour-hag has regurgitated the official TV3 press release:
Certainly host John Campbell appears to have been enjoying the outdoor life on his extended holiday looking "taut, tanned and terrific" with a new image on screen. Campbell has also dropped his trademark expensive ties. Mark Jennings acknowledged the open necked look was no coincidence and the plan was to keep the tie in the top drawer. He said the new look was tracking well with viewers.
Bollocks! It'll be "tracking" as poorly as a heroin addict's arm. Campbell is a geeky-looking skinny white dude and ought to dress appropriately.
