"Time to smell the flowers and get a dog."

Colin Murray is the odds-on favorite to replace Nick, who has been off the show during the UK's most recent lockdown.

Bumping because after Colin Murray finishes his interim stint, the new permanent host is apparently...ANNE ROBINSON?

I'm aware she was playing a character on The Weakest Link - by many accounts, she's really nice off-screen - but still.

"That must be very boring, isn't it?" she blurted out.

"Yes."

"So why..."

"Except..."

"Yes? Except what?"

"Game shows. We quite like game shows."

I saw a lot of complaints online about Colin being too chatty and making inappropriate comments toward Susie and Rachel, so hopefully Anne will satisfy viewers who think the game needs more gravitas.
