Greg Davies leaves little to the imagination in leotard

Never Mind The Buzzcocks presenter Greg Davies left the panel open-mouthed after leaving little to the imagination in a skintight leotard.

Robert Mann, The Sun, 28th October 2021

I still can't get over the fact that Noel Fielding - such a brazen goth! - presents Bake Off. Last week he also returned as one of the team captains on Sky's fresh spin on the long-running music quizshow Never Mind The Buzzcocks, alongside new host Greg Davies, new team captain Daisy May Cooper (This Country) and regular contestant Jamali Maddix. The guests were Jade Thirlwall (ex-Little Mix), singer Anne-Marie and Mash Report comedian Nish Kumar.

If you want to feel old, watch a music panel show where no one recognises Buck's Fizz in the lineup section. Elsewhere, it was entertaining: Cooper, in particular, channelled her own rock star to the point where she started reminding you of everyone you've ever seen stealing other people's drinks in a backstage area. If I have one criticism, it's that the music content is now almost jarringly mainstream. With previous Buzzcocks personnel, you got the impression that they knew and cared enough about music to descend, if necessary, into an unseemly row about Fall lyrics. Comedy is crucial, but don't (completely) forget the music.

Review: Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Sky Max

They said it couldn't and maybe shouldn't be done. They did it and it worked. Welcome back.

Never Mind The Buzzcocks review

The music quiz is back from rehab, cleaned up and on Sky. Girls are finally allowed, too - though with a show this confused, they might regret smashing this glass ceiling.
