I have done lots of telly work you know.
Abbott is pissing off to contest the Labour leadership and may not be back. This will automatically raise questions about the future of Michael Costello.
Abbott and Costello work well together and were funny in the early days but their brand of comedy is now a bit out of date.
That's not to say I would advocate replacing Portillo even though I kind of am. And if they were seeking a like-for-like replacement then we have a lot in common.
Basically, I am dying for one of my loyal readers to suggest me as a possible replacement to either of them in the comments to this post.
