Christ, don't update the site for three years then along come two MASSIVE news items in two months.

Basically:

Big Breakfast House. For Sale

Yes our beloved home is currently available for viewing. Sold for around £800,000 in 2003 following the end of the original run of The Big Breakfast, and an arson attack, the sale price of nearly £6million represents a remarkable return on the buyer's investment.

Obviously they lucked out when the UK Government decided that their new neighbour would be the 2012 Olympic Stadium - no doubt regenerating a considerably rundown area of London.

Rightmove's photos show the results of the incredible make-over Lock Keepers Cottage received once the show went off-air.

How this effects the likliehood of the House's use for the forthcoming reboot of the show remains up for speculation.

Smoke us a kipper, we're back for Breakfast


Channel 4 has announced that it is rebooting its iconic morning show The Big Breakfast after an 18-year hiatus, with BAFTA-winning British comedian Mo Gilligan hosting a one-off special.

Gilligan, who won a BAFTA for Channel 4’s The Lateish Show With Mo Gilligan, said: “Like so many of us, I loved The Big Breakfast and I am so grateful to be asked to host this special event, particularly as part of such a hugely thrilling and history-making day for British television!”

The revival will form part of a Black Takeover Day in 2021, during which the British broadcaster will mark a year since the international protests and debates sparked by the killing of George Floyd on May 25.

ITV Studios will produce The Big Breakfast revival after the show was originally made by Charlie Parsons’ production company Planet 24. Channel 4 promised to recapture the show’s anarchic spirit and said it will be reimagined through an “unashamedly Black British lens.”

We'll have more news as we get it!
