The Big Breakfast’s one-off return to our screens has gone down a storm with viewers, who are calling for it to make a full-scale comeback.
On Friday morning, the anarchic and chaotic daytime show was brought back for one day only, as part of Channel 4’s Black To Front initiative.
Throughout the day, Channel 4 will be highlighting Black talent both in front of and behind the camera, which began with TV presenter AJ Odudu and comedian Mo Gilligan taking over the reins of The Big Breakfast.
When the show ended, viewers hailed the show a triumph, with many calling for it to be reinstated to morning schedules full-time:
The biggest lie that white TV execs tell themselves is that Black talent (on and off screen) only appeals to Black audiences.
Look at the comments underneath this tweet. The best talent and programme makers will always be popular with the masses. Race is irrelevant. https://t.co/dfuvI9JALk
