A CLEAN SWEEP ON BUZZCOCKS.

MARK who? Taking a break from Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC2, Monday) may have been a bad career move for Mark Lamarr, because they may not want him back.

Replacing him with guest presenters has been a revelation, reviving what was becoming a rather stale music quiz. Who knew that Ricky Wilson from the Kaiser Chiefs was such a natural TV presenter? Or that Huey Morgan from the Fun Lovin' Criminals was so funny?

Now comes another interesting choice of host - Dale Winton, who's at least 10 shades darker than team captain Bill Bailey. Perhaps he's taking the gig to show another side of himself and prove that, beneath all that smarm and charm, lies a sarcastic cynic with a barbed wit.
