Bill Oddie is a ray of sunshine

What a ray of sunshine that man is.

"Bill Oddie appeared on Breakfast with Kate Humble to talk about Autumn watch, yet had some words to describe the Daily Mail :) "

From The Independent:

Sparks fly at the BBC after a morning of grumpy guests
Viewers of the BBC Breakfast programme were treated yesterday morning to a delightful ding-dong between the presenter Bill Turnbull and professional bird watcher – and all-round grumpy person – Bill Oddie. Oddie was interviewed with his colleague Kate Humble at Poole harbour in Dorset to promote the new series of Autummwatch.

As the interview went on, he became increasing grouchy with Turnbull, blaming his faulty earpiece and bizarrely, the Daily Mail, which (despite recently serialising his memoirs) he derided as "total toss".

After five minutes of some fairly terse exchanges, Turnbull decided to wrap things up.

"I tell you what, Kate, if he happens to tip overboard on the way over to Brownsea Island, don't pick him out too quickly," he said. "Give me John Prescott any day."
