I haven't watched the show, but read an article in the paper today that said the "Cox Effect" is shooting up the sales of telescopes!
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

I don't get it Tony, what's funny about Cox as a surname ;)

He was on top form tho, loved the line where he said if you still didn't believe man landed on the moon then "switch over to ITV now - I don't want you!" :lol: :lol:

Particularly liked that a man was standing behind Brian wearing a t-shirt with the partially obscured message "Particle physics gives me a Hadron" Must be the Cox effect ;)
