Come­back Corner

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - FOOD & DRINK -

DJ Tony Black­burn,

69, takes on a rare act­ing role this week, play­ing him­self in an episode of the BBC3 prison com­edy Dead Boss. When HMP Broad­marsh holds a singing con­test for in­mates, Tony is the judge (right). The first voice on BBC Ra­dio One in 1967, Tony has never been afraid to risk ridicule on TV, dress­ing as a sheep on Harry Hill’s TV Burp in 2006. His vic­tory on the first ever I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2002 (left) helped re-estab­lish him in the pub­lic con­scious­ness. He has pre­sented Pick Of The Pops on BBC Ra­dio Two on Satur­days since 2010. Dead Boss, Thurs­day, 10.30pm, BBC3.
