TELEVISION / Tabloid TV
Wednesday 04 August 1993
Breakfast television rivalry continued when ITV employees were barred from appearing as guests on The Big Breakfast unless they had already appeared on GMTV; The Big Breakfast team was meanwhile enjoying its comparative success until Chris Evans was vomited on by a cameraman when broadcasting live from a helicopter.
There were changes in stars' shapes: Esther Rantzen confessed that she was overweight as a teenager, Robbie Coltrane revealed that he has lost six stone since Christmas, and Burt Reynolds was reported to be shrinking by an inch a year due to injuries received when playing American football when he was younger.
Elsewhere, the BBC rescued This Is Your Life, the show ditched by ITV, and signed Michael Aspel to front three successive series.
