Vernon Kay, the radio presenter who's best known for... well, to be honest, we're not entirely sure what he's best known for, has announced that his new Radio 2 show will be "more of the same."
Kay, who's been hosting various radio shows for over a decade now, has a reputation for being a bit of a bland, vanilla presenter with all the charisma of a beige sock. But despite this, he's somehow managed to carve out a semi-successful career in the world of radio, presumably by just being, well, there.
His latest venture, a show on Radio 2 that promises to be "funny, entertaining, and just a bit zany," has been met with a resounding "meh" from the general public.
"I mean, who cares?" said one listener we spoke to. "I'm sure Vernon's a nice bloke and everything, but his shows are always so forgettable. They're just... there, you know?"
Another listener expressed similar sentiments. "I've tried listening to Vernon's shows before, but I always end up switching off after five minutes. He's just so... beige. I need something with a bit more oomph to keep me interested."
Kay, meanwhile, seems oblivious to the underwhelming response to his latest project. "I'm really excited to be starting this new show," he said in a recent interview. "It's going to be more of the same, but with a few surprises thrown in. I think people are really going to enjoy it."
When pressed for more information on what these "surprises" might entail, however, Kay was characteristically vague. "Oh, you know," he said with a shrug. "Just some fun new segments, maybe a celebrity guest or two. Nothing too exciting."
Despite the lack of enthusiasm from the public, Kay's show is expected to debut to a reasonably sized audience thanks to the built-in listenership of Radio 2. However, it remains to be seen whether the presenter will manage to shake off his reputation for being a bit of a snooze-fest.
As one listener put it: "I guess we'll just have to tune in and see if he can surprise us. But honestly, I'm not holding my breath."
