Matt Baker Promises To Stay Squeaky Clean On The One Show

Former Blue Peter presenter Matt Baker has assured us all that he won’t be following in the footsteps of Jason Manford in his new role as The One Show host.

The fact that Baker was obligated to issue this disclaimer is slightly amusing, what with him being possibly the most non offensive man on television, but hey, we all remember what happened to John Leslie…

Seemingly forgetting the children’s show’s most infamous disgraced employees (Leslie, not to mention Richard Bacon who was sacked after a cocaine scandal), Baker explained to The Sun why he won’t be going all bad on us any time soon, saying, “Blue Peter is a great training ground.

“I’m not out to cause controversy or offend anyone. It’s not me. The BBC hasn’t sat me down and had that chat with me. I’ve known them for ages. They know what I’m like. And I’m not trying to slip into Jason’s shoes. I’ll do it my way.”

He added: “I am not the kind of guy who goes out nightclubbing every night at all. With my family, that is where my priority is.”

As long as he steers clear of twitter, we’re sure he’ll be fine…
