He's Started, So He'll Finish...

Stuart Bailie | 18:05 UK time, Wednesday, 4 January 2012

How impressive was Neil Hannon on Celebrity Mastermind? A champion aficionado of the Frasier sitcom, perhaps in response the call of his inner Niles Crane. But he was also very nippy on the general knowledge and once again, making a positive contribution to the Alzheimer's Society cause. The deserved winner on the night.

While I admired the young, precocious Hannon, I think I like the evolving version more. He's full of ideas and wears his erudition well. There's a dose of humility in the gig now and he's got a cool portfolio of talents: pop songs, TV themes, sporting anthems, orchestral swoonage and musical theatre. A credit to the place.
