Chris from Liverpool has solved an abiding mystery of entertainment:
The main reason is that TV ratings are not recorded for programmes under 15 minutes in length.
Therefore televising the draw on its own (which would take about two minutes) would not have any ratings attached.
Putting a terrible programme around it probably shows quite accurately how many people are tuning in for the draw itself, as who in their right mind would sit through half an hour of Dale Winton hosting a mind-numbingly boring quiz show…except maybe Olly?
And people who love balls, Chris; let’s not forget them.
