Michael McIntyre apologizes to viewers as new BBC show The Wheel ends in disaster


Michael McIntyre said he had had the “worst night of my life” when his new game show The Wheel ended in disaster.
The Wheel sees celebrities helping contestants make money by answering trivia questions.

But the show ended with an outcome the bosses never predicted – none of the contestants won anything.

Michael said in astonishment: “This show is supposed to boost the morale of the nation, it’s worse than Newsnight!

“It’s so depressing! I prefer to watch a Prime Minister’s briefing!

“We never thought that no one would win! Maybe it happened in a meeting, and then we were like “Naa”.

“Once in four, three times?” Naa. And look at us now, a bunch of losers. ”

He also couldn’t believe how well celebrities, including radio presenter Tony Blackburn, had performed, reports The Mirror.

He continued, “I am so horrified. Tony lost his job because he was too embarrassed with his questions.

“Maura cannot go back to Ireland.

“It was the worst night of my life, I never speak to anyone here again.

“It says on the autocue ‘Thanks to celebrity pundits’, but I don’t think I should read that one. ”

Meanwhile, Maura Higgins has been accused of shaming her native Ireland during the match.

She was called in to help competitor Barry with the question, “Geographically speaking, which Irish county would it be most accurate to say ‘It’s a long way to Tipperary’? ”

The options were Limerick, Donegal, Cork or Dublin, and Maura, who is from County Longford, was completely bewildered.

“I will be ashamed of my life, I will never be sent back to Ireland!” Maura said.

Barry chose Donegal but that was incorrect, and he lost his spot in the series and £ 10,000 after playing amazingly well almost until the end of the series.

He was absolutely taken aback, and Maura was speechless, looking mortified.
