F**k Off, I'm Ginger

Those of you who, like me, read The Guardian will have seen Gareth McLean's review of a programme schedule for broadcast in half an hour from now.

Hello, sailor"Hard as it might be to believe, but there are philistines who don't appreciate the beauty of redheads. They don't see the allure of milky skin dusted with freckles or the pulchritude of the carrot-topped (Rita Hayworth, Damian Lewis, Catherine Tate?). And this, despite the best efforts of Titian, the Pre-Raphaelites and T'Pau's Carol Decker. Comedian Dan Wright, as ginger as they come, explores the senseless stigma attached to his brethren, which dates back to the Bible. Judas, apparently, was ginger."

I'm very proud to be associated with these wonderful people, whatever they were famous for.

Tough luck on you peasants, I'm afraid. It's on BBC3 so you need a proper digital pay-TV service to view it, not just the government free handout analogue service.

God, you look gorgeous Luke! Obviously the photos of yourself that you've posted before do you no credit. You should pose like that more often. The sun is glistening in your hair and you really look like you're worth it...

Actually BBC3 is available on Freeview. You don't need to pay anything extra.
