Tweet of the Week – Mocking Madeley

Alleged shoplifting tellybox twerp Richard Madeley is turned into a lookalike of inept comedy character broadcaster Alan Partridge

Yesterday on Twitter, an animated image did the rounds in which the incompetent and tactless television and radio presenter Richard Madeley morphed into looking just like the incompetent and tactless television and radio presenter Alan Partridge.


Both socially inept and both capable of offending their guests, the GIF circulated was brilliant in that both mouses-not-men have inflated senses of importance and fame. Equally, both shameless self-promoters are clearly bewildered that their audiences have an inability to recognise their self-created statures.


This morning, also on Twitter, the “cringeworthy” drunken old sop Judy Finnigan’s husband was once again trending. This time, Romford, Essex born ‘Madman Madeley’ was under fire over yet more stupid remarks about COVID-19 on ITV1’s Good Morning Britain. One user somewhat generously described him as “silly” and “daft” whilst another claimed him to be a “pompous prat” who’d “put them off their breakfast.” They are spot on and it is time that this twerp was taken off the telly.


Richard Madeley’s ‘finest’ moments

On his son’s wedding

“There’s been so much angst about it… It’s been so choppy, but, yes, he got married and now we’ve got a daughter-in-law.”


In conversation with President Clinton

“I know what it’s like to be wronged by the press. I was once accused of shoplifting. Unlike you though, I knew I was innocent.”


Of women

“I’ve never met a single woman who’s happy with the way she looks, except Jordan, although I’ve never met her.”


On elephants

“So, are you telling me elephants are not born evil?”


To a man crying after paramedics saved his life

“Stop crying! This is supposed to make you happy! Anyway, after the break, the biggest dog in the UK. And he really is big. Don’t miss it!”


In Nostradamus-like fashion on coronavirus

“We are being duped… [They are trying to] put the fear of God into the public. A great reckoning is coming.”


On lockdowns

“There’s no point in running away and hiding from the virus.”


Of old women skipping

“There’s not many better things than seeing an older woman skipping.”


Of wanting to be black

“I hope when I’m reincarnated I come back black because you age better.”


To Keira Knightley

“Can we get some make up please, get Keira looking like a crack whore, she’d make a good crack whore.”


Of an autistic teenager

“The thing with Daniel [Wakeford, a ‘star’ on Channel 4’s Undateables] is, he has autism but is very intelligent and as we can see extremely talented. Has Daniel always been autistic?”


To a caller

“I understand you have a little lad of 12. Is it a boy or a girl?”


In another Alan Partridge-esque moment earlier this month, Judy Finnigan’s husband banged on about the dangers of quicksand. Naturally, he had to make personal reference and claimed: “It got me once… More of that later.”
Richard Madeley Diana Princess of Wales 1
In July, the ‘Dorian Gray of Daytime Telly’ was mocked as looking like the new person portrayed in the new Diana, Princess of Wales statue. At the time, the all-round berk was also lambasted after claiming he “suffered from PTSD after his son’s wedding.”
Richard Madeley Ali G
‘Deranged Dicky’ once dressed up as Ali G to present ‘This Morning.’ It was later voted “one of the worst moments in television history.”
Alleged shoplifter Madeley’s ‘mummy’ wife, Judy Finnigan, is best known for quaffing, flashing her boobs and falling off sofas. In October 2014, she inexcusably defended a footballer later convicted of rape by saying: “The rape wasn’t violent… He didn’t cause any bodily harm to the person… She had far too much to drink.”
