When not harassing Manuel from Faulty Towers cheeky-chappy TV presenter Jonathan Ross likes nothing more than to sit down with a nice cup of tea and play a bit of Mario Kart on his Wii. Listeners to his Radio 2 podcast will be used to hearing good old Wossy excitedly babbling about his adventures in the mushroom kingdom to some confused B-list celebrity who is over in the UK promoting a terrible rom-com that they secretly feel ashamed for appearing in.
Wossy’s love for all things Nintendo has gone one step further now though as he revealed on his Twitter page recently. He has actually adorned the tiles in his office with pixel art of his beloved Mario and the mighty 1up mushroom. Perhaps on days when he can’t come up for a witty line for one of his shows he looks upwards to Mario for inspiration?
This takes me back to when I was 13 and I persuaded my best mate to colour the tiles on his bedroom ceiling with felt tip pens to resemble Tetris blocks. He got as far as finishing one whole Tetramino before he got bored and gave up!
