It’s been 15 years since John was a Saturday night favourite alongside Jim Davidson on Big Break, and today he explained how the hit BBC show saved his life.
John opened up about his history with gambling, minutes after Labour MP Tom Watson admitted on Good Morning Britain that his party’s 2005 Gambling Act failed the nation.
However, viewers were stunned by John’s appearance and dashed straight to Twitter to pay their compliments.
“Looked good John, looking forward to reading the book! See you at golf again next year,” enthused one audience member, as another agreed: “#GMB wow I didn’t recognise John Virgo.”
A third wrote: “Great to see @jvofficialjv on @GMB just now. Love John Virgo and wish he was on tv more often. Great bloke.”
“Nice to see John Virgo looking well, at the recent world championships he basically did a stand up show and it should be a TV series,” beamed one more.
