So much so that Laurence insisted that he himself was initially hesitant to return to the show in which he starred as a designer since 1996, before taking on the introductory role in 2003.
On whether he would have liked Carol to return as the host of the show, he told The Sun: ‘No, and with my hand on my heart, what the producers and Channel 4 have done is really very smart. They’ve moved on and it wouldn’t have worked if it had been Jurassic Park, it had to be a reinvention.
And to be fair, I resisted for a long time. He was very interested that they should really look for possibilities with other people.
‘Otherwise it would just be a rebirth, actually it would always have to be a reboot.’
