BBC's Robert Peston And Eddie Mair Get Twitter Seeing Double

The news that Robert Peston and Eddie Mair are to host a Radio 4 show together was greeted with glee by their fans – and has given rise to a meme comparing them to other famous double acts.

The fun began when the duo appeared together on the cover of Radio Times:

One of Mair’s colleagues than put together a montage of famous double acts, which the PM presenter tweeted:

A colleague, inspired by the new @RadioTimes has put this together. Join Hooch and me Monday at 11pm @bbcradio4 pic.twitter.com/poxFGZzLqD

That inevitably led to a flood of tributes from their Twitter followers, many of which the pair retweeted. Monkey compiles some of Mair’s best retweets below.

His favourite was an image of Sooty and Sweep:

All great fun – and brilliant promotion for the show, which starts on Monday at 11am – although Twitter users inked by the flood of images will be glad to hear that Peston has returned to tweeting about the Greek debt crisis.
