Switched on to Gems yesterday and was surprised to see Steve Bennett. Apparently he had stepped in as Liv's car had broken down. She didn't arrive yesterday and this morning Rae Carpenter is presenting as "Liv has car trouble" and " she may not be able to" get to the studio until 3pm. So Rae will be presenting for seven hours (???). I'm surprised Liv is unable to hire a car or take a train down from Harrogate/York. I'm not unsympathetic but, as this is par for the course, I admire the support of other presenters to provide cover.
