Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Jonathan "Wossy" Ross is a British television personality and host. Despite being a thoroughly Mean Brit, he has somehow managed to maintain a reputation of being the UK's sweet old celebrity uncle. He is on every TV show.

His long-running BBC One chat show Friday Night with Jonathan Ross was temporarily suspended in 2008, following a series of abusive prank calls from Ross and Russell Brand to Andrew Sachs. Ross finally left the BBC formally in 2010. Many people joked that he would be on TV again after a couple of months anyway, and they were right: he currently hosts a new chat show on ITV 1. He's also presented the annual British Comedy Awards from 1991 to 2007, and 2009 onwards. Additionally, Ross used to be a Panel Show regular, including several appearances on The Big Fat Quiz of the Year. (Which, to be fair, is produced by a production company owned by him and his wife.)

It is a matter of debate as to how far his career recovered after the nadir of "Sachsgate". In the opinion of many people, it was irreparably damaged, with people once well-disposed to Ross wanting him to join his brother, the now seldom-seen on TV Paul Ross, in obscurity and outer darkness.

Famous for suffering from Elmer Fudd Syndrome, which makes him incapable of pronouncing his own name.
