Why Campbell Live should live

Late last week it became apparent that current affairs show Campbell Live may be for the chop To say that this displeases me would be a major understatement. My 1 year old refusing to eat anything but avocado and toast “displeases” me. Campbell Live facing the axe makes me downright furious.
