Mr Nowakowski said: “I am really excited.

It’ll be me like Phillip Schofield without the gray hair

“I’ll have carte blanche on the show. My biggest worry is swearing on TV. When I got my screen test for the show, they said they needed a guy, they thought I had a nice mustache and I had the thickest British accent they had heard in their life.
“Colorado is an extremely diverse state. They wanted something different for the show. I’ll bring that piece of Yorkshire into the show.
“My TV station has a Bradford City scarf on it. I’m trying to push for the show to come live from Bradford for a week.
“This is another chapter for me. The hard work begins now for me. It’s something that left me speechless.
“I had an amazing chapter with Scars and that door is still open.”
