There's a certain amount of thumb-sucking in the papers about Alan Yentob's future at the BBC. In the FT, top media analyst Claire Enders says the headlines about his charity work since August are a real problem “It is difficult to see how he can focus, given the real questions over his management and the personal difficulties of being scrutinised in his role at the Kids Company.”

Nigel Walley, who runs digital strategy consultancy Decipher is firmer: “He is the worst example of the entitlement culture inside the BBC. His address book has value, but at some point the trade-off with his toxicity takes over.”

In the Independent media editor Ian Burrell says Alan is hanging on, as Lord Hall reviews top level management structures."He intends to be part of the shake-up discussions and no one at the top of the BBC thinks he should leave."
