I’m a sucker for things which creep up on me and take me by surprise. I put way too much store in them. I end up admiring them because of some kind of warped sense of value on my part.
News that Carol Vorderman “felt forced to quit” Channel 4 show Countdown has upgraded what began as quite a surprising story yesterday into a strangely exciting one.
If the news is true – and why would one dispute it – then its quite a sad end to quite a long held position in TV presentation.
I did always rather like Countdown.
