Des O'Connor is leaving to concentrate on his 36th album (must get that to go with my other 35) ;)
Carol Vorderman is leaving too. Who would you like to see replace them?

Vorderman was asked to take a 90% pay cut, which would still put her on £100,000 a year. If you can get that kind of dosh for doing sums, heck I vote for myself as her replacement. I have better legs too.

When I was very small, I used to think Des O'Connor was very handsome. I even liked his record 'I Pretend' - but to quote a Dylan song - 'but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now'.
Old but spicey!

I always thought Tom O'Connor would have been ideal for the host's job. As for the letters, anyone can turn a few cards round - it's the numbers that will prove difficult. I imagine that'll be done by computer now, but some of the magic of Countdown will be lost.

Maybe a double act like Little and Large would work.

What other geriatric presenters/actors/all round entertainers are in need of a job?

Cannon and Ball but I don't like them. Peters and Lee but obviously the blind one can't do the word game.

His being dead would be something of a drawback too.

I was always amazed that with all her money she did not employ a stylist to help her dress better.
