carol vordermanCarol Vorderman quits Countdown

What will become of the Channel 4 show now?

It’s the channel’s longest running programme and after the demise of the popular Yorkshireman Richard Whitely, Vorderman had to strike up an on screen chemistry with the blue rinse’s favourite Des Lynham and then Des O’Connor, who decided to quit earlier this week (because at 76 his ticker couldn’t take any more of Carol.)

The Guardian poses it’s own conundrum today, how do you replace Carol? (By the way I loved this sentence in the article – after 26 years dazzling viewers with her mental arithmetic and low-key sex appeal)

Well there’s always Caroline Flint, except she doesn’t have much of a brain, or you could try Theresa May, who keeps her talent in her feet, as opposed to this Theresa May, or there is Hazel Blears who will make you green with envy, or failing any other bright ideas (or when you’ve ran out of consonants) you could settle for South Tyneside’s delectable choice South Shields Cllr. Joan Meeks.

What do you think?

  1. Justine Greening, perhaps? Good with figures, young and with (I guess) some “glamour” (I’m no expert in that field, so am only guessing) and really quite a good Conservative MP — talent I spotted within the 2005 intake, along with Gove and Afriyie.
