Explain to me how the fuck Nick Hewer was Countdown host for nearly a decade

Feel like it was about three years.

He started hosting in 2012 and finished in 2021. That is nine years, whereas a decade is ten, so he nearly - but not quite, missing out by one year - presented the show for a decade.

Interestingly this is the same timespan for which he was on The Apprentice.

I am a terrible person and I sincerely apologise.

Countdown has had a really weird run of presenters, hasn’t it.

…Anne Robinson?

ugh

Jeff Stelling was alright, but they’ve never come close to getting someone like Richard Whiteley

Quick question: what’s Countdown?

Does anyone else read countdown with a faint version of the timer ending sound behind it

They should get Jermaine Jenas to do it.

I liked Nick Hewer.
Des Lynam - Des O’Connor was a strange time.
Anne Robinson is rubbish.
