let’s have a think about people who used to be on tv and now aren’t on tv as much.

i’ll go first… miquita oliver.


#2

Loved Miquita Oliver. Didn’t she start on T4 when she was 16 or something daft?
I like Nat Coombs who used to do the Channel 4 live NFL coverage


#3

yeah she was sitting gcses when the first series of popworld was on

dunno who nat coombs is, pal


#4

Only ever done NFL stuff, AFAIK.
Quite liked Rick Edwards and June Sarpong. Basically T4 had good presenters (it also had Vernon Kay)


#5

Jameela Jamil :heart:


#8

trying to think what her presenting brand was. basically a more awkward alexa chung? except she used to be a bit more #relatable - she’d go on about how she used to be fat (she had a column in a magazine and i swear she mentioned it every other issue). now the face of holland and barrett (maybe this was a couple of years ago) and lives in 'merica.


#9

i watched this weeks episodes tonight. his bits to camera while the contestants were in the audition room were atrocious - fist pumps and singing along. he wasn’t a shoulder to cry on either cause it seems they’re saving that for bootcamp.


#10

yeah you’ve basically nailed it, but she had a much more natural sense of comic timing than Chung (no idea about her columns)


#11

miquita was great. I will say tomasz schafernaker as im always glad to see he still has a job.
