To not want to see Matt Baker's face every time I switch on the TV?

Pleasant though it may be (although not my type).

He's obviously 'face of the moment' for the BBC but why on earth is he fronting the gymnastics? It's about as far removed from Countryfile as I can imagine. Does he have some sporting pedigree I'm unaware of?

I think (but don't quote me) he's an ex-gymnast.

He's lovely! And he used to be a gymnast.

Yes. He was a serious gymnast.

He did the gymnastics long before countryfile I think.

He is an ex gymnast. Was shocked to read on another thread he had away with his partner on strictly a few years back ( alledgedly! ) he comes across as the faithful husband type..

He's done gymnastics for years.

he used to be a junior gymnast

he also wanted to be a physiotherapist but didn't get good enough academic grades

he gets on my wick too

Thrilling gymnastics no matter who's presenting it!

Well that's a revelation to me! As you were Mr Baker grin

I still think folk are overused on some channels though. Let someone else have a look in!

Who was his strictly partner ?

Well, my fingers still work so I googled my own question. Aliona.
