...who used to present a quiz show in the late eighties or early nineties?

I think one of the characters in Upstart Crow rips him off.

Anybody know who I mean?

Earlier than Justin Lee Knobhead ( grin) , posher than Noel Edmonds. Curlier than either of them, but you're in the right ballpark of slightly leonine looking men.

I think the character of Will Kemp in Upstart Crow is ripping off Ricky Gervais.

Rory! That's him.

Thank you. The brain itch was driving me mad! smile

* I think the character of Will Kemp in* ^*Upstart Crow^ is ripping off Ricky Gervais.*

Yes! Wholesale.

And I'm thinking the one played by Steve Spiers is a send up of Rory (?)
