Ironic that he was recently in those Channel 4 stings where he was saying that he wanted to be remembered as being the "First face on Channel 4" - well he has certainly achieved that.
I personally remember being very excited about the arrival of Channel 4 after years of only having 3 TV
channels, and remember watching Countdown for the first time. It'll never be the same without him.
RIP Mr. Whiteley.
