Remember him on Exchange! What happened!
And Rick Edwards seemed to be doing his fair share of presenting during that.
ortis was doing the main show.
A stick of chewing gum has been found for 20p in a shop in Battersea.. and for 85p in a shop in Twickenham!
Bet Ortis wont have trouble remembering Ricks name now.
'it's a glorious sunny day here in... the studio. We've seen some action. Jessica Ennis. Goodnight'
Time now... for another break... When we come back we will of course have... erm... more coverage for you... live from... here.
Fucking hell. This will go down as a disaster of Sam Fox & Mick Fleetwood @ The Brits.
What the hell was he doing?
Now I'm crying. Oh dear The Honourable Leo St Leo Usain Bolt.
What's the honourable Leo St Leo?
Maybe it was something to do with the Honorable Lord Coe and he read it wrong? It's not related but it all just came out at once.
Already feel quite sorry for him. He's always so enthusiastic on the Gadget Show, now he'll likely be a trembling husk of a presenter for the rest of his life :(
he was not great on this.
However, having been an extra for when they did a piece on recreating bullet-time with Flip cameras, you realise how tightly scripted things are (or appeared to be). Lost a little bit of my Suzi Perry crush after that experience.
and he received the Order of Jamaica after the 2008 Olympics (hence 'the Honourable'). Deley just made a total balls of it due to his inability to read from the autocue
(I could have just looked at wikipedia). Makes a lot more sense than my interpretation. Still hilarious though
the whole of the Fox'n'Fleetwood show is on YouTube (or at least was circa this year's Brits)?
He was obvious just really nervous, then messed up once or twice, which only makes you more nervous.
It gives me an excuse to watch the clip again
My favourite is still
The fastest man on no legs - Oscar Pistorious!!
shows hows good jake humphrey is in the pitlane
sign this lad up ITV and get him presenting your Champions League coverage.
Watch out Tyldesley, you've got competition.
here's three excellent examples of their craft.
It's gonna be a good Friday night for me!
In July 2011 it was announced that Deley would be anchoring Channel 4's live coverage of the IAAF World Athletics Championships from Daegu, South Korea. Deley began on 27 August but struggled to win the audience as some viewers complained about his stilted delivery, mixing up his colleagues names and constantly mis-reading his lines Jessica Ennis goodnight.
In kinda related news. Channel 4 News just referred to Dai Green as 'David Dai Green'. Bit of an odd thing to do.
But it is wikipedia...
and that's why I thought it sounded odd. Like the equivalent of saying 'Mohamed Mo Farah', or 'Pierre Peter Frenchbloke'.
The pained look on Michael Jordan's face.
And "Michael Johnson. Tyson Gay. In the same studio..."
Like he's about to collapse into a heap onto the studio floor crying his eyes out.
Otis, is that you?
