As the BBC London thread is archived I will post here ... it was like stepping back in time today with Charley Figgis presenting the lunchtime BBC London bulletin - very much like the old Newsroom SE days (and I think she also used to crop up on the very early days of BBC LDN).

Charley still works for BBC London as a planning editor.

Nice to see her back in front of the camera all the same!

Don't know where to post this really, but thought it was worth noting because TV Forum perennial favourite 'Big Moira' Moira Stuart is hosting a new show on Sky 1 called The Big Spell, a variant on the American 'spelling bee' format, along with Sue Perkins and Joe Lycett. There's a trailer currently running on Sky 1 for it.

Absolutely! She was on yesterday too, must be doing holiday cover.

Must have been a few weeks ago - he does appear infrequently still as a relief presenter. Hopefully he doesn't just vanish without saying farewell if he does leave the channel.

Since he hasn't made any appearances since this post and last appeared on 21st August, its looking likely he has sadly left. Shame if he has indeed left without a farewell, although maybe like John Stapleton he didn't want a big fanfare.

Well I eat my words, he hasn't left yet as he's doing the 7-12 on the News Channel tonight.

He had previously been hosting some weekend programmes on Classic FM, so maybe this was the first chance to have him back on the news channel.

He had been doing the classic FM work for a number of years, and it was almost certainly pre-recorded in some form (as he has been on the News Channel and Classic FM at the same time on occasion.)
