A bit surprised to see Celebrity Countdown in the More4 schedules next Tuesday at 9pm, presented by Nick Hewer with Rachel and Susie, with Jo Brand playing Jay Rayner.

Just seems odd that they have a very successful and funny celebrity version of Countdown established on C4, so they're going to launch a cheaper inevitably less fun version fronted by the worst host (yet somehow second longest running) host they've ever had.
It's great that everybody gets sarcasm.

What’s wrong with Nick? I really like the man, he feels much more relatable then the Deses did to me. Des L was too grumpy and Des O was too showbiz (I loved him doing Take Your Pick years back, but not for Countdown).

Suspect Rachel is alot more pregnant in the evenings than during the day.

Dire dry start though - I'm a maths fan but a 5 minute explanation of a numbers game from 20 years ago isn't the way to start a show.

I agree Nick is a whole lot better than either Des ever was, but Jeff Stelling was literally perfection sadly he couldn't resist the football!

Don't really watch too much these days though although I do like it when Paul Zenon is on with his old school magic tricks, far better entertainment than someone in DC just waffling about nothing for 5 minutes!

Celebrity...It was all a bit weird really - why change the entire scoring system especially considering they're hardly throwing 'dumb' celebrities at these!
