How about Eammon Holmes in the chair? He has done quizzes before.

Not a bad first show for Colin. I already like his catchphrase at the end of the show compared to Nick’s “You be sure of it..”

Sad to see Nick go. After Des, and Jeff, I wanted someone who would be there long-term, I think eight years? is a good run for any tv presenting gig

Nine years. Started in January 2012, and he leaves at some point next year.

Channel 4 are asking on Core4 for suggestions for Nick's replacement, as well as asking for views on Colin.

My suggestions were: Eamonn Holmes, Liza Tarbuck, Alastair Stewart, Clive Anderson, Chris Hollins, Fern Britton, Nicki Chapman, Ed Balls, Rev Richard Coles, Matt Allwright

They’re going to struggle to get them all round that desk.

I thought Colin was a pretty decent fit to be honest
Write that down in your copybook now.

Enjoyed having Jeff Stelling back in a quiz environment this week on House of Games and would welcome him back. Colin fits well, but is a safe choice - but sometimes that is exactly what the show needs. Liza Tarbuck has experience.

Be nicer and more tolerant to each other. Them's the rules.
I think after being well received as Nick's temporary replacement, it's a no brainer to give it to Colin Murray should he want the job.

I believe I suggested Greg on one of the first few pages.
Have you washed your hands?
