Me­lanie Sykes is ‘our Gra­ham’

TV Times - - Interview -

Agen­er­a­tion of view­ers grew up with Gra­ham Skid­more – or ‘our Gra­ham’ as he was best known – in­tro­duc­ing Cilla, but this time Me­lanie Sykes is be­hind the mi­cro­phone.

‘Be­ing the voice of Blind Date is a big deal!’ says Me­lanie. ‘The be­gin­ning of the show is so dis­tinc­tive. I re­mem­ber watch­ing the orig­i­nal with my mum and dad. It’d be on as I was get­ting ready to go out, so I’d be en­joy­ing Cilla with my rollers in, paint­ing my nails. I was thrilled when Paul asked me to do it. I said yes straight away!’
