Blind Date’s Our Graham is dead at 90

- BY KEITH PERRY

TV legend Graham Skidmore, known to millions as the voice of Blind Date, has died at the age of 90.

Nicknamed “Our Graham” by Blind Date presenter Cilla Black, he was heard, but never seen, on the show through the 1980s and 1990s.

He also did the voiceover for Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer show Shooting Stars from 1993 to 2002.

The father of three suffered from vascular dementia and spent his final years living in Kent.

He died on December 27, but news of his death has only just come out.

Daughter Catherine Johnson, 52, said her father got into voiceovers after appearing in musicals.

She said: “He was very modest. He never really wanted his face to be seen.”
