Men are the weakest link, goodbye
Anne Robinson is pictured with the all-female team of Countdown, which she will join on Monday June 28 as the show’s first female host. The 76-year-old has replaced Nick Hewer as presenter and will appear alongside Rachel Riley, far left, and Susie Dent, left, ending the Channel 4 show’s 39-year run of male presenters, going all the way back to Richard Whiteley, pictured below with Kenneth Williams and Ted Moult in 1982. “Three Girls Do Countdown – who wouldn’t want to watch?” said Robinson, who previously gained a fearsome reputation as host of The Weakest Link, her last quiz show.
