He actually got an OBE.

So he got two vowels and a consonant.

Well he isn't as legendary as say Jeremy Paxman but they give these awards out like sweets so I don't see why he shouldn't, he's been doing Countdown for 20 odd years which is an achievement in itself.
It's just a job though int it? There are loads of people who have been doing the same job really well for longer than 20 years...??

It seems that anyone now gets on the Queen's birthday honours list nowadays.

Well I'm not picking a fight either, I'm commenting on the fact that someone is on the public eye greatly increases their chances of getting some kind of award. In fact, you're almost guaranteed one if you stay in the public eye long enough.
Hmmmm, I wonder if I could be the next Countdown presenter... I think the Countdown ratings would plummit if he ever leaves.

Richard Whitley is also a reporter on Yorkshire TV apparantly and is very dedicated. I think he also does stuff out of his count down role which is why he has been given the award.
