Richard “Twice Nightly” Whiteley, OBE, died yesterday. He presented the long-running program that my Mum never misses. He had 500 ties. He was famously savaged by a ferret. He had TV stamina. He died from pneumonia aged 61.

Like Richard, I have a huge collection of ties (which I never wear) and I used to feed my brother’s ferrets (which he never wore). Without Richard, the word “avuncular” will never be the same.

I’ll have a consonant, two vowels, and a consonant, please Carol.
