A completely useless piece of trivia - the daughter of Bob Holness (Countdown) was in Toto Cuelo - Ros Holness :D

EDIT ^^^^^^^ Ok I goofed - it was Blockbusters not Countdown! :-rofl2

Do I get a bonus point for such a useless bit of trivia? :D

Would that be the same Bob Holness who apocryphally played sax on Baker Street and presented Blockbusters, never saw him on Countdown.
