Jeff’s spelling?

Is Jeff Stelling really going to inherit the Countdown presenter’s chair from Des O’ Connor?

Various news sources are today reporting that the Soccer Saturday host is in line to take over the job, and while his name seems to have come right out of left-field I have to admit that I can’t think of a better candidate. Jeff has been absent from the screens of terrestrial viewers for some time, but has earned himself a cult following on Sky Sports News’ regular footy fix. Most of the viewers of Countdown probably have no idea of who Stelling is, but his combination of witty banter, repartee with co-presenters and his natural television presence should serve the show very well indeed. But who can pick the numbers and letters now that Carol has gone?
