Bradley Walsh is on television screens almost every evening as he welcomes four new contestants onto The Chase to face Jenny Ryan, Paul Sinha, Shaun Wallace, Anne Hegerty or Mark Labbett. Now, it has been reported Bradley could be taking a step away from ITV to host Blankety Blank for the BBC.
The show, which was hosted by Sir Terry Wogan from its debut in 1979 until 1983, looks set to be making a return.
Les Dawson took over the role from Sir Terry until 1990 before Paul O’Grady presented as Lily Savage on the BBC from 1997-1999, and on ITV from 2001 to 2002.
