1. Sincere condolences to all Richard’s family and friends – he will be greatly missed

  2. Life won’t be the same without Richard Whiteley and Countdown. So sad!

  3. Richard Whiteley has given me so many happy and entertaining viewing hours on countdown. I will miss his cheeriness and jokes. Sincere condolences to his family

  4. I was on holiday when I heard the news of Richard Whiteley’s death. What a blow! He was self-effacing, very funny, beautifully politically incorrect and I shall miss him so very much.

  5. Just a small note saying “It was a pleasure meeting you ~ thanks for great memories of my brief spell with Richard & the “Countdown Team” ~ condolences to all his family & friends” ~ Phil & Sue Wass
