Do The Sums: More Countdown Auditions, With The Guardian

by | 30th, July 2008

AUDITIONS for the person to replace Carol Vorderman as the nation’s favourite TV brain box move on to day 3: The Guardian:

HEIDI BLAKE (Guardian)

So, farewell then, Carol Vorderman. Following 26 years of co-hosting Channel 4’s flagship gameshow, the woman recently dubbed “Mrs Countdown” is set to take her final bow after reportedly being given 48 hours to accept a 90% cut to her £1.2m pay packet or resign

ZOE WILLIAMS (Guardian)

But to return to that 90% – as any true maths fan would – that was a cut from 800 grand, so it would have left her with £80k.

LEIGH HOLMWOOD (Guardian)

Previous reports put her salary between £900,000 and £1m a year.
