BOLTON presenter Vernon Kay will appear on a programme this weekend which celebrates television game shows.

Come On Down! The Game Show Story will feature classic archive footage and interviews with some of the biggest names in entertainment.

In the first episode of the four-part series, host Bradley Walsh meets veteran presenter Bruce Forsyth.

Self-confessed Bruce Forsyth fan, Vernon, who is married to Strictly Come Dancing presenter Tess Daly, said: “If you watch Bruce closely, and trust me I have, because he manhandles my wife on a regular basis, but what he’s good at is — he’s his own floor manager, so he bosses the stage, and when he’s with a contestant he’ll literally grab their arm and drag them to where they’re supposed to stand.”

Come On Down! The Game Show Story is on ITV1 at 7pm on Sunday.
