Not to mention rowing across the Atlantic and taking part in a race to the South Pole. Oh, and he's President of the Campaign for National Parks and a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.

There seem some very odd targets on this thread, unless of course, those nominating these people have achieved so much more in their own lives, but still find time to hang around internet forums making cheap digs at well known people. <_<

I'd suggest he did/was able to do those things because he's a minor celebrity.

He presents TV segments, and they're virtually unwatchable to me as he comes over as having very little, if any, sincerity.

Others disagree.

Sue Barker. She used to play tennis and provide barely believable cover stories for Cliff. Now she is an appalling broadcaster.

Isn't that what the Internet is for? ;)

As for Ben Fogle, he's articulate, amiable and doesn't impose his personality on everything he presents. I'm not a particular fan of his work, but he's a decent presenter.

I'd say Andrew Castle's career as some kind of expert takes a bit more explaining.

Nah, he's posh, presentable and always available. I wouldn't say he's talented though.

Good call on Barker and Castle. Am I right in thinking he's the one from the awful ambulance chasing adverts?

 You have just described Boycott, too. Shoe reference aside.

There are parallels I agree. However Boycott does occasionally entertain, although usually by accident and I'm not aware whether Willis has any convictions for violence.

Quite. And I don't see anyone playing 'Willis Bingo'. B)

Cilla Black, I never understood how she managed to hold onto that gig on Blind Date for so long. I'm too young to remember her singing career, but I've heard some of her stuff and I think it's awful.
