August 9th 2007: Northamptonshire, UK: Cheggers, Chegwin, Keith - call him what you will, there is no denying he's one of Britain's best loved TV personalitiesand he'll be 'round your house this Christmas with Cheggers' Party Quiz!
Keith Chegwin rose to fame back in the mid 1970s, when at the tender age of 17, he secured a rôle as a presenter on Multicoloured Swap Shop, which ran from 1976 to 1982, making a household name of the Merseyside lad we've all come to know and love.
With over 7,000 TV shows as a presenter under his belt - most famously, Cheggers Plays Pop - and a myriad guest appearances in the nation's most popular television programmes, Keith Chegwin has also fronted his own radio shows, written regular newspaper columns and made several records! The fact that there are very few Britons that have never heard of him is testament not only to his popularity, which is due in no small part to his infectious charm, but also to the fact that he remains one of the UK's hardest working stars.
Spanning more than three decades, Cheggers' career has seen more than a few ups and downs but he has always bounced back with renewed vim, and maintained his position in the very hearts of the UK's TV viewing public. Now he adds another feather in his cap as the presenter of Oxygen Games' new quiz title; Cheggers' Party Quiz, enthusing;
"This is such a fantastic project - I'm so excited by it! I have been very impressed by Oxygen Games, because of their enthusiasm for this project and I hope that everyone who plays the game thinks it is great fun."
Party with Cheggers this Christmas, with the year's most wonderfully wacky party Quiz! Get it now, or he'll be 'round your house! Cheggers' Party Quiz out on WiiTM, Playstation®2 and PC, November 2007.
