As I have probably said before, I do think the decline of British television can be specifically dated to Game For A Laugh [Citation Needed :-)] which was responsible for a step change in crass pointlessness. Nevertheless I salute Mr Beadle.
Of course, it is probably a great source of confusion that there is another Jeremy Beadle, author of two gay detective novels, Doing Business and Death Scene. I wonder if anyone has been severely confused, thinking they were buying a detective novel by the TV funster?
It is surprisingly difficult to find evidence that they are two people on the web - first evidence was the Google cache of Google hit 44.
Sadly, the other Beadle died (of AIDS) at an even younger age than his more famous namesake.
