Blankety Blank began this year (2016) in focus, due to the death of its original host, Terry Wogan, and ended it through a one off (i.e. ITV testing the water) special, hosted by David Walliams.

It's a show that needs a good host, because the format is so simple it can become a bit dull.

Every host has brought their own spin to it, and if given the chance I'm sure Walliams would do the same.

One thing that is for sure though is that if you do it well, the show becomes synonymous with you. And that's a potentially wonderful thing. Whether ITV take the plunge, risk the legacy, by bringing it back full time remains to be seen.
