He 'reminds' me of Ian Bleasdale

but he was born in 1952 so this photo from 1965/70 can't be him.

Can I throw Harry Corbett into the mix?, the early Sooty and Sweep presenter.

Not Sepp Blatter either, but might be related ....

Yeah, I'm blaming Google Images for providing a link to a site which showed Blofeld with an Arlott caption, I fell in ... here is Arlott, and it's not him!

John Arlott used to be my favourite cricket commentator, there has been no one like him since.

Yes I checked that list too Nanna52!! Did not come up with anything other than what we have. So perhaps not.

Thanks everyone, we seem to have a lot of candidates.
