Ok, here goes!

I'm sure we pretty much know who the first person to be seen on Channel 4 in November 1982. So taking the step up a little -

Can you name the first two people to be seen on Channel 5 in 1997?. One is a stand-up comedian and the other a TV presenter mainly of 'outdoor' ish programmes.

(Hope it's not to tough, not fully understanding the pitching level, yet)

I thought the first people seen on C5 were The Spice Girls, singing "5-4-3-2-1"?

On reflection and after further research Sequin - The Spice Girls were autually the first people 'seen' on Channel 5. My bad and i should have worded the question better. The actual answer i was, and thought were

Tim Vine and Julia Bradbury.

So, i give way to you Sequin, The ball is in your court now, all yours!

I still can't believe I actually sat and watched Channel 5 fire-up for the first time, and yes, the first thing you saw and heard were the Spice Girls. Where did it all go wrong...
