A great light entertainment presenter with cracking hand control

Location: Sancroft Street, Kennington, Lambeth, SE11

Description: 'Ted Rogers' (20 July 1935 to 2 May 2001) was a fast-talking English comedian and light entertainer who started his career as a Redcoat entertainer and is best remembered as the only host in the original series of the Yorkshire Television gameshow 3-2-1.

Rogers was born in Kennington, south London and went to school in Lambeth - in fact this school - St Mary's Secondary School, then 'St Mary's' and the same school which his idol Charlie Chaplin had attended 40 years earlier.

Rogers achieved his biggest success as the presenter of ITV's variety gameshow 3-2-1. The first edition of the programme was shown on Friday 15 September 1978; it was so successful that ITV bosses moved it to a prized Saturday night slot, where it remained for the following ten years.

Shortly before his death, he made several commercials for fast food chain, McDonald's. His final television appearance saw him playing the host of a downmarket quiz show in the BBC children's sitcom ChuckleVision. Had he lived, he would have worked with his old friend Jackie Mason on a Vaudeville-type act in America which was due to start in October 2001.
