Les Dennis, 68, was well known as the host of Family Fortunes from 1987 until 2002. The show recently returned with new host Gino D’ACampo presenting as Les gave his verdict in an exclusive chat with Express.co.uk, as well as sharing if he’d ever return.
Family Fortunes returned tonight with the latest episode of the popular quiz show.
The latest series has been hosted by Good Morning Britain star and TV chef Gino.
However, Les did admit how he found it odd to not be the one in the presenting seat anymore.
Speaking about if he’d ever go back for a celebrity special, he admitted he wasn’t sure.
The former Coronation Street actor said: “I don’t know.
“I remember when Vernon [Kay] was taking over it, his family were on it and I was part of it.
“Ant and Dec hosted it and I went on to that for the Gameshow Marathon.
“It was interesting because I felt like somebody had broken into my house.”
Despite the odd feeling of not being in the hosting seat, Les went on to share how much he enjoys Gino in the role.
He added: “But I think Gino’s doing a great job.
“So I don’t see that that’s on the cards in the future,
“He is doing really well and I wish him luck.”
Les is about to tour the country with the new adaptation of the musical Fat Friends.
He plays Fergus in the series which hits the road in January as it tours around the UK.
It’s based on the television show of the same name, which aired from 2000 until 2005 on ITV.
Created by Kay Mellor, the original starred Ruth Jones, James Corden, Sheridan Smith and Alison Steadman.
Les explained how it was Kay’s involvement in the show which persuaded him to get involved in this new adaptation.
He said: “I always wanted to work with Kay.
“We’ve talked about it and kept meeting each other at functions and talking about it.
“And then when she asked me I thought, ‘Well, yeah, let’s do this!’
“I loved the TV show when it was out and this is a really good musical version of that.”
